I am so glad I found this group! I have never had any issues with worry or anxiety of any kind until I was 41. I had my first panic attack and had NO idea what was going on. Well, I found out perimenopause is going on and it sucks! I have the worst problem the week before my period which starts every 21 days or so. I have very few days in the month anymore when I feel good. Whenever I feel an attack gearing up, I come online to find other sufferers to feel not so alone. I always feel better when I find others and realize I'm probably not going to die this time.
Thank you all for sharing your stories and making me laugh and letting me know I'm not alone. I still don't know if I'll make it through to full menopause though. I hate this! I'd be interested to know if anyone here has tried a hysterectomy or knows if anyone felt better after one.
