    Little rant of mine

    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...

    PPMD is ruining my life

    Hi everyone :) The smiley face feels so stupid, but I don't want to seem like Eyore RIGHT off the bat. I'm 40 and PPMD has had me do everything from call suicide hotlines, suffer debilitating panic attacks, sobbing in public.... there's nothing that I can do it seems to help the utter hopelessness, and the worst of it is the isolation I feel and yet at the same time I push my loved ones away...

    Tachycardia During Ovulation or PMS?

    Please tell me I am not alone in this; I have had a problem with tachycardia for awhile and have been taking note of when it occurs and it seems to me that it might be happening when I am ovulating or having PMS. Now my periods are VERY irregular, I am having PMS already I think (or in my case PMDD). Does this happen to anyone else. I would just sleep better at night if I knew I was not alone...

    My symptoms, anyone else?

    About a week before my period starts I notice I get really moody and irritable for almost no reason, and I'm bloated. Then about 4-5 days before I feel sick to my stomach and nauseous and have occasional cramps for the remainder until day one. the first day of my cycle is the worst, the cramps are unbearable for at least 24 hours, I'm nauseous and don't want to eat at all but light bleeding. The...

    PMDD - doctor battles

    Hi all, I'm new :) Trying to find some help and support for my PMDD. I've been under a specialist for nearly 18months now who has insisted I try a range of birth control methods to try and help. The pill was flat out useless, depo injection has appeased the rage but turned me into a paranoid, crazy, depressive mess. Anti-depressants I am currently on but this really isn't the issue because its...

    major PMDD and bipolar.

    So every single time I'm PMDDimg I get extremely depressed and very hostile. I have thoughts of hurting myself. Never suicide thankfully. But it gets VERY intense. I also have cyclothymia (lowest form of bipolar) and my moods get WAY worse during this time. I'm on new medication for the bipolar and they help me a lot but NOT during my PMS period. I've gotten to the point that I'll rip my hair...
