hi .. im 43 and am 100% certain that my menopause is well on its way ..
i have all the symptoms .. including :- irregular periods, frequent urination, over emotional, lethargic, foggy brain etc etc ..
i am starting to feel really anxious lately as i know that the change in me is going to have a really bad affect on my family .. my daughter is 9 and is the sweetest little girl you could ever meet .. and my husband is 12 years younger than me ..
my worries re:- my daugher .. i am finding myself snapping at her for absolute no reason at all which is really upsetting me .. i am also crying a lot, which makes my daughter feel concerned for me .. i am forever apologising to her for snapping and for not being myself .. and explain to her that its just womens problems and that she will understand when she is older .. but i just cant cope with the guilt i feel ..
my worries .. re:- my husband .. so my husband is in his early 30's and to be honest, isnt the most understanding of people .. for instance when ive had pmt in the past .. he has said that i am the only woman he knows who is badly affected with it .. as if im exaggerating things .. its so awful at times .. and now im going through these changes .. i just know he isnt going to be my rock .. even though he has said 'we' will get through it .. i cant stop thinking that he will walk when the going gets tough ..
anyway i think i just wanted to know if anybody else is driving themselves crazy with these thoughts ????? i am seeing my family walking around on eggshells for fear of upsetting me and its killing me .. thanks for reading ..
