    Hello, I am in peri and exhausted all the time too. If your last period was Sept 2017...you are post meno now. Are you seeing an obgyn? Did you mention the family stuff to that dr? I ask because I have tremendous stress with my child and I had a dr automatically say depression to me last year...BUT only after I told her about my child. I dropped that dr like a bad habit. Now, when I talk to drs I stick to my symptoms so they do not get sidetracked.

    All of this goes along with your lack if hormones. Depression, anxiety, and ten thousand other issues. Some women do opt for an anti depressant if they do not want the risks of HRT. I tried Lexapro for 3 months, not for me...however...that is not say it will not help another woman.

    I would see an obgyn...NOT mention your family stuff and see what they recommend. Best of luck to you!

    I've not been this tired since I was pregnant. Either exausted or insomnia. Seems there's no happy sleep pattern. Cbd oil helps tremendously with most of the symptoms. Hoping there's a light at the end of this tunnel.
