I never thought it would be like this. Everyone always talks about hot flashes, sleepless nights & drying up. I never have had a hot flash, but don't consider me lucky. The anxiety is horrible of perimenopause. So tired of heart pounding, racing heart, breathlessness, chest pain and trying to remind myself that all the reports say healthy heart. Thankgoodness, but still.... So tired of being over 56 and constantly buying tampons & pads. I thought it was getting old having regular periods, but now I just continually bleed. My gyno dr started me on bio identical HRT cream months ago & I am sick of that too. They keep increasing the percent to relieve the symptoms, but its like my body gets used to them and it all starts up again. Bleeding for 28 days straight, a short break and now back at it again. YUCK. Also, extreme headaches, awful TMJ symptoms, dizzy, mostly from clenching my jaw or grinding my teeth from the stress of it all. I see no end to all this madness.
No one understands or seems to care either. I just want to feel normal again.
