Feeling rubbish and lost

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hi Ladies,

I am 46 yrs old and entered into the peri in march this year! since then i've had good and bad days. Today is a bad day feeling worthless!!! 

I have had the mirena coil put back in oct 10 this year due to this horrible flooding i have been having. I am on my monthly at the moment and been bleeding for 11 days and i am feeling drained and my hormones are all over the place. My bleeding slows down then starts back up again. Does anyone know if this normal?

Thank you

    hi Samantha I was the same I went from not having a period for 5 months then came on and was flooding for nearly 2 weeks then it stopped for around 3 days then again whoosh it started again and this went on for several months until I couldn't take it anymore so I went to the doctors and he put me on HRT to regulate my periods then after a year I was taken off the HRT and had blood tests and was told I wouldn't have another period but I went 8 months and had another period now I have gone 6 months again with no period so hopefully i'll not have another one.lol

    Hello Samantha 

    I have the same as you and from what everyone is saying, this is normal. 

    You mention feeling worthless, these are the hormones ‘speaking’, not a reality. Have you tried some kind of meditation/taking 10 mins for yourself when you feel like this to really understand that hormones are affecting how you feel and that you are not worthless.

    Hormones are powerful and it’s hard to overcome their control sometimes but you’re own private thought time to acknowledge that it is hormones making you feel this and it is not a reality and you are very worthy! I have found this really helps. 

    If it continues you should speak to your dr for help.

    Best wishes

    Hope you feel better

    My sister was bleeding all the time so the dr put her on something for it to stopped or at least be more regular.   Feeling rotten and lost is common with me and I know it's hormones.   Just be good to yourself-- keep up with exercise, drinking water and eat foods that are good for you.   I can get things accomplished but it takes me twice as long and some days I need to nap or get to bed early which is OK.  You might want to look into vitamins.  I take iron a couple times a week and then Vit D is great too.

    All I know is nothing is normal in peri. It’s just awful. Hang in there. Praying for good times and great health on the other side. 

    I felt the same as you, but a year later I don’t feel worthless anymore. So better days ahead.

    ❤️
