Hi! I'm new also. I'm 45 and know what you are feeling. Been dealing with my issues for a few years now. (and I have issues let me tell you). My cycles were crazy short also until I started on bio-identical hormone therapy. I use a cream estrogen and most importantly progesterone. That one helps me feel a lot better and lengthens my cycles to 28 days. Give or take a day here or there. I still have some varying issues but for the most part feel pretty good not perfect though, but who does. It's an art getting things back to an acceptable place but it can be done to a pretty good degree. I've gained weight over time so now I'm trying to cut back on my carbs and need to start exercising soon. I'm not liking my weight right now. My mood is a little low at times but I can handle it. Not depressed though. I have had that and its not fun. I have learned for me to take a day at a time because things vary at this age. I have been very ill in the near past so for me I appreciate where I'm at now. But it took time for me to come to terms with the things that are changing. But I'm still getting there. Hope this helps some. I'll keep checking back. Best wishes!
