Hello everyone. I have been following discussions on this forum for more than a year now and it has been extremely helpful when the going gets so tough that you don t wanna go anymore but you know that you can t just stop either.
My story: 46 years old with horrible physical, emotional, mental symptoms. It all started escalating a year ago when I went through a bad break up and moved to a huge, bustling, hot, sticky South East Asian metropolis for work. The heat and humidity are extreme year around. It's very hard to make friends, everyone around me is sorted with parteners and family, distances are very long, it takes hours to get from A to B, plus it s noisy, fast paced and very vain. All that conbined with my roller coaster hormones have kept me in a constant state of discomfort and that's on my good days. I have had severe anxiety and depression, hot flashes magnified by the heat, palpitations, insomnia and most importantly noone to talk to. On top of all I have developed extreme health anxiety due to not having anyone to share my thoughts with and constant ruminating, searching my body for strange lumps, bumps and sensations, which as we all know there are plenty in peri and the heat doesn't help either. I ve had tests and I m perfectly fine and also very fit (used to be a dancer, practicing yoga every day). I ve been taking theanine and rodhiola for my mood, which kind of, sort of helps, b complex and co q10 to protect my heart from all the (involuntary) workout that anxiety gives it. A couple of weeks before my period things get so bad that I don t know if I can take it anymore but I know that the only way is to take it because what? This Sunday morning I woke up in panic after a very bad night's sleep because they are having a party at the temple accross the street and they started blasting silly pop hits from the speakers at 6 in the morning. It brought me to the edge! On an impulse I ordered natural progesterone cream to try but I m really scared of it because of all the controversy surrounding them .
That's it basically. I just wanted to add my story to the hundreds of similar stories that all of you have posted here and maybe get some feedback from you. Thanks for reading. Hasta la libertad!
