crazy in ny

Greetings ladies, wanted to introduce myself. 52 yr brand new Grammie. wife, mother of three, nurse working in hospital. Born again Christian & going out of my mind with menopause symtoms.
have had GAD most of my adult life, went out of control when I hit perimenopause though & have been taking AD since. I am in the midst of menopause right now, will go 6-7 months with no period & than it just comes out of no where. I continue to have leaky faucet, sleep disturbances, warm flashes, and a little anxiety trying to creep back in, just weird feelings & thoughts. SO I came back to this board for the camraderie

cant wait to meet some of you so we can swap horror stories

Re: crazy in ny

Hi crazy - I am crazy in CA LOL - guess both coasts get some of us nuts.

I guess I was lucky as I stopped having periods, and that was about it. Although I was rather young at 45 when it happened. Have seen the doc and nothing weird going on. I did have hot flashes and it definitely raised my anxiety level.

Unfortunately that last part hasn't gone away. I too have had GAD for a long time,. I did okay in my late 20s, all thru my 30s and my early 40s. But when I started going thru the change, it hit with a vengence. Bad part is most of my other symptoms have stopped but not the anxiety.

I find this interesting as my 1st anxiety issues cropped up when I hit maturity in my mid teens. Lasted thru my early to mid 20's. So I think it clearly has some relation to hormones (or lack thereof) Not to say I didn't have any anxiety issues in the middle, but not nearly as bad.

OH SIGH - men should have to put up with this LOL
