Why do I feel like I'm losing my mind in menopause? I stopped my period six years ago!

Posted , 4 users are following.

I was going ok. Now I have itchy crawly scalp, no appetite, general feelings of unease, and doom and gloom throughout the day. Anxiety is ridiculous, I worry about my health, which is unhealthy! I worry about my loved ones dying. Oh I also have had a headache for days. It's getting better. I just feel so weak and pathetic.

    Hi Juanita

    i'm there with you..it's horrible not being able to enjoy anything anymore just consumed by fear that something awful  will happen all the time!!! 

    my children had it with me..My grand daughter was born 5 weeks ago and i'm worrying everytime she is crying!!! 

    I do suffer horrible headaches also, i should be used by now but everytime it comes on i start stressing thinking something bad is going to happen..

     My husband is fed up with me i don't feel talking to anyone anymore just the need to be left alonesmile

    for me usually gets worst the week before my period which is next week! God help mesmile

    hope you feel better xxxx

    Hi Juanita I am 9 years post meno and had a really bad time of it just a few months ago with extreme anxiety and the pain of vaginal atrophy along with gastritis issues and a UTI that wouldn't quit, now I am just dealing with hot flushes and cold flushes but that I can handle ....now I seem to be on the other side of it so far...things seem to be getting better I had been great for quite some time and all this flared up on me and I was floored as I thought I was finally on the down side of things ..just hold on it does eventually wind down and I have heard we do start to feel normal again.
