I'm 52 and have had a blood test, which confirmed I am menopausal! I feel as though I'm going mad: anxious, forgetful and not able to concentrate on more than one thing at a time. This can make me more stressed as I have a responsible job and I worry about making mistakes; a vicious circle as this makes me even more anxious. As a consequence I'm not as decisive as I was or as quick at problem solving. I suppose my mood is up and down with a sense of dread at times [why?]. I tend to cover up these symptoms, which can be hard work in itself and isolating. I feel exhausted. Am I going mad?
