Thanks so much for reading and commenting, Cecily. And wow — you have been through it. I’m *so* glad to hear that you are cancer free now, and I can’t imagine going through cancer PLUS menopause simultaneously. Puts things in perspective. I wish you all the best, and here’s hoping that at some point in our lives we’ll all be “cool.” ❤
