The levels of estrogen and progesterone are changing all at once and these interact with the endocrine hormones associated with energy from the adrenal and thyroid. This instability can be hard for the body and can lead to crushing fatigue.

Your brain has a lot of estrogen receptors, and when estrogen declines, so does some of the regulation that it provides. For example, estrogen helps control cortisol, the stress hormone. When that regulation is weakened, the increased stress response can result in crushing fatigue.

And feeling tired goes hand-in-hand with another common perimenopausal symptom—trouble sleeping. When you’re waking up frequently at night or have trouble falling asleep, it’s little wonder that the next day you feel drained.

By understanding what was happening I could be part of the change, not being too afraid to talk about it or seek help. I learned tips for sleeping better, eating differently, exercising that was right for my body, supplements that would make all the difference and recognizing what the symptoms were telling me and then trying the various things that could help not just the symptoms but the underlying cause! My self-worth was plummeting and now I am all about nurturing myself and self-care.
