    Hi TropVon, 

    its good to vent your feelings time to time.

    after a good sleep, plan out your diet chart - eat within 3 hours gap, each meal having sufficient protein - cheese is good for you at this time

     keep sipping on plain water all day- stay hydrated

    plan out a breathing exercise to deal with anxiety - breath through the nose - 5 counts, keep for 5, exhale for 5 through mouth

    go for outside walks 

    keep busy

    take your vitamins

    make short term goals for anything that is left pending

    we are here for each other

    but you have to remember the basics

    lots of love

    Hi

    I feel exactly the same, I don't know where to turn. I'm off to a homeopath next week and I'm hoping it helps. I don't know about you but I feel like I went bed a strong, calm woman and woke up a wreck who has developed a health anxiety which eats up my days. Im taking all kinds of supplements for hormonal balance which were recommended to me by a nutritionist and I still have this cloud that hangs over me. Every time my boobs are a bit sore I go into meltdown thinking my estrogen level is too high. Awful state of mind and any advice on dealing with this type anxiety will be much appreciated. I'm 40 in a few months.

    Hi TropicalVon69

    Just read your post and I can really relate to how you feel,.

    Have you considered you may be depressed too ? don't want to add to your anxiety but it may be worth seeing you gp and talking about how you feel. You sound as though you are really not getting any joy in life at this time and it is an awful place to be. Main thing is, do not feel guilty about feeling like this and try to look after yourself, rest, eat when you can and talk to someone.  I hope you can get some relief soon, you can get through this so do not give up. 

    Talk on here when ever you need too, we all understand xx

      Hi

      Some days I'm on cloud nine, then the odd twinge just starts my health anxiety off. I had a word with my gp and she said I was too young for anything like perimenopause but my mother was on hrt by the time she was 45 and had quite a few years of hormonal problems.

      Don't you just hate the way doctors dismiss the menopause or peri just because we aren't anywhere near our 50s. I find it insulting. My mum was 42 when she started with it. I started with vague symptoms around 34, I'm 40 now and most of the time I feel dreadful. I often think as we're only born with so many eggs surely the earlier we start our periods the earlier we'll hit menopause. I was 10 when I started, my mum was 12 so this correlates to me. Hope everyone feels better soon x

      True, my mother started at 11 and I was 12. Straight away the night sweats, hip ache, moods, painful boobs, etc etc were put down to anxiety which I was offered medication. That's not what I want so wel see what happens.

      I feel the same way. I know the changes that has taken place in my body and I know how I feel from day to day and it just makes me angry for a doc to blow us off. I'm so tired of hearing im too young or I'm just anxious or I maybe depressed. Not listening and acting accordingly to me as a patient will make me depressed. They wouldn't like it one bit if they had to walk around knowing that something is wrong with their body and being told that it's not happening or can't be happening. Peri/Meno is not a light subject. Our hormones are essential parts of our bodies function even though it is a natural transition. When they are out of whack we feel horrible and it really alters our quality of life. If you have already altered your diet, added exercise and coping techniques and still not getting relief then a doc should be willing to explore HRT options with you. If you have no health issues that will not allow you to take HRT then it should be your decision to try and find what's right for you. Age has nothing to do with you needing to feel better. I'm sorry to vent in that way. I come up against the same things with docs because of my age and just really makes me angry. And I'm also overly emotional today. LOL

      I got my first bleed at 9 and it went away for a year and started when I was 10. I have been having the subtle symptoms since I was 35. As soon as I told the doc about my anxiety that came out of nowhere, I was told it was common in women my age and to see a psych along with a script for Ativan. No mention of peri or anything hormone related.

      It's an awful time, you seem to lose who you are. If it's not bad enough we start periods as children, go through the emotional and physical trauma of having children and just when you thought things were normal perimenopause and menopause creep up. Men don't know they're born!!!

    trop, im sure you must have got it sorted out in your head about various options

    hows your sugar count ? low sugar makes many get many symtpoms and it wont show on the readings so diet is important

    anti depressants take at least two weeks to kick in

    if you can manage without them its better because they make you addicted and you have learn to wean off them later but its your choice- breathing exercises and yoga are better for controlling moods and anxiety

    hope you are better

      Everyone is different, I'm sure we would all like to go through this nightmare without the aid of medication but sometimes it doesn't work like that. I recall my mother in her early forties and she initially got depressed and it turned into anger to the point where my dad told her to go to the doctors because it was becoming hard to function as a family. She went and they put her on hrt and she was 44/45. I'm 40 in a few months and even though the go said all my symptoms were anxiety related, I know I am in peri.
