This week Sarah and Julia read chapter 7 of “What Would Virginia Woolf Do?” (Affiliate link) by Nina Lorez Collins – and this chapter is entitled “Health”. The author runs down an entire laundry list of health problems that affect women of a certain age. And while it’s not always super fun to think about these problems, it’s much better to be prepared and take action than to ignore them until they get worse. These are also not all related to or due to menopause. Some are just because we’re getting older. So some good and bad news in that. We’ve discussed many of these health issues on the show in the past, but we’ll spend a little time going over the biggest concerns we have. In case you’re interested, here’s a list of afflictions aging women may encounter: Vaginal dryness Hot flashes Incontinence Insomnia Snoring (afternoon slump)? Brain fog Osteoporosis Osteopenia Cancer Heart disease Eyesight loss Hearing loss High cholesterol High blood pressure Diabetes STDs Arthritis Thyroid problems Gum disease And here are some Health Screenings to consider: Mammogram Colonoscopy Cervical cancer Blood work Eyes an ears Let us know what you think – and what health issues are your biggest concerns.
