new to forums & menopause & scared
I am 45 in the throws of perimenopause (for two years now!) and scared to death, because of a stroke I had 5 years ago I have to get through this thing with no hormonal help,I realize many go through this with no drugs, but I get so wildly crazy at times I'm really very scared.
My family doc wrote me a script for Zoloft but this offended me and due to certain side effects I won't take it.
My hubby even said no on the zoloft, it wasn't worth the side effects, he'd put up with the mood swings! My daughter calls me the mom drama queen, I get so dramatic over things, so anxious & upset. To think I have to live like this for several more years, I wonder can I? Will my marriage survive it? It's so scary. My mom is no help at all! I have no friends going through this either.
Does every woman have to travel this road alone? Why can't men understand it? My hubby says if you know it's hormones, just get over it!
This is all so depressing.
