Re: Please Say Im Not Alone

YOU ARE NOT ALONE PEGGY I think we all agree that the feelings you are having are the norm for this crap...anxiety is probably the biggest issue I have seen on these boards for menopause. I suffer from it to the point of being completely housebound for many days at a time. The exhaustion is overwhelming, and the crying well.....outta control at times. I am on valium for the anxiety and it does help usually, prozac for anxiety as well, I have a prescrption sitting here filled for estrogen and progesterone...also to afraid to take them :\ Hang in there, no choice right.. been told this eventually ends in a fairly happy ending, we will see.
Take care, Jen

Re: Please Say Im Not Alone

You are not alone!! This is such a crazy time in our lives and by the way, I am not having fun with it!! I feel so out of sorts and anxious, I think that I may get one good week a month. If I am lucky.
I am also afraid of hormones, but I am told they do help you to feel normal again.
Take some time for yourself and remember to breath.. I truly believe that is the best we can do!

Re: Please Say Im Not Alone

You are definitely not alone. I cry, have severe anxiety, aches, pains, headaches, hot flashes. It is so not fun. My doctor just tells me that this too shall pass. I wish it would hurry up. I am 49 and this has been going on for 2 years now. I take lorazepam for anxiety but it is not helping very much any more. But you are definitely not alone. Hope you get through this okay. Hope we all do.

Re: Please Say Im Not Alone

Have no idea why you are "scared" to take the hormones! They are great for most people. Did you ever take birth control pills? Same thing. Please try it. It really can help. I've been on HRT for almost 9 years and there is no way I would stop taking it.

Hi Titchou, I am going to try my hormone pills, but I am wondering what you are on, she gave me Estradiol 0.5 MG and Provera 10MG. I am supposed to take the Estradiol daily and the Provera for 10 to 15 dys a month on the 15th day of my cycle. Is this similar at all to what you take?

Re: Please Say Im Not Alone

I'm on Activella 1/.05. It's a combo pill (both drugs in all the pills) and you take 1 daily....every day.
