Hello everyone . I know this has meant I’ve gone back a bit after missing a period , but at least I’m feeling better . My period is heavy , but not too painful . The thing is you don’t realise just how ill hormones can make you feel . Mine were obviously completely out of whack . I had so many symptoms in that month from when my last period was due to when I finally came on . I had pains in my chest and had convinced myself it was my heart , but was given the all clear ( had an ecg ) , nausea , aches all over , fatigue , insomnia , panic attacks, migraine , reflux , no appetite you name it I had it . To top it all my anxiety and depression were at their peak , but thankfully I’ve come through ! My husband kept telling me it’s only the menopause and that I wasnt dying and I had to keep telling myself that , but when you feel that bad and lousy it’s not easy forgetting about it and laughing it off . Now my husband has man flu and he’s walking around sniffing and coughing and moaning to himself . I really feel like saying it’s only a cold , forget about it . I love him dearly , but if men had to deal with our peri for even a few days , I think maybe they would see things in a different light . After all my husbands cold will go , but I don’t know how long this rollercoaster ride will go on for me .
