This was posted in a menopause support group I’m in, and I am sharing here to increase awareness. Last year I experienced a terrible, deep depression, which I believe was connected to menopause. The person closest to me at the time told me to “turn that frown upside down” and encouraged me to “chin up”. Such platitudes and dismissals are not helpful when coping with any mental health struggle. It is useless when dealing with the tidal shift of hormones and how that impacts brain chemistry and wellbeing. I am grateful for my homeopath and my best friend, who helped me notice that I had stopped taking some key supplements. Heilkunst and supplements got me off the ledge and back to being me again.
