    We all can relate-- I work full time, and last week at work I finally just fell apart at a co-workers desk! she didn't know what to do with me, except just let me cry on her shoulders. When I was done, she give me some kleenexes and wipe my eyes for me and led me to the ladies room and helped me cleaned my face up. "She then talked to me and I told her I was very sorry for doing this to her. She said Mary, don't you just go and push yourself and you finally had to just sit and cry. She said you need to do this every once in awhile, because no one seems to know what you're going thru."
    Glad you are feeling better. Take care.

    I'm so sorry! Gosh, I can relate though.....after my last pain management appt. when they cut my meds, I had to stop by Old Navy because my son couldn't fit into the jeans he had and I was SOBBING hysterically the whole time I was in the mall, the people just looked at me like I was a complete nutjob shopping while crying like a maniac.

    This disease DOES beat us down at times and its hard not to get depressed over it, atleast for me it is.......the constant pain drives me CRAZY.

    I hope you feel better soon or find some way to manage the pain.

    love,
    Kara

    I reckon "let it all hang out'! If there are people around you that know you, and they don't offer a shoulder then ..they can s'orf! And if its people you don't know, then who cares!
    It is amazing how much better you can feel after letting the saftey valve go and having a good cry. I did mine at home in the plastic container cupboard two days ago Some silly straw had broken my camels back (couldn't find the right lid to a container)........Hahahaha must have looked comical, me thrashing about half in the cupboard and half on the floor...Tupperware flying in all directions!
    I do believe that there are times when IC, kids, husbands, work, bills, etc etc etc. just get too much to handle and we go off like a shaken soda bottle. However, you know, it is a good thing that we can at least let it out............. saves taking the carving knife to the instigator of our frustration Do you think?

    I fell better!!

    Thanks for all of the replies. It truely feels better to know that I am not alone and crying in public is okay!! Okay that was some weird humor. I just feel better knowing that I am not alone in this battle. I did feel better after all of the crying! Wierd how that works. I guess just letting go helps. So thanks all, for sharing and supporting me again. Tami :woohoo:

    Don't feel bad, I had my own breakdown this week also. I was having a terrible flare and when the pain goes through the roof, I find myself anger at everything and I had a good cry for two days and Amy (ihurtoo) really helped alot. Yesterday, I started feeling better and my mood also got better. I do take pain meds (low dose) so that helps, but when I am in a flare, pain at about a 15, pain meds do not help, so there I go, yelling at my kids, dog, anybody. So give yourself a break, I hope you are going to find a doctor that will be a good fit.

    Oh hon...We all have meltdowns. Seems we can take it for just so long and then we have to get it out of our systems. Stop beating yourself up about letting go. Crying is so good for you. It releases your stress level and helps you deal with things. I know it seems weak, but actually it is very empowering. After a good cry, I think I can handle just about anything.

    I feel sorry for some men. They have been taught that it isn't manly to cry. It seems to me that we, as women, are very blessed to have that outlet.

    (((hugs)))

    Tami the stress broke me down yesterday. I just lost it completley. I was even crying because the grass wan't green yet! (I live in Maine) We try to be so strong and then sometimes the straw that breaks the camels back happenes so to say, then we lose it. Its ok, and nothing to be ashamed of. I always feel better after a good cry, and quite frankly, I almost lose at Walmart every time I go there! Its just such a stressful place. Hang in there, you are a strong woman. Hugs

    When your nerves go you have no control over them no matter where you are. Actually I do most of my crying at the stores. Won't cry around family since they don't seem to understand how I feel. I do wonder myself why when men get sick the whole world is ending but yet women get sick and they still have to plug along. Maybe you needed a good cry to help some of the stress and pressure off. Hope you are feeling better today.

    I teared up in Safeway today - I think it happens to everyone at one time or another. IC is stressful in itself, add another stressor in & of course it's too much.
    Sending a hug, wishing you better days soon--

    Tami,
    I'm so sorry for all the stress you are under and how horrible you have been feeling. Don't feel bad about losing it in Walmart, I lose it at work all the time, not very professional. I have to work full time, have 4 kids at home, hubby and mil all in the same house. There are many days that I get to work in the morning and feel like I can't do it anymore and almost start to cry or do start to cry. I have learned though that as long as I make it through work and everybody gets fed for dinner nothing else HAS to get done. I used to be worried about cleaning, yea my house is a mess all the time now but it's not worth the stress to try to keep it clean when the kids will just destroy it again. Do what you have to and let the small stuff go sometimes to save your sanity.

    Tami,

    Gosh, I am sorry you are having such a rough time. Please dont be embarrassed about losing it in Walmart. I bet you half the people in Walmart, have lost it in a store at one time or another! (I know I have! Mine was Lowe's.)

    From reading your post, it sounds like you under alot of stress, trying to be all things to all people. But, you have to treat yourself just as well as you do everyone else.

    I dont know how old your kids are, but if they still need supervison, it might help to call a few of their friend's Moms and ask if they would be willing to trade off child care, and tell them that you arent feeling well, and see if they could keep the kids tomorrow. You definately need a break.

    I dont know if you are on an antidepressant, but if you arent, it might be time to call your Dr. and go on one for a bit. If you are already on one, you may have grown tolerant to the dose and need to have it upped a bit. Even if you havent grown tolerant, sometimes meds need to be tweaked during difficult times. I think you should call the Dr. on call tonite or tomorrow and ask them to put you on one, or adjust the dose of the one you are on currently.

    Women have alot of pressure on them from society, and even from themselves to be perfect. But, we are human first, and our other titles fall after that. Please be kind to yourself and treat yourself as well as you treat everyone else. You deserve it!

    I hope you get to feeling better soon.

    Hugs,
    Amy
