Don't be afraid...we are only given as much as we can handle.
I refuse to take mind-numbing anti-depressants so, I will obviously have to deal with these issues as they arise.
I was frankly surprised when this came up as dramatically as it did. The past flushes produced a mild melancholy, but nothing this intense. I think if you recognize it for what it is, you can overcome it. It is nothing really to be frightened of. I feel that it is better to experience the intenseness for a day than to be held down for the rest of my life. I have a lot more years to go and I intend for them to be happy years with a sound body and mind.
I have the sense that flushing is the answer...along with improved diet and exercise.
I popped in my yoga video yesterday for the first time in a LONG time. I'm sore today :-0
Take care and don't sweat it...you are on the right road!
