I have been on this forum too many times to count complaining and questioning the many symptoms of peri menopause I have had. So happy this forum was here because many were so helpful, and I knew I wasnt alone.
One of the worst was the anxiety and the feeling of always wanting to cry.
There were many days I went through the day in a fog just wanting the day to be over.
I had a very, very hard time. Doctor either suggested I start hrt or antidepressants.
I started neither. I did fill the antidepressant prescription because I was getting very desperate to feel better, but I never took it.
I am 56, my last spotting was the beginning of February, so I am still not officially in menopause.
Since I haven't visited the forum lately, I thought it was only appropriate I write.
I do not want to jinx myself, but as of late, maybe a month, the anxiety seems to have lifted .
(this was by far my worst symptom) It made me not want to leave the house, and if I had to go out I just got through what I had to do and couldn't get home fast enough.
The crying is somewhat still around. I wake up with the feeling of wanting to cry, nothing to look forward to. But I also attribute this to having other personal problems.
Anyway, if this helps, some of my horrible symptoms have passed.....FOR NOW anyway.
This was a question I have asked others, was there a light at the end of the tunnel?
And I think, if I didn't have other personal stuff going on, that I could say I am in a much better place.
