I had a baby four months ago and all of a sudden I started to feel really depressed and irritable. I felt so tired with the way my life was and I felt stuck in my situation with the baby and work. Food did not taste very good to me and I just wanted to sleep. I have been reading a lot about Post-Partum depression, so I thought that was what I was feeling even though it was kind of late. I made an appt. with a LSW. Then, I got my period and I am feeling hopeful and overall just better. I kind of remember feeling this way before I got pregnant each month, but I just kept thinking that I was having normal emotional ups and downs. When I compare this up and down feeling with the more stable emotions that I had while I was pregnant, I think that something must be going on with my cycle. I just want to hear from others with PMDD in order to figure out if I am just feeling normal emotions or if PMDD is really at play.
