Sorry if this is TMI but what the heck am I supposed to do about the role my hormones play in all this? I’m diagnosed with general anxiety disorder but I’ve always had OCD tendencies and actually pretty strong BPD-like tendencies which have recently taken center stage. I take Zoloft and I see a therapist and 3 weeks per month I’m my normal self and I can think clearly. The first week of the last three months I’ve been a wreck! It’s like my brain is hijacked and I’m not even in control anymore. I try to supplement with Xanax. (But it’s not prescribed to me so oops I really shouldn’t I just get desperate). I don’t feel understood. My bf takes my little meltdowns as fact and what I truly believe even after I can see clearly and apologize. He thinks I use PMS as an excuse to make my outbursts seem less my fault. I know that they’re my fault but I’m also just learning how to stop them. My mom says if it’s just PMS that causes these symptoms then I can handle that. I think to myself that’s like 25% of my life and plus I can do a lot of damage to relationships when in that state. Does anyone else experience this?
