Menopausal Panic Attacks!

Posted , 15 users are following.

Hello Gang! What are we taking these days for panic and anxiety that isn't HRT?

How are you coping with social events, holidays, parties, weddings, work? Where can I find that strong willed independent feminist woman I once was. I miss her. LOVE to you all. ❤️

      hi i dont know why they tell women menopause lasts a certain amount of time.a lot of people i know still suffer long after their periods are finished..its very misleading isnt it..i was talking to a lady who said her mum still had terrible hot flushs in her 80s..more should be done to help women and people should be educated about menopause like they are periods sex and pregnancy ..its an incredible change to the body not always a positive one for most ♥️

    It sucks!!! I never had any issues with anxiety until perimenopause started. I had to go on prescription anti anxiety medication for relief

    im ten years post meno at 52..periods just stopped at 42..no symptoms.last couple of years ive dealt with horrific panic attacks that stemmed from health anxiety along with chronic insomnia..im slowly recovering and i push myself to go out on my own even though i was dreadfully scared..and it will get better..if you surrender to anxiety and accept it for what it is just anxiety you can get better ..i went through a period of not going out etc because it was that bad until i just thought i dont want to live the rest of my life like this anymore so ..i want to be happy again.it does take time..hormones cannot kill us even though it can feel like they are..thats what i keep in mind neither can anxiety or panic..i cant take hrt as it made me really ill they wanted me to take for bones as i was young..so i just really look after myself eat well rest..exercise..say no and became very selfish lol because i had to...even left my job at 50..will go back into work but only part time..take care all♥️

    Try 5HRT+ , i was recommended this. I tried all the HRT Medication and nothing worked or helped in any way. These vitamins are safe and will help with anxiety lack of sleep and motivation. I bought mine from a company called hello pure, they sell them on Amazon. Hope this helps ... x

    There is no way around anxiety, only through it. Whatever gives you the most panic, do it over and over and over again until it holds no more control over you. Out of all the symptoms that are happening to me, anxiety is the only one I can change myself. You can do it. Lean into the anxiety. There will become a point when you become so exhausted by anxiety that you will say, "Do your best anxiety. If you're going to end me, then so be it." Once you give up all control, it no longer holds any power. Easier said than done, but trust that you have the ability to withstand the worst of anxiety. xo

    Bach rescue has helped me so much. I take lot's of it and always have it on hand. It still comes but I feel a little better...I also changed my life to be way more easy on myself and try not to push myself to hard. I will retire this summer from my job and I feel that will be helpful because I won't be forcing myself to go. Hope this helps you! Your not alone 😃

      Caz240 you must get out of that relationship. I too was in an abusive relationship in my 20's and it was one of the worst times of my life. It made me a mess and it took yrs to get back to my normal self. I couldn't imagine going through meno and dealing with it. I would of gone crazy. Please leave and take care of yourself. Praying for you.
