Absolutely!  I remind myself it is just for that time.  Doing that helps to keep me calm.

Me too!  I hate that time of month.  My symptoms all get worse around that time, and I have a harder time talking myself out of it then too.  It's just hormones and luckily it passes!

Yes!! It drives me crazy, I have to tell myself over and over, just that time of the month, it will pass soon. I have had panic attacks over thinking I was bleeding to much and then next month over not bleeding enough. I am a mess around that time of the month. My poor hubby helps out best he can and trys to keep me happy when I go through it but he still gets the short end of the stick.

For those of you with hormonal problems around your period, is it pain? Or just an increase in anxiety/panic?

I ask because some people with mood problems around their menses have Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder, which is defined as ANXIETY, labile mood, depression, irritability, panic attacks, and some other symptoms. This is NOT like PMS, PDD is a serious, disabling disease and REQUIRES TREATMENT. Some women can experience such terrible depression and anxiety that they develop thoughts of suicide. However, PDD is extremely variable between every woman, so just because you don't experience ALL of these symptoms, doesn't mean you don't have this.

For all of your experiencing these problems, when does it occur?? Do you all keep track of your menses? PDD normally strikes the 2 weeks prior to your first day of bleeding (Day 1). PDD is SEVERE and can interfere with daily life, it is NOT like PMS. Think of it as PMS x 100.

There is hope for you women that experience this. Women's hormones are involved in this, and it CAN be treated effectively. Recent studies indicate that up to 80% of women experience symptoms like these that are severe enough to disturb the women. Around 10% of these women have PDD. The majority of women who experience PDD are in their 30's and 40's.

PLEASE Email me for further info on this and the symptoms ...If you care too
Rehabnurse........I edited out the symtoms and asked the women to email you for further info on this .....As you know there are many with Health Anxiety here and  would rather they not get all worked up w/o checking with doc and knowing all of info ( I know other forums do put this type of info down but I am sure you know what I am talking about  .......but they can or are able to get the input from you IF thats okay .....IF not put your own lil blurb in there and I HOPE you understand where I am coming from here....PLEASE do not think I am being overbearing or rude I just worry about the HA's on here seeing and then believing they have this ya know
Thanks for great input ........I dont have anything lol left there so I have no worries in that dept ......
Take care and stay with us you are an asset to this forum .......
Have a great day .........LYN 

Perhaps you could get on one of those Birth Control Pills that allow you to skip your periods. Those helped me when I had this, but now that I don't have a uterus, I am okay. Now, at 30, I am going through menopause. sad

Please see your OB/GYN or Primary Doctor and ask to be screened for this disorder, and/or tell them about your increased symptoms during your period. Then you can all be tested to see what the problem is, and they can adjust your medication and/or other treatments so you can feel better!!

I hope this helped, sorry for the super long post, I hope you all find something to help you feel better.

Oh, Heavens yes the symptoms get worse! I bottom out with my depression, I'm excessively paranoid (more so than usual) and my anxiety just increases. Probably the hormones or something.
I have Crohn's Disease, panic disorder, paranoid personality disorder, and major depression. Fun.
