I'm new to this community and to the world of peri-menopause. This may sound weird but I feel much the same as I did with post-partum depression (depressed, anxious, not sleeping) except that I am sweating all the time now. I was getting down around Christmas time and seemed to improved a little but last Thursday night, for the first time in years, I woke up abruptly in the middle of the night. I was hot, but didn't think about hot flashes. I haven't slept a full night since, I'm not that hungry (very strange for me), I'm thirsty all the time and I just sweat, sweat, sweat! My family doc has put me on Effexor and I'm already on gabapentin for something else -- I guess I just have to wait and see if the Effexor helps. Has anyone else had an experience like this?

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
