I think I might be going through menopause
Hi All, It is difficult to know where to start. I am 47 and will be 48 in July and had a partial hysterectomy when I was 30. My best friend approached me letting me know that she has noticed my mood swings and that I have been abrupt when I speak to some people at times, she was sure I was not aware. She has also mentioned that I have been vague and very forgetful amongst other concerns. My boss came into my office to talk about my work performance. I overheard my boss speaking to her boss, she said that she thinks I have some mental health problems which is difficult for her to deal with. Once I was informed of these things about me, I thought it was best I look into why so I did some research and found a website regarding 34 symptoms of menopause. I read through all of the symptoms and found that I have 24 out of the 34 symptoms. I have been doing a lot more research on menopause to learn more about it and how I can help myself, I never thought that at my age I could be going through it. I will make an appointment with my GP on Monday for testing and treatment, I plan on starting to exercise, have less caffeine, sugar and hopefully found a group here that I can talk about my experiences.
