Fearing Life

Posted , 6 users are following.

From what i gather fast heart rate is part of menopause, do we like it no. It scares me my levels were at zero i have a long way to go. I do think my hormone level trying to come up is kinda shocking my body, i wish i knew it was so low i would have started sooner. Now i have to feel the effects of my body trying to consume my hrt. Trying to stop smokeing on top of this is even more stressful, but i can only do 1 day at a time. Gl all here if need to talk.

    Hi Helen,

    Way to go on deciding to quit smoking!!

    I totally understand the title of your post... fearing life here too. I'm on very low dose of hrt, and the first week was rough. Then I had a really good run of about 90 days. I feel a little low the past week or so, and will just have to see where that leads me I guess. Trying to take it as it comes... I should know by now there's no predicting it.

    Best of luck with everything! Here if you need a chat.

      Tyvm Sara , i think the worse part are the constant heart palpatations and anxiety. Every one tells me to work on getting my hormone levels up and stop stressing over smokeing try to cut back a little at a time, but we all know worry is a big part of menopause.Ty again
