Hi Everyone. I'm new to this forum and thank goodness I found it. The last four weeks have been very challenging and reading the posts on this site has given me hope and security. I have just turned 50 and have been on the roller coaster for about 12 years. My main symptoms are depression and horrific anxiety that comes and goes as it pleases. I have tried so many things to correct things but nothing has really helped. Just when I think I have found the answer it hits me again. Thank goodness I haven't taken all the meds doctors have thrown at me because I could start up my own chemist. lol I am doing it really hard again at the moment after 6 pretty good months. My periods have started to space out to about every three months so I just pray my days of ups and downs are close to being over. Being hit with this at anytime of the year is horrific but so much worse over Christmas and New Year. I'm so lucky to have a very supportive husband who has been my rock. It hasnt all been doom and gloom but when it hits you again and again you lose all your confidence and just go into yourself. I have found it hard over the past 10 years to make really strong friendships as I can't trust what this body is going to do. (i know you can all relate to that) I rather keep to myself when I'm like this as I don't have to explain myself. After 10-12 long years I have given up on trying new things and have decided to just tough it out to the end. Please give me the extra strength I need to get through this. I wouldn't wish this on anyone. Love, health and happiness to everyone and I pray that all your troubled days are over soon. My sister went through the same thing and when her periods finished she didn't have any more dips. She is my inspiration!!!! There is hope for us all!!! xxxxxxxxxxxx
