Good morning everyone!
First, I'm so glad that I found this place. It's kind of sad to me that so many of us walk around feeling so rough, but are afraid to share it. I know I am! I'm scared people will think I'm crazy. So, can I just get some advice? My perimenopause hit me like a train. Literally the anxiety and depression were SO bad and they just hit me so hard. Mornings were the WORST. It's been 2.5 years and I have tried about everything. I will say that acupuncture seems to help some. I really think that it all started around 36? Even though I wore deodorant, I smelled like a teenager and poured sweat from my armpits. This has only gotten worse. Then I started with heavy periods. I literally thought I was having a miscarriage at times. Then massive PMS; super angry leading up to my period and then back to normal. What got my attention was the anxiety and depression (like a pit). I sometimes literally feel like I can feel something dropping off in my (does that make sense to anyone)??? Now, almost 42 (two weeks from now), I barely have a period (like 2-3 days) and I only wear a panty liner. It's more like spotting and brown. Sorry; I know that's gross, but I'm just being real hoping for help. The MOST frustrating part is that all of my levels are in the normal range (I think low normal, but still). I also have hot flashes. Soy seems to help me out some too. Does any of this sound familiar? Thank y'all so much! I promise if I had one wish it would be that all sickness (including hormone struggles would be OVER!)
