I just saw my doctor today to see if anything can be done about my symptoms (bloating, cramping, heavy bleeding, depression, anger, frustration, crying, hopelessness...the list goes on). Rather than taking pills, which I've tried and they haven't worked, I told her that I am just going to "ride out the rest of the symptoms". She basically told me that I need to change my attitude and embrace what is happening, and that my thinking will only worsen my symptoms.
I left her office feeling completely misunderstood, hurt, and angered by her inability to grasp the scope of what I have been dealing with for two years!!
I am a very strong and positive person, who is able to handle stress (believe me), but perimenopause has just about broken me.
Can anyone relate?
