MONTH FROM HELL!!!!

Posted , 8 users are following.

Hi ladies

I haven't been on for a while, after having a reasonable could of months with just general symptoms I've been whacked full force this month with lots from bloated belly, nausea, joint pain, feeling mega negative and everyone getting on my nerves to rage and weariness, health anxiety to doom thoughts, am sick of my life... Period due at some stage from now although God knows when. I have just had a full on sobbing session with the hubby about everything including the fact that I'm turning into someone I don't know and I hate feeling like this, I want me back!! Now I want a MacDonald's large meal and a ring doughnut because I've turned into a human disposal unit who eats her own body weight every day then complains about my big belly.... Aaaarrrrgggghhhh!!!! Stop the peri menopause bus I want off!!!! Hope you're all doing okay, lots of squishy hugs Sheena xxx

    So sorry Sheena

    I'm there with you..I had about 6 months of quite feeling semi normal and about 7 weeks ago everything came back 10 times worst..

    My husband doesn't like me much these days, I'm constantly arguing about everything any discussion he tries to have with me ..I don't like the sad person I become..same as you everyday something else anxious about my health my children in my head always some disaster is playing outsmile I use to be so fun to be around so crazy I had so many friends and now seat here day in and day out by myself worrying about any new symptom pops up!!! The more I watch my diet no coffee no alcohol no sweets no no no.... the worst I feel!!! The only thing I enjoy right now is my daily walk ...love it, time to myself clear my head and day dream a littlesmile I have days I wanna get in my car and drive off and don't look back!!!! You are not alone!!! This week I'm dealing with nausea first thing in the morning..like I'm having morning sickness!!! Feel better!

    I am going through same Sheena and I feel for you bigtime.  This forum is new to me and I'm so grateful for it already.  the only thing worse than everything we are going through is going through it alone.  I'm so overwhelmed this month with anxiety, health anxiety, horrible symptoms (that ramp up the health anxiety!), guilt from absolutely losing my mind like a crazy person...the list goes on.  I've had to stay with my mom for the week because it got so bad I could not look after myself much less anyone else.  I've always been a tough, strong girl...this is so hard to get through and I am beating myself up.  I'm too early into this to even have any good advice - but I am thinking of you and I think you should have the McDonalds and or donut if you want.  The salt and sugar cravings are really strong for me too...and we don't deserve another thing to feel bad about.  You can eat heathy when your hormones settle down more.  I really hope you feel better soon xxx

      This forum has been a God send to me, I have a very non understanding GP surgery who took months of tests etc to decide I was in fact peri menopause and that was only because the nurse agreed with me. The ladies on here are unbelievable, support, advice, guidance and humor are what keep me going. Someone is always going thru the same as you. Ask questions get advice from here. Big hugs to you x

    Hi Sheena..sorry to hear things flared up again. Apparently this does happen. After the last few months on BHRT and doing pretty good. Actually posted here a few times about my success, I too had a flare up of sorts. About a week ago started with a bizzar migraine and a shocking mood swing which my darling boyfriend copped big time. The migraine lasted 6 days and after my stupid outburst I had to sit down and try to explain again why I carried on like a lunatic and how sorry I was and how this menopause thing had reared its ugly head again. I had some spotting too that totally irritated me as this stuff was supposed to be over. Also after the outburst I spent the next few days feeling depressed and confused. Im so disappointed in myself for doing this to someone I love so much, even though he knows why. Its like there's someone else inside me when it happens.

    Maybe this is the end of it now. Who knows. Only time will tell.
