    Hello Goddess,

    You are most likely perimenopausal which leads up to menopause. You will be considered in menopause when you have been free of periods for 1 yr. Blood tests are somewhat iffy and don't always tell the correct story.

    There are plenty of great posts on here that can help guide you through this time. Be sure to look through past past to see if any ring true for you.

    Wishing you a smooth journey during this time.

    Well in my opinion this is definitely menapause. I am speaking from my

    own experiences and doctors are so flaky especially when it comes to

    menapause it seems.

    I think the best help you can get Goddess, at the moment,

    is advice from

    all the knowledgeable ladies on here(we are all living it after all)!

    Keep posting we will try to help☺☺

    All the best to you

      I think perhaps you would benefit from some counselling. Are you

      in UK? You can self refer and get free councelling, just ring your

      surgery and they will tell you how to go about it. Other than that

      learning to breathe in a special way is supposed to help and calm

      You. Look for instruction on the internet.

      I have been having a very stressful time of late and have felt quite

      anxious at times. When it comes over me I stop, sit down and watch

      a bit of comedy on my favourite channel (Gold) it takes my mind

      off my worries for a while and calms me. If you like a particular

      type of music that could work for you.

      I know this all sounds simple and it is far from easy, but personally

      I wouldn't want to go down the medication route. I have managed

      some how and I hope this may be of some help for you.

      Keep talking to us Goddess, I will talk about anything and everything

      if it will help take your mind off all this chaos.

      All my best wishes to you.

      Thank you so much… unfortunately for my medical coverage doesn't cover counseling, but I'm going to YouTube relaxiation videos. And start applying them to my life.
