Disappointed and Sad

Posted , 8 users are following.

Does anyone else get disappointed and sad when they get their period? Every three weeks, I am hoping it will just stop. I hear these stories of women who say that their periods just stopped one day and that was it. I truly get sad when I look down and see a bit of blood on that first day. Maybe I am just hoping that the periods stopping will ease the symptoms, but from other posts, that doesn't seem to be the situation. I am thoroughly bummed. I guess I will keep my fingers crossed for another three weeks. I want to buy a pair of pants in any color besides black.

    good morning Staci... you have to remember and this is very important, you cannot base your menopause or symptoms or your cycle on anybody else’s. Throw that out the window, each of us is completely different, like a fingerprint, none the same. even though I’m post menopause, I still get the low mood at when my period used to be. again and I know I’ve said this several times but I’ll say it again, I do not believe these women who snap a finger and they have no problems or there cycle stops and it’s all rainbows, butterflies and unicorns. This isn’t possible because our hormones have completely changed. These are women that are either already on some type of med... whether it be an anti-depressant, pain pills, etc. so please don’t listen to that either. you know how competitive women are ...I think a lot of women like to say that to feel either superior or like they’re better than the person suffering etc. it’s just annoying. I am also reading how much gluten is affecting peoples moods, brain health, how good is your diet? I have to be honest, I love food so I do struggle with that. be kind to yourself and try to take it a day at a time, try to just let things be as they are... because sometimes I think wishing our cycle would leave for good, only makes it persist;) things will get better, hang in there ...xo

      Thank you for your sweet and thoughtful reply. I am just so tired of this heavy period every three weeks accompanied by migraine that leaves me bed-ridden. I get seriously depressed when I see my period starting. I am so over it. My mother is one of those annoying no symptoms women. She said it was like a faucet and one day it just shut off. She never had a hot flash and has no idea what age it happened. I definitely need to overhaul my diet. I don't understand how my thin friends shovel food and I count out each serving and am a blob. xo

      Staci.... first of all, you are not a blob. Women can eat like that and don’t exercise that’s in their genetics and yes it is maddening and not fair but it is what it is. I always tease that last year I got a muffin top and now this year I have a cake top;) thank God I didn’t bleed like that, so I don’t blame you, because it would even produce anxiety the thought of it coming on. Did you see my comment about the ablation ... is that something you’ve discussed with your doctor. it worked very well for my friend and she was ecstatic that she did it. i’m really sorry you’re having such difficulty. that cracks me up, your mom doesn’t even remember when it happened, I’m sure when we get to her age we won’t remember either (Gods Will, I just learned that expression from my friend and I love it) it’ll all be a blur ...lol let’s raise our champagne glasses, here’s to it all being a blur someday SOON 😉 with all that bleeding is your iron low. You know instead of taking iron pills, which can constipate, you can take a couple tablespoons of high quality blackstrap molasses. God bless you xo
