I’ve definitely self diagnosed! Against meds but did start Zoloft and it has helped. Don’t plan on being long term though. Also have a lot of female clients that struggle with this! Having a plan in advance can at least improve managing symptoms. So better managing sleep when I get insomnia, scheduling therapy around that time of the month, making healthier cravings, hydration,scheduling naps, investing in midol, heat packs, and keeping up with some movement to ease symptoms. If I had the luxury to use pto 1 day a month for it I would! The insomnia and mood change are what affect me the most personally.

I thought it was just me. I feel like I definitely misunderstand people’s intentions and am easily hurt 1week before my period. I have also erupted on my family server times. I don’t think my symptoms are normal but I don’t know what to do

See a reproductive health psychiatrist! I’m having a similar experience and my therapist referred me to http://www.susanparkmd.com/

How to deal with a BF that has a cush job, lotsa free time, low standards for housekeeping? I have the exact opposite scenario and get very minimal help. When I complain, he says I get stressed too easily and that I am nagging. I showed him articles about silent work, how women have to work harder etc. We live together, don’t have kids and can’t imagine the burden when that happens. I believe in ‘coaching’ but tired of trying.

Would this be a deal breaker for you?
