Perhaps this isn't the correct forum but I'm the husband of a woman who is menopausal and life has become very difficult. I am attempting to support as best I can, but seem to be failing at every step. Is there any type of resource that can better educate me on how to be a better husband to my wife in need? Home life has become extremely difficult and I just seem to make it worse when trying to help. If this is the wrong forum I apologize for wasting your time. Thank you.
I think another helpful resource is the book A Woman's Guide to Menopause & Menopause by Dr Mary Jane Minkin M.D. and Carol V. Wright PhD. This book has resources in the back of the book which you may also find helpful. Just to let you know I have bought a copy of this book myself, nobody has asked me to, I'm not required to read this book or buy it. I bought this book because I have recently entered menopause and so the topic is one that I'm interested in. You can also check your library for this book if you don't wish to buy it.
