Scream and shout and fed up!

Hi guys, sorry to come here and vent but I know if I try to tell people at home the only reply I'll get is "what do you have to moan about, how can you feel depressed your life is easy! Blah blah blah" for once I would like to know how it feels to have someone cook your tea, bring you your tea, take away your plates then clean the kitchen whilst you sit and do nothing! Feeling so sorry for myself today and just want to cry, I ache all over and sick of this awful menopause and every symptom it gives me, I wake up every morning not even wanting to get up and dreading the day, my memory is shocking today and I can hardly even string a sentence together, it's only just 7pm and I'm completely ready to go curl up in my bed and cry myself to sleep! Why do we have to feel so awful and I actually feel bad for feeling like this sad xx sorry again but needed to vent somewhere! Just want there to be a switch I can turn myself back to me again 😓😓

    Bless you honey. If it's any comfort I feel exactly the same. No point telling anyone in my house. They think I'm a hypochondriac.

    It's good to come on here and let of steam.

    Go and listen to some relaxation music download an app on your phone or laptop.

    Do some breathing exercises.

    Be kind to yourself.

    If you don't take care of you nobody else will.

    Sending hugs x

    Thank you for your replies ladies glad I'm not feeling all alone, I've yet to start my HRT as I still haven't been able to see the doctor regarding taking them with having aura migraines 😓 Everytime I feel sorry for myself or grumpy the Hubby always says what the hell is wrong with you, I've told him to google menopause he won't, he thinks the only reason I have the symptoms I have is because I've read it online and I'm also a hypochondriac 😡 Xx

    Lou-Lou I had a terrible day yesterday, in fact been really bad physically and mentally for weeks even months

    I've managed to go walking and shopping today with my husband, I've been really imbalanced drunk feeling, shaking and vibrating, sore stiff neck etc etc but no nausea or headache thank goodness, I had that yesterday with the doom n gloom depressed feeling which I can't cope with

    I'm on tibolone, been on if for 3 months, but I don't think you get enough estrogen or progesterone on it, it's a kinda half way house. I've tried lots of HRTs but the side effects have been too much for me to handle

    Just really wanted to say to you that you'll get bad days and days where you won't be great but manageable, I never imagined menopause could be as bad as this, I have two sisters one who's through the other end and one a year younger than me, she takes her HRT although she has problems with fatigue and a b12 deficiency she lives her life as normal, I can't get my head around how I've been affected so bad 😳

    Anyway, take strength from the fact that there's lots of us out there who are suffering the same as you but try and defy the symptoms and sensations, get angry with them rather than anxious i find this gives me some feeling of control if you know what I mean

    Things will settle and balance out eventually but try not to despair life's too short

    Hope this helps in some way

    Take care

    Brenda xx

    You are all so kind here and makes me feel so much better about it, I am worried about side effects on the HRT and have read a lot about them, I also Neva know when my period might come which I think affects my feelings a lot too and at 36 I should still feel 36! When I stand up from sitting down I feel like "a old lady" every joint cracks! I'm on thyroid medication for overactive thyroid which I'm now convinced is too low for me, I have also thought about trying to get blood tests to test my vitamins and see if any of those are low and if they are maybe sorting them out may help a little?

      Hi Lou-lou. It's fine to vent hun, we all need to sometimes, especially when you have an ignorant husband at home (sorry, but he doesn't sound understanding in the slightest!) One night when he expects his dinner, why don't you say to him we're having a chinese tonight & you're paying!! I need a break!! Take control!! Try & tought it out til you see your doctor Lou, as we spoke about before & interestingly deidra's post, you may be able to start hrt low dose with close monitoring on the migraine side of things. hrt virtually eliminated my hormone related headaches & I did get the odd migraine during periods of extreme stress. Don't give up, don't let the ignorant hubby get to you - even tell him I feel sorry for you - when he asks why - say because "you haven't got the ABILITY to try & understand or listen to your wife when she needs support from the most important person in her life". then just walk away into another room (probably the kitchen to wash up by the sounds of it) & just let him think about it. My hubby is pretty understanding but my hrt has made things much better now. But before, we could chat about it, but he didn't really know what to say to help me, but would spontaneously give me a hug, or just hoover! His own little way of "supporting" me. I would really try saying what I suggested above, if not just in an attempt to make him think & be a bit more considerate. You ARE worth it Lou, don't be walked over. Hope you see your doctor as soon as possible to talk about the hrt. keep us all posted, & feel free to vent hun, you're not alone. xxxx

      Hi deidra, can you tell me what tablet your neurologist prescribed you for migraine? I take it it's to prevent the migraine

      I'm very sensitive to tablet side effects so usually stick to taking naramig-Triptan which I have used for menstrual migraines for years but they are less effective now

      Thanks

      Brenda x

    It's ok to vent to us LouLou because we are all here for each other. You literally just summed up my life from the cooking of the tea to the aches all over to the crying and tiredness. And I get the same response as well except my family adds that they think my symptoms are in my head lol. Peri is a horrible faze in our life but we will male it through this!

    Hi lou lou 😢😢😢😢😢

    I know exactly how u feel.

    I ache all over day in day out, I work hard up at 6 Monday to Friday and I work weekends.

    I dint feel like myself anymore feels like im living in a dream. My brain fog is terrible to I constantly don't know what I'm gonna say next.

    I'm also very teary abd embarrassed to show it so often cry alone feeling sorry for myself which then only makes u feel worse.

    Us women go through so much men have it easy.

    8 years I've been going through this it started with aches and pains in my shoulder then night sweats hot flushes then irregular periods now wow it's taken a jump the pains are just everywhere .

    I don't seem to laugh anymore abd I'm definately no longer the life and soul of the party now I'm the grouch of the party always moaning always hurrying people home not wanting visitors at my home arghhhh this is NOT ME.

    I just want my life back
