**Update** What is WRONG with me?? Falling apart...

My severe fatigue has set in. I had it for 2 years, it disappeared for 6 months now for the past few days I feel it again. My period is due soon. I'm crying uncontrollably. My family hasn't seen me like this in at least 6 months.

My dr says I have Major depression/anxiety/bipolar features. I don't understand the "bipolar features" part.

I'm 46 so probably peri-menopausal.

Thank God I see my dr tomorrow. Last I saw her 3 months ago I was great. And now what happened?? I do have a lot of anxiety about an upcoming trip...dh says if I'm that freaked out, just don't go. If I feel this badly, I would not feel up to going at all....I'd be staying home while family went 12 hours away for Thanksgiving. Why can't I be normal?

**I've been reading about "crashing fatigue during perimenopause" and I'm really thinking I've got some hormonal problems going on!!! Thanks for your replies!

do you think part of this is PMS related? I'd bring it up with your doc.

Why can't I be normal?  There is no normal when it comes to people.  You will probably surprise your self and have a great time on the trip.

It could be related to the weather. On top of my depression, I have SAD and it makes life a living hell every fall and winter. Good luck. ... take the trip, you might feel better.
