I am right there with you. I guess I need to take into account my monthly cycle right now as well. In two weeks, it will be six months since I crashed into this nightmare episode of depression. I have had such huge stess in the last few weeks, that last week I was in crisis for three days. I am still totally on the edge and not doing very well, but I guess a bit more stable.
I can't get any housework, cooking, dishes or laundry done. My bf has been cooking and doing the dishes...but the rest of the place is a overwhelming right now. Sorry, I should not be rambling about myself right now......
I would think menopause would be a huge factor for bp. I don't really know anything about it... I really hope though that this lifts for you soon and that your energy comes back and your irritability decreases (that's a big one for me too). It's so great that your partner is so supportive and is that soft place to fall for you. It helps so much it's amazing.
I totally agree with Bill...only do small things or what needs to be done. I am trying to take that same advice. The key is to not use up all the little energy you have b/c let's face it, we need our energy to cope moment to moment. I hope so much that you are feeling better today. Thinking of you and we are here.
