I DON'T KNOW ABOUT MEMORY LOSS, BUT IT'S MAKING ME A LITTLE BIATCHY, PERSONALLY.

And open the damned window, Subbster, it's a freakin' sauna in here.

Shut up.

notyomama: 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.


Yep. Driving down the road in a perfectly normal mood, listening to NPR. For absolutely NO reason I would just burst into tears. Never related to the radio, or my thoughts, just BAM, crying!

i am so fortunate that the HRT patch worked. I only had to take it for about a year. And it looks like I'm just about done with it with relatively minor symptoms. My doc described it as like being a teenager again, but in reverse. That explained a lot.

Amos Quito: phenn: Amos Quito: 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"

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.


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.


Good jobs guys!!! Extra BJs and steak for you!
