    • My menopause has really been kicking in this weekend...everything has just been rubbing me the wrong way...I have been angry, moody...nasty and no matter what I have done...I just can’t kick this mood!  I have pulled out my bag of tricks and tried to pull myslef out it, but to no avail...now, I am asking...what do you do to get out of these sorts of moods when you are stuck in them?

    • I complain a lot. And loudly.

      I’m big into fragrances, including linen sprays, body splashes and scented candles. Many of the quality scents are geared toward harmony, peace, relaxation, balance, etc.

      I hope you feel better. My mom suffered with menopause quite a bit, particularly when the hormone therapies were pulled.

    • I think I tend to want to be by myself for a short period of time. Usually music helps. If everyone is home, I let the kids know that I’m feeling crabby and need a little alone time. Fortunately, they are old enough to get it. I go in my room, turn on some music and either read or just take a little mini-nap. Feels great. I also talk about how I feel...if I’m in a low mood (not often!) I say it. Better to be open than make others wonder!

    • I’ve been known to have a blue day now and then.  The best remedy for me is to be alone.  If I can find some sun, that definitely helps me...even if it’s a stream of sunshine through the window on a cold, winter day.  

      I guess my favorite place on a blue day is laying on (or in) my bed with the sun streaming in on me while i either snooze or put a pitifully sad movie on the TV.  I admit it...sometimes i just want to wallow in it.

    • Hmmm, had a few of those days those myself, though I’m generally cheerful and optimistic. If it’s hormones, I remind myself that it’s going to pass soon. I’m always telling my clients that we don’t have to be led around by our emotions, and sometimes I need that same advise for myself. If there’s another source of the bad mood or attitude, I really have to talk it over with God. I pour out my complaint, take a walk, or a hot bath, sometimes do some journaling over the issue. Again, as with the hormones, I remind myself that it too will pass and I’m careful not to make rash decisions or judgments while in the dark place.

      Blessings,

    • I guess I am just overtired. Today was my youngest 10th Birthday, she was up all night due to overexcitement about the day that was coming....AND...our new little dog, who found us decided to go into heat the other day...so the combination of birthday excitement, dog in hormones and one old lady in lack of hormones...along with three teenagers with raging hormones... a hubby trying to escape all the hormones ...well, there is just alot of overstimulation going on...I will be ending my day with a candle lit bath in my jacuzzi tub, with candles and prayer, eating a box of choclates and maybe a rasberry martini...oh, heck, it’s Sunday...no matter, it’s Monday and it’s Happy Hour somewhere...right! happy

    • If I am really “down” I call my girlfriend Kathy, and as soon as I hear her voice I am feeling much better.  She is such a great person and friend that just the sound of her voice lifts my spirits immediately and I feel better.  It is so nice to have a friend that can do this for you by just hearing their voice.

    • For me I tend to sit quietly for a few minutes and decide what would be best for me at that particular moment. Sometimes it’s going and having a pedicure, sometimes it’s calling a dear friend, sometimes it’s just crying and knowing that the moment will eventually pass. Midlife for women is such an inconsistent time! Our emotions can change on a dime. And, I find that each incident is different with a different remedy and sometimes no remedy at all. I must say, though, that chocolate doesn’t work for me, thank God! Since I work with it I usually have access to anywhere between 50 and 100 pounds of the stuff! I’d be huge.

      Prayer also helps me. I find comfort in it.

    • I tell myself that tomorrow will be better and that today is a day to just get through - I remind myself to not make any important decisions on this type of day... they can wait until the tide has turned...

    • I hope that being home and getting some rest in your comfort zone helps to perk you back up, dana. I can’t imagine you without that smile on your face!
