    Hi Ellie, Happy Birthday. I can relate. I feel like rubbish all the time too. Fatigue, dizzy, migraines. Hard to be cheerful and patient while feeling like I am dying everyday. Drs not helping, family does not understand. I will be 42 in July.

    Happy Birthday ! For me just putting my feelings in back and white help so feel free to rant. 😃. It is therapeutic. I am struggling more than normal these past couple of days and there is no rhyme or reason to it....but that is the curse of peri / meno. I just am the type of personality that looks for reasons why and have trouble accepting when one can't be pinpointed.

    Wishing to some relief tomorrow and hopefully some joy on your birthday.

    Happy Birthday to you!!! I feel the same about my b-day-- this year I'll be 50 and just want it to go away!! I can relate to the kids and at times I feel like an idiot for being 'on' them so much!! I have thought so many times that 'I need to get a life'!!!

    Happy birthday Ellie

    I know you're just having a rant, and that's good but just think, tomorrow is the start to a new year of Ellie! You get to spend it how you like, and no matter how much you shout at the kids they still have to be nice to you cos it's your birthday. Use it for something good..... Do what you want, celebrate yourself, get drunk, don't get drunk, go out and celebrate you or stay in and take a long bath, skydive, bungy jump, wash your hair, stroke a ferret(if you have one handy), book a holiday, go for a walk, climb a mountain OR just eat cake.... It doesn't matter because tomorrow the fabulous Ellie is 48 🎂😊😀❤️ xx

    I turned 60 today ( February 11th)...and i feel ya.

    Had crampy feeling all day, low energy and now its the 12th and i am wide awake past midnight . Sighhhhh. I am grateful for my blessings, but just wasn't very celebratory this year. Think I'll throw a party in the summer.

    Hope your day was as good as possible!
