How do you deal with the emotional, mental, self-image pieces of menopause?

By October 23, 2011 - 9:38am

In spite of doing everything I can do try to be my best, I am overwhelmed with things that seem out of my control, i.e. hot flashes that have made me so sick I have lost my life. I have a great doctor and I think we are finding answers, but my body is not the same and I hate myself. And in the middle of all this, the media, the culture, all make jokes about menopause (and PMS, too) as though it is funny. And friends who are not in the same situation, acting as though as if I just had a better attitude things would be good. When are you sick and have no sleep for over two years it is hard to have a good attitude. And I am used to being a really active, social, productive person. I feel as though I have lost my life.

I am responding to my own question. I had hoped this board would have people reading and responding---and apparently not often. If someone could send me to a group or a support group who would actually respond in real time, I would totally appreciate it. I am losing my life, and I need other women. Please help me.

We're a group devoted to the education and support of something that will happen naturally to all of us at some stage: menopause. No longer called things like "the change" in quiet female-only groups; menopause is a normal stage of life that signals one part of life leaving, and a potentially fantastic one marching in! Some of us will need help, support and advice during this time, and some of us have lots of it to give. Light-hearted or troubled, we can swap experiences and stories, post questions and worries - all within a compassionate community that offers professional resources. Any woman, from 18 to 80, can benefit from membership! Let the fun and friendships begin...
