Beginning Peri-menapause

Posted , 5 users are following.

I am 39. Part time college student, full time at home mom of a 17, 7, and 2 year old. I am just getting past an opioid addiction and now I have begun peri-menapause. The extreme PMS is killing me. The world and all in it just screeches to a halt because of my anxiety, depression, and out of control crying. This is worse than withdrawal symptoms because at least I knew those would end. Do people take hormones to help during this time? I am starting law school next year, my husband is starting up his own business right now (in addition to working full time) and we are raising three kids..... I can't live like this. And when it's at its worst, I really do feel that I don't want to live. Any advise is appreciated.
