A horrible experience!!

At first I was not sure what it was - panic attacks, aching joints and sore muscles, fear of death and not seeing my family, dizziness, depressed, insomnia, weight gain, fatigue, low energy level.

I would like to share my story with women who might be experiencing the same symptoms I have experienced with menopause. At first I was not sure what it was - panic attacks, aching joints and sore muscles, fear of death and not seeing my family, dizziness, depressed, insomnia, weight gain, fatigue, low energy level, plus more.

I never knew going through menopause would be this horrible. I went on hormone treatments, but that did not work well for me. Every time I would start hormone treatments, I would feel really good, but after a month or so, my menstrual cycle would start up again.

It has been a horrible experience, and I feel for all women who have been, or are going through it. It is the worst time of my life. It's sad that there is not much that can be done to alleviate the symptoms, except hormone treatments. All I can do is pray and hope that someday this will pass and I can live a normal, healthy life because it the worst thing women can go through.
