but now I know what she was talking about when she complained about sweating so much! LOL. I have been going thru perimenopause for about 10 years now. The severe moods swings, blood clots, weird periods started about 8 years ago. Really bad rages, mostly against myself.

It was clear. Now, it's the "waves of heat". I have no other term for it. I am always exhausted, emotionally and physically. I work a very stressful job, and have to keep others on schedule, etc. I went to my PCP and told him to draw blood for hormones, thyroid, and blood sugar. The results came back, and the comment for the hormones was "you are well into menopause". I'm not even 49 and never had kids. I now understand why mum was the way she was and I wish I could tell her that. You are NOT crazy! I thought I was, but now I know I"m not.
