Anyone with one or both of these things?
Background info: I was diagnosed with endo at 16. I have had severe and debilitating cramps since I started menstruating at age 11 and all they could do was prescribe birth control after birth control each greatly interfering with my hormones and I finally decided it wasn’t worth it so I stopped taking BC. I recently was admitted to the ER because of some non menstrual related cramps that turned out to be cysts, they went away but I have a feeling it won’t be the last I see of them because it certainly wasn’t the first. Fast forward to present day, it has taken the recognition of Fiance to realize that I have some tell tale signs that aunt flow will be arriving. I mean I am fully aware of my pms symptoms but it wasn’t until recently that I realized that these symptoms are far worse than they should be. Most of the time I am a happy go lucky, cheery person. However, for about 5 days leading up to my period I become this depressed, anxious, irritable monster. I hate to admit it because I am ashamed, but atleast once a month I feel so hopeless that I feel death is the only logical option. Luckily, I would NEVER act on these impulses but they are there and they scare me.
My point? Well I just wanted to know if anyone has any similar experiences and possibly overcame them? Are the two related?
