Where you dont know what’s wrong but you’re sad. Like deep down to the bone sad. You cant really think of a reason to be sad because you are blessed with so many different things BUT there is a sadness in you.
I am struggling today and I cannot understand why. Wedding planning is going smooth, I have an amazing partner whom I cannot wait to marry, pay is good and the weather is beautiful but yet and still my eyes filled with tears a couple of times this morning.
Cant process my feelings right now because I dont understand them. I know it will pass, hopefully sooner than later but right now I’m emotionally, physically and mentally drained.

@CocoClassic: I definitely understand. I always try and ‘just keep swimming’ and it always gets better. I’m sorry you’re having a tough day *hugs*

@CocoClassic: I have those days – you’re sad, there’s no reason, but every tiny speck of you is sad and you just want to cry. If it’s only one day – don’t worry, if it’s many days in the month that’s something to talk to a doctor about. If it’s just today and you’re sad, do something to cheer yourself up, listen to some music and have a 30 second dance party (they can do wonders) I also find – at least in my case – eating something sweet like an apple or orange can help (I think sometimes I don’t eat enough and my blood sugar gets really low even though I don’t have any related illness).
But in the meantime, here’s a super cute puppy who might help 🙂

@CocoClassic: That sucks. 🙁 I know that feeling…usually when it’s happened to me before it’s because I’m stressed out and am unaware of it, and the stress registers as sadness.
You should take what I call a Mental Health Day – do something just for yourself, without thinking about wedding stuff or your job or anyone else..go shopping, go out and run in the beautiful weather, or just have a good cry and let it out.
Best wishes, and take comfort knowing you’re not alone in feeling that way sometimes!

Hi there. Yes, I’ve had those days. Just let those feelings come and do your best to “feel” them. They will pass. For me, I can usually point to hormones being the cause after the fact. However, sometimes it’s more than that. Whatever the reason, let the feelings wash over you, shed a tear or two and you will feel better. It’s ok to have a quiet day. Hang in there.

Oh yes. But i suffer from depression and anxiety so they creep up more than often. When i have had a full blown depressive episode i feel like that every day. Not fun.
But now i just accept that we all have off days and we dont need to dwell on them. Its fine to give in a little, maybe watche a movie in bed alone or something. BUt not to fully give into that sad feeling.
Its friday! Smile!

@springbride23: A friend of my calls me Dory – I swear she’s my idol. It must be hells frustrating but amazingly wonderful to forget things constantly lol. That way you can erase the day and start over.
@MsGinkgo: I will take baby pup and say thank you. Its not often that I feel like this thankfully and I felt ridiculous for even writing it because this is a “happy” place but I needed to get it off me and out there into the universe. I’m hoping I released whatever is holding me down so I can get back to the good ole sarcastic ass I can be!
@DaisyBelle: Food for thought. Never thought it was stress manifesting itself as sadness. Truth be told I am stressed – REALLY stressed so maybe I’m sad because I’m stressed. I have too much to do at work today to take that much needed day but the weekend is here so maybe I Will spend it around the house getting much needed rest and eating everything in sight.
@LilRhodyGem: Have you ever heard of Post PMS? I ask because you mentioned hormones and Aunt Flo is headed out of town today but I’m usually enotionally charged before, not after. Maybe I’m losing it.
@Swizzle: I’m so mad at that joke that I actually giggled.
Thanks for the positive reinforcement Ladies. I know “this too shall pass” but I need it to hurry the hell up. I HATE Feeling this way…
I hope everyone has a FANTASTIC day today!

@CocoClassic: I haven’t heard of it myself but I can be moody and emotional afterwards too. Us ladies are complex beings so I wouldn’t put anything past Mother Nature. Sometimes I really just need a good cry (release) and some quiet.
This will work out Coco.

@CocoClassic: I suffer with A LOT of these days, but I suffer with some mental health issues, and self confidence issues etc. Something as little as someone looking me up and down (even if nothing is meant by it) can set me off and get me down for the whole day – my mind always thinks the worst!
Best thing I do to sort it is to eat something nice and healthy, and then go do some exercise! I always feel better for a good sweat haha. If I want to really push myself, I will go to the gym and use the rower. If I want to relax and concentrate on my breathing, I’ll go swimming. Nothing makes me happier than swimming!
