I will be 43 tomorrow sigh
I have been in Peri since I turned 40!
As for the Hot flashes I get to where I get burning hot for like five or ten minutes and don't know if these are indeed Hot Flashes.
My periods are coming two a month lasting all of two days at best then they clear out and a week later I get brown dishcharge. Seems like it's something every day.
As for Aniexty I went on Lexapro last year and have had great success with it. I started real slow at 2.5 mil and worked up to 20 a day and feel great as far as depression/aniexty.
I too feel like my body is giving out and get so upset. In my mind I still feel 25 or 30 but then I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror and ask "who is that person"?
The Lexapro has really helped me with energy. It made me tired for a while but now I feel much more motivated.
I am plauqued by facial fuzz, brown spots and my hair is a mess!!!!
I have neighbors who are going through full blown menopause they are in their early 50's and say the body goes next (not that it hasn't already), the features take on a more manly appearance LOVELY!!!!!
