Crying, crying, crying.....

Posted , 10 users are following.

and so it goes on, another morning where I wake up and all I want to do is cry.  Last bout of this lasted two weeks.  I feel alone but realistically I know I'm not, there are loads of us out there.  Anyone else feeling the same?

    Don't hold it back, have good cry. Let it out and don't feel bad about it.

    I know you can't always let go to how feel because of kids and work. But if you can, then go for it.

      Thanks for your reply.  I know it's good to let it out, but sometimes it's hard in front of kids and going about one's everyday business.  I have been known to cry in the post office, bank, dry cleaners.  People are always surprised because they think I'm such an upbeat person and that makes me feel bad.  Must remember it's perfectly natural.  wish more people were more open about how they felt.  This afternoon has been better.  Phew.  SO good to have a forum to talk about it.  How are you today?

      :-)

    Check your iron levels (including ferritin level) with the doc and make sure you are not anaemic.  Take a magnesium supplement, then as the others say, hang on in there it will pass.

    Be strong, thinking of you.

    Hi Lucy, I have had bouts of what you are going through, feeling tearful, taking everything to heart, feelings of doom and gloom, I've been going through the menopause for 10 years now, when I find myself in these down moods, I tell myself that the feelings will pass and that it isn't me and I keep that thought in the back of my mind. A good cry never did any harm, it gets it out! Best Wishes wink

    Hi Lucy, you are not alone... I go through times when I wake up like that.  Random things can make me cry at any time, but mornings are the worst.

      Hi Elizabeth, thanks for your reply.  Isn't it pants when days like that happen!  Good to know I'm not alone.  I'm feeling a bit brighter this afternoon but absolutely exhausted.  Emotional tiredness is the worst.  Pretty fed up with my doc who I have renamed Dr Chocolate Teapot, he was flipant and dismissive - and I pay him!  Next stop, gynae.  So nervous of the idea of HRT but gotta do something!

      lucy :-)
