Book brings humour to menopause

Local author Donna Randall aiming to connect with menopausal women through her recent book

Local author Donna Randall is hoping to help women everywhere get through menopause with a little humour with her book Menopause or Lunacy…That is the Question.

“The book is all about my adventures through menopause, but it’s something many women will be able to identify with,” said Randall.

The book, which Randall said was 10 years in the making, is published by Balboa House, the self-publishing arm of Hay House Publishing.

“I was on again off again writing, mostly because at the time I was writing it, I was going through menopause,” she laughed.

In all seriousness though, Randall said, the book addresses though topics such as lack of focused thinking, hot flashes and hormone loss that are common in pre-menopausal, menopausal and post-menopausal women.

“A lot of the book is humorous but it looks at some of the important issues that face menopausal women,” she said.

Randall added that the book is written into sections which are perfect for short reading stints.

“It’s fun because it’s something you can pick up and read and enjoy in short bits. For me, one of the most difficult things I encountered with menopause was the lack of focus, attention span and memory. I tried to make this book easy to pick up and read anywhere. And the most important part is that it is humorous, I really think that’s something we all need,” she said.

Randall’s book Menopause or Lunacy…That is the Question is available online on her website dfrent.org or at Tanner’s Books in Sidney, Doyle and Brown Home and Garden in Central Saanich (6666 West Saanich Rd.), Lollygobble in Sidney, Ivy’s Books in Oak Bay and Russell Books.
