You can always come to the bee for a little moral support. We may not always agree with everything you say, but we’ll still be here for you, ya know? I know I was in a snit today because I feel like I’m pulling all of the wedding weight.

I had really, really bad PMS and cramping (sorry if that’s TMI) when I was in high school. The doctor said for my PMS they could do a low-dose anti-depressant or the pill, and I chose the pill and it’s helped. I still get whiny and have to cry at least ONE day over nothing at all, but it does help.

ADHD can be improved by diet changes and medicine if you do go that route. Your FI’s comments seem pretty hurtful, and maybe he doesn’t understand your ADHD/PMS and how it affects you. Once Fiance understood how terribly uncomfortable I was during ‘that time’ and that my mood just swings, he’s just gotten used to saying ‘I know honey, my real babe will be back in 3 days.’ He knows I’m not intentionally mean. I really suggest visiting the doctor, if not to get on medicine for the ADHD, at least to inquire about treating the PMS and maybe making lifestyle changes to help manage and control the ADHD. 

ETA: Just saw the no insurance issue. Many places have state/county clinics where you can get your pill prescription covered or at a very reduced cost. Perhaps see if you can visit a sliding-scale income or a public health clinic, I believe even Planned Parenthood does physicals and contraceptive planning.
