Hi! Im new on here also. Ive been thru those horrible night sweats but only get them occasionally now. I have trouble sleeping, anxiety/stress and the overall feeling of just not being myself anymore...just want to be back to my old self again. (
Hi Smiling Eyes!
And to the other 'newbies' who also responded to you. Welcome to the boards! You definitely came to the right place. At 46 I've been in peri for several years now and when I found this forum I was so relieved. So much was going on with me -- the night sweats, insomnia, anxiety, etc., etc. -- I just didn't know what to think. When I found these boards and started reading that others were going thru exactly the same thing I felt so much better. Sometimes I got good suggestions for solutions but even when I didn't I at least knew I wasn't alone and wasn't crazy! This peri really stinks most of the time -- and can be downright scary sometimes. I agree with you -- the anxiety is awful! -- as well as the insomnia. And the long list of other symptoms are no fun either. But reading these posts almost always does make me feel a little more able to deal with it. I hope it works for you, too. So good luck and hang in there with the rest of us! Take care. Diane
