It’s driving me crazy….I’m emotional because I feel bad…I’m emotional because I feel happy….
I do have to say, I am very lucky to have a very understanding, caring, loving group(s) of friends…..they are amazing and I am truly blessed!
I have a friend, who if I am sad/upset/mad he will do silly things like text me ridiculous texts or post funny stuff on my wall on facebook that he knows will make me laugh….he’s been a huge rock for me during a year and a half of some major life issues….
I’m also lucky that my FI is great too…he knows when I need my own time and has no problem giving me that…..he knows when I need to sit here and vent at him….and he has no problem doing that either…..
I think right now, I’m just feeling overwhelmed with a lot of stuff (not just wedding and my sis’s stuff) and am WAY more sensitive than usual…..
Sorry had to get this out…and don’t want to post somewhere where people who I don’t want to see it would…..

This can be a stressful time in life. Be thankful that you have people to turn to. Sometimes in this process people find out that they do NOT truly have people they can count on.

How long has this been going on? If you notice a big shift in your mood, and it’s been going on over a week or so, I’d definitely discuss with my doctor. They can give you a better idea if it’s something normal or something you need to monitor/treat. This has happened to me, and my doctor was a big help.

you sound better today. last night you were extremely distraught. we all go through these periods and it’s nice to know that you have people to turn to. i know that your sister is not as supportive as you would like her to be and i know it’s frustrating when you give and you give and you receive nothing in return. not all sisters have great relationships. i’m glad that my little sister is awesome. i am truly lucky to have a great relationship with both my brother and my sister. family is family and you can’t trade them for something else. accept who they are and find support from your fi, friends, and other sources.
i am really glad that you sound a lot better today. hang in there. it will all eventually pass. sometimes venting on an anonymous board helps. you should talk to a close friend you feel comfortable with. i also advise people to seek professional counseling to work through their emotional issues. it’s nothing to be a shame of. i knew someone who was extremely emotional because of a medication she was on. she found out because she was going to a therapist. once, i tried a new bc that was supposed to keep my complexion clear but it made me an emotional wreck. i was not myself. i remember crying because my bf at the time said he would call me in 15 mins and 30 mins had gone by and then while we were hanging out, he started talking to his roommate about some musical instrument and wasn’t paying attention to me. these things would usually not bother me but because of the medication, i was crying all the time.
keep your head up.
