Back in August, I found out I had transitioned to post-menopausal but I am noticing some changes in my personality that I am wondering if they are related to this new phase of life.
This has been my first case of a really bad cold or flu since I found out. When I was peri-menopausal, I tended to just stay to myself and want to be left alone, not engaging in conversation more than the minimal responses whenever I felt sick.
This time around, I am what my husband calls cranky and irritable. I also have been getting short tempered and impatient over silly things like a page on the internet taking too long to load, the water in the kitchen sink not getting hot fast enough, and so on.
Is this normal or do I need to seek serious mental health attention?
