In addition to seeing your doctor...I'd suggest that you UNLOAD extra burdens from your daily list of to-do's.

Un-join anything that's not necessary.
Learn to say no.
Put family first, everyone else can take a number.

I think today's woman loads herself down with way too much...or allows herself to be loaded down.
Then along comes peri-menopause and menopause....the whole house of cards comes tumbling down. Something has to give.

I'm 64...been there, done that.

So all I'm saying is...analyze your schedule. Re-think priorities.

Learn this wonderful phrase and let it become your mantra:

"Oh, I'd really love to, but I just can't."

Period.

They ask: "Well why is that?"

You say: "Oh I'd really love to say, but I just can't."

Re-analyzing and adjusting your daily schedule to help you get through this hard time is just as important as anything the doctor can prescribe (which I'm not poo-pooing).

Maybe there was a spam post that bumped it up and then the spam was removed but it stayed bumped? Just a guess.

That was my thought, too.

Well, I'll say this....even if the original poster is long gone and inactive here at KH, my advice is timeless. Good for any sister suffering from superwomanitis and feeling like she's unraveling, one stitch at a time.

I also believe a piece of spam slipped into 13 threads in one fell swoop probably brought the old thread to the surface.

The thread was worth reading simply because your comment re: "family first, the rest can take a number" is priceless!
