    Yes, I'm looking for myself too. Seems to take a lot of time. Just over a year and just starting to calm down. Today was the first day I left the house, did not cry and did not care although, I still have a ways to go. Concentration still off and still somewhat dizzy. That lowers my confidence that causes my fear. For me at least. The anxiety from that is the worst. You seem to lose your soul with this for a while. I try each day now to focus on the present, the here and now and accept that in time this will pass and try to just make the best of it and go with the flow. It's so freakin hard. You also, need to make peace with anything from your past that is bothering you and let it go. Easier said than done but, you have to try. This seems to kick up a lot from the past for some and did for me. Many days initially I could barely move, was barely alert. It's coming although, it seems for me it's been a slow moving process and has taken months at a time to see any shift in progress. Hang in there Bev. Your not alone!

    i know how you feel. i have about 7 good days a month. i make the most of them. hopefully you can have a few good ones to focus on. treat yourself. on those good days i get my chores done, cook special meals from my husband but i also dye my hair, get my nails done, go walking.

    this forum helps my bad days.

    hang in there.

      hi

      my blood tests results are attached. i had my levels checked months before and the oestradiol levels were about the same and this was befor having the patch so now my levels are normal.

      the specialist at clinic suggested seeing how i feel in a few months and if the anxiety creeps up try topping up with gel and also try testoterone also

      i couldnt believe how quickly my anxiety stopped - you dont need to feel like you do. try and see a speacialist image
