    Hi Jaqueline, I have suffered from anxiety my entire life and perimenopause shot it through the roof. I read that the feeling you're describing is caused by the dissociation that is caused by anxiety....? It's the weirdest feeling...like my mind is floating above my body everything is surreal and dream like.

    Yes! So weird isn't it! I get it even with No anxiety. It's such a disturbing feeling. I try to look past it. I describe it as my perception being off somehow. Is it worse for you when up and moving around? When I'm sitting down it seems to be better. I took progestrone cream for one cycle and it actually went away for a few months. I came off so hormones could clear my system so I could retest...it came back. I also get weird symptoms in the eyes. And they get dry. We'll see what happens when my test results come back.

    Hi, certainly! I think I mentioned it here sometime before. I feel as if I am in a glass jar. I see everything around me but feels like I can't hear, understand or touch what's going on around... disassociated! Very uncomfortable place to be... sad

    I get the dry eyes and mouth so use artificial tears and synthetic saliva to alleviate the problem. XXX

      Looking back at things now, I believe I've been menopausing for around 7 years or so. I only really put 2 and 2 together in December last year, when the final hormone crash came and so did so many other obvious symptoms, that I realised what was going on. It was so extreme that my dr put me on HRT and vallium to help me through it. He would do anything to help me so I am blessed to have a dr like him on my side. Heres hoping this wont go on much longer. XXX
