You know that moment... — The Bump
TTC after 35

You know that moment...

... when all your frustration, sadness, and disappointment finally come welling up and you can't push them down anymore because you did something stupid like, oh, say.... hit your head on the ledge on your way up the stairs from the basement??

Yeah, I just had that moment. Tears are over, for now. I hope my little cryfest is simply a result of hormones and is indicative of AF's imminent arrival...

Re: You know that moment...

  • *hugs* I'm sorry. :(  I have those days too - where I'm holding together pretty well, and then something happens that normally wouldn't faze me, and bam...I'm falling apart.  Sounds like this was you today.  The hormones probably have something to do with it too.  Hang in there, hope tomorrow is a better day for you.

  • I've had that kind of week! Meeting friends for drinks after work tonite and going to put it behind me, I've cried enough for one week.. Hope your feeling better!

  • I can't help but mention that when I have my FP (adopting this for AF) I am SO CLUMSY!!! I dropped a container of popping corn TWICE the other night + other random slip ups. I finally just sat down and called it a night :P

  • I'm sorry for your moment.  My DH is OOT for a boy's weekend.  Last night I was reading one of the bumpie's DH's IF blog (yes from his perspective) and just cried my eyes out.  I went to bed and had another cry, just feeling sorry for myself and how much the world sucks at the moment.  I'm glad DH wasn't around to witness my sob fest.

  • Ouch. That sounds painful.

    I've spent quite a bit of time this past year being thankful that I haven't gotten into any car accidents. 

    I hope you don't develop a headache. At least you can take Advil ...

  • I've definitely had my moments - I hold it in and something snaps and the floodgates open - I do feel better after a good cry.  I'm sorry you're having a bad day I hope the weekend gets better for you :)

  • I'm glad you got to have a good cry, although I'm sorry you are having a tough time.

    I felt particularly down this week, and had a breakdown when a bossy checker at the supermarket insisted on telling me about their new rewards program.  These things happen.
