My wife has been admitted to all of the surrounding psych wards over the last 10 years, starting with the first signs of menopause. I wish to get in contact with anyone in similar circumstances, because I have been unsuccessful in convincing any of at least a dozen psychiatrists that there is any relation to menopause.
We have found a medication that stabilizes her, but besides the horrendous expense, I believe it is like fixing a watch with a sledge-hammer. If you are interested, I think it may be helpful to pool our experiences, and even look for others 'in the same boat'.
My hope is that because my wife's condition was coincident with menopause, there may a more specific treatment. Also, I understand menopausal conditions are not permanent, and yet, so far, all medical diagnosis suggest her condition is permanent.
I am frustrated at the inflexible position of the medical profession; that my wife's condition is permanent, when the solution to her symptoms at the moment was discovered almost randomly,by the trial of possibly 10 other drugs first.
