CaGirl2..I totally agree that this is a normal part of a woman's life. I just want to know about it and how to go through it without too much of a struggle. I feel like doctors brush you off and treat it like a "mental" condition rather than a phase of life.
I know many woman that have gone through perimenopause and menopause without a problem, I just am not one of them, unfortunately.
I am on my way to the bookstore to see if I can find a book or something to help me understand what is normal and what is abnormal so I know the difference. I also understand that each woman is different, so there is not going to be a "perfect" norm...
But there has to be someone out there that understands and can help us to understand too.
By reading this board, I see many,many woman that are confused and scared by the symptoms
