Hello, I usually post on the Fibro website.  I need some advice.  Yesterday I had a really bad day.  I notice around my period I get super emotional and will cry at the drop of a hat.  And yesterday I started my period.  The last couple of days I have been super snippy to everyone, and lose my temper at times.  But yesterday I needed to speak to my psychitrist about maybe doing something different with my meds.  The answer I got was not over the phone (duh) and she can see me at my scheduled time on Oct 2.  I went to my primary and she wanted me to see someone ASAP so she had the nurse call down to  Psych conselling and they could not see me until late next week.  So I am feeling deserted.  Should I feel this way?  Should I wait?  My sister in law has an amazing therapist/psychiatric team.  Should I think about moving to their practice?  I have been currently in the same practice for about 8 yrs.  Not sure if it is doing anything for me right now.  I think that there are other things going on.  I don't have the motivation to finish things that I am excited about doing.  What do you think?  Today I feel drained and tired and just plain sad. 
 
Here is to better days wink

Lisa,

that is really rough having to wait so long to get someone to see you. Firstly, you are brave for posting and asking the question above.

It sounds to me like the team you have around you isn't working for you at the moment, has it always been this way?, or were they ok to begin with. What I mean by that question is, how long have you felt that your needs aren't being meet by them? If it has been awhile, I would probably look at switching to a different practice, but this will be difficult to do while things are a little fragile.

I will answer your question, yes, during hormonal times, I am a mess. I am at my worst during this period and go to some very dark places during this time. Because this happens nearly every month, and I know the signs, and I know what is really going on, I have learnt to 'self talk', reminding myself, that though I may have reason to be upset, at this time, do not take too much notice of emotions, as at this time, they are unreliable. Those few days, I try to do very little that may upset me, and get me to a state that is to hard to pull out off.

I haven't medically examined this with my Dr, as the exams would be too introsive for me, and it is a hard thing for me to be able to say face to face with her in the short space of time we have. I have though gone onto the pill for a period of time, stopping my periods, so I have an emotional brake from the extreme rollar coaster that occurs.

Have you tried taking evening primrose capsules? This is meant to help with the pain at least, I am unsure how effective it is for the emotional side of things.

I wish you luck, and hope that has made you feel less alone, and slightly enlightened to your own awareness.

Just know, in a few days time, the moods will become more managable again.

Thanks for answering. I feel that I am starting to get my head above water again. Can anyone recommend a book that has helped them out or anything that helps them come out of that dark place or to prevent from going to that place. It is so hard to dig your way out once you are in the hole. I decided to switch therapists and psyciatrists. Will see them in a week or so. Thanks again.

Gosh, good choice I think.

Books, I mainly read biographys, and normally written from people that have had a similar life to mine. I take hope and courage from thier stories, and are so proud of thier tenasity. This is where I mainly get my strength from, if they can do it, so can I. Hopefully someone else here will know of a perfect book for you.

Good luck with the new appointment.

There is a book by a doctor Burns called Feeling Good, the new mood therapy. I think you will find it helpful.

Thanks to everyone who helped me during a rough time.  I am feeling better and I can only wonder if I am suffering from PMDD.  I had Post partum depression after I had my daughter.  I think that it was exhasperated with the depression but this time it was bad and felt like hell.  It scared me and it makes me nervous what next month brings.  I am wanting to do so many things but I can only feel like it is part of the cycle.  I feel good an ambitious then it cycles and I don't have the energy to finish what I started...And the fibro doesn't help either.  Well, I will see my new therapist next week and I want to get better so bad!  I want to feel healthy again and lose weight!  Wishing everyone a good week!

Hugs,

Lisa
