"Your site gives
hope, inspiration and laughter to women when they are approaching
a sometimes difficult transition in their lives."
"thanks for the great humerous and educational info. you are great. come back to copper harbor, michigan sometime and keep cool and smiling."
"Thank you so much for
making my week. I still have tears from laughing so much as I write this.
I am nearly 52 and was trying desperately to find a funny side to all this.
This site is a breath of fresh air in a heat ridden body. I am passing
it on to friends and workmates who I know will enjoy it as much as I have.
I have survived a winter with all my jumpers never leaving my wardrobe.
I have survived summer hot flushes without ripping my clothes off
in public (my workmates advising me not to as I work in a library). It
looks like I will make it after all. It so comforting to hear people sharing
their thoughts when so many around you think I'm ready for the looney bin
because of the things I say and do." Kym in Australia
giving me a reason to laugh about menopause!!"
"Looks like a fun place to visit!"
"Much Needed! Bless You!"
"I just found your site and I am rollin on the floor...LOL!!!"
" I just came across your site this morning and it was kinda like finding
a long lost relative - a sister, so to speak."
"Your website is so helpful because it
informs us about symptoms our mothers never spoke about, except Hot Flashes.
I can not thank you enough for easing my worries."
"I think sometimes we ALL think of ourselves as being just like Minnie whether we are or not.
That's why it's so easy for me to relate to her and this website."
I do think we all agree upon how much you have touched our lives. Thank you so much for you!!
|"I recently downloaded
the cartoon print of the woman at her desk within a
jail cell. It was great! The print has help me cope and validate my bad days
that are due to my hormonal imbalance. Office mates (male and female)
acknowledge and understand my behavior and now we laugh together and joke
about it. This helps me a great deal at the office."
|I came across
your site today, and got one gigantic laugh.The "micro-wave popcorn" gave
the best laugh I've had in ages. Thanks !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Keep up the good work !!!!!

I did not have memory problems right away.....at least any to worry about....I'd just laugh about it and call it one of my "squirrelly" days. As time went on the memory problem has increased. Losing my car in the parking lot, getting lost in the market (that I have shopped in for years) and can't find my way out, misplacing things, forgetting the things my kids did......you know when they say, mom do you remember when we........ahhh, no I don't remember you guys doing that.....now they don't bother, they just tell me about the incident and laugh, because mom can't remember anymore. This became so bothersome to me that I thought I must have Alzheimer's disease. This is tooo funny......I went to my doctor...she is a young, little thing.....(had to change physician due to my new insurance) I told her what was happening to me and she says yes, you are getting OLDER (the nerve of her) and there is the possibility that you are getting Alzheimer's. (I do have a history of mini strokes) so she ordered a CT scan of my brain. When it was all said and done she said that 2 of my TIAs were in fact small strokes, and it may be contributing to some of my memory problems. She went on to say it was just a guess, but yes I could be in the beginning stages of Alzheimer's....End of that.....So, I had resigned myself to believe that this was what has caused all these problems. Hahahaha!
After finding your site, quite by accident,
I know now that I am suffering from menopause......Lord, Lord, why couldn't
one of my doctors have told me to expect these symptoms.....it could have
saved me years of secretly worrying about what was wrong with my brain.
:~) I've always been able to laugh about all the silly things I do,
but deep within, thought the worse. Now, I know there are millions
of us babyboomers "suffering with the worse" and it is perfectly normal.
So, thanks for the best site ever to come across my screen......It has
the humor that is needed to go through this, but is very informative.
|Edie Davis||I really enjoy your Minnie Pauz character.
She expresses so much
with just her body language! Love your cartoons, you have a wonderful gift!
|Pat Stull, Florida||I love the new cartoon "Work at Home". Although I work at the office, it was almost like looking in the mirror this morning when I read it from my frantic, backed up, desk! Thanks for making my Monday morning a little lighter!!!|
|Marilyn||Such fun to check out the goodies regularly.
I get up early
as you can see and love my daily "fix" of Minnie

|Tom Alyea||Love your cartoons! Keep makin' um laugh.|

|Hilda||Dee, she is wonderful...Looks just like me - rounded and soften out in all the right spots. these are priceless. I'm gong to copy Minnie for my GY Dr. He'll get a heck of a kick out of them. Can't wait for your CARDS to come out!|

my little cat, Zora, and she fell off the file cabinet,
which is right next to my computer! Absolutely great, Dee!
|Marty||I love her pear shape. And guess what: if you are gonna be overweight, being pear shaped is healthier than being apple shaped like me. Aren't you glad Minnie is the shape she is? I wish I were.|
|Keri Webb||Love your Minnie Pauz page and would like to link to it if that is Ok. My page is for my recently published Menopause humor and insight book, "The Hum-again Screech-again Menopause Madness Book". I'm about to add afew links to other interesting sites - yours is a natural.|

|Thanks so much for sharing your great
cartoons! I am a woman family
physician and I am giving a talk on menopause for some of my colleagues (at the annual assembly of the California Academy of Family Physicians). I wondered if I might obtain your permission to show one of your wonderful cartoons in my slide show I am trying to educate my colleages about what it's like to be a woman getting older in our society and I think humor is a great way to do that.

|I am an instructor in an associate degree nursing program. I love your cartoons. I think they would enhance my lectures on menopause.........|
|A Fan||Dear Minnie, I just stumbled across your site and read all your jokes. I nearly peed my pants. Thank you for making my day. My doctor just told me yesterday that I am now in menopause. Yeah. I did indeed need a laugh. Thanks again.|
|JC||Thank you for making my day, these are
the funniest cartoons I've ever
|I just discovered your cartoons today and think you've found a unique niche. I've never seen anyone else who looks at this stage in life with so much humor, and I've read a lot of books and Internet stuff on menopause. Thanks for brightening my day. I'll think of Minnie when I have my next hot flash.|
|Ann||You seem to have become one of my favorite sources of quotes - for whatever occasion. I even shared one of your cartoons with my therapist to illustrate how I was feeling. After a good laugh, we used it as a way to close a difficult session - nothing like a good laugh to relax a person. Keep up the good work! You are an inspiration! Thanks!|
|julie brofman||dear minnie,
after my first 2 nights of hot flashes i was feeling very distracted and in the mood for at least 3 or 4 balling sessions because every little thing was enough to make me want to cry. so i went on the web and saw your listing and must say it made me take light of it despite my extreme fatigue! hopefully a little kava kava will put me under. anyway, i appreciated your levity and wanted to say "keep up the good work"!
|Louise K.||Just want to thank you for bringing to light all the inconveniences and annoyances that we women suffer during and after menopause. I have passed this along to my fellow menopausal friends and believe me, we are still laughing. Keep up the good work.|
|Sue||I do mammography in a town of 30,000--busy to say the least.Your cartoons help my ladies take the compression "gracefully"! Thank you!|
