My PMS is unbelievable. For about a week before my period I am very depressed, angry and resentful of my life and family. I feel exhausted and hate my duties and chores around the house, so the house is a complete disaster during these "spells." I'm a student and have no motivation to attend classes or even get a degree when I'm PMSing. I am short tempered with my son. During this time I literally hate my husband and feel like I want to leave him. The hormones throw me for such a loop. My husband and I fight during this time because I feel so miserable. When the hormones are gone, I'm back to myself and feel content and lovey with my husband, family and future. He's getting tired of the rollercoaster ride which is completely understandable. I would think it's bipolar disorder except it is directly related to my period. To someone who hasn't experienced this, this probably sounds like a controllable problem but it's not. Even though I know I'm PMSing, I still think my thoughts and mean feeling are valid and convince myself that this is how I really feel. It's horrible.
I'm not one for pharmaceuticals, but I'm almost to the point of going to the doctor and begging her/him to prescribe me something...anything to make me feel better during this week.
We don't have insurance so I can't afford to go get extensive testing done. I have a copper (non hormonal) iud.
Has anyone been through this? How do/did you deal? Did anything help? I can't live like this anymore.
Thanks in advance for any support and help.
