Do you feel like you are Crazy?
I am 45 years old. I have always been an upbeat person.
Then about two years ago I started having panic attacks, then I started having emotional episodes and the doctor said well this is probably just perimenopause. Well here I am at 45 years old and I feel like someone made me a hollow shell of a person. I cry over everything. I feel so desolate and alone at times, even though I am blessed with four amazing beautiful children. The smallest little bump in life just throws me off and I feel like the world has come to an end. So two weeks ago the doctor gave me Valium to take instead of Xanax and I felt a huge change. But that changed this past weekend. I have read this forum and I am experiencing other symptoms such as joint pain, breast tenderness, loss of sexual desire, then sometimes I have an amazing sex drive beyond my normal one.
Right now I just feel like so void, empty and it is just absolutely upsetting.
Does this sound like perimenopause? meonpause?
How long will this last?
Anyone have any suggestions on how to endure this terrible time?
