i’m 49 and haven’t had a period in at l ast 6 months. i first realized i was peri in the fall of 2016 when my symptoms really escalated. i had probably been having light symptoms before that which weren’t bothering me much.
in fall 16 my symptoms were severe and that lasted about 6 months. things have been a bit more even keeled until recently. i’ve got hot flashes and sever anxiety right now and the anxiety is really affecting my
life - especially at work. i have panic attacks regularly at work and it’s beginning to make being here just so very very stressful.
i don’t know what to do. should i tell my supervisor i’m struggling ( i hate that idea becuase i am used to being so competent and capable!) or do i just soldier on?? there are soecific parts of my job that i am finding unbearably overwhelming and i wonder if it would be better for me if i told someone?
have any of you dealt with meno anxiety and if so, how have you handled it? should i go ask my doc for some meds? this is all so foreign to me 😕
thanks in advance
