I want to die.

Posted , 13 users are following.

Today I want to die. I just turned 49 and no let-up of these horrendous symptoms. I have tried being on the pill it just seems to send my anxiety through the roof. I itch like crazy, the Dr put me on Seroquel and Klonopin for my anxiety but they seem to exacerbate the itching. I just can't take it anymore.

    Hi Kathryn, Im sorry that you feel that way today. I know the feeling with the anxiety. Is there a possibility that you could be allergic to one of the meds? Im not a doctor but from a previous experience I know that an allergic reaction could cause itching. Try and think about when it started. Try and take a light walk for anxiety. I hope that you feel better soon!

    Hi Kathryn, no no you don't want to die, it's just or hormones are trying to drive us mad they are a adjusting and trying to balance back out....the menopause is not life time thing it will get better, no matter what you are going through, I been through it and still going through it....it does get better when your periods stop some symptoms will subside with peri menopause 

    stay positive and strong for your self keep busy the itching will go darling ( hugs) xxxx

    I sooo feel like you and have felt just like you. Just take one minute at a time. Anxiety can be Dehabilitating. Try an aveeno bath for your itchy. I actually had medication for my itchy. Hang in there. Xo

    Oh my I have been there and not from that drug - I was itching ever where - I would scratch so bad all over my body and literally draw blood - I found my urine was very yellow and I had to drink so much water until it was very pale and that really helped - then my bladder became so painful - I knew it was the drug so stopped taking it and in one day the pain went away - called my dr and went to see her only to find I was allergic to the drugĀ

    It will pass but in the meantime start drinking camomile tea and peppermint tea lots of exercise and take valium low dose just for two weeks to settle you down and then take half dose for another week then stop altogether you will feel much better

    Keep busy and know that your symptoms will pass just try to take each day as you will have good days

    I hope you are feeling better today. I am so sorry you are dealing with this. It is your hormones I'm sure making feel like giving up. I have those days too!! You are in good company here. I pray, and I just try to not be too hard on myself. Gentle walking, nothing too stressful helps me to feel a little better

    Hang in. See your GP. It's a bit of trial & error with meds . But your GP can try & give you something else that will alleviate the symptoms.

    Cbt can also help. Take one day at a time.

    We will all get through this awful phase .
