Moody Blues

Yesterday in The Detroit News in the Health and Fitness section there was an article about not letting menopause getting you down titled Moody Blues

"Are you a little more irritable than usual? Are your monthly periods turning into a quarterly event? Does life seem more overwhelming now than just a few short months ago? Either you're under a lot of stress or you may be entering the whacky world of menopause, the term commonly used to encompass the time before, when and after a woman stops menstruating."

Sometimes, I think with all this migraine pain that I forget I have other perimenopause systems like mood swings and the feeling I'm being overwhelmed by life. A lot of times, I take these feelings as my inability to cope with my migraines. So I think I need to give myself more of a break and try to realize where all this is coming from.

I wish the article had mentioned migraines as a symptom though instead of just "headaches."
