    Hi Susan ,I too suffer from these roller coaster emotions ,ranging from anger,depression and anxiety ,used to have at least one week of the month around ovulation time that I felt " normal " didn't even have that this month ,hope not a sign of things to come ! I am 50 next month which isn't helping ! Yesterday after a lovely 5 mile walk with friends and dog , I took to my bed and ate cake for the rest of the day completely lacking any motivation to do anything else , am usually on the go all the time , working 3 days a week on a busy ward , grand daughter sitting etc but not yesterday ! Felt so fat and guilty consuming all that cake ! My poor husband who is very long suffering ( not sure how much longer for ! ) finds it very hard to suffer the "rejection" from me , he is very tactile !!! Unfortunately relationships in the bedroom dept are virtually non existent (thanks to me ) ! This is a very hard time in a lot of womens lives , not only are we suffering hormonal problems ,but we are also juggling lots of other balls , elderly parents, offspring , grand children and work , the list goes on ! I know we need to be kind to ourselves but the guilt I feel for affecting thoss around me (predominantly husband) is very great ! Feel like I just want to be left alone most of the time ! Anyway am hoping that one day this will all come to an end ,am considering HRT but whilst it may ( or may not ) make me feel better now ,I realise that it only delays the symptoms ! To cut a very long story short you most definitely are not alone . Best wishes to you !

    Hi Susan I know they are really crappy times when the hormones are in a whirlwind!! I am at this point too have had anxiety ..light bleeding for 3 weeks when I hadn't had a period in like 6 months now full on..ugh! The key thing that gets me to continue on is that although it is so frightening and makes you feel like you are falling apart it is normal for us to feel all these crazy symptoms. I sort of wish I could find a really good book about it that almost puts you in a place where you can laugh about it..if anyone finds one let me know. Sometimes you read so much "serious" stuff it gets old...need something to lightening it up I guess - know that we are here for you!!

    I don't know if you are much of a coffee drinker, but last week I decided it was time to give up coffee, again, and really, really cut back on sugar. It was very difficult changing habits, especially things I looked forward to at different times of the day, but my heart racing is gone and I generally feel much more mellow and able to handle all the things that come in a day. Been trying to cut down on the processed foods too, and getting in more fresh fruit and oatmeal, things like that. Don't know if that helps, but it's a pretty easy place to start! Hang in there!

      Thank you for the advise I don't drink coffee but I tend to drink ginger ale because of stomach issues, I do need to cut down on the sweets though. I am diabetic and sometime I need a little bit of sugar once in a while.
