    Are you really feeling that bad today? I'm so sorry that you are feeling so bad and yes you can feel this bad, I have had days when Ive felt so bad Ive wished to die. Hormones drive so many chemical messages in our body and when the hormones imbalance, so do the other chemical messengers so total havoc ensues. Dont worry hun you are not alone in what you feel and trust me its only hormones. Pm me again if you want to. XXX

      Hi Tina,

      I found this sight a little while ago and I'm grateful I did. I'm 57 and my menopause is absolutely HORRIFIC!!!!! I've had nearly every symptom and can relate to everyone on this sight. I've changed my lifestyle drastically and still no relieve. My menopausal symptoms seems to have worsened. Over the last several years I've gone to healthcare professionals for a total of 13 times. Thank you so much for reminding me it's our depletion of hormones that causes the havoc we're experiencing. I often times wonder if it's something more. I never imagined this transition would be this incredibly difficult. I'm prayerful this will take it's course soon. I pray and wish the best for all.

      Stay Safe.

      Hi Tina, I am 56 and in post-menopause for 4 years and like you I have had every symptom going. I thought they would start going lesser a little, but they've come back again even stronger. I don't take anything from doctors, only natural stuff, self help, I keep praying it will end soon. I'm going to try intermittent fasting tomorrow, I've heard this helps, I'm going to give up drinking tea as well and drinking plenty of water, I'll try anything. I pray also that God will guide me through this nightmare, but I just keep telling myself that it is natural and to just try to ride it. I thank God, I found this site. Stay strong everyone. XXX

      Hi Deboraho,

      So glad you to hear I'm not going through this incredibly difficult transition alone. My symptoms have also worsened and like you, I'm going through this naturally. I'm trusting God for continued strength and will pray for us all. I never imagined this to be this difficult. I too pray this passes real soon.

      Stay Strong

It is definitely HORRENDOUS !!!!Just completed my Annual Exam a couple of weeks ago and blood work came back fine. I encourage you stay strong and prayerfully this will take it's course real soon.

    Yes, it can make you feel this bad. I've had days where I thought I was going mad. Worried, afraid, dark thoughts, finding no joy in anything.

    I pray and pray, starting yoga in April. Taking vitamin D3. Just trying to listen to God, to do what I need to do to feel more like me again. Oh the timer went off on the stove the other day and even though I was expecting it, I jumped what felt like three feet off the ground when it went off!😂😂😂 I did laugh at myself about that. Hang in there and know that you are in a group that includes millions of women.🤗🤗🤗🤗

    Hi there. I had the same operation at 36 now I'm 47. I've had all the symptoms but it is getting easier with time. I have the worse headaches ever and feeling neasua with it. Changes in my bowel and more.. Now I just take each day as it comes. I am longer freighted at how I feel as I know it will pass. Go easy girl and you are not alone on this as we are all going through simular. 😉 CK

    Hi Gypsy,

        I am 60 years old and have been traveling this menopause trek for about a year.   I can't tell you how many of your same symptoms I am experiencing:  Joints on the right side of my body ache with little or no relief, and, regular thumps and bumps just hurt so much more: sleep is disturbed and although I'm tired I can't seem to get restful sleep; I feel tired all the time and so irritable;  My emotions are up and down, but mostly down.  I feel anxious and worried and often have dark thoughts. My dear husband tries so hard to keep me spirits up.  My body no longer responds to my exercise and physical fitness program, and although I eat a very regimented diet my body weight doesn't budge.  I feel like I am being deconstructed piece by piece.

    I will tell you that what makes me feel better is to run.  This has been helpful to me.  I also take vitamin D and try to drink at least 8 eight ounce glasses of water each day. I use Mother's Wort tincture when I feel anxious and upset which has been most of the time for the last three months.

      I tell myself that if there is a beginning to this, there must also be an ending to this state of hormonal chaos. Your experience confirmed my own, and that made me feel that I wasn't all alone. Thank you for sharing it.  Please know that I am thinking of you.   Faithe

      Hi Faithe, thank you for sharing.. It helps to hear each and everyone's own experiences with this dreadful menopause. When I talk to people around me about it they really look at me like I have a 3rd eye or something, either they have all the symptoms and never really put it together with their menopause or they're just some of the lucky ones who glide right through it. Ever since I've been on this site I feel so much better just knowing that these other woman are definitely having the same symptoms as me, and its not just me, these are some pretty intense symptoms that we go through, not fun at all..and I like how you think positive if there's a beginning then there must be an end!!
