I think from all I've heard and read it's best not to go the hormonal therapy route if you can avoid it. Yes, I didn't have much choice since my body was plunged into early menopause and my system was in shock.
So, I'm thinking that these night anxieties I've been experiencing and extreme tiredness as well as wooziness could be from actually going through menopause now and I didn't know it. Another friend of mine said she had similar experiences. It was kind of a relief to hear that. I wonder how long it takes to pass through that phase. I hate it.
Yeah, I may check in here now and then. I have one month off from work so I'll have a bit of time now. Though I have a lot of stuff to catch up on!
All the best to you.
