Emotional Rollercoaster

Hi all, I am currently waiting to see the Gynea specialist for the 2nd time after seeing him in May. I stopped taking the depo injection in March and since then I have had period pains everyday but no period. GP has put me on mefanic acid and codine for the pain so I can sleep at night but its currently getting worse. I constantly feel on edge and my emotions are up and down like a yo yo. I am very tearful when the slightest of things go wrong and I have started to become very accident prone. Has anyone else experienced this?

I can relate to the constantly feeling in edge, I noticed I'm making a few speech mistakes, like I say a word but it's not the one I meant, think Just so tired & drained & head all over the place. Your deffo not alone in any of those


how long does this all last as its really getting me down all the time. for example went into work today and a small thing set me off in tears. Went to my GP and then they took some blood gave me more meds and then for the afternoon I have just slept


No idea, I'm the same still. Doctor has suggested back on antidepressants & or counselling but I said no for now but really think I'm running out of options


I'm all over the show too... had to go back to a very stressful Job yesterday after a weeks annual leave and found it too difficult. I woke up this morning and just cried for 45 min and called in sick. Now contemplating getting booked of and counselling to get my head back in the game! The am fatigue is unbearable... I can have a good night's sleep and wake up exhausted. I don't know where to go from here either. .. just so fed up too. I hate this emotional roller coaster I'm constantly on. So things has had to give and unfortunately work is the only part of my life that causes me so much grief and the only area of my life I can put on hold... even if it's only brief!


I've found this whole Endo journey to be taking a huge toll on my emotions. Theres days i just don't want to get out of bed, days where i can't stop laughing, and days when i just want to cry all the time.

Its a horrible thing, and makes me wonder just how much more i can cope with it all.

Hopefully tomorrow will be a good day though!

Hope your feeling better soon

Thank you for your responses at some point I felt like it was only just me feeling like it. Its so annoying. So I spoke with my gp today and I am waiting for 3 weeks to see the specialist and then see where we go from there. Im going to attempt going back to work tomorrow I have a bit of a stressful job and I know it don't help but I am having to go back as staying at home is doing my head in.
