For me the worst part is feeling like I'm losing my mind... every month. Major shifts in mood and literal fits of rage that I have to excuse myself and practically meditate to get out of. I have always been and even tempered emotionally steady person so this is hard to handle. Especially when I'm trying to decide if my marriage is working or not. I have often wonder if this is a major contributor to WAW.
I did a thread on Peri - thought I would post it here.. so you can read what others have said about their experiences..

PMS / Peri -M....feeling overly sensitive / Mood swings...how do you deal ?

Re: Menopause

Oh my God... My wife is 42 and probably will deal with this in a few years. I'm scared now from reading these responses.

You owe it to yourself to do some extensive research. SA has some really great threads on perimenopause and menopause. Husbands need to educate themselves.

Every woman is different, though there are some similar, I think 35 or so symptoms that seem to be common.

Libido can go through the roof or it can take a nose dive. Depends on the woman and no one can know what to expect.

Educate yourself. Be prepared to help her any way you can and where and how she will let you.

Work on communication skills. Know when to talk and when to let her be. Listen and strengthen your resolve.

It's a very tough time in a woman's life. All you can do is support her the best you can. Educate yourself.

Sorry.

It is a woman and that is an abbreviation for her username.

@SimplyAmorous

Do a search on her thread(s). They will help you.
