I am new here. I used to think I was the most sane stable person ever. But within the last year or so, because of empty nest mostly I am having a combination of what I think is anxiety/depression. I am 58 years old, still getting my period. Maybe it is a hormone thing. If I have something to do I usually am fine, but then when I come home and am alone at night (hubby works evenings too) I get this combination of anxiety and depression. I have taken Xanax in the past and also even took some pain medicine (occasionally) that my Mom says always makes her feel better and helps her sleep. I dont want to have to be taking meds to get over these feelings. I want to feel like my old self, and not have these constant mood swings. What can I do other than the meds???
