Menopause Depression- Why am I so sad?

Am I just a sensitive person?

As I came into full blown menopause, I was in a sad and bad mood more than often. At first I thought it was just learning of myself as a real sensitive person. But as I went through this “change of life” and discussing this with my doctor I found out that it had to do with my menopause.

The change of my emotional level was due to the change in my hormones. I was in depression with my menopause.Then I had to think of me not getting good sleep with these changes. I began to understand more why I would be so exhausted when I would wake up from my sleep. I was very irritable and anxious. I realized that it is hard to be positive and carry on with your daily task when your body is craving sleep and you are having these emotional roller coaster rides.

I needed a new attitude

I was relieved to know that after talking to my doctor, that it wasn’t just me! I began to look at middle age changes with the mindset of realizing that I am getting older. I had to stand toe-to-toe with this fact. It took a lot of soul searching and a honest look at how I felt about being middle age.All I know is that this is going to be and is a time in my life that is full of possibilities and it is what it is! It is all apart of the process.
