Three weeks ago I got slammed with all the symptoms of menopause(I too went to the list of 35 symptom)I thoughtmaybe I had come down with something.When the symptoms didnt go away and hot flashes clicked in my mind with menopause I started checking to see what the other symptoms were.I have a hystory of endometriosis which keeps me from being able to take hormones.I need something though cause these symptoms are driving me and everyone around me crazy.The ones that bother me the most are the sleep patterns at night with hot flashes waking me at least every couple of hours.Then when I dont have the hot flashes to wake me I have insomnia.The lack of energy and the exstreme fatigue early at night.(I work second shift so this is a bit of a problem.I really dont want to take an antidepressant for the sadness boughts if there is something herbal out there.I went through 10 years of sexual abuse,3 years of domestic violence and never took an antidepressant,now menopause just might do me in,imagine that.Any success stories would greatly be appreciated.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
