If you've noticed that your moods are in flux these days, or you're overly reactive to your family, friends or movies you watch and books you read, you're not alone. One minute you can do it all - juggle work, kids, bills, exercise, cooking (our lists our long!) - the next you may feel overwhelmed, irritable or tears are flowing for no clear reason. As menopause approaches, many women begin to feel sensitive and moody. Reminiscent of adolescence, especially of our now fading premenstrual cycles, many of women find themselves on an emotional roller coaster. No, '15 is not the new 50,' but with the hormone shift in our 40s and 50s, women are more vulnerable to mood swings.
