Where have I gone?
Good afternoon, I hope you are all having a lovely Saturday.
I have titled this discussion " Where Have I gone?". These are the words I hear during every consultation. "I'm not the person I once was." " I feel invisible".
As women are explaining how they are feeling, they wipe the tears away... thinking that they will never feel any different.
But when I explain this is what menopause can do to you; well the fluctuations and reduced hormones and that with the right advice, support and treatment you can feel so much better.. they often cry some more but with relief this time!
That desperate feeling of isolation, exhaustion and that empty feeling is so common in menopause but HRT can make a significant difference.
If you are feeling like this; you are not alone and please talk to those around you, your GP and also please write into us here.
