After close to a year of dealing with depression, anxiety, intrusive thoughts, and feelings of terror, things seem to be moving in a more positive direction. I am noticing that most days, I am getting periods (sometimes a good chunk of the day) where I am my old self (laughing, animated, happy). I have had a number of close friends comment that they are seeing more of the real me.
I don't mean to sound ungrateful, but it is still difficult dealing with the times when I don't feel well because the symptoms can be pretty intense.
I also have lots of cramping and bloating (sometimes for days on end), which are physical manifestations of the dramatic changes happening in my body.
I do my best, during these times, to stay productive and make choices from a place of wellness.
What I want to know is this...Does my experience follow a similar trajectory to other women going through the latter stages of perimenopause?
I would love to hear some stories (especially positive ones of recovery and renewal).
