I am usually int he chronic pain forum, but since I suffer from anxiety and depression, I thought I would check it out. Then I saw your post - it is like that for me with PMS too! I get so sad and anxious - like the world is coming to an end - then PMS is over and everything is right again. I try to remind myself that its just PMS, but that doesn't seem to help much. It was better when I was on the BCP, but I can't take it right now due to other meds I am taking for pain. At least M&Ms - peanut especially - are available 24/7!!
Anyway, hang in there!
