How do you have your friends and family help you when dealing with the lowest of the low moods from PMDD? I feel like all I want to do is sleep and isolate until I’m better, but it’s making me worse. How do you get people to understand? I feel like the increased sensitivity to rejection makes it even harder to reach out and work to communicate.

      My husband knows when I say "I'm luteal" it means to be kinder and more patient with me.

      My therapist said give people road maps on how to help you before you get lost in yourself. Ask in the hard moments, “hey I’m struggling right now, can you bring me back to [whatever best helps you]?”

      Educate them on the things you go through when your PMDD is showing. Let them know how it's different from regular PMS, a much more severe form. Tell them it's something you can't really control and that you're doing your best to manage your symptoms. Ask for support and be specific with what you need support in.
