Have a brilliant time ☺(Quote) Oh Sally.
Its always so hard when a relationship comes to an end. I can only imagine what you are going through and how you're feeling. There's nothing I can think of to say that will make you feel better.
I'm sorry that y…Hi Maryon,
I'll be fifty this year. After 14 years of asking, I have finally been allowed to try HRT patches, and put the first one on yesterday. Previously I couldn't even get a GP to have a discussion about HRT because I get migraines, and I …(Quote) Hi Caroline,
It’s nice to have you with us.
I’m sorry that you’re feeling so low. What’s really great is that you’ve recognised that you’re having trouble coping and you’re trying to get help.
I’ve had depression for n…https://www.facebook.com/1700506176913718/posts/2009645985999734/
Finally getting some recognition in parliament.

That’s annoying for you! Is it keeping you awake or interrupting your day to day activities? After five days, I guess I’d be inclined to run it past my GP, even if it’s just a te…Hi Mandy. I was a carer too, but out in the community. Hard work!
Like you too - can cry at the drop of a hat! At the tv, things the kids say, things that happen during the day! Like a leaky tap I have no control over! Memory loss, not so much…(Quote) Oh Dizbag! Isn’t it horrible? I’ve been where you are - I used to look like I’d just got out of the shower a dozen times a day. I felt so self conscious. Thankfully it’s confined to the night time now, but I remember exactly how it fe…Hi Nicki,
It’s very exciting to be able to pick your brains. So many questions, BUT, I’m going to go with just this...
I’m unable to take HRT due to migraines, and I’ve pretty much been left to my own devices to find “something” that works…(Quote) Hi Tracy.
Welcome to our forum, and for sharing your first post!
I had the same as you - a hysterectomy, but leaving the ovaries behind. I was told that this was because I was so young (32) and was to stop me from going int…(Quote) Well Lilyboo3 - now you’ve discovered that you’re not on your own, and we understand just how you feel! That in itself, for me, was the biggest relief. Knowing that I wasn’t going crazy, and that other women were feeling the same way …(Quote) Hi Lilyboo3. Welcome to our forum. Thanks for being brave enough to share your experience. You are NOT alone! And you are definitely not going crazy! Lots of women experience similar symptoms during the menopause, and it can be comple…(Quote) Hi Jayne. Happy New Year to you! Welcome to our forum.
Great news about the hot flushes! From memory, I seem to remember that some bleeding can occur in the first 4-6 months of starting HRT, so I’m guessing that it’s nothing to w…(Quote) Hi @DizziLady I know exactly what you mean! A sense of humour goes a long way to getting you through, and a supportive, if confused, husband…
