Does anyone else get days when they feel both physically and mentally ill??!!
Haven't been on the board for a while as have just been to Spain for a week's holiday. This morning I woke up and thought "oh no, it's gonna be one of THOSE days again", days when I feel really very poorly, both physically and mentally, for no apparent reason. All I can do is look after myself well on these days, and fortunately my husband is understanding.
I have been taking the generic version of prozac (fluoxetine) for 3 weeks while weaning off my old anti-depressants, which just stopped working in the menopause - anxiety been bad in the meno. I have felt a bit better in some ways with this, but was told after 2 weeks I would feel a big change - haven't yet! Maybe they need longer.
Said to my husband, and a close friend who rang me this morning, that I can't believe the way I've been since in the menopause. Only for the fact my doc has done blood tests and I know I'm not ill (well, suppose I am really because the hormones are poweful chemicals and they are all going bonkers!), but I'm not ill in the way most people interpret it. How can these harsh little chemicals make you feel so absolutely lousy, and more importantly, I wonder how long it goes on for? (mine has been about 18 months now).
Anyone can reply on any of the things I've mentioned above.
Much love to you all.
