Coping with full time work and nightmare peri

Posted , 5 users are following.

Anyone else out there struggling with full time work while coping (or not in my case) with Peri/meno?

I have to work full time but the fatigue, brain fog, headaches etc etc make it so hard. I've tried HRT but it just seems to exacerbate my symptoms so gave up, and the fortune I've spent on supplements has been mostly unsuccessful. Just wish it would end, but being pretty regular the light at the end of the tunnel seems a frighteningly long way off!

Apologies for the moan, but it's been a long week - and it's only Tuesday! Lol

    I'm with you there. It's like having an outer body experience. I'm there but I'm soo not there.

    It's really tough.

    Big hugs xx

      Hey sazzie

      That's exactly how it is - an out of body experience! I had no idea it would be like this - as you say it's tough going.

      Hoping the promise of post menopausal zest is not a false one. Guess we'll find out when/if we get there!

      Thanks for your reply - always nice to know you're not alone.

      Big hugs back xx

      Yes!  Sazzie's description is exactly what I feel.  Haven't tried HRT yet but may have to as I'm having a lot of trouble with anxiety and sadness.  Have tried some supplements but can't tell a difference.

      Big hugs to both of you! ??

    I can't begin to imagine what working full time would be like with these crazy symptoms!Thankfully I am still at home with my kids but even that is a full time job and can be challenging with these symptoms. I feel for you though.

    I can relate. I'm turning 51 and haven't had a period in 7 months. I work full time but I rarely sleep for more than a few hours a night. Then at work I'm exhausted, forgetful and irritable. I'm in no rush to become a senior citizen but sometimes I long for retirement.
