    • Shall we all just have a big group cry and get it out of our systems?

      I had a painting job today and painting usually makes me, if not happy, at least very calm and centered.  Not today, I still just want to cry.

    • sorry to hear, when i get like this i usually go to the park and walk with music, any music really to help centre my thoughts and mentally talk myself into being more merry and cherry.  cry only helps for me if i scream at the top of my lungs or the bottom of my heart.  i did that the other day.  screamed into my pillow as loud and hard as i could.  i screamed with anger, then i screamed with sadness, then i screamed cause i didnt scream enough.  my son heard me i told him everything is alright, he left my room.  my daughter heard me she thought it came from over the road.  my husband couldnt hear.  the next day i felt a little better.  so i think i will scream, cry and wail as loud as i can into my pilliow more often.....heartheartheart

    • I’m not a screamer and not really a cryer either.  I just don’t have an outlet.

    • Dianne, I put my money on hormones. When perimenopause started for me I cried for no apparent reason. Just spontaneous tears. It was very strange. I also had deep feelings of melancholy. Over time it lifted. Is there anything we can do?

    • Thanks ladies.
      Cynthia, that does sound exactly like how I’m feeling. It comes and goes and there’s really no reason for it. I don’t have anything going on to be feeling this way so it must be hormones. How long did it take for it to pass for you?
      Tulip, I’m sorry to hear you are feeling this way too....

    • It is absolutely hormonal, if you gals are between the ages of 40-45, then it is peri-menopause, after the age of 45, it starts to become menopause..your period starts to diminish, you go into crying jags, breasts are tender, abdominal cramping, fluctuations in bowel patterns, mood swings..ahh! so much fun!

      This is according to my GYNE and the ages can vary for some, but it is somewhat the norm.  I had a complete hysterectomy and am now 50, but three years ago, believe it or not, I had the crying jags and mood swings and it was bad.

      Mz, it might be a good idea to look into some form of natural therapy for menopause, either in cream form or pill form. I used a natural cream along with a low dose of anti-depressant which also helped my Fibromyalgia.

      Feel better!heart

    • Mary, I’m 47 and so far monthly is still regular, just more cramping and back pan than used to be. I will ask my Dr about natural therapy next time I see her. Also having anxiety,  wake up with it...fun, fun.

    • Yuck! I remember the anxiety so well, that is why for me the anti-depress/anxiety med helps so much..but I am not suggesting you take it if you would rather not.  There is something on the market called yam cream which is natural, ask your doctor about it.
