When she gets up in the morning, 55-year-old Barbara knows exactly what she's going to wear—the khaki shirt, green pants, tan hat and steel-toed boots of a park ranger. "As unsexy as this uniform is—blah and frumpy—that's kind of how I feel about myself," she says. "Blah, frumpy and definitely unsexy."
Barbara says it's not only the uniform that keeps her from feeling sexy. "Menopause damaged the physical vision I have of myself. I don't look the same. I don't feel the same," Barbara says. "Maybe I've given up a little bit. Maybe that's how I lost my sexy."
