The only comfort in this thread is that there are so many women going through the same thing! Still pretty tough though. Any one else get the irrational nerves, I feel like I'm going for an interview every day and it's driving me crazy. HRT is graet for the hot flushes but this anxiety seems to have started since being on it. I have a patch, Fem Seven Conti, thinking of stopping it and seeing if the flushes return and the shakes stop!!
