This is just plain horrible, all of it. I'm 50 years old- as if the last four years were not hard enough- fatigue, achy joints, fibro, weight gain and no energy. I think this might be one of the hardest things yet - my hair texture and thickness is changing big time. My asset has always been my hair- thick, soft waves my entire life, (as probably many women). I think I am having major hormone crashes because the hair is breaking off, falling off and actually looking thin. The hot sweats don't help because I think it is drying it out further. My hair has gone from healthy, full and wavy to getting scraggly looking and thinner in just a matter of a few months. Just entered menopause this month because no period for last 12 months.
Ladies, this menopause is unbelieveable-- not only physically but mentally. It is bad enough to not feel good but now I have depression over the condition of the hair, as it drastically affects the way I look. I guess we end up letting go of everything we had- just so depressing. I should stop being so vain and think of those losing their hair totally with chemotherapy or other stuff. At least I have hair. Still...this menopause really strips your life.
