Re: My Wife Is Going Through The Change. SHE IS ABSOLUTELY BATSHIT CRAZY!
My 52 year old wife is going through the change- she is nuts to live with! I've never seen her so batshit crazy. Any advice from the GLPers who've been through this?

Yep, my EX-wife went through this and got so bat shit fucking crazy she walked out the door, left me and the kids, and never returned. A vagina is normally the cause of such a thing so you don't have a chance...wish you the best bro.

I am 50 and every woman in the generation above me had a hysterectomy, there has been no one in the family to even discuss it with for most women my age.

I'm down with all the support/understanding. Really, I sympothize.

But what to do when she screams at me like a lunatic and tells me if I don't leave she'll call the cops? Then when I try to leave (only temporarily to let things calm down) I get screamed at for "walking away". I try to be supportive, tell her I love her and that all will be OK to no avail.

If something doesn't change, she may leave on her own or force me to, even though I've been understanding and supportive.

Nice . . .

You're lucky!
Many are not so lucky.

The adrenal glands take over production of progesterone and estrogen once the ovaries shut down.

If a woman has unknowing adrenal function issues (mostly due to an undiagnosed under-functioning thyroid), then she will get symptoms of menopause, and sometimes very severely, due to a progesterone and estrogen deficiency.

Estrogen is essential for neurotransmitter synthesis, strong bones and many other functions.

Progesterone is essential for numerous essential functions in the body too.

Hence why men have these hormones too, despite media brain-washing that men are full of just testosterone.

OP - Get your wife to take a saliva hormone test to see which ones are way out of balance.
Also an adrenal hormone function saliva test would be useful.

'canaryclub' online do the best packages and cheapest 'DIY do it at home' saliva hormone tests i could find online.

Once you know what her levels are - it's best to supplement with bio-available estrogen, progesterone or testosterone, or DHEA depending on what the test reveals.

TRUST ME - She'll thank you for it! :-) ...and you'll feel like a newly-wed again!

Best advice: Relinquish complete control of the thermostat to your wife at all time. It may save your life.

There is hope. It has almost been a year sense I last posted to this thread when I was going through my batshit crazy period or lack of LOL.

The mood swings are gone, I have my sex drive back to some extent and feeling more secure, calm and relaxed than ever. I went cold turkey all natural menopause LOL.

I would say your problem is temporary and not to do anything drastic or harsh. Just wait it out. Do not take it personal. As bad as she is making you feel, she feels even worse for being that way.

When you are going through it, if feels like it will last forever, but it is temporary. Be patient and try the things suggested to ease the symptoms, but most of all, wait it out.

Read the books "Do not Sweat the Small Stuff".

You may want to remind her that her frustrations are normal for our age, she will feel better soon, things are not as bad as they seem at the moment, that you will stand by her through the hard times, that you sorry she has to go through this and sorry that you might have done or doing anything to make it harder on her.

AND remember, the reward, after this, NO MORE PMS

blessings to you and yours

If it was you who was behaving like an absolute d*ck, you can bet your life she would not consider it her fault for not being accommodating or understanding enough. Just ignore her. The difference between an adult and a child is that an adult can take responsibility for their feelings and not dump them on innocent people.

Hot flashes feel like you just walked in to a sauna. It's part of growing old. But it's not making me go bat shit crazy.

They didn't make me nuts, either. But then I went through "the change" in Africa, so if I had a hot flash I didn't know it.

I will say, though, menopause was the best life change ever, primarily because my moods are totally on an even keel - never an up/down/up/down - ever.

Re: My Wife Is Going Through The Change. SHE IS ABSOLUTELY BATSHIT CRAZY!
I want to offer the OP some hope. I am a married female, 48 years old. When it first began to happen to me, I'll never forget it as long as I live. We were in Texas at a wedding and I was 44 years old at the time.

I have always had a difficult time during that time of the month, but this particular month, I felt as though I was going crazy with anger and frustration. It felt like Dr. Jekyll-Mr. Hyde. Every month, it was as though another person jumped into my body.

I went to the GYN and he related stories to me how women would come to him and wonder if they were demon-possessed. He tried to give me an anti-depressant, which is what the entire medical community wants to do - DOPE them up and they'll SHUT UP. Well, I refused it - because I knew in the long run that a drug wouldn't solve the problem. My GYN was no help at all.

Next, he tried to tell me that I have fibromyalgia because, not only did I have mood swings, but for about 8 months when I got out of bed in the morning, my entire body hurt so bad that I almost couldn't walk. Finally, long story short.........after a lot of reading, research, trying different vitamins, etc. This is what worked for me:

1. The #1 thing that helped me is that I have a very loving and understanding husband. We talked about it - I told him how I felt - I bought books about it on Amazon. We openly communicated about it and helped each other through it. He has been through a heart attack as well, so we both must be patient with each other.

2. I found out that since I'm Caucasian, that I was very deficient in B-12. My family doctor told me that a large majority of Caucasians of European descent have a B-12 deficiency. We also found out that my husband was deficient in B-12. Now, he gives us both a B-12 shot every two weeks and we feel 100% better. It has helped my mood swings and my overall feeling of wellness. B-12 is very, very important.

3. I take a multi-vitamin every day, to include the Vitamin D3 supplement, which is highly recommended.

4. I do not drink alcohol, do not smoke, do not drink diet sodas, do not take anti-depressants and I drink a LOT of water. We stay away from most fried foods and try to eat a simple diet without a lot of preservatives.

5. Also, I learned to be very aware of my body. I learned to notice subtle changes. One website that has helped me tremendously is this:

[link to www.power-surge.com]

This has been a lifesaver and it allowed me to see that I was not going crazy. Women can have up to 34 symptoms, even during peri-menopause. I'm not through it yet, but the symptoms are so much better. The B-12 is a major factor. I can't stress this enough.

My doctor told me that if a woman is low on B-12 and if she has blood sugar problems (Type 2 Diabetes or Hypoglycemia), that it will "make her as mean as an alley cat". (a quote from my doctor) Why? Because your chemicals are basically screwed up, for lack of a better term. Your blood sugar is not level, and that really affects a lot of people. My mom is a Type 2 diabetic, and if her blood sugar gets too high, she could argue the horns off of a billy goat.

I highly recommend a lab test for your wife to test her B-12 and to check her blood sugars as well. There is help for this, but communication, reading, research and self-awareness are a HUGE part of it. Please tell her you love her - allow her to cry on your shoulder - she is not crazy - it's a miserable time - just be there for her.

One more thing: Find a hobby that you both enjoy together. For me and my husband, we LOVE nature photography. Now, we have our own photography website, and when I feel these hormone issues begin, I have something that really helps to distract me. I hope this helps.

This is a good post OP. Very similar to me. I will be 54 in a few months. It started for me ten years ago and I admit to some ugly moments. Birth control pulls help but women should not take them for very long because of the health risks. Wearing lighter clothing and taking a multi-vitamin every day helps. Good nutrition.... Raw veggies, low alcohol intake.... Moderate exercise.... No soda pop.... Take it easy on sugar and salt... Orange juice and water.... Lots of water helps. Yesterday on Christmas I had two small glasses of wine but also drank water. I feel for both of you....I was iron deficient and was put on prescription iron for a time. Using a estrogen cream is better than taking the pill...she needs to go to the doctor so she can get some help. Anti-depressants mask the problem.... Hope she can get through it and you too. All couples go through this in varying degrees.... But healthy diet is important at our age.... Alcohol (IMHO) is a killer. Small to moderate consumption is fine but it's really not the best thing on a regular basis. Take care and Happy New Year...

This is unfortunate. She could gave gone to the doc and gotten a prescription cream for that. Easy peaty. I had been there.... Makes all the difference.

Vision, all the women in my family had hysterectomies too. I am 47 and going through it. I am not in good shape and I think it's making it worse. I feel tired a lot and my iron keeps getting crazy low every time I do see aunt Flo.

Re: My Wife Is Going Through The Change. SHE IS ABSOLUTELY BATSHIT CRAZY!
52 in great shape, no RX crap, and batshit crazy too. I do not get it, I cry over beer commercials for no reason. I was always the strong stable one. Now I can not remember my phone # or how to spell my name half the time and had to change my glasses three times last year and still can not see my food.

To the judgmental bitchy snob who blamed it on being unhealty, fat and drugs, you sound more crazy than the ones you judged, you are just too crazy to see it. Menopause war LOL.

And for the sex cure / treatment, you would have to be brave, well armed and stupid to try it at this time. I told my old man to go find a younger model for the weekend. You just do not feel sexy after not sleeping for two weeks. The insomnia alone will drive you crazy.

My sympathy too all of us and our loved ones and the innocent bystanders in the crossfire LOL

Read this to my 46 year old wife who is in her first year of this "challenge" and she says "sing it, sister. She has the crazy too, almost dangerous at times. She tried taking the absolute lowest dose of hormones possible and ended up in the ICU for a week with pulmonory embolism (lung clots). Discovered xanax and it changed her life. Not a cure, but helps manage things and get through the worst of it.
