I am still struggling with the depression and emotional numbness of perimenopause. I just don't want to be around other people. I feel like crawling under a rock and coming out when it is all over.
I can start to feel better, normal even, and then I just come crashing down, only to start the whole cycle over again. Each time, I hope that it is the last time. This has been going on for ten months, and it is so difficult to bear, even though I recognize that I must accept my situation, do the best that I can, and wait for it to be over.
It's just so hard to feel like an emotional zombie. I don't ever make plans right now, as I never know how I am going to feel from moment to moment. I can feel normal, then euphoric, then filled with dread, then deeply depressed, sometimes in the span of hours.
I know that it is time that will fix this, but it is so difficult to stay patient, continue on, and keep hope going.
I would love to hear from other women on the forum who are going through a similar experience.
