Seriously, between constantly bleeding, mood swings and wanting to kill my other half because he's done something unforgivable (like leaving a tea towel in the wrong place), my relationship is in danger of falling apart.
I met my other half last year and couldn't keep my hands off him. At 42 I never thought I would meet anyone. The first 6 months were amazing, it was a whirlwind of fun, we moved in together, went on amazing holiday's, meals out and had the best time ever.
Then peri-menopause hit me. And hit hard. I'm constantly bleeding, I feel horrendous, I'm angry all of the time, tired and feel totally un-feminine.
I am so fed up. Even on the (odd) day that I'm not bleeding, I don't feel like sex (I don't feel like getting up in the morning, let alone anything energetic). And when I do try, I'm constantly worried about either flooding or having a hot sweat.
I'm horrified that this is happening to me and I feel cheated. This should be the best time of my life and I've been robbed by my hormones.
I also have fibroids and the consultant wants to 'wait and see'.
I'm totally sick of this. I'm 43 and I feel like an 80 year old. I've had enough!!
