    I know exactly how you feel last week before i got my period my mind was losing it the same way yours is. I had to coach myself through the day telling myself good things. From my mind to the symptoms. Yesterday my period ended and i am feeling a bit better thank God. I find that having good company around or talking on the phone helps. TV at times doesn't work for me because still my mind wonders and its worse when something horrific happens because my body reacts and i get anxiety. It is so strange. My emotions are all over the place. Know that you are not alone. We all are suffering. Hugs to you

    You are not crazy!!!! In the beginning I know 'it's' coming and all these things with it. Yes it makes me anixious too because it's 2 weeks of feeling like crap. I too have the low feelings and then anger and rage. I just take all my supplements hoping one day it will subside. In my younger years I never had this much trouble--- so why now?

      Oh gosh yes.. I get extremely exhausted.. It's like my body is preparing for all this stuff and I'm exhausted OR it's when I'm so angry all my energy goes to that. I have no idea but yes very tired among other things. I have had really bad cramps too where it's like contractions-- I then have to take IB pro and lay down.. So don't panic-- it's just a process. For me it's about a 2 week process from beginning to end with all these symptoms then the day after my period I'm usually OK for a couple weeks before it starts again. I started writing down all that I go thru just so I can compare to next month---

    Yes, this is totally normal! You are not crazy, but it just feels like you are. My period is now totally unpredictable: cycles ranging from 17 to 35 days with periods lasting 2 to 12 days. I am turning 51 later this year.

    I have periods of time when I feel happy, carefree, optimistic, and just like my old self, but I also have times of real struggle: rage out of nowhere, crying spells, frustration, fear. The list goes on.

    When I feel good, I believe that it is over, but when it turns, I feel terrified that I won't find a way out of the abyss that I find myself in.

    I have been dealing with intense symptoms for two years, so I am hoping that I am nearing the end, especially as my period has gone crazy!

    I just started taking plant-based calcium, as there is a lot of clinical data which shows significant improvement with PMS and PMDD by taking this mineral. You might want to give it a try.

    It is so draining to have such out of control emotions, but it is a phase, so it will end one day.

    Sending you hugs and understanding xo
