For most ladies, once past the forty-year old mark, each decade and milestone bring with them a new angst: "Another Year Older Ha! Ha!"; "Another Wrinkle? Ha! HA! HA!" scream the birthday cards! Don't you just hate them! Are you overwhelmed by pessimistic thoughts of melting unnoticed into the grey, invisible mass of the silver brigade? Have you stopped bothering about your figure? Your hair? Your nails? Your clothes? Your underwear? That dratted whisker on your chin? Those blasted pelvic floor exercises? Because noone will notice? Do you feel a nobody now that you are not in full-time work, juggling six careers with running a house, as well as looking after a partner, grandchildren and elderly parents? Do you feel as if you have lost the plot and direction in life?
Are your posture and what is left of your self-esteem racing to see which will reach rock bottom first?
It doesn't have to be like that! Help is at hand!
