Hi I'm MO, and PMS turns me into a brazen psychopath, ask me a question!?
You get a lump in your throat type deal.
But yeah it's like... not my preference to feel this way.
I'm just liveblogging my thoughts about it because it's just... honestly so bad. Lmao.

It's so bad, and I can't. I just can't.

Once again...

I Can't
It's definitely a rollercoaster, highs and lows... I guess that is called mood swings.




That's literally me.

Quote:Premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) is a severe, sometimes disabling extension of premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Although PMS and PMDD both have physical and emotional symptoms, PMDD causes extreme mood shifts that can disrupt daily life and damage relationships.



That is 100% me.

It's just so retarded because I've been coming to this conclusion over and over again since I was 15 or 16.

Quote:For some women, the severity of symptoms increases over time and lasts until menopause. For this reason, a woman may need treatment for an extended time. Medicine dosage may change throughout the course of treatment.

Oh. My. Goddd.

I cannot fucking believe this!!!

I had theorized in one of my most recent filmed autobiographical clips that this seems like a condition that could worsen over time instead of get better, until you're basically OLD... if EVER!!!!!!!

And now, to see this?!

Like yeah, I've known about PMDD as a condition for a really long time and even concluded in the past it was totally my problem. But the specifics of it, I did not remember.

This is just bad because it goes along with my theory as to WHAT causes this...

I have written about it before to some extent: https://www.sectual.com/thread-55.html


As a female you are ASSAULTED by hormones which influence your body/mind on a monthly basis.

Conceive, then suffer hard. Don't conceive, then suffer hard.

It's like your body/mind will try anything to make the terrible pain go away and I think this is why people REALLY conceive.
Is it worth suffering through?? That's the only question I guess. I choose to create artistic things using this terrible force, instead of creating human life with it.
It's like you're being consumed in the nuclear bowels of hell on a soul level.
With screaming.
Oh fuck, babe.

I'm sure you've looked into this ad nauseam, but I thought I would share some real-life data just in case it might help. I know of two women who suffer(ed) from this, and in both cases they radically changed their diets and began going to the gym in one case, running, hiking and yoga in the other. Both of their diets were fucking garbage left over from their youth, but remaining as habits, such as high fat/sugar/cafeine sodas like Mountain Dew, Doritos, lots of drive-thru fast food, energy drinks, basically all junk food, like classic junk food, and then would sit in front of their computers for literally HOURS at a time. Both of them eliminated all processed foods from their diets, began focusing more on protein intake and overarching nutrition. The one that went to the gym is now a fucking personal trainer and her body is absurdly in shape, and the other is a Yoga instructor, and both of them had the symptoms of pmdd massively reduced, if not eliminated. I haven't spoken to either of them since the pandemic started, so I'll check in and see if I can glean any more information.
Yeah, I've thought about it and considered the different times in my life when I was active with a great diet...

When this started at its worst a few years ago, my diet wasn't bad (lacked enough meat if anything), aside from sugar in my coffee, there was nothing very excessive and the least junk food or fast food I've ever eaten in my life...

And I was still super fucked up. Adequate exercise may be what's missing from the equation but I really have to say the same for my exercise levels in that era too, it wasn't bad.

I'm thinking there's a nutritional deficiency, but definitely should exercise more. Dancing is my preferred method of exercise, but I also like walking and climbing stairs. Other than that, I take on the Paris Hilton attitude toward exercise.
Any diet or environmental factors that can influence the hormones is a suspect here... not claiming I know exactly what does or doesn't cause it. But I do think for me, I don't get enough of some type of nutrient.

Try a multivitamin and multimineral tablet.
Hands Up!  Panties Down!
Yeah that is a really good idea... I will look into the mineral aspect a little more.
I've been reading up on this and a couple of things really stood out to me:

• Salmon with brown rice could be a very helpful addition, because it has both protein and tryptophan, two things you need.
• Dance in your yard. Yet again, two things you need in one: sunlight and exercise. Put on some retrowave and dance aerobically for 15 minutes.

Both of these things combined will then yield a better night's sleep, which is another super important facet of this.
Good thing I love salmon! Never had it with brown rice, at least not that I remember.

Getting enough sun is hard for me.
Dude you need to lay off the female hormones.
How much coffee do you drink a day, generally?
I drink too much caffeine these days!!!

That is one thing I can definitely say for sure...

So this has given me a good idea of how I can easily tweak my daily behaviors to mitigate a good 10-15% of the super terrible symptoms.

The rest is (I believe) a nutrient situation.

I really appreciate the fresh perspective with this, thanks for taking the time to help me out here.
I am very excited to dance... I have a huge appetite for it but sadly I broke (?) a toe as a child, it was never really set right (?) and still causes discomfort after walking or dancing a lot. Or just standing a lot.

It sucks when an injury causes us to then further experience other forms of malaise. That said, I'd be willing to bet money that there's something out there, some kind of medical accoutrement that will allow you to dance with manageable discomfort, or even straight-up comfort. Dancing outdoors is a no-brainer otherwise, right? Getting the daylight you need while doing something you love? 

As far as the excessive caffeine intake goes; obviously that's going to fuck your natural sleeping rhythm up, and not only that, more than two cups a day has been shown in studies to compromise your body's serotonin production, so it's a double whammy, and then you're in a vicious cycle of needing more and more caffeine. Two cups of coffee or tea per day max, and nothing at all during the second half of the day. Energy drinks are the kiss of death. Fucking horrifying. Almost as bad as getting vaxxed. 

By taking away the things that are hurting you and adding things that will help, the combination should at least have some value in regard to dealing with what you're going through. It's every fucking month, so it's probably worth the effort, right? I just say that out of a desire to see you feeling better.
