I feel like I’m going insane. I go to therapy every two weeks, and in one session It’s like everything is going well and the next I’ll be having thoughts of harming myself. I almost feel like it correlates to my hormonal cycle, like some exacerbated PMS. I don’t lash out at people around me, but I isolate myself more. I have no idea where to turn, if I should go to a doctor, and if I do, what kind. I have a hormonal IUD, but had been on system-wide birth control for 5 years. I’m 23 so I feel like everything should be expected or evened out, but I just don’t know anymore. I looked online to see if I might have PMDD but I have no idea.

    i have pmdd! i’d highly recommend tracking your mood/physical symptoms every day so you can see any correlations. i use the clue app, but any way that works for you is great. if you’re seeing correlations, feel free to talk to your primary care provider or other doctor and they’ll refer you to a gynecologist.
