I am so glad that I found this forum! I read through many postings today and cried with relief. I feel so bad inside. I miss myself--the me I used to be.
I have a question--I am 49 years old and my period still comes regularly every 27 days. It is a little lighter and slightly less painful, but still as regular and as disruptive to my life as when I was a teen.
At the same time, I have many of the symptoms of perimenopause--sweats, anxiety, constant feeling of dread, racing heart, brain fog, drop in sexual desire. I can't deal with my jobs, my dog, my house, my exercise routine...all of the thing the old me loved.
My period is here now so I am having trouble formulating my question....am I in for another 10 years of living in this liminal state where I suffer with regular periods like I am 20 and suffer with perimenopause symptoms like I am 50?
I feel like I am dying inside....
