Jeanne Andrus is The Menopause Guru; only she used to keep that fact mostly secret in her "private" life.
She would share anything and everything women need to know about Menopause on her Menopause Guru page, but not on her personal page.
She kept her life segmented because she was afraid of the judgment of people who didn't get it.
She was afraid that if she posted on her personal page that people would comment nasty things.
