    Introducing myself

    0
    Hi All, I'm new here as well and would like to introduce myself. I'm here because my fiancé is so aggravated with my PMS I'm afraid he's nearly ready to break off the engagement. I see a therapist, however I'm still not in control of myself when I'm suffering through this. I have been very mean and irrational. I need better tools to cope, but I've tried so many things from meditation to...

    I don`t really know how where to start or how this really works. A little about me I have been diagnosed as depressive and later Bi-polar. I have been prescribed  everything from antidepressants to lithium and nothing seemed to control my mood swings . Some one suggested it could be severe PMS but the psychiatrist I was seeing told me there was no such thing as PMS. I continued to medicate...

    Is something wrong with me?

    I'm new to the site. i haven't formally be diagnosed with pmdd but after doing some research I'm beginning to wonder if I truly suffer from it. A few weeks ago I had an episode where I was anxious, depressed, very sensitive, suspicious, and couldn't sleep or eat. I started my period that week and after a week I felt like myself again. But I ruined a relationship in the process. I'm going to go to...

    Ahh!!I was diagnosed with depression at the age of 12-ironically the same year I started my period. I have always had major mood swings before my period: depressed, irritable, cranky, even suicidal thoughts. This past week has been HORRIBLE! Period should be starting in two days. Hubby thinks I might be pregnant. I took two tests already both came back negative. Im starting to wonder if my...

    I was diagnosed with bipolar depression. Well when ever i get my period now i suffer from PMS majorly. It's like my brain goes crazy and my emotions can't figure out what they wanna do and my thoughts don't stop. It's just constant thinking of random things. I can't barley sleep because of the constant thinking. I've tried listening to relaxing music, getting off all electronic devices an hour...
  • I suffer from depression, mostly dysthymia, though I've had bouts of major depression throughout my life. I'm 53 now, and I probably didn't make the connection between my more severe moods and PMS until I was well into my 30s or 40s. Once I made the connection, it was a little easier to "plan" what I would and wouldn't be able to accomplish during certain days each month. It also helped me to...
