I can't be the only one...
I like to think that I have things in check. I have as much of a routine as my 6 month old will allow, my home is clean, my relationship is solid, my child is happy and healthy. I am not a robot, nor an emotional mess. I am happy with my life's decisions. I love my child, my boyfriend, my dog and guinea pig, my family.
So why. Someone tell me why that at 34 years old, it all completely falls apart during my period? Inconsolable. Emotional basketcase. Impossible girlfriend. Crying for 4 days straight. Either eating everything in sight or not a thing for days. Questioning every decision I've ever made. Dramatic? You bet! That's the problem. So why?
I've heard that there are some birth control pills that can help this but I'm not a fan of pills and messing with things like that.
He thought I was upset because we aren't pregnant. Instead of trying to explain that that's not why I'm crying, I say "That's not it. It's a good thing I'm not." How insensitive can I be? And I didn't mean it like that, I just meant that it's a good thing because at 6 months post partum, a pregnancy could be unsafe.
Ugh. It's only a few days and I'll be right back up again. I just hate it. Thanks ladies, it feels good to come here off shift and just unload.
The medication I take for my fibromyalgia is an anti depressant. I was kind of pissed that I got an anti depressant for a pain issue but it's supposed to help with both. It does, honestly. I'm not suggesting this is what you do, I wouldn't suggest an anti depressant to anyone that doesn't truly need it because they do have very real side effects. My point is, you should bring this up to your doctor and discuss a way to deal with this that works for you. If it's wanting advice about more holistic/natural remedies your doctor should be able to guide you in the right direction.
