    So sorry to hear you are having a hard time Emma You truly are not alone. I'm having a very low day today have felt so low and teary since I woke up and can't snap out if it. My world has changed so much since going through menopause it's so tough to handle some days. Yesterday I felt like a zombie at work and could sense bad feelings towards me from the team I was in...it really upset me because I know that's that the usual me just sitting there not able to even conversate. If you have time today maybe you can do something that makes you feel good..purely for you...whether it's listening to a song you love...taking a long bath....nice walk etc I'm going to try it too. I'm always happy to talk as know what you are going through. Take care and hang on in there, remember you are a beautiful special woman and you are loved but going through a very challenging period in your life thats difficult for people to understand that arent going it but it will get better one day. Lots of love xxx

    Hi Emma,

    I know exactly how you're feeling.  I struggled with peri menopause and now been in menopause for over 18 momths.  Have resisted HRT as I have a phobia of tablets.  I've had no one to talk to as all my friends haven't started yet and feel so alone.  I work two days a week in the City and for the three days I'm at home, I'm so lonely.  My own fault as I don't want to mix with people. I feel paranoid and think no one likes me (no proof whatsoever).  I'm snappy, short tempered and the anxiety is shocking.  However, two weeks ago, I went to the doctors and burst into tears.  He was lovely.  I've had blood tests which are all normal (was convinced I had bone cancer!) and have today picked up a prescription for HRT patches.  Very, very nervous but I don't feel I have any quality of life at the moment and need to get "normal" for my little girl...... I was a late mum so all the mums are younger than me so feeling very alone with no-one to talk to.  I've suffered hot flushes, aches and pains, itchy skin and eyes but it's the low mood and short temper and anxiety and paranoia that I can't stand anymore........ here to chat.

      Hi ladies,

      Tears streaming down my face reading your messages. I'm so sorry! I went through all the symptoms you listed and some more! 5 years ago we moved to a new town no friends and going through this hell with no one to talk!

      But I'm here to tell you it will get better. The crying will stop and the itching and the horrible headaches..and as time goes by you will notice some improvements..still I'm having my bad days but I start seeing some good days as well.. the majority of the symptoms are gone. I gained weight without any change on my diet it was so frustrating and the last couple of months I notice I'm loosing the bellysmile my body aches and anxiety is the two symptoms that I can't rid off!!

      I believe me cutting caffeine and taking vitamin D helped to ease this craziness!!

      Feel better-Hugs to all of you!

    Hello. I can talk anytime. I also tend to isolate myself when I feel down but it's important to get out every day. Force yourself to move because it will be worth it.
