So tired of this crazy ride!

Posted , 8 users are following.

Hi Ladies!

Just need to vent! I was finally starting to get a break today with the heatburn I had been having for the past several days and then all of a sudden I got this weird feeling in my stomach which migrated to my chest. Of course this sent me into a panic and I was left feeling weird off and on all day long. I kept checking my bp and pulse to make sure it wasn't my heart. My legs had that weak wobbly feeling and I felt tired and strange all over. I will be so glad when all of this is over! It does not follow any discernible pattern of behavior at all!

    You just described me today. After I had terrible gas, I had the same darn thing. Scared me into a panic attack. My legs felt heavy which I think was coming from the anxiety. I've had this feeling before and it still scares me. I came rite home and jumped in the bed. You are exactly right, it has no discernable pattern. It just happens when it happens.

      I have Ativan, but like you, not really enthused about using it unless I really need to. I was driving when it happened and my daughter was with me, she let me hold her hand long enough to calm down so I could drive home. You are rite. Every day it's something. I was very irritable this evening and I don't know why. I was snapping at everyone. This is all so draining.

      Even driving I can feel the anxiety I was never like this before this last period for me has been never ending a few weeks now just literally had my period and still going but with barely anything it's a nightmare and I am hoping this and all the symptoms go soon this is a miserable time and not too many people understand because they didn't go thru it

      I understand. I have no clue what triggers the anxiety. It just comes over me. It has gotten a little better, but I still have my moments. I noticed that when it's time for my menses ( which is due in a few days) I seem to have the worst symptoms and this week has been rough. I just had a menses about a week ago. It's truly crazy.

    ive also failed to find any pattern in all this craziness

    there are times i purposely go against certain habits i had formed - like avoiding caffeine or white sugar/ flour foods....just to see if it triggers any of the awful symptoms but no- i find no direct link

    its all very hap hazard- every day is a new day full of stupid surprises. i hardly get an evening of respite

    i start to panic thinking this could go on for 10-14 years !! even after that it may leave behind its scars for life !!!

      I know I keep wondering how long will this go on. I have young kids too. So that makes it difficult when I'm not feeling my best and they are running around the house and want my attention. I feel bad for them sometimes because they deserve the real me, the happier me and they get the grumpy depressed me sometimes. I hope they don't remember this part of their upbringing. I remembe when my mom went through it. I was about 10. She was always yelling at us for any little thing and crying a lot. We thought she had lost the plot many times. I don't want my kids to feel like that about me.
