I feel like I'm going crazy

lorddaxJune 2, 2014

I'm 46, last year I had hot flashes, went to see doctor who said I was too young for peri menopause and as my periods are still normal not to worry.

Hot flashes now gone, periods still regular but sometimes short and sometimes long.

My mind though is horrible, I want to kill hubby, myself, bad drivers!
Sometimes I want to divorce him, run away, I cry lots, not always for any reason, I get angry sometimes, no reason.

Doc prescribed me zopiclone, they made me worse, really suicidal and confused, stopped taking them.

I just feel insane, prob about 25 days of every month I am so angry, upset, moody, weird and no one gets it, the doc still thinks I'm too young for hormone Meds, I have zero interest in sex too, all I want to do is eat junk food and buy stuff online, then i get depressed, I'm getting fat round the tummy, butt and thighs, I wont even wear shorts at the moment, I hate this, how long will it last, there's not even any help on the internet, it's a case of suck it up and get on with it, guess this is a vent then, how do you all get through it:(

Hello, I just wanted you to know you are not alone in all this madness. I too have been battling with severe symptoms of menopause for years now. I like you are at the end of my rope. I just want to feel "normal" again.

I was per-menopause in my 40's. Hot flashes then cold when they were over. The family would laugh as the sweatshirt went on and off!

I haven't had my period for a year now.....yay! I'm in my late 50's. But I have mood swings. Some days hubby can't do anything right!

Lorddax,
What you are going through sounds terrible. Hang in there, and keep thinking how it is not "you", it is your body.
Have you considered seeing a different doctor? I find they are highly variable in their knowledge and approach to these problems.
