Advice badly needed!
When I was younger if anything upset me, I could cry for a little while then dry my eyes, wash my face and feel better for having had a little weep.
Since the menopause, I find if once I start crying I really have difficulty stopping again. I know I should stop; crying no longer brings the relief it did when I was younger.
It has become far too easy to cry too, over things that at an earlier age I would just have shrugged off.
Has anyone found a way to combat being a cry-baby at the age of 66?
Right now, I feel I am just making a difficult day (the cat just died) more difficult for DH and myself by going around in floods of tears. I am really thankful that the 11 year old cat was only poorly for a week, and died peacefully at home this morning, just as I was preparing myself to phone the vet, knowing fine well that the cat would need to be put to sleep.
I am sure I am not the only person who finds it only too easy to burst into tears and well-nigh impossible to stop again, even although I know I should, so any solutions will be very welcome.
