Uterus, Ovaries, Menstruation...
Yeah that means you, if you do not want to read about any of this go now.
*I am pre-empting this with a note that says I am calling my gynocologist Wednesday morning*
One of my biggest female resources, my Mother-- is gone, and with each day that passes, I am finding myslef sort of "lost". My Mother-in-law, seems to empathize with my current state, and recalls her peri-menapause, and subsequent menapause. She says she can recall these symptoms.
I will be turning 36 on the 13th. This is young. This is not old. However I must say this.
I think I have struck the beginnings of perimenapause, or premenapause.
I also think it started in December. I have been trying to "ignore" it. But frankly this last period, well it about killed me.
My Mother sufferred long and hard with menapause, at least I think she did. At the time my Sister and I thought she was insane. Looking back with my current state, I think it may have been early menapause. I also come from a family where fibroid tumors, endometriosis, and female problems run the continuum from bad to worse.
It does seem odd to me, that I am having 2 periods a month, some months, feelings of anxiety (which is not the norm). Waking at night, so hot and so naseated I feel like I am going to vomit. Achey joints, mood swings.
Crap, 36, and perimenapause.
I had an appointment this past month with my gynocologist, and missed it, dues to absentmindedness(yet another symptom). So I know, I need to make another appointment.
However I really want to know, if anyone around my age, or anyone older can relate. Because I am starting to feel like a nut bucket.
36, and perimenapause, for Lands sake.
