I really appreciate you taking the time to write to me.
I know I have to handle all of this right. I have been at this job for over 26 yrs and loved it for about 22 yrs of it. I think mostly I am burned out and overwhelmed with everything else going on. You are also correct about getting to work on time and not taking days off. I currently work a 4 day work week. That helps a lot as far as stress levels.
Hopefully, I can be strong enough to not tear up. I absolutely hate that I do that and feel so weak. My ob/gyn said that I am in menopause now and am having mood swings (thus the tears) and depression, lethargy and all that wonderful stuff.
I was doing some research on line and found some herbal supplements like Femmerol or Macafem which have good success rates. Has anyone out there ever used something like these? I am going to check with the Dr tomorrow. If this helps it would be a Godsend. Just something to help me thru this difficult patch.
I am trying to take things one day at a time and split up the areas where I am overwhelmed to try to keep them in perspective. Now that I know the mood swings and all that is hormonal, I feel better actually. I don't feel like I am losing my mind.
So thanks to everyone for listening.
