this has been the worst time of my life :(

Posted , 9 users are following.

Can someone please remind me that this will stop one day please? Or at least ease up. Started myself on B12 supplements a month ago & to be honest i've been much more stable. Missed 2 more periods recently, but then had 2 in April. This week seem to have slipped down into depression and anxiety again, horrible dreams too. It's so scary as I remember how desperate I was not so long ago. I'm still on no meds, & now have to wait til July for blood tests. (B12 & calcium which are low). These blasted hormones have played havoc with my life on every level. I have managed to work one day a week again, I can go to the shop on my own now, & I can do some housework again. but the 'recovery' is so torturously slow from the totally life-destroying symptoms I've suffered. Sorry to moan...just having a horrible blip today sad

    Hi Brimbo67,

    Hang in there, dont despair.  Im going through it too.  Anxiety is day about for me, feeling it now, so in desperation just drunk a glass or unsweetened almong milk, yuk, hoping that the high potassium in it will make me feel better!  I have just found a brilliant site (im sure most of us know) but its indepth and explains a lot what to eat and what to take in terms of a healthy remedy.  Its The Institute for optinum nutrition, if you type that in on search it should come up, really helpful.  Hope that helps x

    O you poor soul,

    You ARE suffering. ! We're all really individual with this Hun, but I guess the decision we all make is about " quality of life" ....sadly, the truth is, this CAN go on for you can tough it out in the hope you find an alternative supplement and it goes off quickly, I hear exercise helps....or take an informed look at HRT medication and choose what's right in this awful phase of our lives for you...? 

    personally, HRT was my saviour......just afforded my poor

    body a chance to get used to Menopause gradually, instead of being " thrown off a cliff" hormonally speaking, having skipped the peri stage..I quickly had no sweats,  moods, joint aches or anxieties...

    i'm im my HRT for 4 years and ok.....truly.

    get more help honey...we don't need to feel like this anymore.ūüíē

    Your telling me. I heard that vitb12 and other vit bs can cause a lot of anxieties in people. I have had my share of anxieties and depression and nerves 

    I am going to talk to my thyroid doctor about checking my adrenal and pitutary glands to see how they are doing 

    Have had a cold all weekend just feel worn out and not myself today

      You are not alone. I have been weepy, anxious, nauseous, exhausted. My relationship with my husband has been stretched to its limits. It's so good to have a site like this where you can see that others are in the same boat. Hang on in there!

    Hi Brimbo, I was thinking about you today (because I remember your first post) and wondered if you (or anyone) was still feeling as weird as I do sometimes! Do you still get the dazed, unreal feelings? Sometimes I feel so flat, tired and detached and the brain fog has been bad recently.

    It's been about six months since I felt like my life fell apart with all this. I HAVE made improvements with the depression and anxiety but it seems to hit me in unexpected waves and in between times I'm still not quite the old me. My digestive issues have improved a bit but are still not right - still have pain under the ribs and heartburn nearly every day. This still worries me, even though I've had every scan and blood test imaginable.

    It's the mental stuff I find hard as well though - I just can't seem to get my joie de vivre back and the doom and gloom feelings never seem far enough away. I used to be so glad to be alive, full of drive and ideas for life.

    We must just keep holding on and hope and pray for better, happier, more carefree days ahead. Sometimes it feels that life has been put on hold or at the least severely curtailed! But we are surviving this and doing our best to get through each day which is no mean feat  and an achievement in itself. Life will be all the more brighter when the sun shines again.

    Hold on. Big hugs.
