Hi all! I'm a 47 year old mom to 3 little girls (9, 6, 5) and I started seeing a psychiatrist because I've been on Lexapro (they said it was post partum depression), but my irritibility, anger and motivation to do anything is really bad over the last year-ish. I don't want to be touched (my poor husband), and I feel guilty for yelling at my kids and being unhappy when I have so much to be happy about. My life rocks, but I'm not feeling it. Anyway.... I'm wondering if these issues could be hormonal/pre-menopause rather than anxiety/depression, ADD - which is what I've been diagnosed with. My doctor took me off Lexapro and now has me on Wellbutrin XL which is making me feel sick (it's been a week). I'm beginning to have doubts about treating my issues this way. I guess I'm looking for feedback about when you started having pre-menopausal symptoms and what they looked like. Thanks for any feedback!

@mechele That is awesome! Thank you, yes they do help! I was using Nature's Sunshine progyam cream, from organic yams, but the govt got involved and is making it very hard for companies. =( So, I am using Young Living progesterone oil, can't remember name specifically. I still used magnesium complex from NS tho. Love that company! =) God bless!
