I'm 48 years old, and I have had symptoms creep up on me that I suspect were perimenopausal for the last few years. Nothing too terrible...just a general feeling of blah. I was feeling a bit relieved thinking "if this is the worst of it, I can do this." Needless to say, that must have just been the opening act to The Big Show. I woke up one morning about 6 weeks ago to the most horrible nausea, panic attacks and crying jags that last until noon. WTH? Almost overnight, I have changed into a sobbing, weepy mess. I can barely function until noon most days which makes the sadness worse so it is a viscous cycle. I'm on Paxil (3 days in) which has helped my moodiness immensely, but makes the nausea 10x worse. Again, a viscous cycle. Anywho, I hope this bit of peri leaves as quickly as it came.
