I need to find out information on depression and menopause, how do I go about doing this? The older I get, the more I lose my zest for life. I take 2 150mg. effexor-XR a day. I am on 3 types of inhalers, COPD, I take 80mg of adderall daily. I found out resently, I have hypo-thyroidism. I just got that under control. I take 1 blood pressure pill each day and 4mg. of suboxone 2 times a day, yeah- in recovery. I have been clean and sober now for 2 years and 4 month. I am 58 years old, married with one 20 yr. old daughter, do GREAT at Grand Valley State University, my husband just retired so we get to spend every single daugh-gone long, day together, day after, day after, day after day. I went through menopause at 50years of age and I feel closer and closer to death each day. My life is not bad, infact, considering, I have it pretty good. So why can't I shake these blues and get on with the show?
