Any else cry when they get frustrated and/or feel helpless?

Monday, May 05, 2014

This is driving me NUTS... I think it's hormones or something because this hasn't happened to me before but has happened twice now.

First, I was in a friends driveway, down hill slope and sheer ice. I was stuck and could not get out. I was praying as my car was sliding sidewise not to hit her house! Then I burst into tears realizing I was really stuck and needed help. What the Heck?

Then again yesterday. I was so happy to finally hook up to the gooseneck horse trailer and take it out for a practice drive and learn to back up etc. Well it really has a mind of it's own and learning to back up a trailer that drifts to one side and being a novice trailer 'operator' it was very frustrating that it wouldn't do what I wanted! then I didn't think my BF was being very supportive. He was not yelling but kept saying no, wrong, wrong, no.. and the tears just started coming down. After a few minutes he looks at me and is like 'Oh, are you CRYING?'

I got over it and felt better when he said that it takes more than one time out to learn how to haul a gooseneck and I mentioned an area that would be tight to get out of and he suggested I measure it out and then we'll practice at the park w/ cones.. then he apologized later that night that he was sorry he made me cry. I accepted it, even though it wasn't just him, it was a bunch of things.

anyone else have this? I am not near my period, so don't think it was that. I'm 48, on birth control, Dr said that keeps my hormones in check, but I'm still thinking it's hormones!


Rode emoticon on Saturday. it was very blustery! First time on the trail this year, he was AWESOME. We trotted practically the whole time, we were out for 1 hr 45 minutes. I am so sore...

Rode Biff for an hour on Sunday. We just walked. I was totally fine with that as I was still sore from Saturday! Biff didn't really want to trot much either, his feet were a little tender. Hopefully he'll toughen up as the season wears on.

These were the neatest flowers. Only found them along water.

These are his two pasture buddies. That is Biff's ear in the bottom 'ear' shots.

And this is the *$] that made me cry later on Sunday.

    Sometimes the frustration needs to come out. You could yell or cry or punch something and you need to cry. Actually display of emotion is healthy.

    The flowers are marsh marigolds if anyone was wondering. Yes that is a LARGE trailer!

    Glad to hear that others think it's hormones.

    Sometimes I just cry because there are no words to express my frustration.

    That is one huge trailer!

    It really is hormones unless you had an exceptionally bad week and you just reached the breaking point. My Doctor says birth control won't stop the hormones going wacky when you are nearing the 'M' phase. Average woman gets it at age 51, but symptoms can start years before then...
    Love your photos!! Ear shots are cool :) That trailer is huge! Can't imagine wrangling with that, especially when you load it -good luck with that!!!
    Hope you get some warmer weather to get ride of that ice -that was a scary situation and people do cry tears of relief when the worst thing doesn't happen..

    Yeah, if I'm really frustrated or SUPER MAD, same thing. People tend to think it's because "my feelings are hurt", but usually it's from trying to resist the urge to tell someone to take a flying....well, you know.
