I am 42 years old and have been going through perimenopause since I was 38. I have reached the point where I feel like I'm going crazy. I am out of control in every aspect of my life. Over eating, over drinking, over spending and the anger has reached a new level. I went into a rage last night and don't even know what I said, but did suffer the aftermath from my boyfriend about how I am never again to speak to him like that. I am taking anti-depressants but cannot take hormones due to a long smoking history. Who has suggestions?View Thread
