Hello ladies, I need some help again...I am turning 50 in two days and for the first time in my life I feel old. I know I should be grateful for being healthy and alive and having a wonderful husband and two great kids, 8 and 15. However, my emotional state a week or two before my period is hell. I am actually feeling hypersensative to everything. Now I am five days in to my period, which is getting lighter and shorter at least. But, i am weepy and sad and feeling nervous. One minute I want to go out the next I want to crawl into bed. I just joined a gym for yoga classes and light aerobics. I see a Psychiatrist and i am on Paxil and Nortriptyline for generalized anxiety disorder. Of course the Peri is making it worse. Just need to know how you ladies are coping and feeling. I feel isolated and very alone, I take Xanax when the anxiety gets really bad. I could use some support and I know I can find it here. Thank you
