Do you have any information about different treatment options?
Over the past few years I’ve had a dramatic increase in weight.
For the last few years I’ve been on an emotional roller-coaster. My weight crept up and I constantly felt exhausted and miserable. I assumed these changes were all linked with menopause, but years after the life change I still felt depressed. I slept for 9 hours most night, but seemed to wake up exhausted and often dozed off when watching TV or reading a book. I didn’t have the energy to enjoy playing with my grandchildren, which only added to my guilt. I was constantly on the brink of tears and would snap over almost anything my husband said or did. My doctor had prescribed anti-depressants, but while it levelled my moods, the tiredness didn’t go away. After a frustrating few years I found I was suffering from sleep apnea which was one of the main reasons i was feeling depressed. I was put on CPAP treatment and the change was incredible. I feel so much happier and my family says it’s like they have the ‘old’ me back again.
