News & Events
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.
More local writers join Sept. 18 Celebrate Authors;
Celebrate Authors 2022 will be held 2-4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 18, at Thomas Branigan Library, 200 E. Picacho Ave., with nearly 50 local and regional artists participating.
A few slots are left in this year’s event for authors who have had books published in 2020, 2021 and/or 2022, said event organizer Alice B. Davenport.
Lori Ann King knew surgery was stressful, but she believed she was successfully managing the emotions and feelings of tension and anxiety that accompany any major surgery.
It wasn’t until her first bout with chronic hives erupted that she realized her body was more overwhelmed than she thought.
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.
What do Tina Fey, JK Rowling, Dolly Parton, Sheryl Sandberg, Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Shonda Rhimes, and Lori Ann King: Author have in common?
They made the list!
Writer, editor and publishing consultant Stephanie Gunning interviews me and we discuss my new book release COME BACK STRONG: BALANCED WELLNESS AFTER SURGICAL MENOPAUSE, which is a holistic look at preparation for and recovery from surgery.
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.
