Mentalpause : . . . and Other Midlife Laughs Paperback July 1, 2001 by Laura Jensen Walker Do you often forget the words for common things, like “husband” or “bathtub”? Have you suddenly found sub-zero temperatures pleasant? Do you survive on chocolate supplements? Ask these questions of any woman who has been through menopause, is going through it, or is soon to hit it, and she’ll say yes (and then, most likely, cry). Laura Jensen Walker went into early menopause after her bout with cancer and can sympathize with other “mentalpause” sufferers and survivors. As in Thanks for the Mammogram!, she uses hilarious vignettes and a delightful mix of wit and wisdom to connect with her readers. With chapters about how “All Varicose Veins Lead to Rome” and “PMS Is a Picnic in the Park,” this book helps women dealing with “mentalpause” and those around them gain a better understanding—and certainly a lighter attitude—about this passage of life. Mentalpause . . . and Other Midlife Laughs will get readers laughing at themselves as they hear Laura lightheartedly describe her age spots, lament her sagging everything, and look anew at love after forty. From the Back Cover Do you often forget the words for common things, like "husband" or "sink"? Have you suddenly found subzero temperatures pleasant? Are your body parts starting to move south for the winter, spring, summer . . . ? Midlife and menopause can be . . . what was I going to say? Oh, yeah, they can be challenging times. But there are plenty of reasons to be thankful, too. Laura Jensen Walker went into early menopause after her bout with breast cancer. In this book, she celebrates life and helps you laugh in the midst of hot flashes and memory loss. As in Thanks for the Mammogram!, Laura shares hilarious vignettes and words of wisdom from her experience and those of other women who have "been there, done that," are there, or are headed into "mentalpause." Don’t worry when you find yourself entering "fuddy-duddydom" or looking at your mother’s face in the mirror; turn down the air-conditioning and join Laura for a lot of laughs instead. Laura Jensen Walker is an author, speaker, and breast cancer survivor who likes to touch lives with the healing power of laughter. Her books include Thanks for the Mammogram!, Dated Jekyll, Married Hyde, and Love Handles for the Romantically Impaired. Laura lives in Sacramento, California, with her husband, Michael, and their piano-playing dog, Gracie.
