Ok, so my tantrum is over. It really was a hormonal dive. That damn serotonin decided not to be present so much for me. Here’s the deal. When in a hormonal ride, it feels like life sucks and nearly everything is seen from the eyes of hell. I am a
reasonably upbeat happy person. I felt like life was spinning out of control and had no rational reason why.
What did I learn? I learned that sometimes we have no control over what is going on internally. Menopause sucks. I learned that I verbally express everything and it ain’t pretty folks. I can go from being really sad and emotional to really ready smash someone in the head. Of course, I stick to verbally assaulting my friends.
No supply of chocolate can erase the feelings. I didn’t try alcohol or anything else. Not that I want to.
In any case, I really found out that I have friends who really love and care for me. A doctor friend who knows her stuff and I feel well taken care of. So, I’ll be tweaking my diet, taking my herbs (she’s practices Chinese medicine too) and keep dark chocolate handy too.
The next time I take that ride, I’ll be ready or not, but either way, I know it’s temporary.
