    I do feel that way at times too. I think we start to feel like if this s it, my life of anxiety and feeling horrible all the time then whats the point right? I try to keep the faith that God has plans for me. For all of us. Maybe the best has yet to come?

    Hi babe, I thought this way for a while and beat myself up about it. Then my 23 year old autistic son made me see sense by reminding me that I have been changing all through my life as each new phase approached, and I got used to it. I realised he had a good point. I got used to having hormones as a teenager and periods, I got used to being more adult as I entered the workforce, I adapted to the changes that motherhood brought and I'm learning to cope with all this nuttiness now. I've accepted that I wont be the same again, but I can still get on a nd enjoy life and face each challenge as it comes. It all tikes time hun, but we'll get there x

    I understand!!! I have thought this to. I think doing as much of the stuff you love to do that brings you peace us impt.

    Ex: it's about 10 am here in nyc. I walked the dog, chanted, did some eft, washed the dishes, took 1 passionflower and 1 Ashwadgahra and now feel less anxious. One day at a time

    Hi Maria, those feelings of despair will go away and you won't think this way. So resta assured that is a light at the end of this nightmare tunnel, where life will be back to normal. It doesn't feel that way now but it will with time. Hang in there, you're doing great. Hugs, xx

    Hi Maria, I've felt like that way many times since Peri hit. I do know things will get better, then worse, then better again. I never in a million years would have guessed that most women will have to face this unsettling time of life. I've been fighting the symptoms of peri for about 7 years now, and I'm still scratching my head and wondering why I never heard anything about Peri or how it can wreck your life before! Where is the outcry? Why aren't medical professionals doing more to educate, prepare, and help women and their families? I know personally what this can do to all relationships. But all we can do is be proactive with our health , educate ourselves and insist our doctors take us seriously. Hang in there, Maria....we'll get through this, and maybe be able to help others when their turn comes.

      I love your reply. Couldn't agree more as to why we are not educated about this time of life.

      I have been going through peri nine years and I've struggled with every symptom there is to have.

      Currently suffering severe nausea and acid reflux. Doctor gave me lansaprzole an acid inhibitor and I think it's making me feel worse. It's just awful.

      Can't eat can't think straight at the moment.

      Went six months no period. Then spotted for a week two months ago. Now nothing again.

      Not had hrt Was on an antidepressants for a year but came off it six months ago. Thought it was making my acid worse but not sure it was that now.

      So nice to hear positive stuff even when we don't feel very positive.

      Not to mention the anxiety and health anxiety.

      praying for better days for all of us xx

      I have been going thru peri for a good 8-9 yrs and hoping menopause happens soon. I have been going thru alot with it lately. It's about making new tools all the time! The 21 day Deepak/Oprah that started yesterday is spot on. I have to bring more snacks with me to the clinic where I counsel- healthy stuff- nuts, berries. What a huge process. And working out saves my butt

      Hi Michelle, like you, I've had a variety of peri symptoms. I had a short brush of misery with acid reflux, and omg, I feel so sorry for you! I have had trouble with restless legs and insomnia and when acid reflux was thrown in the mix, I thought, well, this is it...this is how I'm gonna die! lol But, it's good to talk to others that are experiencing this. And let's face it. Unless someone has lived through it, there's just no way they could understand it, could they? You've heard the expression, "misery loves company?" well, I say, "misery loves comfort." which is what I get, and try to give on this forum. smile
