    My dear, you are not alone. Mine kicked in at a time I lost my mother so I thought that was the reason but way into one year, I still have it on and off. I have not had it for almost three months but for some reason, it started again on Sunday. It shall be well and especially with the support of ladies on this forum. Don't give up

    Hi Deb

    yes it is all part of peri.. ( hormonal emotions) 

    i had this too, mine was at its worst when my periods stopped .

    my periods stopped in sept last year ( 2013) 

    and for 7 months after the last period i would just cry .. 

    felt very emotional .. Slightest thing set me off, took things to heart more and would just have tears..

    there was a pattern though it seemed to kick in every six weeks .. Like a PMT but no period .

    the last episode was in April i cooked Sunday lunch and sat there eating then next minute sat there crying at the table  😳 ( it wasnt my cooking ) 

    i was very sensitive to things that would not normally bother me .

    anyway April was when i took the B6 and all got better after..

      Hi Jay 

      Going to to start the Viamins as you suggest.  It's hard to believe that they could cure it ? But if they have worked for you then that's fantastic.  Love Deb x😊

      Hi Jay,

      i am always nervous to take tablets 😢 I bought them  from Holland and Barrett but they still seem to have so many other things in them ? I would really like to find an organic Version that was completely pure ? Maybe that doesn't exist I don't know . . .  I'm just silly like that x

    Hi Debbie, yes emotions run high! You can be full of life , the world is great then two days later you have anxiety as thick as maple syrup and feelings of terror, sadness and tears..As i move through this lovely journey I am noticing now that it happens when I "should" be getting my period and at this time since ovaries are not pumping out eggs your estrogen is surging because it wants that egg to go..Elevated estrogen levels cause many symptoms it is acutally called "estrogen dominance" Know you have this post to share and read it helps so much with me and agree with Jay..take B-6!! Good luck and hang in there!

      Hi Debbie 

      if your still have regualr periods it can take years to reach post menopause

      ( no period for 12 months) 

      took me 10 years to reach this .. I am age 50 now and all done 😃

      some ladies lit take longer some ladies sail through in a couple of years..

      Hi Jay,

      they are not completely regular sometimes 35 days sometimes 22 and so on.  I'm getting a little mixed up on this subject ?? Are you saying you felt all the horrible symtoms during peri menopause or only now post menopause ?

      hi Debs 

      i felt peri symptoms for 10 years ..

      you just have to accept it, try and understand it and crack on basically.

      just try your best with supplements that the body cries out for and lacks, be kind to yourself and not worry about it .. ' stay positive is the key' 

      post menopause you have different things to contend with .

      you need not worry about that until your post meno .. 😊
