Menopause is killing me Menopause is killing me

Menopause is killing me

I am SO TIRED of it. I'm on the Vivelle patch AND Femring (on the highest doses) and I get NO RELIEF at all.

I go from comfortable to completely overheated in one second. I'm weak, tired, grumpy, forgetful, aggravated, can't sleep, gaining weight - you name it, I got it.

I HATE this. I suffered with my periods from the very first day I started. They were horrible. I suffered with terrible Endo for years and years. I've lived with using bath towels for pads and pain that not even Vicodin could kill. And now, when I think that is finally over and I will have relief - NO, now it's stupid menopause.

I don't know if I really much care to live anymore.

Re: Menopause is killing me

Hey syster, I'm so sorry you're dealing with this, it sucks I know. You've been through so much already, so of course it is ok for you to be angry at this. While you certainly can and should be angry, please try to remind yourself that the menopause is temporary and keep a shred of hope that soon you will really be pain and symptom free. In the meantime, I would call the Dr ASAP to let him know how this is making you feel, there's got to be something that can be tried.
Peace be with you

Please call your dr, no matter how you feel right now. Life is worth living. It may take some time to balance everything out. Maybe you can find a new dr that specializes in this area. My prayers and thoughts are with you and I'm sending you (((HUGS))) keep us posted on your progress. Just remember your not alone, there are a lot of sisters here dealing with the same issues.
