    Hi I know it's difficult at the moment. I sometimes have that feeling of needing to cry and if I do even if briefly it eases the frustration. Take some time out for yourself have a cry if you need to as it's your body's natural pain relief both for physical and emotional pain. If you feel you cant cry easily then try a cathartic intervention like watching a sad film or listen to some music I know that sounds bizarre and the opposite of what we feel we should do but it's important to recognise feelings and not repress them. Our bodies are controlled by our hormones aren't they!! Try some relaxation techniques too and deep breaths life is extra stressful at the moment so even without the hormone imbalance this is really beneficial even 10 minutes each night. Really hope you feel better soon.

    Big hugs....honey, you are stressed. Did you read what you do in one day, in one space, with all the people in your home??? You mention you feel like crying but haven't, like you're going to burst....can you go outside somewhere (with your mask on) like a walk in a park or the woods...and LET IT OUT!!!!

    Then take a lavendar bubble soak in the tub, listen to your favorite music, then watch something funny.

    I read your words and see myself....funny how that happens. But I'm here thinking i have some sinister disease happening that's causing mental and physical symptoms. So while I'm offering you comfort i'm driving my family nuts with my own anxiety. Sighhhh.... It's this damn pandemic world we're in, on top of what we would normally be stressing about.

    Do what works for you..and keep doing it.
