Re: severe pms... pushing away loved ones
I'm in the same boat...I get severly depressed when I have pms. Suicidal urges haunt me and I'm soooo irritable and short with people, my friends and family....everyone bugs me...I HATE being that way, cause I know I hurt people. as soon as I start my period it ends. I usually try to warn people, I have pms, just leave me alone for a few days, (or a week). I have a # of things that change during pms, I cant sleep, of course pain, I'm bloated, I feel like the ugliest person in the world, I get acne, and I cry at everything!!!! Once I was watching the Fresh Prince and Will graduated from college, it was supposed to be a kind of touching episode, normally I'd be..whatever, but I had pms and burst into tears over a tv character graduating from college! I couldnt stop crying. now I lol over that.
Recently, I found an old pic of my ex who I'm totally over (he was a jerk) but I started crying hysterically missing him...the next day I was like, what on earth?
Sometimes I've written suicide notes, sometimes I write letters to my good friends or family members about why they are bugging me so bad and i cant talk to them anymore. (I've never sent them..I'm so glad!) That's NOT me!!!
So yes, hormones can cause drastic changes in you! You are certainly not alone...in fact I have pms now and have been pretty depressed, but not THAT bad.
