My name is Malin and I started my PMDD journey when my second son was born. After weaning him I had trouble with my temper, pending between being irritable, depressed, suicidal and raging. Between the endpoints I suffered from so much guilt and felt as the worst mom pondering whether my family would be better off without me.
Thankfully I had a family who supported my through my hardships, forgave my outbursts and comforted me when in the big dark.
Even more luckily I’m a behavioural scientist and my knowledge and experience have helped me tremendously in my journey of discovering PMDD and what to do about it. Watching a documentary about Dr. Jorge Lolas and his work angered me to the point I couldn’t keep this to myself. While I still struggle myself, it’s better and I want to share the knowledge I have hoping others will benefit as well.
I wish you all the best in your PMS/PMDD journey! Always remember there are people who love you and there are light at the end of the tunnel!
