My menopause jokes may be offensive to some women, and others won't appreciate them. But, I hope the majority of menopausal women will laugh-or at least submit a funny story of their own.

NursingMenopause is a recently launched website with a new twist on how women going through menopause can thrive through the change with simple lifestyle adaptations and a bit of humor.
In the spirit of a good chuckle, Glenda de Vries, author of the site, is asking women and men who are currently dancing with menopause to submit a true, humorous story in the "Personal Stories" section.
The website was created by a former registered nurse with a passion for healthy living. There are over 180 pages of information (with fresh content added every week) on how women can manage their menopause and premenopause symptoms without spending a fortune or making unhealthy choices. There are even pages on how men can deal with the menopause in a helpful way.
Women going through menopause-and their partners sleeping beside them- can read articles on how to deal with hot flashes, night sweats, memory loss, menopausal acne, dry itchy skin, vaginal changes, fluctuations in libido, moodiness, depression, irritability, headaches, hair loss, rosacea, breast tenderness, restless leg syndrome, insomnia, osteoporosis, andropause and more.
de Vries has created a diet for menopause which includes recipes rich in phytoestrogens to help balance the hormones, fitness advice, flat-belly exercises and good menopause jokes.
Each woman’s experience in intensity and duration of menopause is unique, and while some will have debilitating symptoms, others will be only slightly affected. de Vries states diet, lifestyle habits, natural remedies and the ability to laugh at oneself (and others) have a significant influence on the experience of menopause.
