Perimenopause and it's symptoms are awful!

I know part of the answer is because women's medical issues are not as important to the medical community and researchers as medical issues affecting men. Part of the answer is because it is "impolite" to discuss these things. It is not "nice". Really, that pisses me off because I can see commercials on tv for medications to help men with their erections (or lack of erection to be more correct), and that is mainstream conversation about men's health issues as they age. Why can't women's health issues about aging be a mainstream conversation?
I for one will do what I can to enlighten women and talk about these issues. Hopefully in my very small part and my very small sphere of influence I can open a conversation that women will participate in with each other, with their health care providers, and with society as a whole so this topic becomes less taboo and more "normal".
Women who are dealing with this I would love to hear what you are going through and whether this list is all you are dealing with or if we need to add to it.
