What can I take to help me with all of the symptoms? Itching skin (mainly my breasts), increased abdominal girth, weight gain, dark spots on my face, isolation/depression? I'm desperate...I would really like to enjoy the rest of my life and as it is now, I am too embarrassed to lave my house! I work from home so this is literally what is happening. I have raised 2 sons on my own and am finally ready to live my life and either I'm too depressed or scared to go anywhere or my boobs are itching like crazy to the point that I have to scratch so I couldn't possibly go out like that! And speaking of that...how am I ever going to be intimate with a man again?? Oh, yes those are scabs on my breasts dear, but let's make love...give me a break. I feel like my life is over, thanks to menopause!
