I always have this problem too, Mommy...about
a few days before my period, I feel anxious and tense and a few days after also. I did eventually go and get tested and my progestrine levels were very low. I also heard Vitex Chasteberry helps with hormonal levels but please ask your doctor before taking anything.
Stress is what is kicking your anxiety up into high gear. I know exactly how you feel...I am 25 years old and find out tomorrow if I lose my job or not...my husband is also deployed right now so needless to say, I'm a hot mess LOL! Keep your chin up...it does get better :)
