I have had a perfectly awful past year....the worst ever in my life. i have been in perimenopause for about 4-6 years now (hard to know for sure), I have been on here begging for advice on what i can do to ease my suffering and i was struck with a major realization today! So ive been SO sick to where i cant eat, so fatigued to where i cant function, so depressed and anxious all i want to do is cry, not to mention all of the other 20 symptoms i have, but this morning i woke up feeling "my old normal". I was able to eat with no knots in my stomach or gagging, i didnt feel depressed in fact i feel very happy at the moment, i went for a long drive in my car with NO anxiety.....i have wondered this whole year if im just plain mental and maybe ive slipped into the pit of of no return, i wondered if i did need antidepressants or vitamins to make this all go away even tho ive tried them in the past but they didnt help. But the truth of the matter is ive not taken any special vitamin, no hormones, no cbd oil, no antidepressants, no probiotics.....in fact i havent changed a thing. The realization i had is this IS all hormone related and nothing we do or we take will make things "disappear", this is simply how our bodies react to this terrible time in our lives. The best thing we can do is try to nurture our bodies and minds as we muddle through this terrible battle (i dont think of it as a journey this is plain HELL) we need to realize that we arent crazy and there is no special "pill" that will fix us. Im sure i will have way more bad days ahead if me until im completely through with perimenopause and once menopause is here maybe i will have more good than bad days, but at least i know now that i am NOT broken! Having a day or two here and there of feeling "my old normal" tells me that im still in this body somewhere and once the hormones settle i will find her again and i will be victorious and wiser for it! I hope this helps some of you ladies know that you arent weak no matter how bad you feel and you certainly arent broken, this is just our bodies way of fighting against the inevitable change we are going through! Bless all of you in your battles!
