Here we go again

For those of you who are just beginning this wonderful process, here we can narrow down the symptoms and ask questions like "am I starting perimenopause?"

Here we go again

Another month, another pms attack :help: I am feeling just the inkling of depression, fatigue, slight bloating beginning to happen. I woke up this morning with sweat all over me. I had to take a nap yesterday and when I woke up - I was disoriented. I have been working out a lot at curves and at home (big event coming up - need to lose weight anyway)....but I only started 2 weeks ago. I was hoping it would be in time to help with pms this month but so far - no.

I really resent the mood swings most of all, I think. They interfere with every relationship, work, home, any thing at all that I was working on has to pretty much come to a screeching halt b/c I get in such a dark mood. I purposely stay away from people b/c in the past I have annoyed them or gotten hurt myself by being overly sensitive. So I sort of isolate myself :shades: for one week a month. I'm 51 yrs old. It has gotten much worse in the last year or so.

I can't tolerate the side effects of antidepressants, so that's why I'm not on one. I get really violently sick. I gave up years ago trying to find one that wouldn't shake up my CNS (central nervous system) so much. I just try to ride this out like a bad hurricane.

Thankfully, you are all here. I come here every month and vent and cry. I don't know what I would do w/o you. Thank you Minnie!! :bighug:

We all need something like this during those times! Glad to see you can find your way back, April!! :) I fear we've lost many a member because it's the memory, not the moods that causes the problem! :)
