Hi folks - my little intro

Hi everyone. I've come on here as I've been feeling increasingly anxious, sad and isolated over the past year or so in particular, and I am struggling with bereavement along with perimenopausal problems among other things. I seem to have got myself into a rut in which I can't seem to trust people or make new friends anymore. I feel like everyone I meet their lives are just so different to mine and that they think I'm a freak! At least they would do if they knew what my life was like!

Thank you. I've been suffering increasingly from menorrhagia for the past 2 years and to check I wasn't imagining it I started using a moon cup recently. I discovered that I'm losing around 80ml+ in 4 days every month. I just feel so unwell i can't do much for a whole week every month. A day or two before I start bleeding I become really anxious and emotional and my mind is racing making me intense and over sensitive! It feels like invasion of the body snatchers! 😂

Oh I went through that my own self, I may be the only one that welcomed menopause 8 years ago! I'll take all the issues of that over a period any day! I had 2 good weeks when I had to deal with it. Hang in there, I believe better days are on the way!!! Love & Hugs!!!

Yes I have heard that menopause can come as a blessing after this! I would be very happy for my periods to stop right now! I don't have children which I feel very sad about at times. I suppose there is a small part of me that still hopes it might happen, but I've got to the point now where I need to prioritise my quality of life over what may or may not be left of my fertility! These periods really suck big time! 😉
