    I just had some bowel issues 2x today already. So not sure if its stomach flu or if I ate something bad or its menopause. All I can say is this sucks. Literally... I have no idea. Just know that I feel more sick these days then well. These are days I wish I was a man. Haha...Hope you feel better soon Monique.

    Hey, it's totally normal to feel the way you do. When your anxiety is bad, your immune system is working over time and your body is in constant fight or flight mode. So, when the anxiety calms down, your body needs time to calm down, too and readjust

    Yes Monique, anxiety is exhausting. It makes me weak during afterwards. I get the strangest sensations in my body, it's one symptom after another. What a rollercoaster ride this meno is! Hold on! Love and hugs x

    Your not going kookoo, I feel very worn down and flu like after a bad anxiety day or days.

    I force myself outside for a walk and fresh air.

    And yes I feel all the aches and pains 😁

    I've had the day from hell with anxiety since 5am. God, I've never felt so rotten in all my life. I've cried on and off (mostly on!) since early morning and have just started to feel very shivery. So I thought I'd log on to the forum and what do I find...........that I'm not alone! Thank you girls......yet again you're restored my faith in human nature! Where I would have been without my wonderful hubby today I dread to think. I'm hoping for a better day tomorrow.
