Menopause feels like someone died. Total Apathy.

Posted , 9 users are following.

Ever since my periods suddenly stopped to years ago I feel like someone died. I just dont feel anything much anymore. My libido has also vanished. i feel like i'm existing, not living. i'm not depressed or anything but i feel like i'm just doing time till i can leave. i tired joining classes, dancing, fitness, yoga, eating the right food, going on a holiday... i still do all that but my heart is not in it. i'm also on HRT. I just don't care one way or another what happens. A total blanket of Apathy. Can anyone relate to this?

    I'm on HRT too and feel exactly like you... my get up and go left me together with my periods around 5 years ago and since then I just push myself to carry on as normal and I do carry on as normal but soooo sluggishly!

    I have an active life i guess but I have no emotion much for anything...

    My mother, having been through it, tells me it will eventually pass so I'm just hanging in here until that moment... it can't come soon enough!!

    I really feel for you as I know exactly how you feel, almost like we're mourning our former self!

    Stay strong, good luck honey.

      Thanks, i sure hope your mom is right and things do improve! Nature's totally unfair to women! Menopause is such a final thing, you're right, it just feels like mourning all that we were and lost overnight.
