Moody and frustrated……

Today was an interesting day. First of all I woke up late.

I am behind schedule only to find myself wet from night sweats.

This does not happen all the time only occasionally but I am realizing it is now occurring more than I would like. But there was no cause for delay I had to get ready for work, off to the shower to freshen up and to further prepare for my day. I knew something would be different about today but I could not put a finger on what it was.

Once I got to work, the day began as usual with morning reports and answering of customer’s requests; you see I am a Customer Service Supervisor by day for the local government. So for the most part I was ready for usual and unusual duties of the day, no two days are ever the same. First issue of the day, I am assisting a customer over the phone and she responds in a dissatisfactory manner at my assistance and wants to speak with the Supervisor. When she is informed that is whom she was speaking, she requested to speak with another. I could feel my irritation rising because I had been very gracious to the customer and wanted to oblige her but at so early in the morning, Management had not arrived yet and I felt my patience had been tested.

imagesCAQ9ZSWSThe hot flashes were beginning to flare and as I began to fan myself I asked if she would like to leave a message for the Administrator.

She submitted to the suggestion and I transferred her to the answering service. After I transferred the call, I headed to the ladies room, I was in full flash and I needed to put a little water on my face.

My mind is now rushing in a million different directions and I am having a full blown conversation with myself. I am talking myself out of frustration. There was really no need to feel upset, just calm down and let it pass. I am fanning and I have dabbed a little water on my face carefully not to wash off any mascara or makeup. I did not want to appear upset. I was just having “a moment” and it will pass.

I really could not figure out why I was so frustrated so I was doing my best at allowing the emotion to pass over me. Finally it did and I had calmed down. I felt relieved but still a bit moody.

I went back to my desk only to be faced with yet another issue. I am now thinking “it feels like one of those days”.

Yes one of those days; a day when I feel really irritated and moody for no reason.

I sat down and thought to myself….menopause has struck again.


About nextphasemom

I am a married mother of 2 college age children. Now that my children are grown attending college and working I find myself lost and wondering what to do with myself. In my loneliness I thought I would do what I love and that is write. Now that I am at retirement status I look forward to creating the next phase of my life. To start I am expressing myself through writing. It has always been relaxing for me so I thought I would share some of my thoughts. I am also a self-help fanatic and I try to live an inspired life daily. On occasion I am able to encourage and inspire those around me in a no nonsense way. For those that know me know that when you ask me for my opinion that you will get "the truth"; they know that if you don't want "the truth" don't ask me. No....I am not rude or abusive. I just point out ideas or points of interest that they have not considered or don't want to accept. A lot of my friends call me "the counselor". No..I am not a certified professional counselor but I love psychology. My degree background is business and I am employed in Customer Service. So talking to people on a regular basis is what I do to assist them in finding solutions. Well that is enough about me for be continued because I am ever changing. Take your time to look around and please leave a comment so I will know that you stopped by...until then.
