About the symptoms of perimenopause—the body’s natural transition to menopause—she says, “I started to feel unbalanced and anxious.
“At first I attributed it to the pandemic. But then the anxiety became more regular, until it became daily.
‘I was also listless. Something wasn’t right. I looked up the symptoms and saw that I had quite a few.
“So I spoke to someone on Zoom who came to the same conclusion. I was perimenopause.’
