We all struggle with worry, fear, and anxiety. Maybe it's a new job, maybe a new relationship, maybe your kids are giving you fits, maybe you're feeling guilty about putting dad in a home. Whatever it is that has you up at night, let us help. I implore all members to post if you need help and to comment on posts with words of encouragement, empathy and understanding.
When I met my darling hubby 30 years ago, I thought his scatterbrainedness was adorable. This "quirk" fed right into my need to be needed. Reminding him of dates, appointments, important information was kind of fun at first and made me feel important in his life. Well, it only took until the first kid was born for me to grow tired of it. Now, after all these years of marriage, it makes me bat-shit crazy. What habit does your significant other have that you used to think was endearing but is a struggle not to strangle them about now?
When I started perimenopause I did my share of reading about what to expect in this journey through menopause. I saw endless lists of symptoms, all containing things like hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings etc. But what I didn't see was things like losing the hair in my eyebrows, super crazy dry skin, memory issues and others things of that ilk. What strange symptoms have you experienced that you attribute to menopause that you had no idea was going to happen?
