I've been feeling really depressed all week. Or longer, on and off. Tired, sad, unable to do productive work. Unable to commit to or care about looking after myself by eating nourishing food or exercising. Today I felt much better, which was a relief. But I don't know how long it will last. Since there is nothing bad going on in my life to cause depression, I'm assuming it's purely hormonal from the whole menopause thing, which can go on for years. I looked into hormone replacement therapy, but that seems to put you at higher risk for things I'm already at high risk for, so it doesn't seem like the best choice.

It was very nice to feel normal again today.


  1. It's horrible when we feel hormonal and can't get out of the rut! Big hugs and enjoy today xoxo

  2. glad you're feeling better! I have an appt with my doc to discuss HRT, too. I'm "only" 45, but the menopausal symptoms are pretty disruptive.
