It has certainly had an impact as I suddenly feel that I have permission to be me and not be apologetic for using up oxygen"

Why I became your specialist menopause coach...
"You are walking around this place as if you have the weight of the world on your shoulders," he said. "Not exactly befitting of a senior leader in the business, is it? Something for you to think about when you go home this evening."
I was shocked. I'd just received great recognition for delivering a spectacular piece of transformation for the business and my bonus the previous week.
Whatever self-confidence and self-esteem I had left, all but dissipated as I walked out of my boss's office that day.
I was really starting to feel paranoid. I had no idea what was going wrong. All I knew, was that I no longer had the support of my closest ally in the business and I was too worried to raise my concerns elsewhere.
I felt very alone. As the only female in a team of 18 men, I was grateful I'd built a strong team around me, upon whom, I was becoming increasingly dependent.
I was early 40's, had a young child at home with lifelong medical needs at home and a sole parent. I could not risk anything going wrong at work.
The stress I thrived on, working in fast-paced, business-critical change functions suddenly made me anxious instead of excited.
I had two occasions of feeling like I was going to pass out in meetings, my heart thumping, with no idea how to control it. My concentration and memory were shot.
I barely slept and when I did, I woke up drenched in sweat, to the point where I had to change the bedsheets. Ultimately I slept on a series of bath towels as they were easier to change!
My confidence was gone and I had nowhere to turn. I felt very flat, very down and alone.
I booked a week off and took my 8-year-old to Iceland for the week.
We laughed and joked and made snowmen and ate great food, went to the Blue Lagoon and saw the Northern lights, we were so happy.
On the last night, as I tucked my son under his covers and he looked at me through his thick dark brown eyelashes, he said "Mummy, I love playing with you. Can we take happy Mummy back home?"
As he fell asleep, I sat bolt upright in my bed and called my GP, thinking I had early-onset dementia.
Roll forward 5 months, I left my job. My GP told me I had 'just' been through menopause. I have to tell you, I was the happiest menopausal woman in Bristol because I didn't have early-onset dementia.
This is why I continually research menopause and retrained. To help prevent any other woman from going through what I did. It's not necessary. It's entirely preventable. It's what I teach in Spark The Change.
