I have experienced anxiety/depression for the last 3 years.  However, the anxiety may be persistent and last all day for 3 or more weeks, then it will be completely gone for another time period, then come back, etc.  I am a 42 year old female and wonder if this is due to perimenopause?  It sometimes corresponds to my menstrual cycle, somtimes does not.  I am taking hormones to help this, but still experience it.  Just wondering if this was a normal pattern for anxiety.  Thanks!

karlie,

It is normal to have ups and downs in the cycle of anxiety.  If you red through the threads you will find many great topics and how members experience the highs and lows.

Also others have posted re hormones and the part they play in anxiety.

I am sure you will hear from some that have the same issues as you do.

Take care

Kitt

Hi Karlie,

I think your hormones can affect your anxiety. My anxiety is worse before and during my period. And sometimes even after. Daily stress (even small things) can change your anxiety level as well.
