Hi, I recently got the depo provera shot about a month and a half ago& have had the worst time coping. The shot has basically made me a walking rollarcoaster of emotion. The tiniest things will set me off and ruin my attitude for the entire day. If I'm not crying I'm yelling or lying in bed. I have no ambitions or motivation to do any of the things I used to do. I stay in my pajamas and lay in my room in the dark or I go to work and I can't even work as well due to my unhappiness.
Before the shot I was the embodiment of the perfect worker, a good attitude, never cross, nothing could bring me down, I was efficient and didn't complain regardless of the situation at hand. But ever since getting the shot I hate everything and everyone. My relationship has been on rocks due to me flipping out about literally nothing. I hear the things I'm saying and I know I'm acting completely crazy I just can't stop myself! A decade ago I used to cut myself, and once I got myself in a better place I never once considered it, I looked down upon myself for my outlet choices and never wanted to be that person again. Yet in the past month I've considered it many times. I don't plan on starting to hurt myself but lately I'm scared of myself. Nothing goes my way ever and I know it's all in my head because literally the same things would happen months ago and wouldn't faze me. I'm just feeling so fragile and I'm genuinely scared of myself at this point. No wise words have helped and there's nothing I can do for two more months.
I came here hoping maybe someone has had a similar expierence with the shot, or maybe a solution. I'm just unhappy to the point I spend most of the day wishing I wasn't here. People don't want to be around me, my boyfriend is supportive but even I can see its wearing on him as well. I mean If I had the choice i wouldn't be around me either. I'm just seeking help or guidance of any kind or even support. I just don't know how to get through this

Hello and welcome to the forum. I personally have no experience with what you are going through, other than menopause, which is it's own form of 'insanity'.

Have you put the keywords in the search window? I know there have been other posts on this topic. Don't post a reply on the old threads, just read them and see what you can glean until someone replies here.

Hormone imbalances and adverse reactions can wreak havoc for sure. Keep posting. We understand.

Yes, there is a long thread on it. The shot will do it. I hope you don't get another one.

Best wishes, I hope you feel better soon.

Hugs, Karen...

I would suggest seeing an endocrinologist. They may be able to help you get a better balance of hormones, thus relieving some of the symptoms. It's worth a try.

There are herbal teas that help with calming. Dark chocolate is a mood elevator. There are vitamin combinations that help with stress.

I hope you find a solution to your situation and that it resolves quickly.

I am worried that my words will also not help if they haven't helped previously. Anyway, I am so sorry to hear about this. Perhaps you need some restart, change of pace, to introduce something new and interesting into your life? Perhaps a new hobby or something else that will make you fulfilled and improved relationships with those close to you.

Hi there, and welcome to the forum Addisonbby82.

I would talk to the doc about the depression. Since you been on it for 3 years, that might not be what is causing it, but it could be. But an antidepressant or some therapy could possibly help the situation.

A lot of people taking depo get terribly depressed. Just don't let it get too bad before you do anything about it.

I hope that you feel better soon. Keep posting and know we are here for you.

Hugs, Karen...

Hormones can play on mood.

Try an alternative method and stop being on shots.

Ask your doc for advise.

This is an old thread but I'm wondering how the OP has gotten on since then. Please update if you see this!
