Moody Blues

Alert!  The following post is a bummer.

If you are looking for a few laughs or smiles, well this post is devoid of either.  Consider yourself warned.  

Oh, and there is hormone talk going on here too.  And you might read words like "ovulation" and "menstruation". Just sayin.

I am blue again.  Yes, again! 

Lately, I have been up and down like a roller coaster.  What the heck!  Seriously, what the heck?

I used to just be moody or blue during the week before my period, but that has all changed. Now I am depressed before my period and when I am ovulating.  So, for two solid weeks out of the month, I am just so down.  That's half the month!  

What is going on?  I just hate feeling this way.  It stinks!  

I want to be the old "me" again, not this half on / half off person.  So, what to do?

My thyroid levels appear to be normal, so that's good.  Is there other testing that can be done to help determine if all of my hormonal levels are okay?  

I have been tempted to make an appointment at Woman to Woman Health Care Clinic because they specialize in women's healthcare, but they are all the way in Maine so it seems like a stretch to me. 

Ah, well, sometimes it helps to just vent a bit.  I know that this too shall pass. At least I hope it will.




  1. So sorry to hear about the "blue" days, Melissa, but believe me they're a normal part of life and help you really appreciate the "bright" days. (Have you ever tried SAM-e, it's natural and helps increase the levels of what your body naturally creates to get rid of the blues.)

    In just three weeks we'll be coming to stay for a bit and we'll be sure to put big smiles on everyone's faces and bright feelings in everyone's hearts!

    I'm having blue days right now, too - Toby has been at the vet's for three days, being fed intravenously. I think she's nearing the end, but we have to try to do what we can. Hope we can bring her home tomorrow and give her some comfort before we have to make a decision. She's such a sweet cat and we'll miss her a lot! Love ;-)

  2. Mom, thank you for the encouraging words. I tried SAM-e years ago, but maybe I should give it another go.

    We can't wait to see you and Dad! As Andrew always says, "It will be fun!"

    I am so sorry to hear about Toby. I know that you have really enjoyed having her as a part of the family. She has brought much joy!
