Perimenopause and flat feeling

Posted , 7 users are following.

I'm currently experiencing a feeling of flatness. I just can't seem to get excited or enthusiastic about things that I once did.. I hate this feeling.

I feel nothing sometimes, expressionless. I can't speak or do anything. It makes me just want to sit there and be zoned out.. Is this a normal perimenopause symptom??

I've never been like this. It's frightening..

    Yes - I too go through periods of feeling like this. Sometimes it's days - it's even lasted a couple of weeks. But it does lift and I feel like me again. I am not saying it's easy to go through because it's actually quite heartbreaking - but I try so hard to keep the age old mantra in my head "this too shall pass".

    Yes, the apathy, flatness, just not wanting to do anything... that’s one of my biggest problems.  It tends to hit me on weekends after roughing out the work week.  I used to love getting things done on weekends and enjoying that time.

    I've been like this all day, it's as though I have been hypnotised! I couldn't enjoy my chilled Sunday, instead I watched TV not really taking an interest or sitting outside with my head in my hands. Its such an awful feeling. I hope you dine suffer with it too much.
