    Yeah!! I thought I was going crazy too, but it sounds like perimenopause. I just turned 48 in Nov, and pretty much since that day have been going downhill fast. The worst is the anxiety, discontentment, anger and rage that I feel for pretty much no r - 72% more...

    I sympathize. I am now approaching 56 and take 0.5mg of Estrogen each day to ward off the symptoms of menopause. I too was feeling suicidal in my late 40's. I believe it's a combination of being permanantly uncomfortable due to the hot flashes and mo - 50% more...

    I'm also post-menopausal and am 49. I do not feel suicidal, but I do get depressed and cry very easily. When I exercise it does seem to relieve some of my stress. Not sure if you are religious or not, but prayer sometimes helps me. Maybe you need to - 39% more...

    been there - not sure about the polyps but your pap will probably come back bad. Depending on how aggressive your Dr is, they will want to rip out all your female parts. I would insist on having them treat like they would for a 'warts' problem. The w - 59% more...
