Menopause board

I feel the same way today! I am on prozac also and xanax. I just don't want to do anything at all cause I feel like I am in a fog all the time. I don't want to clean, go to the grocery, go anywhere for that matter, I can't concentrate enough to even read a book. I am up and down all night using the bathroom or feeling hot. I haven't had any test for meno I am just guessing thats what it is because I am 50 and I don't have any periods. The thing about that though is I had a ablation last January to stop heavy periods and it stopped my monthly all together so I don't know if I am not having periods because of the procedure or menopause. So yes I do feel like you do and what are we going to do and when will it end?
I understan completely how you feel. I am 35 and just went through a hysterectomy and 1 ovary removed. I take prozac and xanax, though hope to soon be able to wean off of the xanax. I am 10 weeks post op and have been experiencing very bad mood swings, inability to sleep some days and other days I could sleep all day if you let me. I also have anxiety and depression which started at the age of 9, though I have never experienced any kind of the moodiness and tiredness I have experienced since my operation. I actually admitted myself into the phsyc ward last week because I just did not want to deal with life anymore. I have never been so down in my life, and the worst part is that no one around me understands. I will keep you in my prayers.
I'm 36 and had a hysterectomy (removal of ovaries as well) about 7 mos ago. I'm on hormones but trying to find the right balance. I've had all of the symptoms - night sweats so bad it feels like you've wet the bed, hot flashes, STILL HOT ALL THE TIME (like when I was pregnant). I've gained 21 lbs and I'm a physical and emotional mess. All with a 5-year-old at home. I feel fatigued a lot of the time, have shortness of breath. I take Effexor XR 75 mg, Trazodone 100 mg (for sleep) and xanax .5 mg as needed (but I need more!). I don't know if this will help anyone. I do find the trazodone for sleep EXTREMELY helpful. If I take this at bedtime I can sleep 9 hours.
