Hi mixed up mum

There is no such thing as a ‘normal’ family and it sounds great that you are all feeling so relieved and free that you are enjoying sleeping more and doing what you want. So what if you eat a little late and sleep a little more, enjoy it.

As for you feeling a great sense of doom during your period, I think it is completely normal for women to feel low or more irritable during their cycle and I think that sometimes any emotions that you have in the back of your mind come out and are exaggerated. However, if this is causing you to feel anxious and having a big impact on you then it would probably be a good idea to go and see your doctor. There might be something they can give you to help alleviate how you are feeling.

After what you have been through it is completely normal to have some negative emotions but that doesn’t mean you have to put up with it. Take control of this like you have the rest of your life. Don’t lose sight of everything you have accomplished.

Best wishes
