    Maria, I don't know how much you read on the boards, but this is a major major issue for me. I  have posted about it frequently, several other women have too. It's gotten so bad for me, that I am now seeing a therapist. I try to divert my mind to something else when it gets too bad, but, its very difficult because my symptoms often lead to the stress.

    Hi Maria yep this is s classic symptom and so very hard to manage on a daily basis.

    I had a terrible few months recently with virtually constant negative thoughts of doom, gloom and anxiety whirling through my mind (even when I slept) and it got really debilitating at one stage. I have had private tears at work when I have to dash off to the loo to "let it out" and try and carry on as though nothing has happened.

    I now have regular acupuncture ehich has helped me no end but still get blue/teary sometimes.

    I feel for you hunny but all us ladies her understand and seeking help/reasdurance or just an outlet to your worries with us all really helps (i have found everyone here very supportive and a true God send).

    Sending you love and hugs xxx

      Kathy, I feel exactly the same as you do! Used to love life, work, shopping, restaurants, getting up in the mornings. Talk about doom and gloom....it's an understatement. Thought I'd love not getting periods anymore. Was I in for the shock of life!!! My girlfriends, co-workers my age or older seem like they breezed right thru menopause and I have the upmost debilitating symptoms. The only women I seem to relate to are on this forum. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Maria,

    I totally understand where you are coming from. The anxiety and feelings of doom and gloom are the worst for me. I really struggle and my own thoughts scare me. I have vivid and sometimes scary dreams because my mind is so consumed with the negative thoughts. I try to do things to keep me distracted and take advantage of the days when I do feel ok. Some days I really struggle to try and keep from thinking the worst things that sends my anxiety over the top. You are not alone. There are a lot of here going through the same thing. This forum is really good. Keep coming and sharing as we are all here for each other. We will get through this.

      I have that at times too. I wake up feeling nervous and sometimes shaky. It makes for tough days and it certainly makes you think the worst. I never realized hormones can have this much of an effect over our bodies. Hope you get some relief soon.
