So i was wondering if a lot of my symptoms are actually from menopause or from the mental changes and anguish the hormone scramble brings on. I mean i know the very far apart periods , headaches and hot flashes are from the menopause, but what about the nausea, gut issues, insomnia, anxiety, afraid to leave my house and do anything...could that part be from depression brought on by the hormone changes? What worries me is no healthy diet, vitamins, exercise or even counseling (tried them all) will make it any better...so what else can we do if this is the case? Some women can take hormones and antidepressants with no problems, but i cant! I have horrible side effects to them both so what am i supposed to do? Not to mention regardless what anyone says it really isnt safe to stay on either one of those for life cause they each carry a risk of causing something that will make us sicker so eventually you would have to stop taking them and go through that whole adjustment period of your body thinking it needs them to survive....oh my goodness what lovely lives we live! Im so jealous of the women who just sail through this nightmare! So i felt like i had to rant...any thoughts from anyone?
