Do you know how long this will last? I am finding I just want to be on my own a lot. I do not want the stresses of two adolescent kids going through their exams. My nails are flaking, my memory and ability to remember names even is failing a little, I feel tearful for no apparent reason or very little, My periods have become more frequent and heavier. I am just wondering how long this will go on?

You are normally considered through the menopause after not having any periods for at least 2 years. You may find the herb Agnus castus helpful in regulating your periods and I would also suggest a good magnesium supplement, at least 400mg per day, to help with the stress. Wanting to be alone is a very common feeling in the menopause: many women experience this. Just make sure that you do have some 'me-time' every day - 30 minutes relaxation works wonders and is very important for menopausal health!
