    Susan’s story is about quietly adjusting to a new phase of life and dealing with the impact of physical and emotional changes of menopause from day to day. Susan opens up about the impact of sleep disturbance on her mood, on her family, and her work life. “I wasn't always upset and always snappy, but the truth is, that when you're walking around and you're very uncomfortable physically all the time… you do get upset. And that was something that I really felt I had to deal with.”
