Well today I feel really good because my PMS or "Mad Cow" as my friends affectionately call it, has finally passed. I think that I have PMDD (a severe form of PMS) but didnt see it on the board. But I feel like now I have to scramble before next time hits to find relief. It gets so bad that I want to kill myself. I am not just saying this. I want to commit suicide. I cry the whole time. It usually lasts about 3 days and when I wasnt working I would sequester myself from everyone so I didnt say or do anything that I would regret or be embarrassed of or destroy my house. I dont even want to be around myself but cant escape. So I would take Xanax for three days to dull the emotion, but now I'm working again and cant do that. I work in an office and when this hits, I pretty much keep to myself and am real quiet. I cry at my desk the whole three days and wish I were dead. When it passes, I feel like myself again and am embarrassed for the way I carried on and cried like a baby the entire time. It really is pathetic. This is very serious because I am afraid one day I will kill myself during this time. I really am like a "Mad Cow". It makes me so irrational that I scare myself. I've tried antidepresants but they dont help at all when that time comes around. I just tried YAZ the birth control pill to even out my hormones, but it didnt help and turned my 3 day nightmare into 6. I think that I will do some research tonight on herbal remedies. I dont know what else to do. I cant take the prozac as I have migrains and both meds cant be mixed. Plus, I didnt feel good on the antidepressants. If they can help, I am all for it, but they didnt help me, I just put on a lot of weight. So I started exercising and eating better and went off the antid's and started losing weight but still had mad cow. I quit the sugar, thinking this could be the culprit, but no, mad cow was still in the house. All I know now is that I cant do this every month. I just cant! It is so severe and emotionally draining. I dont want to go thru this even one more time. Its exhausting! Does anyone have any ideas?

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
