Dreaded Morning....

Posted , 7 users are following.

I'm 46 and going through perimenopause, lately my morning have been rough. I wake up with a mild hot feeling, and fluttering in my stomach or a sinking feeling it's hard to explain. I hate starting my day that way! Any insight on how to get through this?

    Hi Melissa

    There are lots of threads on here describing the same thing, it seems to be the way most of us start our day unfortunately and I know it's flipping awful! I'm 43 and taking bhrt now for 3 months, and the symptoms are improving. For me, it's much easier to manage if I do something physical in the morning. I get up, have a cuppa and then walk my legs off regardless of the weather. It seems to hit the reset and when I get back I'm much much better. Good luck with it, but give it a go xx

    Me too. The sinking feeling. I just say Lord help me. I get up and pet my kitty and get in the shower. Try to hum or sing. Read a favorite Bible passage. I started a thread on this because I woke up Monday and was literally afraid to get out of bed. Why? I don't know. But by the grace of God I made it to work that day and started a thread on here. The ladies on this forum are wonderful. Some even asked how my morning started today.

    I have this most mornings when I wake. I feel it from my stomach and it crawls up my torso and into my shoulders arms. It's like an adrenalin rush like the fight or flight response. It's awful and can be scary too

    As

    there are several threads on this, so its definitely not uncommon. Ive had it for months on end..maybe a year now.

    I try different things to avoid it, stay hydrated, supplement, sleep routine etc. Its the changing levels of hormones, mainly the cortisol, adjusting to the diurnal rhythms, fluctuating. 

    These last two mornings (not this morning) but wed/thurs am i actually woke up calm and told myself that it can be this way everyday. I didnt feel the surges or the doom and gloom. Both days went pretty well for me..

    Learning to talk to yourself and get a hold mentally of whats going on will put you in control, and not succumb to fear. 

    I think of all kinds of things that will or could go wrong, and i think my way into a fearful state. Im tired of this, so im turning it around ever  soo  s low l y  ! You will too.

    Im still a wreck every morning dont get me wrong, but each day i pull out of it, and i tell myself that i dont have to be this way..and i fake it mostly but it gets me through.

    hope you are well..the forum here is amazing support.

      Hi mauiblue

      I do much the same and it really is a mental battle but you're right, if you can get a firm grip in that it only gets better. I'm finding that being less scared of how I'm feeling actually helps me to feel better, so anything that promotes that is worth doing xx

      It's a battle for sure. I'm doing little things for myself. I upgraded my phone. Monday I'm getting a new hairstyle.😁😁😁

      I'm just so happy we're here for each other!🤗?
