Greetings From BlogHer’s New Health Editor

Confession: I recently turned 40, and at first, it was horrible. On my birthday, a friend took me out to lunch, where I broke down and blubbered about how I wasn’t where I’d hoped I’d be at this age -- in terms of my tumultuous marriage, my barely-making-ends-meet writing career, or my far-from-perfect parenting of our two-year-old daughter. ...more
