Yes, Lanka.....I get awful anxiety before my period. I go a bit psycho and cry and throw things too...lol!!! I think the best thing is to be AWARE that it's coming and have help on hand (ie medication for me and body armour for everyone else!!)
When I'm not in my right mind, my left mind gets pretty crowded...********************
My anxiety definitely worsens around the time of my period!! In fact, when I initially begin having A/P, it was at first diagnosed as a really bad case of PMS.
My doctor has suggested exercising even more than I normally do when I am due for my period, and even upping my Zoloft a little bit the week before. It amazes me how I can feel pretty "normal" until I become premenstrual, and then the anxiety continues until my period is over. I am 47, so I guess I am right in that age bracket when my hormones are really getting out of whack- I am trying to remind myself of this and to try to "go with the flow" (no pun intended!! ), but sometimes I am so miserable that it is hard to do this!!
