Rough day, lots to do

Posted , 11 users are following.

HI ladies,

I live alone with my two dogs and am trying to cope with perimenopause, which can be a daily struggle. I'm off work today because I am having a medical test done about an hour drive from my home, and I'm having the worst morning- dizzy, fatigue, headache. I am crying and fretting, scared I won't be able to drive myself. I could use some words of encouragement! Thank you . ❤

    Hi Cindy, I feel really bad for you! This time in life really sucks period.. Maybe have someone drive you if you haven't already set that up, or maybe reschedule for a better day. Not that we have any of those ugh.. I have my dogs also they truly keep me going, and I'm dizzy always with of and on again migraines and blurry crappy vision, I take care of my elderly well not really elderly mom ha ha shes 75 husband in icu across the street at hospital abib heart failure. And swollen legs and feet, hes texting me for a ling list of things to drive over to him at the hospital, have the grandkids all week long and their mom lives over an hour away her car is broke wanted me to drive them to her, I'm thinking yeah ok that will never happen an hour away so I had her take the train to me and just let her borrow my car for the weekend , driving causes so much anxiety now if its not close to home . I feel ya.. I stay close to home always no matter what until this all passes.. Its crazy coming from someone who would travel across town no problem ever , just get up and go kind of person.. I will be sending lots of well wishes your way in hopes you make it through this day without any glitches.. Take care ❤

      Thank you This is such a hard journey. i just called to see if i can reschedule. Left a message. Didn't get to talk to a person. I have tremendous anxiety around driving when feeling unwell. It doesn't help. Thank you for reaching out and sharing your story. I hope you are able to take care of yourself during all that you do for others. ❤

    UGH. I hate that feeling. The dizzy feeling is what gets me!!! I Always have ice cold water and something to eat fast. for some reason that helps it and it makes that feeling stop faster. Your not alone and I hate that for you and having to drive. Could someone go with you? My dogs make me feel so grounded and calm...Thank God for them. "It will pass"....I promise....You just need to say that over and over.

      Sara,

      That is so thoughtful and kind! I am doing much better lately. My doctor put me on a low dose progesterone pill and i started getting acupuncture. It makes me sick for a few days- my peri symptoms all seem to get much worse- but when that passes, I feel much, much better. I am getting there. And am grateful every single day for progress because i honestly never thought I'd see it. I say a little thank you to the universe every time I can get in my car and drive somewhere successfully. I've been having a lot of brain fog lately, but am trying to reassure myself that hormones are the culprit How are you doing? xo
