I've Run Out of Cope with Emily Barclay
Show Notes

When Emily Barclay learned that the word "perimenopause" applied to her, she went online to seek out help and support and found that it simply didn’t exist. Instead of dissolving into a pool of her own hormonal tears and sweat, she set up Perimenopause Hub, bringing together experts across different disciplines from around the world and creating a community where women could feel less alone. As if that and her pink and turquoise hair weren't cool enough, she prides herself on having shunned the stereotypical forms of adulting and lives in the UK with her partner, five dogs, and 14 hives of bees. We talk about the importance of tracking your cycle and symptoms, the power of setting boundaries, and how a hug can help when you've run out of cope. They don't call her The Peri-godmother for nothing.
