No place like home!..

Please tell me I'm not going mad, I feel uncomfortable just waiting at the till in shops, a feeling I need to escape, I hope this feeling doesn't last forever, I only really feel comfortable at home!

    Hi...I know how it feels. Somedays I just want to stay home all day. I had an anxiety attack at the check out a while ago. When I have a bad day even waiting to buy bread is bad. I just want to run. Its almost like agoraphobia. Its an uneasiness. Thankfully I don't get it all the time. Mine started about October last year. I just hope it doesn't get worse. I am still managing to work part time but some days it is a challenge. Some ladies on here have had to stop work. Its amazing how our hormones can be so powerful. Take care and know you are not alone in this x

    Hi I'm the same, been like it nearly three years. Can't go anywhere without feeling anxious - don't like being around people I don't know and places I feel vulnerable. Like you im only comfortable at home. All part of this rotten journey and hopefully won't last forever, but for me im happiest at home 😉

      Dear Pink - im right there with you on this one, I do know how you feel. I'm like you total hysterectomy now, removing my remaining ovary hit me like a truck - I tell you my life changed the second after I came round in recovery, it's been hell and still is at times - some days worse than others, every symptom there is and some, it's not easy I feel for you. I wish I could give you answers I really do but the least I can do is send you a great big hug (()) x

    I feel exactly the same and it would be so easy to stay at home and do nothing.

    ive tried to work after surgery to remove my ovaries but surgical menopause had hit me full on and every time I attempt to work I feel awful and want to run.

    I've tried every sort of alternative medicine but none seem to have helped,doc wants me to try antidepressants but I'm really reluctant.

    Has anyone found anything that has helped the awful symptoms of menopause ?
