    I hear ya im right where ur atsad( Been in perimenopause eight years im now 48. Like you im screaming inside when will it end!!!! Some days it seems to much to bear.

    I just read an online article in the daily mail about a woman who quit work nearly got divorced and thought she was bipolar. Turns out it was menopause! !!

    She also talked about the palpitations and shortness of breath which I get a lot and thought I was dying.

    Hope ur day gets better

      Hi, hope you're doing ok. I've had Dr's wanting to put me on antidepressants but I've been there done that, no benefit. My marriage is a bit strained at the moment because of all this but I do have a great hubby...or is it tolerance, he doesn't want to upset this menopausal beast LoL I often rely on my warped humour to get me through. Take Care

    Hi, Bobbins:  I was born with anxiety problems and as I got older it seemed to get a little better.  I had to have an emergency hysterectomy in 2001, and my doctor immediately placed a Vivelle Dot on my arm.  I felt great for many years, until my insurance co. told me they would no longer help pay for them.  They are very expensive here in America, somewhere around 200.00 a month.  She put me on Esterdoil, and things have gotten worse ever since.  Yesterday, I got off of every estrogen, and I feel like you today...swollen and sore breast area, anxiety, fuzzy brain...I really don't know what to do....You ask if it will ever end..I'm 67 yrs. old, and I'm still struggling with hormones...Please get on the right meds while you are young enough to enjoy life.....Good luck!!

      Hi, that's no good you're not able to get your medication, is there no medical compensation in America? I'm in Oz, we have government paid bulk billing for some medical prescriptions etc, do hope you're ok & that you can get the medication you need. All the best, take care.

      Not all AD's are addictive ... There are three types that are licenced for prescription for menopaus for those that are unable to take HRT. I am on 50 mg Sertraline and it really has helped with my anxiety I would have been lost without it. Prescribed for 2 years to get me through a really bad anxiety which will be up in October and then take it from there xx

    Hi Bobbins059

    We are all behind you with these horrible feelings that most of us endure during Peri.. I have been in Peri for quite some time and i will be 60 in October!  I cannot sleep, my stomach is constantly playing me up!  My memory is dreadful amongst other things.. my concentration is bad..cry

    I am terrified that I am going to die!  It's also very costly as I cannot go out without protection on because of the un predictable bleeding or lack of bladder control.. sad  I never know what's going to happen next!!!

    Keep fighting it can only get better.. Can't it???

    I feel exactly the same bobbins, I've woke up & anxiety is already flowing through me along with all the negative thinking & fear that I'm going to be left like this. Also how really bad headache this morning.

    We'll need to tell ourselves this is temporary & will be over soon. It's good to be able to vent our frustrations on here though knowing other ladies understand.

    Hope you've managed to get a sleep & the symptoms you described sound like the hormones are causing chemicals such as adrenaline to rush through you... Don't worry about it.. I've had all the symptoms you describe.

    Take care x

      Hi cazjaz, I feel very low mood today, overwhelmed, can't seem to shake feelings of despair off, keep crying.  I know this will lift, but I fear I'm going to be left with this dizziness and lose my job, mind etc....

      Look forward to the good old days when I woke up feeling normal and got on with the day ahead.  I don't even recognise myself anymore.

      Sorry for being so negative, hope it hasen't affected how your feeling.

      Have a nice weekend xx

      has your doctor prescribed you anything to help you thru this period Hun ? I would also say anything you can do to alter the same old pattern in your life do it. Even like changing your bedroom round change rooms do something that will change the same momentum of every morning ? That small change can help your mind start off the day differently and think there is light at the end of the tunnel xxx big hugs you will get there

      Go back and have a chat with your doctor there is so much they can offer you I take paroxetine 10mg small dose it's great for anxiety as well but is addictive but i have been on it a very long time and my theory is if it helps me live a sort of normal life I don't mind d taking it forever lol. With a new baby comeing it might kick you into the right direction you need Hun just remember it's noal and you will get better xxx

      Thank you for giving us all hope cazjaz! A few weeks ago I thought the dire thing had ended after 6 or 7 years of it - then all the symptoms came back. Now they're fading out again. It's hell on earth but I'm really heartened to hear that you've been there and back again and that things will get better. Thanks for your post!
