Don't like being on my own, usually so confident

Posted , 13 users are following.

Hi Ladies, have any of you whilst suffering peri become so anxious that you don't like being on your own. I don't know what has happened as I'm normally such an independent happy person. If hubby is going out I get someone to come and be with me or I arrange to visit a friend. Have any of you lovely ladies had this and overcome it or did it pass. I'm 56 and still peri ????xx

    Hi Deborah, I just about drove my husband crazy..I would get anxious when he left for work and become panicked around noon because I felt weird and didn't know what was happening to me..I would call him and he would come home to be with me, he is self employed so he could do that. This was before I found out I was close to the menopause stage....I was put on xanax .25mg, but I took only half and it worked for me.

      Tonilynn your comment could have been written by me. I have not received a definite diagnosis of peri yet but pretty sure that is what is going on. Reading others comments on here makes me feel a bit better. All tests run (and there were a lot) all came back negative. Thankfully I have an amazing husband as it sounds like you do as well. Hope you are better. 😃
