Is it the menopause or is it depression?
Here’s a question I am struggling to answer. Am I depressed or are these feelings another symptom of the menopause?
I have been going through the menopause for about 3 years now. I have tried HRT but didn’t get on with it. It made me very angry and aggressive so I decided to see if I could struggle through without medication. I am getting used to the night sweats and lack of sleep but just recently I have realised that I’m not happy and can’t find joy in anything that I used to love doing. I struggle through work and have no motivation to socialise. I feel like crying at the most inconvenient times and I simply don’t laugh any more.
I need to find a solution but I’m scared to go to the doctors as I feel to exhausted to start the process of working out what medication will work for me. Does anybody have any suggestions?
