I am a new person on this forum & it has been amazing to read all the positive posts from people who are living with T & still able to enjoy their lives. Unfortunately I am not doing so well at the mo! My T started very suddenly in Aug 2013 & I (as with many others) found it extremely difficult in the beginning. This time last year I was in a much better place & was living with my at much better & had many days when I hardly noticed it. Then in April the menopause kicked in with a vengeance & almost over night my anxiety returned & has been there ever since! In Oct last year I thought I would try HRT but had a really bad reaction & it really made me feel very poorly for a while, in fact I'm still not feeling 100%. The worst thing is though is that my T has shifted completely (I think this is due to all the anxiety I have been feeling) & I have new noises in both ears & I am in a complete panic about what to do, I feel I am back at square one but with the added stress of my hormones being all over the place - not sure how much longer I can cope!!
