    I dont even know what to say other then im sitting at the table wth my daughter and i just read your post and im holding back my tears so she doesnt see me. You literally described me to a T that honestly it is freaking me out a little bit. The only other thing i could add is a very sour vomit taste in my mouth. Mouth is so dry i wake up and my lips are stuck together. I dont even know what else to say like i said you listed EVERYTHING i feel.

    Its weird because on top of the vivid dreams/nightmares which is every night, I also feel a very bad presence around me at times and i will get cold and feel like im not alone. I also feel this presence in my nightmares.

    God bless you thats all i can say.

    God bless all of you ❤

    Can i ask you a silly question tho- do you feel like some of your sensations lessen after you urinate?

      Hi Susan, awww bless you!! Yes it is so strange how all our symptoms are so similar, but yet not familiar with anyone around here by me or doctors, you try and explain and others just don't get how bad it truly is.. That can make you feel so all alone.. Um so very greatful for this forum and that we all can relate to one another, take care and stay strong...🌷

    Thanks for sharing, Gypsy. Somehow reading your post strangely makes me feel better. It is comforting to know that I am not alone in my suffering.

    I consider myself to be an incredibly strong person, but these last two years of perimenopause have been devastating for me and so difficult to bear, but I continue on because I want my life, and I want to go back to the energetic, optimistic, loving, and goal-oriented person who I used to be.

    Here is a list of what I have experienced over the last two years (in no particular order): feeling spaced out and disconnected from everyone and from life, high anxiety, crushing depression, mood shifts from peace to annoyance to rage to crying and back again (sometimes in the span of seconds), never knowing how I am going to feel from one moment to the next, exhaustion, fear of everything, bloating, gas, diarrhea, weight loss, inability to feel any pleasure, feeling no desire to interact with anyone, neediness, extreme sensitivity to smell which can make me want to vomit, extreme sensitivity to noise, a warping of my visual perceptions, and so on...

    I wish all of the women on this forum the strength to continue forward. We will make it!

      Hi bev, it really amazes me how strong us woman really are! I can so relate to all your symptoms also , and that depression really can grip you bad and not let up, it has gotten much much better the depression part that is but can remember how it had a good hold on me for about six months straight, and oh man I never want to relive that part of peri, it was truly scary.....we need to all stay strong that we will one day have our fulfilling lives back once again, stay strong, thank you for sharing:)

    ANYONE ever see things off and on that's not there like a bug or fly SHARE if you have. Like coming out of Walgreen's today pulling out had window down I seen a big like bubble bee flying by my window like it was trying to come in so quickly tried to roll of window and I finally passed it first my son (who has autism) said he seen it but when I ask him again when we got home he said NO. One time I seen a bug on the window I blinked if that and it disappeared CAN anyone relate please respond this has me freaked out like was it a bug or seeing things that looked real!

      Hi crasado, you made me laugh about the bug ha ha! But all seriousness yes to seeing different things , as a matter of fact, my symptoms are really ramped up and intense these last few days, and sitting at my table writing something and thought I kept seeing something out of my dining window, I kept looking up from what I was writing a bunch of times only to see nothing.. So very weird that you mentioned the bug thing, also been having a lot of yellow lines in and across my vision that is a new one for me, but I just chalk that up as my vision disturbances... This if you ask me is all so bizarre I feel like an alien walking around down here sometimes ha ha.. Thanks for sharing take care ❤

    WOW!!! WOW!! WOW!!! You have named so many symptoms that so many of us had or are experiencing. I couldn't believe you hit the nail so accurate. I almost cried as I read this because I remember feeling so many of these. It's the worst feeling EVER! Menopause robs you of things you used to love doing and it makes you isolate yourself because of the feelings. All I can do is pray and pray alot. I Take my Vitamin D, Fish Oil, Magnesium Glycinate and B12 and I wear a LadyCare Magnet Plus that has helped a lot. It doesn't take all the symptoms away but it has helped with those horrible thoughts that kept my head in a tornado all day long thinking something was wrong with me, feeling sick, hopeless and severe depression and sweats. I still have the brain fog, fuzziness, not very clear thinking and some thoughts however; things are better. All I can say is pray and see if any supplements will work for you. You may have a dr who can relate and assist but its not likely because most dr's don't know what to do. Oh! I'm so thankful for this forum. It has saved me many times. Take care of yourself.
