    Default Am I going crazy?

    I've been feeling a little emotional for the last 2 days for absolutely no reason. Life is pretty great but I've been tearing up at the smallest things.

    Today I forced myself to go to the shopping centre. I was trying to look at some Halloween stuff for tonight, but there was a lady blocking the aisle with her trolley. I was happy to wait but there was another lady behind me trying to get past. I tried to move out of her way, pushed my pram into a shelf and knocked everything on the floor, burst into tears and left. Strangers were looking at me like they thought I was going to drive my car off a bridge.

    Is it normal to feel this way sometimes or do I need help?

    Please be kind when replying.

    I think sometime sit is normal to feel overwhelmed for no particular reason, however I think the duration and intensity is what matters. For example if I was feeling as you have described for no reason for more than a week or two and it seemed to be impacting everyday life I would think it might be time to head to the GP for advice.

    Sometimes it can be as simple as realising you haven't been giving yourself enough attention (kids and life seem to do that sometimes) and you could benefit from having some 'me' time, doing some meditation, taking a walk daily etc. Or it could be deeper than that and perhaps seeking counselling would be beneficial...

    It is so different for everyone, but if you feel that this is impacting your everyday life and doesn't seem to be getting better over time it might be worth speaking to your GP and maybe getting a referral to see a counsellor.

    Go easy on yourself feezy, it's only been 2 days and it could be anything, probably just hormones, although of course I don't know. I am sure I've had days like this too!

    I agree with above. Hope you feel better soon.
