I have noticed that, since having children, and getting a little older---that a week before I menstruate, I get really UP-N-DOWN! OMG---I get really impatient, really anxious, nauseous---panicky, etc..... then, a couple/few days later----I get my period!
I am close to 40 (a-hem)---and I read once that you can be "peri-menopausal" for 10-15 years before hitting menopause.
So, my question is:
1) Do any of you experience more anxiety/panic around the time of the "month"
2) Any articles you know of about this kind of thing?
