What’s your most difficult symptom to deal with?


  • Just trying to discover what the most challenging symptoms are that you are handling (or not!) at the moment...?



  • Night sweats 


  • @Angeline Davies the lack of sleep has become all encompassing and debilitating.  I'm really struggling to cope and becoming more emotional and frustrated. I just want me back


  • @Claire Knight im right there with you, how awful is this? I just feel out of control do you? Helen 


  • @Helen Pallett@Angeline Davies I hate me atm. I hate the hot sweats & even worse, my mood. I am literally ready to rip someone's head off. I'm struggling so much with my mood swings & being constantly tired coz I can't sleep even though I'm exhausted. I never signed up for this, periods were bad, but this........ what's worse is my husband & daughter seem to delight in winding me up & then watching me fly off the handle at the slightest little thing.  Where did 'I' go? I hope 'I' comes back coz this version of me is going to end up getting divorced or arrested or both. I'm struggling so much.

    ive been put on hrt for just over a month now & I swear it's made me psychotic,  neurotic, & I just don't know how to cope.  When will these feelings go away?
