Question from Sunshine: I am much more impatient now than I've ever been. Could this be coming from the changes in my hormones?
Answers - Patricia A. Ganz, M.D. Many women note changes in their mood and ability to be patient as a result of menopause or perimenopause, where their hormones are fluctuating, and this could be what you are reporting.
Marisa Weiss, M.D. As we get older, I think that all of us experience a natural impatience. We have so much we want to do, and we don't want to waste our time on things that are relatively unimportant. I think that many women who develop breast cancer experience an extra 'wake up call' and want to get on to what they need to do and move past the obstacles that may be in the way.
