I’m sure I’m not the only one who gets sentimental during the holidays. As my family gathers in a home that looks better than usual, preparing gifts and eating more-than-usually festive food, I can’t help but feel fortunate.
Part of what I’m grateful for is the response to MiddlesexMD, which we launched at the beginning of the year. I’ve had a few years of experience focusing on mid-life women in my medical practice, including the satisfaction of hearing from women who’ve gotten their sex lives back. Through MiddlesexMD I’ve been able to have a broader conversation with more women and more health care practitioners.
There have been very specific comments from people—both women and their partners—who’ve found success with information or products they’ve found on our site. Health care practitioners I’ve met at conferences have endorsed what we’re doing with some variation of “This is exactly what I’ve been looking for to help my patients!”
In the midst of this holiday season, then, I’d like to say thank you—to the readers of this blog, our correspondents and customers, my health care colleagues, and the MiddlesexMD team. I wish for all of you a very happy holiday season—full of joy and leisure and seasoned with romance!
