Yeah ladies, this is the perimenopause. That morning anxiety rush, horrible! I had to take Prozac eventually, helped alot, but still get that anxiety rush in the morning, not severe like it was before, much better wtih Prozac, but the docs told me that was perimenopause. Mine would come at around 5 in the morning,hated it. sometimes later in the morning. So wonder are ancestors were in institutions when they were going thru peri and menopause!
