That’s how I feel too, overthinking etc I feel like it’s consuming my time. I’ve been using an app called The tapping solution it really helps bringing me back to calm.
thank you 🙏
I feel more emotional than I’ve ever felt but I find I’m overthinking stuff too, things that never used to bother me, then I think how I used to feel and it passes, it’s reassuring to think that we’re not alone - good luck with the tests
It's bloomin' hard I know.
However, please take comfort in the fact that it's very natural what you are feeling emotionally and physically.
thank you just hearing this relieves me from the anxiety I feel. It’s so exhausting too.
As for sleeping yes I’ve no problem there, I may twist and turn once in a while with a night sweat but that’s not a problem. I’ve just started hrt for the last 2weeks just oestrogen.
Im trying to keep positive and know it’ll pass but going through the motions can be hard.
Thank you it’s nice to know I can chat with someone whose been through it going through similar. Xx
Just an update. Work in progress, it's beginning to take shape. Rob you could do one of these! 😊
Hi @Rose Im sorry you are having to deal with this. UTI's can be very painful. Are you given a weeks course of antibiotics or a long course. It's been proven that to clear a long standing UTI you need a course of at least 3 months of medication to clear it and also a low dose rather than a short course of a high dose. It may be worth asking your GP for this or asking for a hospital referral.
Also start keeping a food diary of everything whether it be food or drink that you have as sometimes UTI's are triggered by certain foods. Alcohol also triggers them.
Keep a journal for about a month and you may start seeing a pattern.
Good luck x
It's really hard for men and I do think that a lot of us forgot that they don't understand what we are going through because all the symptoms are internal. If we had a broken bone they could see that and sympathise but on the outside we look normal. Men are very simple creatures lol. X
Oh I love that, I’ve never grown anything other than strawberries 🍓 only a few but they were nice, but looking at those herbs it’s something I’ll think about. Oh I’ve got mint in my garden I took a cutting from my mums garden years ago and each year it comes through thicker, and I actually use it.
thanks Monica 🙏
Hi Ladies, thought I'd remind you of this given it's Valentine's - I personally LOVE words of encouragement like this, always make me feel better. Have a fab weekend x
I'm sorry to hear that. When your mind is racing, maybe try writing down in a notebook what's going on as it may help you get it out of your head. After you've got it out then sitting and doing intentional breathing to open and relax your belly and muscles for 10 mins can then help to slow down the thoughts and allow you to get a little more grounded. Doing work can ramp up the busy-ness so just be careful of getting your mind to work too much when you should be trying to sleep. It sounds like you're doing your best though so be kind to yourself and try again tonight.
