Hello fellow peri-meno suffers. Until rescently I admit its naive, but I didnt know this part of life, condition or what ever label it has even existed.
I have been 'suffering' pretty much every symptom for over a year now. In 5 days it will be 1yr since I lost someone I was very cloes to ; to cancer. My dad, in my dads last 10 days before he past I only then realized my mother had full blown dementia alot more has happend since. One being Peri mno.(I did think alot of my symptoms were due to grief)
Reading the 'symptom' list they sound like life things women experience. Actually living through each symptom is almost like child birth you cant really explain the worst of it to someone who hasnt been there. Why is this part of life not openly discussed, & seems to be 'hidden away in cyber space' like a dirty little secret?
I am I the verge of divorce as I suffer in my home in silence. I have a financially supportive husband but I am left alone to suffer.
I did turn to my GP who was keen to throw some antidepressants my way, but what about the nausea, migraines, aching muscles, weight gain...I did end up in a counsellors office as I need to get back to work. How can you be a productive member of society when you forget simple things who will hire someone who may want to cry at the drop of a hat?
Anyone who may read this thank you for taking the time, because it has helped putting it out there & reading of others 'secret' or private hell.
PS Im use to be a happy,life loving ...mum & wife I feel suddenly & unexpectedly 47 ,old miserable , over weight, hopeless....
