  1. I first began to be aware of my anxiety issues during menopause. I think it was Theresa who commented on the connection. Menopause is over for me but I still struggle with anxiety. I've been on Cybalta for a month and wish I'd started it a long time ago.

  2. Theresa, because we are emotional creatures but at times I envy Dr. Spock. Ha. I do feel invisible but I am getting better at accepting it because I was once like them and I understand it.

  3. About being invisible, with the <45 age group, I often feel unnoticed. I work with lots of younger people and have made an effort to interact with them. At first it's almost like, "oh, you're there", kind of thing. So now its better but I needed to work at building relationships.

  4. I may have 'learned' anxiety during the menopause time and it became a response that I didn't outgrow when menopause passed. It sure has had a hold on me. I have been taking lots of supplements but nothing has really helped. I needed to stop the anxiety response to problems.

  5. With all that has happened over the last 20 months I finally called uncle and decided to go back on something. But my issue with getting older is that I am beginning to feel invisible.

  6. Hmmm, now that you mention it, that was when the anxiety really began. I know that Dad was on Valium later in his life. I was on Paxil for a couple of years but weaned off it about 2005. I gained 40# and blame that drug.

  7. I've had other issues with getting older. More on that later since I need to get to work!

  8. I went through menopause a few years ago it wasn't really a problem. I had nights when I was hot, then cold so I'd pull those covers back on, and back and forth. This probably went of for a year or so. I asked mom about it. She said menopause wasn't a big deal for her either.

  13. btw, mine is filled with dried chicken since I'm training my new dog and want to be ready with a treat when I need it. My co worker had small toys in her pocket. What's in your pocket?

  14. A coworker declared yesterday that you can tell a lot about the stage of a person's life by what they have in their pockets.
