Menopause causes memory loss?

Hell, when the Mrs. went through "the change" she remembered every [WRONG] thing that I had EVER said or done.

AND she reminded me. Constantly.

And then, for reasons unknown to me, a woman can really pork-up despite what she eats or how active she is or how much she exercises or even whether she taking hormone replacement therapy.

Isn't that the same as temporary insanity?
 
2013-01-06 11:55:46 PM
OK, all you young husbands/boyfriends, this is your warning. Sometime around her 4th decade, you are going to be laying in bed with your wife/girlfriend. One night she is going to sit up and rip all of her bed clothes off. You a re going to think "all right!". Then she will scream "DON'T TOUCH ME! I'M BURNING UP!". After a short cooling off period of 5 to 10 years, things will start to return to normal.

I'm not kidding.

Are we going to tell stories?

For a while, I literally could not understand what I was reading. I would get to the end of a sentence and forget the beginning and have to start over. I'm in IT and being "smrt" is kind of important.

I don't want to even talk about the mood swings. Had to apologize to some confused co-workers after I stormed out of a meeting and went home crying. I also threw groceries around my kitchen because my neighbor replaced my trash cans after trash day. Fortunately the patch cured that right up.

I'm still not as smart as I used to be and my attention span is...squirrel!

Also, no hot flashes. I was looking forward to hot flashes.

Hey, don't get me started about mood swings!

When the Mrs. first started going through this shiat I had no clue as to what was happening. She was psycho. Level headed and calm one minute, SCREAMING IN RAGE the next, and then sobbing uncontrollably - invariably followed by SCREAMING IN RAGE again.

At first I thought she had met another guy and was trying to dump me.

Then I was sure that she had become possessed by Linda Blair, and was plotting to murder me in my sleep.

d3ny4pswk2x1ig.cloudfront.net

Oh, did I say sleep? What sleep? She would wake up at least three or four times a night throwing the covers off, drenched in sweat and howling about how hot it was and "why do you turn the f*cking heater up so high?!?!?!" Changing PJ's and grumbling about how she was "freezing" for an hour before it started all over again.

Amos, meet sofa.

She couldn't stand to have me around - and all things considered, that was fine by me. Ugh!

Once we (finally) figured out that it was meno, I took her straight to her OB/GYN, who promptly told her that the only approved treatment - hormone replacement therapy - was not an option for her because of a history of cancer in her family.

Great.

She asked the doc how long this might last, and he sat "meh, maybe a year, maybe ten years. Maybe more". He suggested that she try "black cohosh" or some of the other "natural" remedies that were out there. She tried one remedy after another, patiently waiting for weeks and months in the hopes that SOMETHING might work - but no luck. Twice I took her to the ER because her palpitations were so bad that she was thought that she was having a heart attack. But no, they told her that it was just meno-related anxiety.

She had all but given up when her sister gave her a bottle this stuff, and wow, what a difference. Her hot flashes and night sweats began subsiding within a few days, and best of all (for me, at least) her mood swings, anxiety (and general craziness) mellowed out, and before long she was back to "normal".

Before all this started, I had little appreciation (let alone understanding) of what women go through just because they're women. Oh sure, I was well acquainted with the PMS monster, but I had stubbornly assumed that she was "just being a biatch", but after going through this with her and seeing how it affected her and ever aspect of our lives, I gained a new appreciation, and I am VERY grateful that she finally found something that brought her relief.

CSB? Fark yeah. It is for me. I now understand why so many relationships go to hell at this time of life. "Empty Nest Syndrome", they call it. Bullshiat, it's the hormones. They can play HELL on every aspect of your life, and if you aren't lucky enough to figure out what's going on, they can be vicious tricksters indeed.

The root of pause is Greek for stop, not temporary stop.

If what you linked to is effective, I will buy you a pony.

I tried all the other crap: Amberen, black cohosh, etc. It made things 10 times worse. The only thing I've found effective is not legal in my state and I'm not in a position to move to Colorado.

I've been at this for over three years now and it's absolutely miserable. Any chance of relief is something I'll jump on.

I'm a little grouchy by nature but menopause hit my rage button - bad. The mood swings were wide and lightening quick - throwing things and screaming, then swinging into deep sobs. I thought the hot flashes were going to set me and the house on fire.

I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder even though I had never had any symptoms before. The medical community had me thinking I was certifiable for 6 farking years before I told them all to go to hell, stopped the psych meds and started taking HRT. Everything smoothed out pretty quickly and I will never take another antidepressant as long as I live. Yes, even in this day and age, menopause is sometimes misdiagnosed as psychiatric illness.

My energy, memory and attention span ain't what they used to be. But, I'm old - not crazy.

Mrs. Q ran the whole gambit. Soy, cohosh, Chinese herbs, even that meno drink that Marie Osmond was pushing for as while. All with no luck. Amberen is probably the only one that she didn't try - she was going to, but then she started researching the ingredients and found out that the main "active" is MSG. Yep, farking monosodium glutamate. LOL!

She was even considering going on antidepressants before she found the Wisdom, but when she did, it was like flipping a switch. She swears by it, and so does her sister.

She's been taking it regularly for over a year now, and I make damn sure she doesn't run out.
