    hi lizzy.  you're not alone in this.  I was like that for a long time and my worst year was last year.  I am 47 too and felt past it last year, up to the beginning of this year, but don't feel like that now.  So just to let you know that although I still am not 100% or near it with symptoms, I don't feel the same way I felt last year, feeling 'past it' as you said.  you have to just hang on, because it does improve. But make sure you are looking after yourself and getting good nutrition and some exercise to keep yourself fit.

    Hi Lizzy, I know your feelings exactly! It does get better like metamorphed says. It takes a little time but you will get there. Make sure that you at least go for a light walk everyday even if you dont feel up to it and stay on this website...reading and posting. It really helps! Take care and I will be praying for you!

      I know! It took a good few five months for me to want to walk. My husband and I would go for walks in the evening and I would be talking about symptoms non stop....then I noticed after about a month of walking the conversation started changing to normal stuff. I still get anxiety and feel a spacey disconnection from life but I am able to do a little more at times. I promise things will change for you...just be good to yourself. If you need to cry, cry. Its ok we have all been there and still go through it now and again. Im here for you smile

    I get my very low moments that seem to come out of nowhere . I guess most of this is to do with hormones fluctuating , but none of this helps even though you realise from all the ladies that post on here that this is a perfectly normal part of the peri and menopause . Kind regards Jane X

    You're not alone xx along with other symptoms is my low mood. Some days It feel like I'm constantly crying and others I manage to hold it together. I'm fed up with myself so goodness knows what my husband thinks! Xx

    Hey lizzy, I suffer from feeling depressed, anxious and panicky. These feelings come and go. Some days I am okay, other days, I am not. I find taking magnesium supplements help me with the anxiety and panic attacks.

    I also find that going to work, and being around my co workers help takes my mind off of things I am also on hormone therapy. I make sure me and my husband go out frequently. If I stay in the house to long I start feeling anxious and closed in.

    It sucks going through this. Hang in there. Everybody here is experiencing the same things.

      Hi lizzy, sorry you're feeling so crappy. welcome to the club no-one wants to join!! the first step is maybe to see if your doc surgery has a  doc or nurse that specialises in meno/gynae - many surgeries do these days, & make an appointment to see them. it sounds like you are beginning peri-menopause & they can determine this by age, symptoms, menstrual cycles. they can do blood tests for hormones, but they are highly unreliable in diagnosing peri/meno as hormones fluctuate so often even from hour to hour, so most docs diagnose as i described above. you can talk to them about your symptoms etc & discuss whether hrt might be an option for you(your decision ultimately). i started hrt in april & my mental symptoms & headaches started to improve 2-3wks in, & have got better with more time on hrt. xx
