I am 51 years old and I've had rheumatoid arthritis for 21 years. I have a very positive outlook and great mental strength but I have been suffering from anxiety since November. I do not wish to take HRT or any other drugs, but I am getting desperate. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

You won’t get the menopause the minute you turn 50! The average starting age is actually between 45 and 55 and it can often depend on a number of factors including hereditary, weight and health, however every single woman will have an individual menopause.
