Emotional symptoms of peri

Posted , 10 users are following.

hello ladies... I have been a mess for about a year now with all kinds of peri symptoms. but lately I feel so guilty about things that I normally would not, also over analyze everything and blame myself for almost everything I am going through. I feel I'm not a good wife, not good mother to my children since I have been hit by peri hell, all the anxiety, headaches and so on. I cry about smallest things, I just feel so helpless. I have a supportive spouse and children who are too young to know what I'm going thru yet very good towards me despite my anger bursts. Is this part of peri ??? anyone else feel this way?

      I'm 39, two young kids, 7 and 4. omg I also felt anxious when I had to take them to dentist about a month ago for next year school requirements. I spent most of my weekend with anxiety and headaches. I too hold it in, try not to show my symptoms in front of my kids but it gets overwhelming and I just burst out crying in the bathroom.

    Are we twins?! You basically described the way I've felt for at least a year. I'm 2 years post. Peri was absolute hell for 7 years. Since finding this forum and you wonderful woman here, I better understand what's happening. I still feel crappy most days, but better. The guilt is overwhelming sometimes. I'm not the person I used to be. You're not alone. My son is graduating this year. He thinks I blame everything on menopause. Praying that this gets better some day. Hugs!

      peri can definitely create a havoc in one's life and change them. it's hard to explain to people who are not living through this hell on a daily basis. hugs to you dear, let's hope and pray we see the light at the end of this tunnel SOON.

    I feel many of these same emotions. First off I may be much older as I have much older children (at 23 and 21) I am 56, unfortunately spotted a few months back after not having a period for months on end.

    I will say the anxiety is the worst of the symptoms (and I had the majority of symptoms of peri)

    I also think everyone is against me, take everything personally, worry about everything.

    I always feel like something bad is going to happen, so I spend the day just waiting for it.

    I will say that I am seeing a therapist, it does help when I am talking to her. I also read (or listened to) a couple of good books. Because some of these things I am experiencing I have always had, but have been heightened by perimenopause. Such as the worry and taking everything so personal.

    My GYN, when I went for my yearly, suggested HRT or an antideppressant. I have decided against both. My primary did prescibe the antidepressant but as of now I haven't begun either.

    So, yes I believe these symptoms are hormonal. Oh, and many days I wake up and want to cry, as soon as I open my eyes. I will say, some days are worse than others. Once in awhile, (if this helps at all) , I will have a day that actually isn't horrible. And, I have been on this forum on some of my worst days, with all the nice woman being kind and giving encouragement.
