What to Expect When You’re Not Expected to Expect Anything Anymore

Did you see the title and flame-filled cover of this book, and did your weary, sweaty, confused, and exasperated soul scream, That one! That is the book for me!!? If so, I’d first like to extend my deepest sympathies, an ice pack, and some of these very helpful edibles. If it’s three in the morning as you’re reading this, as it may well be, you likely want those more than a book. But since I can’t really give you the other stuff, I can at least offer you this book. . . .

Perimenopause and menopause experiences are as unique as all of us who move through them. While there’s no one-size-fits-all, Heather Corinna tells you what can happen and what you can do to take care of yourself, all the while busting pernicious myths, offering real self-care tips—the kind that won’t break the bank or your soul—and running the gamut from hot flashes to hormone therapy. With big-tent, practical, clear information and support, and inclusive of so many who have long been left out of the discussion—people with disabilities; queer, transgender, nonbinary, and other gender-diverse people; BIPOC; working class and other folks—What Fresh Hell Is This? is the cooling pillow and empathetic best friend to help you through the fire.

Heather (they/them) is a dedicated queer feminist activist, author, educator, artist, teacher, organizer and innovator who grows big things from small seeds and works to create, cultivate and support positive growth and change. (Yes, sometimes even when it just looks like complaining. Sometimes it is just complaining.)

Heather is the founder, director, designer and editor of the web clearinghouse and organization Scarleteen, the first truly comprehensive sex, sexuality and relationships education site and resource for young people of its kind. Heather and the rest of the team at Scarleteen has provided millions of young people accurate and inclusive information and support every year for the last 20 years.
