Oh how I can sympathise with you,
I too am finding it difficult, have been going through the menopause now for 4yrs now.
Recently, I had health checks carried out, to see if there could be any other causes, as to why I was feeling so bad!
Fortunately all was ok!
I'm on Evorel patches, only started using them last week.
I wasn't coping phyisically or mentally doing my job, so my doctor suggested I take some time out from work, until I feel I can cope again.
Trying to be positive about the whole thing, but it's not easy for any of us here.
Best of luck,
