    PMDD possibly

    I live in super conservative louisiana and idk where or who to get help from with symptoms coinciding with my literal cycle only!!! I get pills thrown at me for symptoms and I’d rather have 1-2 good weeks a month than none so I’ve stopped all. The past few days the symptoms are coming back and it’s hopeless despair again with guilt because I have no reason to feel like this. My family believes you should just shut up and get over it. Idk what to do!!! Any suggestions please!!!! I have grandparents I need to take care of and an older husband. I can’t be like this anymore. Can someone relate and help or talk. I’m so lost and hopeless and wasting my life. I’m over 30 and can’t remember not having this

    Why not look for a second opinion? What kind of pills are they throwing at you (antidepressants, uninterrupted birth control pills)? Is your doctor a gyno?

    Some things to try:

    - Calcium supplements

    - Vitamin B6

    - Chasteberry

    - Reducing caffeine intake

    - Avoiding alcohol

    - If you're a smoker, try to stop

    - Yoga and/or meditation

    Also, stop talking to your family about this because that's probably making the whole situation more stressful for you and that can aggravate your symptoms.

    Hope this helps!

    Try seeing a good gynaecologist to get to the bottom of your problem.
