Menopause isn’t all hot flashes and grumpiness. I’m talking about the dangerous symptoms: Stress, Depression and Anxiety.
“High levels of stress, depression, and anxiety often plague women in menopause.” Well that’s just great. I get stressed, depressed, and anxious all by myself. I don’t need any help from my hormones. I already take anti-depressant and anti-anxiety medications. And now they don’t work anymore. Somebody, warn the neighbors. Maybe the folks in the white coats too.
“You should strive to reduce your stress levels by relaxing and using meditation techniques”. Ya think?? I have very high levels of stress and anxiousness. I don’t remember what relaxing is anymore, and probably being relaxed would only happen if I had a lobotomy first.
In fact, flying over the cuckoo’s nest seems like a vacation package to me now….
