So I'm 40 with 3 kids under 7 . The last year or so I've been really anxious , anger easily , panic over stupid things , I'm bloated , my hair on my head looks like pubes, I'm tierd to the point of exhaustion , my muscles feel heavy , I'm emotional , I cannot sleep . My periods have become so heavy that I have to avoid some outings because I have to change every half hour. I think I've stumbled across what is wrong and I think it's the dreaded perimenopause !! I actually was being to think something was seriously wrong . My boobs sometimes feel like I've been kicked in the chest by an angry donkey ... I'm in bed today with muscle spasms .... Last week I had a tempreture and body aches .....
Does anyone else have this ? I don't feel like I have an illness because everything is so random and seperate from each other , but the more I research the more it points to perimenopause . Isn't it fun being a woman .
I'm grateful for my body and how it pulled me through three pregnancys and how it continues to battle on but I'm joining the dots and they seem to be pointing to perimenopause .
What do you older mums do to cope with this ? Do you take any supplements ? Would be grateful for any advice . 🌺
