If I am not having the best of days and someone asks me how I am, I will say I am fragile or feeling fragile as I feel it explains a lot.

I am not saying I am broken or falling apart but I may need to be handled with care.

I often used to say I was ok when I obviously wasn’t. So now I say to people who I know will understand, I am fragile.

The word fragile can have a scale.

I can feel a bit fragile, up to extremely fragile where a word or a glance can make me burst into tears or think negative thoughts.

I realise not everyone would feel comfortable using this word. So what word do you use when you want to tell those people who get you how you are really feeling?

Is fragile a word you have ever used and does it feel appropriate to describe your emotional state?
