Getting over your Ovaries: How to Make the Change of Life Your Bitch
is Coming Soon from author Lisa Jey Davis:
Before “Getting Over Your Ovaries: How to Make the Change of Life Your Bitch,” was even a twinkle in the author’s eye, Lisa Jey Davis went “sans ovaries” for medical reasons at the young age of 46. As the dust – errr – ovaries settled and she started to get on with life, she was incredibly shocked by all the changes her body was undergoing as a result of her surgery. The need to replenish her body’s hormones was the sole piece of information dolled out by her doctor. She had yet to connect the dots that her decision to remove her ovaries meant instant menopause or that her body would think she was entering old age. What this meant for her lifestyle or her emotions (and the well being of anyone around her) was a whole other story. She certainly never dreamed she’d be in danger of becoming a card-carrying member of the Red Hat Society, Silver Sneakers or worse yet, the Pill Box Clan. She wandered around asking anyone who would listen “Why didn’t anyone ever tell me about this?”
Though she was too young to undergo this “Change of Life” (blasted surgery…), and though the sex education in parochial school, her parents and others in her life hadn’t warned her of the coming bodily changes that could (and do) make grown men cry, she wasn’t about to let that slow her down.
After looking in the mirror one too many times and seeing more fine lines than usual, changes to her hair and a ‘monthly bloat’ that wouldn’t go away, it was time to make this thing otherwise known as menopause her BITCH and live to tell (and write) about it.
What she ended up with was a highly entertaining and inspiring journey of discovery, some hilarious observations and a gaggle of tips to share with every woman in every city. Whether entering menopause, or simply trying to survive someone who is, “Getting Over Your Ovaries – How to Make ‘The Change of Life’ Your Bitch” will serve up the laughs as well as a good basic education about the cycles of life… how to LIVE despite them all.
