    I feel you. Whole-heartedly. It's miserable sometimes. Long runs of just feeling bad. I think it's the worst part of ALL of this. I've dealt with depression throughout my life, it's always been a bit of a battle, just chemical with me, runs in my family, and, I have to say, this depression that has come with these Perimenopausal symptoms, has been unlike anything I've ever experienced before. I used to think my dark days were dark, but this is a whole other level. I'm sorry you're not feeling good overall these days. I hope this will change for you. Do see a doctor and maybe even a BHRT specialist at some point, at least get all the facts. I'm still researching it all, myself. I have decided to ramp up on the exercise and pick back up with taking Vitamins. If you're able to get some good, solid rest that should help make everything else doable. I wish you the best. 

    Take good care.

    Hi tonilynn

    I understand where you're coming from, I have to work 2 jobs to keep the roof over mine and my sons head and some days it's just sooooo hard.

    Some days I don't have the energy to do my main job let alone going to my second.

    I'm slowly changing my diet, I'm cutting down on Caffeine and having smoothies once a day in the hope it will give me energy 😞.

    Like people have said to me take time out, rest and be gentle on yourself and I think it's the only thing any of us can do.

    I'm hoping to try and and get referral to a menopause specialist when I see my Dr tomorrow but It could be a fight 😠😠

    Moonleaf is right, see your doctor and look into different things that may help.

    I hope you have a good day today xx

      OMG that was easy.

      Been to the Dr this morning and saw a sensible 1. She's explained more to me in 2 minutes than any of the others have put together.

      She is referring me to a menopause specialist nurse at my local hospital!!! Go me!! 😂😂😂😂😂

      I guess if we don't ask and push forward we won't get the help we need.

      I'm hoping she will answer questions and help with putting me on the right path on what will help. My Dr at the moment is telling me I will need to take hrt until I'm 50 (another 9 yrs).

      I just want to feel normal 😞

    I have been feeling bad for a very long time along with severe, severe hot flashes.  Found out I am having a lot of bone loss so it made sense to start hormones.  The first month on them was miserable, depressed, backaches, stuffiness, the list goes on.  I have to admit, this week has been amazing.  My depressing is lifting.  I feel good...Real good.  Like I want to bottle it...LOL.  I was so against taking these hormones, but if it is the reason I feel this good, I will consider it a miracle.  Good luck to you.

      Thank you for your post. It is so helpful to hear how the process is going for you. I hear that at first, it's miserable with hormone replacement, but then something changes and it gets really good. I'm so glad you're experience is a positive one. Please, keep sharing. Can you tell us what type of hormones you are taking? And, do you take any vitamins/other supplements? Are you using bioidentical hormones, or synthetic (no judgement, just interest!). Good luck to you for continued success along your path. Thanks, again, for the post.

      Hi Moonleaf...You are very welcome...I am very happy to share.  I starting following this board because of how awful I was feeling on the hormones and wanted to hear about other women were feeling while taking it.  I was ready to stop.  I am taking prempro.  My hot flashes were every 20 minutes and they were making me so physically ill from my belly up.  almost feeling like passing out...it was exhausing.  So because I didnt want hormones i opted for the anitdepressant with worked for 3 weeks.  then my dr informed me about major bone loss.  so i just decided i needed the estrogen.  so here i am.  I hope you find something to work for you.  Keep me posted smile
