Need some insight into menopause. I’ve been living with my family during covid and it’s been very difficult with my mom. She is mostly in a bad mood, constantly picks fights, has mood swings at times, and is miserable. Some of this is due to other issues at home but I’m wondering if it could be hormonal. Is this menopause?

Menopause + pandemic + adult kids moving back home (just when you thought you were finally done with parenting) + "other issues at home" = bad mood and misery are kind of warranted.

True, I get it. She’s just been having a rough time and so I was wondering if it was menopause or just issues in general.

could be. Could also be she’s annoyed being stuck with family too lol. How old is your mom?

My mom was like this for a couple years during her menopause. I would visit the OB/ GYN if I were your mom...

This sounds so familiar! I think it could be. I have to write small notes to myself to not engage and take breaths and back off. It’s hard for me to walk away when picked on...Unfortunately my mom still acts like this sometimes , less miserable but just gets really aggressive over the smallest things.

I work 8+ hour shifts in the office as we are an essential business where masks are required at all times. Has anyone else had the experience of wearing a good mask at work and getting excruciating headaches at work that last for a few hours after work? I've already had an isolation period so it's not Covid, but I'm thinking it might be the higher levels of carbon monoxide, as I've tried wearing a different mask and did not have the same problem.

I was due for a promotion but then covid hit, and during the peak of layoffs/furloughs, I was given the run-around that we have agency wide promotion freezes, etc. Over the past month, a handful of people have been promoted. I know everyone's situation is different but I can't help feeling snubbed. How do I know whether they are genuinely trying to promote me and can't, versus them stringing me along for as long as possible? I dont want it to come to having to bring another offer to the table..
