loulou,

It is totally normal. I get the same way as you, before AND after my "friend". It's caused by the fluctuations in our hormones.

Hope this helps ease your mind about it.

Wow, this is a really great topic since we women have to deal with it every single, gosh darn month. Here is my experience and how I've learned to deal with it. The two weeks before my period starts is the beginning of my emotional roller coaster. I begin to be anxious because I know what's coming. Soon, I get agitated and annoyed by anything and everything. The smallest thing can really set me off into my angry phase and at that point I will say or do something I will soon regret. Then my period finally starts and I end with the depression phase where I cry, endure feelings of hopelessness, not wanting to get out of bed and unfortunately thoughts of suicide. I've never attempted suicide but I can count on these thoughts and feelings every month. My inability to regulate these emotions has gotten me fired from a couple of jobs. I was diagnosed with Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD) and Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). What I've learned from all my years of suffering from this and from my past year of implementing what I've learned from Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is to have a plan. I call it My Disorder Prevention Plan and it consists of a daily schedule that starts with a mindfulness exercise, eating/drinking healthy throughout the day, physical exercise (even if it's just for 20 min), spending time outside/getting fresh air, laughter (watching a funny movie) and self-soothing strategies (candles, bath, calming music). And then I finish the day with another mindfulness exercise. The hardest part for me is forcing myself to do these things but, once I start, I find that I feel really good about what I'm doing for myself and I keep going. I really wanted to share my experience and I hope that by sharing I could help someone else out there who struggles with PMS and unstable emotions the way I do.

Thanks,
MindfulTrish

This is so true I notice it last year after my 27th birthday,with every cycle came someone evil. Down and depression and mood swings and just down right evil for no reason,I so hate it and wish there was something to take for that I don't like it at all.

Girls:I wonder if the subconscious mind is messing with you again, not fight or flight, but possibility
a subconscious disappointment in the realization that you are not carrying a new baby?
The reason I say that is I have heard women talking when I was a small boy and some even cried and
felt like they were some kind of a failure for not being with child! (remember I'm saying subconscious)
Anyway I Think All of You are Wonderful for all you endure for this World. Peace

I feel like this a lot, I take venfexaline (Effexor) daily and I suffer from anxiety disorders. But I never could figure out why I was having such drastic changes before my period. I get hit with hard panic attacks, can't sleep at night and am on edge. I wonder if, now at age 42, if I should be taking some hormones to help me. I need to find something because this really effects my life.
