I just want to stomp my feet, like a 2 year old, cry "no fair" and scream. For real. I know this will pass but everything sucks right now and I have this big lump in my throat. I never had PMS until I had kids. Now 10 days every month are nightmarish. I want to punch something, I want to cry, I want to sob, I want to run away and everyone is just using me, this is how the world feels to me right now. My PMS has been getting worse and worse as I get older, is there anything a doctor can do about this or am I just being a wimp, does anybody know????

I had a hard time with that too. I call it "chopping carrots" because I remember one really bad day, I was cutting up big carrots to cook for dinner and I started yelling at someone and I remember taking that butcher knife and just wacking the ***p out of those carrots and they were flying accross the room.

Anti-depressants did help me. Thank the good Lord!

Hi Condoleezaiscool!
Wow sounds so familar!!!! I was having such crying spells about 3 days before I would start with awful headaches that would last for 2-3 days.  The crying was getting so out of control that I felt it was effecting my family, I went to see the dr.  he put me on Lexapro, I have only been on it for about 2 weeks, but I feel so much better!  Anxious to see if it helps around "that time"  Just really hoping for no weight gain!!! 
Talk to your  Dr. no one should have to try to cope with something like this if there is help!!!  I know I felt so weak that I couldn't control my feelings, I would be sitting at my desk at work and just start crying!  My son would ask why I was so unhappy all the time, broke my heart!!!
You are not alone!   Good luck and let me know if you decide to talk with you dr.  By the way I am 44 is this your age range?

Never Alone
                          I have walked the road of recovery
                          for sometime now
                          I look behind and see progress
                          though slow and alone it was
                          I look foward and see no end
                          I am alone.......
                          then a hand touched each shoulder so tender
                          so I looked to both sides and I found friends
                          who dont walk behind nor ahead
                          but by my side
                          I am not alone.......
                          and through my endless journey
                          I hope to see them reach     
                          the end of thier road of recovery
                          I will always be here
                          but  NEVER ALONE
                          I walk with my friends

yeah the thing is I take GNC vitamins, I've researched everything and I've tried every natural thing you can think of, Valerian root, extra calcium, multi's, fish oil, extra B vitamins, extra iron in case I'm anemic, I eat so healthy I eat raw oatmeal with flaxeed granules w/ breakfast, I eat salmon every other day, lots of protein, fruits, vegetables, pomegranate juice, I work out ever day (sometimes twice a day) I feel like by asking for help its like I'm giving up. But you know I really can't wait around for this to get any worse, one of the hardest parts of my depression is asking for help. Its hard, I always try to prove that I'm strong and can deal with anything, I try to put on the strong single mother facade but I do need help this time.

hi condoleeza
I have really bad PMS too, it makes the depression even worse the week of and week after my period. It's like you cant catch a break! Because of my anemia my gyn gave me an option of stopping my periods for 6 months to give my other doc a chance to raise my hemoglobin levels, I'm still waiting on my doc to decide but I think I may do it if he agrees, and I am wondering if that stops the PMS, cuz if it does then maybe thats an option for you?
