    Why We Can't Sleep Kindle Ø Why We Kindle - can't free, sleep epub, Why We epub, Why We Can't Sleep PDFI feel like I’m a bit young to be reading about women having midlife crises but I took a chance on it primarily because I trusted my friend who recommended it who happens to be several years younger than me I found this book completely fascinating and far too relatable In separate chapters Calhoun examines many of these issues individually like finding work caregiving job instability money panic choosing a single life or a childless life or not choosing to be single and childless yet finding that's your reality and then divorce perimenopause the comparison trap—if you're getting the picture you can see it's not easy stuff It was a lot of information and a lot of it was pretty depressing but it was also engrossing and unexpectedly reassuring I laughed the laugh of recognition when Calhoun writes Oddly knowing that I have every reason in the world to be freaking out has made me much relaxed
