    I sure do feel like you are feeling.  My anxiety is thru the roof.  I always jump to the worst case scenario.  Hot flashes, night sweats, nausea, diarrhea, constipation, heart palpitations, chest pains.  The list goes on!  I am thankful for this group.  It is nice to know that others are going thru the same things.  I am 55 as well. Hang in Jan! You are not alone 😊

      Hi Sue,

      Yes me too ! Ongoing anxiety, such a nightmare isn’t it ? I think it’s my worst symptom to be honest.

      Do you take anything for it ? I’m always overthinking and coming up with the worst care senario . . .  Any appointment I have, such as getting my hair done is a real struggle for me 😩  x hugs to you

      Hello Debbie,

      I am taking Passion flower and an herbal menopause supplement.   I have taken Zoloft for anxiety before and it really helped.  I am trying the natural way this time.  I will give it a couple of months to work.  If if doesn’t I may have to try something else.  I hate anxiety!

      Thankyou ... I’ve been thinking about going to the gp and get put on antidepressants he offered months ago but I wanted to try on my own but to be honest I can’t stand who I have become since going through perimenopause, I’m taking a holiday next month with my partner and my brother and his partner but already worrying where the hospital is incase I’m ill .... I seem to be taken over by this peri rollercoaster ... I wish you all the best on your journey through this phase in our life xx
