      Hi Annmarie I am sorry to hear that you are having such a difficult time just now. It is very unusual to be going through the menopause for so long, have you had this checked out by your doctor recently? Other health issues such as low iron, low thyroid function, low vitamin D or B12 can appear and cause low mood or depression. Your doctor can test for these just to rule them out. I have also posted a video blog on crying and why it can happen so please do take a look.

    Hi Eileen, I'm really suffering with feelings of depression and desolation. I even feel like I am about to go into an epileptic seizure. It's not continuous but happens around every 28 days. I'm really on my last legs and sometimes even feel suicidal. All my doctor can recommend is putting me on HRT which I really want to avoid.

      Hi Beula If you are not on any medication for anything from your doctor you could try the herb Hypericum which is known to help with low mood. However, if you feel that this is really affecting your quality of life then it is important to see your doctor. For some women the hormonal fall can be so great that they need some kind of medical help. Please don't suffer with this!
