Ladies, I need to address this subject over and over again, as there are so many women out there who is suffering in silence. Yes, I am talking about hormones. From the age of 35 our hormones declines fast, and as we approach 40, things are really picking up.
This phase called perimenopause (leading up to menopause) can last for years. Symptoms can vary greatly and I will not go in to any details here, but one of the most important thing we need to address is mental wellbeing.
You might feel a bit lost, not really knowing what is going on or what is happening. You might find yourself rethinking life, career choices, partner choice and much more. You might feel depressed, totally exhausted, not recognising yourself.
This is perfectly normal, you just have to recognise and undertand the process. Many of you end up taking antidepressants, but usually all you need is a little hormonal help.
So please – make it a priority to check your hormones, and be persistent as many doctors do have minimal training in the subject.
