Hi everyone I am new here and think I am starting to enter perimenopause. My symptoms are lack of energy, tired all the time, sleep disturbance-I sleep for an hour and a half and wake off because I have to throw the covers off, go back to sleep, wake up again in an hour and a half...I need some sleep. My periods used to be every 28 days like clock work..now they are late by days but I still get all the symptoms of my period even when I dont have it. I am on the verge of tears and i am in a new relationship for a year and the poor guy doesnt know what to do. He didnt know the old me and I am afraid that if this is the beginning of menopause it may wreck this relationship. I am so sad all the time for no reason. I lost over 120 lbs and should be so happy but now I would like to just lay on the sofa. I cannot take hormone replacement as I am a cardiac patient and I smoke. I know, I know, not a good combo. I am trying to quit but losing weight and quitting are two very difficult things to do especially when I feel so low. Is this the beginning? I have an appointment with my GYN and I am hoping if it is she can give me some options. I don't want to feel like this. Thanks for listening
