Hi everyone. I'm 21 years old (almost 22) and I've had PMDD ever since I was 15 starting my period. It is like I am in my own personal hell for 1-2 weeks every month-- I'm crying uncontrollably most of the time, my anxiety is through the roof, I have incredibly strong unhealthy food cravings, and in severe cases I have considered self-harm. I felt the need to join this community because no one in my support network really understands what I go through and when people can't be there for me, I kind of spiral in a really bad way (as is the case now, as I am currently experiencing my PMDD). I'm tired of it ruining my life half the time and I'm tired of feeling helpless and miserable during these times. I'm on birth control and sometimes I take vitamin B supplements, but the first doesn't help and the latter only seems to help my anxiety, not the severe depression. Has anyone tried medication or something else and has had success? I'm open to any suggestions.
