The past week has been revolting and I have coped less than well with it. The mood lately has verged in the swinging – but this week was all glum all the time.
There is Ducks home game tonight (go team!), but I really wanted some quiet time to decompress – so Don, Joe/Frank and Bessie left me to my devices while they went to cheer cheer the red and the white.
My devices include pottering about, patting kitties, eating beans on toast and drinking a nice cup of tea (or two). It is rather pleasant and very relaxing. Just what I needed.
Further to my wildly swinging moods, I whipped up a handy chart to illustrate:
Yesterday Don and I were discussing how we might address this, primarily because I am doing all the right things (regular exercise, not a lot of drinkering) and it isn’t really working as I’d expect. I’m really full of the negative self-talk &etc and it is a bit unpleasant.
Then it struck me, could this be … menopause?!?!?!
