I am always researching to find better ways to cope with our changing and raging hormones. I stopped googling and researching things that do nothing but drive my anxiety down the runway to losing my mind. We have enough on our plates to deal with.
I know that what might work for you may not work for someone else as we are all different, but I came across some useful information that just may help someone. Use it to your specifications, research it if you'd like, but I just wanted to put it out here.
