Just realizing I'm on a hormonal tailspin

Posted , 4 users are following.

I just turned 52. I've always struggled with PMS, bad temper,

irrational, irritable, just miserable to be around. I would just go

to bed because I couldn't stand myself. I also have a 6 year old,

GOD Bless him he sees mommy in these terrible stages since birth.

Lately I feel lifeless, lack any drive, my mind feels crazy or a

sense of dread, trapped in my body and wondering wear thereal

Kim is. I decided to look up menopause, since I haven't had a

period in about 6 months. From reading other stories don't

feel so crazy, but I am going to see what my doctor can give me.

Being female right now sucks, I don't know this woman I see in the

mirror, the words I say can be so hurtful. Thanks to all who have

    Take care. It is not easy with the young ones around. I am 47 and have a 7 year old. I do feel sorry for her at times. I feel vad and guilty for not being an energetic & happy mummy! sad

      I do take vitamin B abs B complex mixture and also take another one which has a combination of St John's wort and black cohosh. They seem to have helped with my energy levels a bit. But not great change. Perhaps need to carry on longer to get the full effect.
