I have, admittedly, had a rough time and some depression. It’s treated with medicine and I feel like I’m doing well on that front. Lately, I have had worsening and worsening PMS. For most of my life, I had bad cramps. However, they only lasted about 24-48 hours. Now, I have PMS symptoms for a good 2 weeks. I’ve been in some kind of extended PMS situation. I’m cramping. I’m more irritable than I’ve ever felt. I felt pure rage at work today and had to come home. I couldn’t stand the sight of my co-workers (very nice people who I like and enjoy). I’ve been foggy headed and unfocused (which I attributed to the depression and the meds). The internet tells me that PMS and rage are symptoms of peri-menopause. I have a gyn appointment to confirm, but anyone else experience this? I cried today for no reason because I’m irrationally angry and feel like I’m going crazy. I’m in my early 40's. I feel like I’ve been taken over by an alien.
