Psychological symptoms in the menopause
0 Replies
NHSgirl - April 3

Hi there, this is my first time on a forum so am a little apprehensive but here goes. Does anyone out there feel like I do at the moment which I am finding extremely distressing and frightening. I am 51 years old and am currently going through the menopause. Last year I became ill with anxiety and depression which manifested itself in feeling that I was trying to think through a thick fog and couldn't feel myself doing things which frightened me. I became forgetful and very spaced out. I was prescribed Citalopram and after a period of three months off work, I managed to get better and began to live a normal life again. However at the beginning of March this year, the symptoms returned only much much worse. I began to feel very frightened about everyday things, again I felt that I was trying to think through thick treacle and my memories were shrouded in fog. Life does not feel real at all and things began to feel odd doing, like making a cup of tea. My greatest fear is that I am going to forget how to do things and it feels like everything is going to fade away. Is there anyone out there who feels the same? I look forward to any replies.
