Started the menopause 4 half years ago. Symptoms began hot flushes, night sweats, muscle aching .... now over last 6 months, I’m worn out with dursturbed sleep, still have burning hot flushes, agitation, and sometimes insomnia .... constant balance problems worst of all however, the horrendous Anxiety/Panic Attack.
Whether at home, work, hate supermarkets hot and noisy ! Burning knots in my tummy turn out of the blue into Anxiety. It’s that bad my balance is effected due to constant poor posture of being constantly tense.
I am taking walks, gardening no gym however. Try to eat sensible ...drink daily plenty of water ... got to stage where I have a glass of wine to ease my anxiety and I certainly do not want them go down that road, but it’s just a temporary relief from the constant battle with myself and menopause anxiety.
My work colleagues are young, they don’t really have an understand, therefore there is no support there, Female GP useless !
I have two interviews this week to get out of my present stressful job, sorry to say working with children for past 12 years I can’t do it anymore, I cannot stand the noise ... it makes me really poorly with anxiety.
I asked my GP for diazepam to help with me with interview, as I know the Anxiety will dampen the interview, so unfair !
Well tonight I took one to help me sleep naughty I know, but my anxiety has been so horrendous last few months, I need a break from it ... just 24 hours st least, I’m so tired with fighting all the symptoms for months, I just need that little break, to gain my strength !
I took a 5 mg, and feel relaxed and not one hot flush ... which I found strange.
Will just take one when my Anxiety is extremely high, I think ... just now and again due to them highly addictive !
When my late mum use to to tell me about her symptoms, I would not always listen. I am so sorry for that, as I know now what she was going through ! Sorry mum xx
Sometimes as well I go to feel nauseated and blury visioned, tearful etc had all the tests done. And Im ok .... I know it’s this dreaded menopsuse curse ! xxxx
Sorry about length of post, just needed to get it off my chest, with people who will most definitely understand xx
