Dr. Kate McMichael is a retired doctor and she speaks freely about the challenges doctors are up against in treating patients with mental health issues, which I prefer to describe as happiness health issues.
We discuss everything that affects a person's state of mind, from relationship breakups to menopause. Kate explains how many women stay away from the doctor and suffer menopause alone because it is a natural bodily function and they are expected just to get through it. She also says how women don't want to go on HRT and fear that is what their doctor will do. However, you could bake Linseed bread! Here is a recipe if you are looking for a natural remedy to ease symptoms.
you can find a lot of information online about the menopause and the mind, plus I will be speaking to hormone specialists in my next series of A Walk And A Talk.
A modern day problem is that there is such pressure for every day to be an amazing day and for relationships always to be brilliant, that when our expectations are not met, we suffer. We also live in a society of instant gratification and I had a lovely chat with Father Rodney about modern life and how we can change it. You can watch that interview HERE.
Insight and enlightenment are required to change your life but that takes time. In the meantime, the doctor is a good place to start, so long as you know why you are going and what you would like from them. Kate explains that better than me!
Another great thing is to connect with positive people and copy them!!
I wish you well on your life journey. May you be happy and kind.
Are you at a turning point in your life? Do you want more from life, both your personal and work, but not sure how to change it? Then you may be interested in the second six-week Seeing Happiness Course I am running at the new library, starting on the 18th of September at 6.15pm.
I hope you receive a lot of inspiration and wisdom from the Walk And A Talk Series and maybe I will see you in Halifax.
May you journey each day with love and happiness in your heart.
Your friend and mentor
