Is this Menopause?

Posted by @nativefloridian in Women's Health, Oct 17, 2011

I'm 51 years old and find myself having bouts of depression again. I have hot flashes sometimes during the day. Occasionally I get a bad headache and I am less tolerant and patient with my husband than ever before. Menses still occurs and I'm wondering how much longer I must ride this roller coaster. Anyone been through it lately?

I'm having "anger" issues. Everything ticks me off. Hopefully someone can let us know the average span for the different symptoms. I hate the thought of this lasting for years! I wake up at night hot, throw off the covers, then get cold a little while later. This can go on for a couple hours.

yikes! my hot flashes are fairly short ones and it is usually over before I realize i'm having one! i also think it could just be me drinking something hot that causes me to feel this way. i don't get them at night, i did a few years ago but not now. weird, huh? Now, I just get ticked off if I have to work on a website to do homework and the stupid support people don't do their jobs and make the website work! I also get ticked off if my husband slams the doors at 5 am because the dog woke him up. He thinks that if he can't sleep, no one else in the house should be able to either. He is such a teenager sometimes and I already have 2 teens, I didn't get married to have a 3rd one. Geeez! Sometimes I just think i want to buy a little condo and go live there in peace. Menopause, bring it on! It is nothing compared to dealing with a yo-yo of a spouse. I've over it. Sometimes I hate the weekends bedcause he doesn't have to go to work!

Feeling better since I stopped a medication I was taking. Was ignoring side effects. I enjoy my quiet time since my kids are grown. The only problem is I get lazy during that time and just don't move much. I was married years ago and am now in a long term relationship. Both men made normal noise around the house any time I was taking a nap, but of course, us women are more considerate and are quiet when they nap!! It must be a man thing.
