The hidden sleep epidemic that’s ruining women’s lives

When Lori Ann King had a total hysterectomy in 2015, she was surprised to find that the surgery triggered menopause, which in turn brought insomnia.

“It would take me an hour to get to sleep and then I’d be waking up at 1 a.m., 2 a.m. and so on,” the 46-year-old, who suffered from ovarian fibroids and endometriosis, tells The Post. “The fatigue was overwhelming.”

Nothing Hold Me Back Now!

Her doctor said it was menopause, but Lori Ann King knew her fatigue was due to something more–and she didn’t give up until she identified the culprit and the easy fixes that restored her vitality.

An interview with Lori Ann King

I began blogging in 2014 but it was in 2016 when I whispered my heart’s desire to be a best-selling author.

I always thought my first book would be about life lessons from the bike or cycling shorts (stories) but that book remains in incubation while others rise to the forefront based on the seasons of my life.

The Intensely Positive Podcast with Kelvin Ringold

What if … you went to sleep one night and when you woke up in the morning, your whole life had changed? That’s happened to me when I went into surgery expecting one result… but reality demanded another. Approximately 600,000 women a year are thrust into surgically induced menopause, and it wreaks havoc in their lives — and that of their families.

Listen to Kelvin’s riveting interview with me as I detail my story, and its effects on my life, and how I eventually took responsibility and control of my life, to Come Back Strong, to a happy fulfilling life, and how I continue to stay strong.

A conversation for women, and the men who love them.
