    Oh my goodness, yes! It is like all the responsbility in the world in funneled to one point and it seems every decision is perilous. Distraction seems to help and deep breathing. I do notice that the more I exercise, the less the worries. Also, good friends around whom I feel safe help as well. Good luck!

      hi Suzanne

      your not alone hun, it sort of grips you .. its a strange one, i lost all confidence for a little period of time when this hit me, even the thought of going out alone i expected the worst to happen..

      Vit B6 took all my anxiety away ... 150mg daily... went as quick as it came and my energy increased... we lack that B6 Suzanne in Peri..

      ' i sound like a parrot' i say this to everyone 😃

      I have seen you comment many times on b6 & 12 so I went to boots a couple of weeks ago  & purchased some they were one a day 10mg! I'm now totally confused as you mention 150mg.

      You seem to have done a lot of research on thesis vitamins & have s lot of knowledge! Mid you think the boots ones are a waste of time. 

      I would really appreciate any help you could give me 

      Thanks mrs d xx

      Thank you so much for your help.

      heres the info too if you wanted that also Jayxx

      Everyone needs B-vitamins for good health. Without them we can suffer from a variety of serious ailments. For a woman going through perimenopause, B-vitamins can be essential for effectively managing symptoms.   

      Adrenal fatigue, for example, is a common secondary condition for many women going through perimenopause. B-vitamins support healthy adrenal function, along with calming and maintaining a healthy nervous system.

      Many women also suffer with mood swings during perimenopause.

      Both B12 and B6 vitamins aid in the production of neurotransmitters such as serotonin, a key brain chemical needed to stabilize moods and promote feelings of wellness and contentment.

      For women who suffer with brain fog, and memory issues in perimenopause, low levels of Vit B6 could be part of the problem.

      Depression, confusion, and an inability to concentrate are all associated with B6 deficiency. Vertigo, dizziness, and heart palpitations are also common complaints from women going through perimenopause.

      All of these symptoms have been associated with (among other things) a B12 deficiency. Jarrows B12 methyl 5000mcg cherry flavour is excellent 

      ***Vitamin B6 can also help with stubborn weight gain in perimenopause. It is key in the breakdown and utilization of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins in our diet, and is necessary for a healthy metabolism - both which can help manage weight.

      Supplementing with ***vitamin B6 is also a good option during menopause and can provide more rapid relief than diet alone.

      To avoid an imbalance that can result when one vitamin becomes deficient, use a supplement that contains a full complement of all members of the B-complex family. Doses of 50 to 100 milligrams of B complex per day help promote general health and wellness.

      ****However, during the stress of menopause,

      your requirements for B6 may increase to as much as 300 milligrams per day..  supplements of B6 100mg - 300mg depending on severity of symptoms.

    I was saying this not 10 minutes ago to my husband who informs me that I haven't been "right" for about 10 months! I honestly do think I'm going mad and I hate it! I'm not an anxious or depressed person usually but this whole peri has got me twisted in all kind of knots and I'm failing to see when it will end!

    i have got an appointment with my doctor again the first week of September but my fsh test came back normal so I don't know where to go next! I'm thinking that I may have to try a very small dose of something for anxiety as I do know I worry and fret so much, although I'm only worrying because the symptoms make me worry!

    i can't believe that the menopause does this to us, it's so awful and it's horrible because none of my friends are in this phase yet so have no idea what I am going through which is why this board has been so great for me, thank you all ladies, especially jay because I think I would have been carted off a long while ago if it wasn't for you guys.

    sorry to have rambled on your post, I have a habit of doing it, but I am feeling very similar to you and just wanted to tell you that you're not alone and if you want to talk more about it, I can be a very good listener when I'm not rambling like I am now, lol!

    anyway, I'm pretty sure we're not going mad and if we are we can go mad together, lol! Hope u feel better soon.

    love K.x
