I am on day 23.....yesterday had the worst headache I have had the whole time....woke-up today and it was a little more dull but still there....I have been hydrating a lot....My time of the month just ended yesterday and it was totally normal (no idea if this has anything to do with it)...long story short, I got an email that triggered some sad emotions this morning and now I can't stop crying....any ideas what is going on??!?! ....not the best situation to be cryin at work hah...

Sounds like - you're sad. I'm sorry it hurts. Big hugs. The tears will stop, promise. I hope you find some support for your sadness - it seems like the hard part isn't so much the crying, but the lack of support for the feelings. May good friends and family rally 'round, and may you feel safe to feel whatever this is. Love and light.

Can you get out for a walk outside? Just moving your body in the fresh air does wonders for me. That, and reflect upon what is good in your life and a little quick meditation, even if that means going to the bathroom and sitting on the toilet to get a few minutes to yourself. As a mom to 3 girls, you have NO idea how many times I've used the bathroom break!

It sounds like the email that has made you really sad has triggered some really raw emotions. Now I don't know about you but , previously, I would have eaten my way out of emotions I didn't want. I would have used food to 'deaden' the feelings (I think I ate my weight in chocolate over my first divorce). Now we don't have that option. We don't deaden emotion by turning to comfort food and this can leave us feeling really raw and emotionally naked. It means we have to actually face these emotions and deal with them, instead of ignoring them and pushing them down. Work's probably not the beat place to cry, no, but a good cry can be one of the most cleansing and cathartic things you can do. Michelleinmn's sugestions are all good and, as Amy said, I really hope you get the support you need from friends and family. Be gentle on yourself and remind yourself this too shall pass. All the best

thanks for the suggestions :) i'm feeling much better today, and i know this will just take time....i have lots of support and my fiance is great because he is the only one that knows exactly what i'm going through....i am pretty confident that i didn't consume anything with msg....the only thing i have done differently in the last few days is have a coffee, so maybe the headache is a reaction to that and i am sensitive to caffeine.....the other stuff, well, that will get better in time i suppose. your right kirsteen....no food to eat and comfort was definitely different.....but i feel better after talking with my fiance and just snuggling together on the couch watching our shows. sometimes simple is the best. i appreciate the responses...thanks again.
