Anyone else an emotional basket case?

If anyone talks to me when this is all over I will be amazed. I have gone through mood swings that make PMS look like childs play. I get irritated by everything! Even the smallest things.

I have never gone through such a rollercoaster of emotions! I feel like I am losing my mind! One second I'm fine and the next I'm on the verge of tears the next I feel like I'm going to explode and throw my computer out the window. I feel like I am possessed and any minute my head will start spinning.

Has anyone else gone through this?? Please tell me I'm not alone.

Anyone else an emotional basket case? are not alone. I am dealing with my second shot of depo lupron..I have been maintaining...but today I hurt and have been able to cry at the drop of a hat the last three days..and I do not cry..I am a high school teacher in an urban district and I am the one that usually makes others cry....I am holding on for my June 14 surgery but the last couple of days I am ready to give up and just get my TAH/BSO done NOW!!!!! I am trying to make it to the end of the school year and the end of my 16 year old daughter's Junior Olympic volleyball season ( travel every weekend)....I want my house cleaned and organized...I guess the bottom line is I want to be in control of my surgery date BUT my body is not agreeing....I feel for your roller coaster ride...I teach biology to 9-12 graders..they are educated now about fibroids, estrogen levels, smooth muscle cells...but they greet me every day with an assessment of my mood..I try to stay cheery but patience is running thin...hang in there..I am by the tips of my finger nails...Sue

Hello, I am almost one year post op. The 29th of this month actually. What you are feeling is absolutely normal. One thing I want to add is you might feel very emotional and depressed after the surgery. For three months I was so depressed, I wanted to run away. It might not happen to you but just in case just know that it will go away. Good luck and hang in there!!!!

Oh! Sorry, thought you were describing my life. LOL! Actually that does describe my life. At times my DH thinks I am Qeen B****! My DD will ask him why I yell and get uppset all of the time. He just tells her that I am sick. I mean, how do you explain all this stuff to a 9 yr old.

I go through all kinds of emotional stages. I can wake up in the morning, not even be up 2 minutes, and something sets me off. I have days when all I d o is cry. Then there are some days when I am fine and nothing in the world can bother me.

You are most definitely NOT alone! I am 5 weeks post-op and today I came totally unglued. In tears, shaking and very edgy about everything. I go to the Dr. Monday and we will have a long talk about this.

Talk to your Dr--mine put me on an anti-depressent before surgery to help with the stress before and after the surgery. This part of the ride is almost over--the stress/dread/unknown of the upcoming procedure could contribute. Talk to your Dr--the best advice that I can give.

Keeping you in my thoughts

Emotional basket case. Pretty much easy to do now. I do pretty well in the day time. And work has been a God send since I can't imagine not having something else to think about. Nights are bad. I'm up and down, crying and praying. I have 4 days to go to your 3. Keep writing down things - on this board or in a journal - it may make you feel stronger.

we're booked for the same day and yes, I've been feeling pretty scared. I've been so busy with work, getting things ready for the person who will be covering me and, at home, trying to organize. I know I won't get everything done beforehand and I'm pretty stressed about that. Haven't cried yet (doesn't come too easy for me), but I'm sure I will yet.
Hang in there and remember, you're not alone.

I am sorry to hear that you are sooo depressed and upset all the time. I am 6 1/2 weeks post-op and I have been feeling depressed for the past couple of weeks. Post op stuff and other personal issues I'm sure.

I know that before my surgery I was freaking out really bad. I was really scared because my DR thought maybe I had a bit of cancer in me. He found a large unidentifiable mass on my right ovary and a semi large fibroid. So, needless to say I was depressed and upset over that plus just having a surgery depressed me. Loss of freedom and major pain to look forward to.

Your surgery will be hear before you know it and just getting that over with might make you more relieved.

Good luck to you.

You described me. I'm going thru the same thing. I even started another thread (Emotions) this morning about this.
I hope these feelings are only temporary.
