I’m tired of going through life feeling like i might just be okay but then That Time of The Month™ comes back around and i feel immensely depressed.

Ik it’s normal to be grumpy and cry loads on your period but i feel like mine takes it to next level. Like i’ll literally have no will to live and want to kill myself for a week or two every month and then come out the other side feeling completely fine and optimistic, only for it to be shattered with the next cycle.

my baseline mood rn is mild depression bc of financial anxiety and ive no idea how im going to hold down any sort of job to quell this anxiety when half the time i’m too miserable to even want to bother getting better.

i think my only choice here is meds but im super averse to medication and my past experiences with it havent made any improvement to my mental wellbeing/overall state of mind.

i’m so tired of telling myself “dont kill yourself dont kill yourself its just hormones” every month even when nothing is especially wrong in my life

Have you tried the mirena coil and a hormone patch as it did wonders for me.

eek coils scare me 😥everyone talks about how painful they are to get inserted & my mum used to have one which turned her into a massive bitch every period and she said it would make her bleed rlly heavy n cause bad cramps. I'm seeing my dr this week so i will see what options i have

The mirena and hormone patch were brilliant for me. It did not hurt having the procedure at all. I suppose I was lucky having the GP I did he was brilliant. I wish you well

Ugh that sounds tough! There's something called PMDD which from what I've read is like an elevated experience of PMS. I don't know very much about it, but perhaps you could have a read about it, this might be what you're experiencing? All the best for your appointment, hopefully you doctor can help you get to the point of relief! :hug:
