    I'm useless during the day because I cant sleep at night, I'm lucky to get 3-4 hours.. I get my burst of energy around .midnight when my anxiety seems to be at its peak. So I clean to take my mind off the anxiety and next thing I know its 6 a.m. and I'm finally tired. Now it's a horrible habit i can't break. i absolutely hate life right now..

      Anxiety no matter what it propels me to do is never positive even if I'm being productive. I was diagnosed in my early 20s with panic and anxiety disorder and have been on meds ever since. I rarely leave the house. Since meno hit it's even worse. It would be nice to be positive without feeling like I'm dying while cleaning... my only other choice is to give into the attacks and throwing up so much I end up in the hospital badly dehydrated..

      attacks are no jokes. i agree. they took over the last year and half of my life. im now on cbd oil twice a day 0.5ml and i swear this with the combo of meds has been the only thong to help me. i feel for you.

      i dont get up off the couch because i have no ambition or energy. i keep trying tho. my husband is getting very aggravated we go no where or he goes alone. i dont like to leave the house either. are u married? my husband will probably divorce me one day because he doesnt understand. he thinks i can snap my fingers and snap outta it. i sooo wish he was rite. i figure when that happens ill just get cats lol 😃

      That's a hard question to answer, legally yes I'm married, my hubby is in a nursing home due to a hit and run motorcycle accident 16 yrs ago, we were in the process of divorce when it happened, his family didn't want anything to do with being responsible for him so I took the responsibility, he didnt ask to be left for dead on the side of the road (hit and run) and I couldnt in just let him lay there to rot. Hes 100% total care, massive brain damage from lack of oxygen after having back to back cardiac arrests, he cant move, communicate, eat or use a bathroom. He wears diapers and is fed with a feeding tube. I oversee his care and make his medical decisions, and all this anxiety and meno crap makes it harder than hell to go check on him or make monthly care plan meetings with his doctors... with that being said I've since moved on, I have a boyfriend (hate that word at my age lol) going on 13 yrs now. He gets very frustrated bc I have zero interest in activities, I dont even grocery shop, I use a delivery service. We used to go on spur of the moment trips, have the grandkids over all the time, played darts, go to the casino, etc.. now I'm lucky to make it to the mailbox. I've told him if I have to suffer so does he lol, but he's free to leave anytime, I just don't care enough to try any more. Like I said my house gets cleaned and laundry done bc if I dont move and try to refocus during an anxiety attack then I'll end up in the hosp bc the nausea will take over and I'll get dehydrated. My latest symptom started as what i thought was oral thrush, I was on 3 different meds and went on a yeast diet to no avail, been to specialists to be told its acid reflux even though I never have heartburn. I've come to the conclusion its burning mouth.. it feels raw and burns, thick saliva and a rotten taste.. I've dropped 20 lbs bc food tastes terrible. I'm gonna start some B12 and see if that helps, in the meantime I changed toothpaste and using a dry mouth mouthwash and alternate it with a baking soda rinse. I lost my mom last May and have been trying to care for my dad also, all of this crap makes life very difficult to manage, to say I hate it is an understatement...

      that is exactly me I also have fibromyalgia and ankley spondylitis so my back constantly hurts and I just can’t get in the mood I stay up late watching series and then that ruins my sleeping pattern I am on menopause patches which seem to help a little bit and have recently started a very low dose antidepressants ones that do not make you gain weight so I totally understand where you’re coming from and it’s really hard to make your husband understand what you’re going through sometimes you just don’t wanna be touched happy to talk to you any time sending you lots of love stay strong and let’s hope our menopause doesn’t last too long

      My husband is very supportive but, they do think you can snap your fingers and snap outta it. They seem to think you can control your thoughts and body when your hormones are outta whack! Hormones are evil. My 3rd med now to try is helping and ginseng ......cats are cool get cats regardless!!! Hope you feel better. For the last year....I go to sleep the earliest and due to anxiety barely leave the house. Hope it gets better for all of us!!!

      if you can’t put up with the bleeding there is a procedure called Iblation ask your GP for a referral to see a gynaecologist they burn the ilinning of your uterus and honestly it is the best thing you hardly have a period and when you do it’s very very light I am married and it so hard but lucky for me he works away LOL wishing you all the best I definitely understand what you’re going through I feel exactly the same take care
