Fear of next hour/day

Posted , 16 users are following.

After suffering with severe and intense peri symptoms for the last 2 and a half years, the days that I feel well and I can function without problems are few and far between. I do not know what to expect as I am not normal anymore.

Thus, I have developed a serious phobia about how awful I am going to feel due to my hormonal fluctuations during the day or the following day.

I think that this kind of fear is the most awful of all the symptoms. It is scary, ladies, isn't it?

    Sorry to hear this.. I know it's scary!! I develop this when I know holidays or parties are coming and period is due. Also afraid I won't be able to rest properly beforehand.. : ( I wish I didn't think like this.. Today, my anxiety is high from too much going on- I can't control it and just want to cry. Hopefully we'll have better days coming.

    Evi,

    Yes this is very difficult and I too suffer from this. I find that if I have an event that I need to go to whether it be work or personal, I get quite anxious because I never know from one day to another how I am going to feel. This aspect of our hormonal nightmare is so challenging and depressing.

    I have stated this before on this forum and another....the fact that I cannot count on myself anymore if so disheartening and have caused me to become more depressed along with the anxiety that always seems to hover just under the surface.

    I wish I had some words of wisdom that I could offer to help you but I can't. If I find anything changes for the better on my end, I will be sure to share with all.

    Hi there,

    You're so spot on evi, this is exactly how i feel on a daily basis.

    I just take it day by day as it's all I feel girls such as us can do... most days I cant think straight, am exhausted, ache all over and just wonder how I'll carry on!! 😦((

    Deep breaths girls and carry on!!

    Hope tomorrow is a good day.

    AJ. xx

    I just started this journey and it has already taken my independence. I feel exactly as you do. I agree, I'm "...not normal anymore." And, I too have developed a fear of what each days brings. My vision has been severely effected and it's very stressful. It's a sad way to live.

    I feel your pain. I was fine Friday then Saturday and Sunday I couldn't get out of bed, crying sure I would never find joy in anything ever again. Today I'm fine. What a rollercoaster!🙄

    i agree with all you ladies! i ended up not being able to count on myself to be right for anything, including work in the end! had almost a year off, unpaid as no contract and no sick pay, running up debts! back working pt now, change of job entirely, but i am taking 20mg prozac so i guess thats helping me get to work lol. going from a fully functioning teacher of 25 yrs to a an anxiety ridden hermit has been just awful. 3 yrs post now and with the help of sertraline and then change to prozac ive had a career change, which i needed, flew to australia on my own (and i hate flying!), found myself a good man for once and have never been out and about visiting places so much! anxiety still lurks and i sometimes still have to fight it, but lots of my life has changed for the better. so, hang in there, it does get better. see it as a time to de-junk your life - toxic friendships/relationships/bosses/jobs! time to put ourselves first ladies xx

    Hi Evi, I agree this constant fear of feeling too bad to function is just as bad as feeling too bad to function.

    Praying for a few more good days for you!!

    Thank u all of you so much for the support!

    I am so unlucky person because I am too young for this kind of torture! I am still having regular periods so I am wondering if this torture is going to take years for me!

    oh God mercy me!

    I will have an appointment with my doctor next month in order to check up my condition. I had a surgery before 2 weeks in order to be removed an ovarian cyst ( possible endometriosis) and I am going to discuss how to manage my low estrogen symptoms. I have no quality of life due to this. There is no life is you cannot feel healthy and normal

    Now, I am on 3 day of my cycle and I am struggling with an awful headache

    I pray for all of you. Hugs!!!

    My adrenaline rushes, heart palps, and shakiness have become so bad during the night that I dread going to bed at night. I'm exhausted, but can't sleep.

    I understand you completely.
