I give up

Posted , 9 users are following.

I don't know what to do anymore. The week after my period is very difficult. I can't see, my anxiety is through the roof, I have racing thoughts of doom and gloom, etc.. And, this dizziness that started after an episode of room spinning vertigo...is too much to handle. I tried the Epley Manuveur and it did not improve my symptoms. Maybe it is due to my constant squinting and jaw clenching? My life is stuck on pause. I feel utterly useless and helpless. I need to find a job (after being fired), but I don't even know what I could do. I wish I knew it would get better, so I could work toward a goal. sigh

    I'm the exact same! Only I have no clue what day I would be on in cycle ( ovulating , having a period) because of hysterectomy with ovaries still in me.. It frustrates me to not know when this will all end.. I just keep plugging along every month is the same mirror of the month before crazy hormones!!! I wish I could tell you these migraines dizziness off balance vertigo vision awfulness gets better but I can't yet, it still keeps on cycling every month and the actual painful migraine attack is REDICULOUS, every month sometimes more , I know the attack is coming when the vertigo off balance dizziness head numbness vision blurriness dull headache starts then I brace myself for the 3 day long attack, it sends my anxiety into overdrive..well don't know if youve already tried or not maybe unemployment sonce you were fired I think you said, maybe get an attorney if you have good cause with your medical records to have been off work, also try disability, as this definitely causes disability.. And maybe go to the thrift shops of course when you are NOT dizzy with migraine and dizziness vertigo, and stock up on items that sell well on eBay for some income.. Hang in there I cannot wait either for better days!!!

    I never had the dizziness until the morning I woke up with vertigo. It is so awful. Why won't it go away?!?! It has been 7 weeks!!! I was afraid of a migraine aura, but this is constant non-stop all day. I am at my breaking point. I appreciate your money making suggestions. I just want to cry myself to sleep and wake up before any of this craziness started. It is too much to bear.

      I guess thats why older woman who have completely been through this and onto the other side of their lives choose to not talk about all of this because it was so very hard to make it through this phase of life.. And that is why they call it the change, it really does change you.. Remember all those movies based from the 1800s. Where the men are all in the libraries of their homes having whiskey and a cigar with their guy friends and all the wives are upstairs in their beds where their husbands carried them to because they fainted and are resting because they don't feel good dizzy hot and passed out.. Awful times thats all of us now.. Hang in there..

    There is something odd happening in this thread. I replied to you, but it looks like I replied to my original post. So strange. I hope this dizziness cycles itself out soon. I looked back in my journal and my last entry was two periods ago at the end of April. Sure enough, it says, "Why are my symptoms so bad right after my period" and "Eyes are super blurry." It's crazy how you have the same exact symptoms, the exact same time of the month, and yet we still tell ourselves it must be something other than hormones. I laughed at the idea of a husband carrying me upstairs to bed. Maybe because I don't have a husband or an upstairs or am too fat to be carried. HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!
