I am so depressed and grouchy. I am using Vivelle .1, progesterone cream, and testosterone cream. Physically, I feel great but emotionally I am a mess. I cry over everything, or nothing, I want to quit my job, sell my house.... decisions I have no business making in my state but I am just dissatisfied in general. I cannot organize my thoughts, which just frustrates me that much more. I used to be a big time reader and now I cannot even get through a magazine article.

I am on antidepressants and a multi vitamin. I am exercising daily.

I have an appointment with a menopausal medicine dr in February (takes over 6 mos to get in )I don't know what else to do

Do you have a compounding pharmacist you could talk with in the meantime? They are a wealth of knowlege. If so, I'd tell him/her everything you are feeling, and everything you use and take, and see what they say..

I have gotten alot more out of my pharmacist than my doc...

Just a thought..

Good Luck!

Oh, I know how you feel. I did the same thing. It was an awful feeling. I even turned against my house that I have been in for 2 years and absolutely love (in the country) and decided that I wanted to sell and move back to the city. It seems like my hormones were pretty balanced but I haven't had them checked (doctor doesn't believe in it, supposed to go by your symptoms) but my family doctor put me on a low dose of Paxil and within a week I started feeling better. You say you are on a antidepressant but maybe it isn't the right one for you. Good luck. Hope you get to the bottom of it.

My heart goes out to you. I am feeling the same way. I always feel tired and I am unable to sleep. I need to see a doctor right away. Keep in touch and let me know how you are doing.

I understand and have been through some emotional challenges in the last six weeks that make me question everything. I am still working through the different meds. I too had to wait for an appt with a "specialist" and here are a few things that got me in faster. I asked if there was a cancellation list and put my name on that. The other thing I did, with their permission, was call every few days to see if there was an earlier appt. Even though I was on the list, I kept calling and got to see him within 10 days. Someone else told me if your dr makes the request they might get you in quicker too. My body is just finally relaxing, it was on high alert with extreme anxiety for so long. I am starting to get some emotional relief but not fully. The dr put me on a high estrogen and did tons of tests. When i go back next week I will learn what the tests say and review my symptoms with him again. Hang in there, it is torture, I know I have been doing it for six weeks. The other thing, is my friends and family are watching me reappear and helping me understand that I am getting better. When you live it 24/7 it is hard to determine that. Keep positive, even though that sometimes feels impossible. Shari
