If there’s one thing I’ve learned about the days leading up to my menstrual cycle, it’s not to make any rash or hugely important decisions. Why? I suffer from PMDD, a severe form of PMS that, for many years, hugely complicated the symptoms I experienced as a woman with Borderline Personality Disorder.
Can you relate? Do you have a loved one who experiences this? Be sure to check in with your medical doctor or psychiatrist for ideas on what may help in your particular situation.
If you’d like to work on some Distress Tolerance skills alongside me to cope more effectively with the emotional distress that comes up during this time of the month, join me for this online DBT class, which starts in a couple of weeks.
Thanks for reading.
