Hallman on Menopause
I am not technically in menopause yet, but I am more than likely in the middle of perimenopause. It is hard to even know when you are in perimenopause, but like so many women, I have symptoms and issues that have gradually made me feel less like myself. I have always had trouble sleeping through the night. I often suffer from stress and anxiety. As a mom, I feel like low energy is a state of being. During the pandemic, it was refreshing to have more open conversations with women about their daily emotional, mental and physical struggles and realize that many women at all stages of life have similar issues that they deal with regularly.
Hallman on Cannabis
I had no real relationship with cannabis prior to moving to California. Like many women, I did not have great experiences when I was younger and I viewed cannabis as something that was not for me. As an adult I initially only used cannabis as a sleep aid and very occasionally recreationally. When I was introduced to Hello Again, I was pleasantly surprised that I could use cannabis to make me feel not only like myself, but the best version of myself. Cannabis has evolved so much and there are so many high quality products specifically tailored to specific needs. Carrie and Patty also introduced me to a low THC cannabis-based cocktail that is the perfect nightcap or alternative when you want to enjoy a drink without feeling the repercussions the next morning.
Hello Again, Hallman
When Carrie and Patty first introduced me to Hello Again, I was intrigued yet skeptical. I had never heard of anything like it. I really did not think the products would “work” for me, because I did not consider myself in menopause. The first night I took Hello Again Sleep, I woke up feeling refreshed and energized. I had not slept that well in years. I also did not think I “needed” Hello Again Everyday, but I found that I was calmer, more focused and productive when I used it. I did not get as easily annoyed or frustrated.. Hello Again Everyday is a very subtle product, but when I look back on my day, it is always a good day. I have also noticed that Hello Again has helped me with cramps, headaches, minor aches and pains and even hangovers. I now take Hello Again Everyday and Sleep regularly and I feel like my system is truly in balance.
