Sick Of Pmdd

I have always been irritable at "That time of month" and thought it was just PMS as my mum was the same. After having my son in 2006 I got worse MUCH WORSE !!!!!. It was when I had him that I thought I cant go on like this anymore. I thought I was going mad I would have no patience, couldn't be bothered with anything, sooooooo tired, angry, aggressive, felt hopeless and that my partner and son would be better off without me, then would cry because the love I have for my son was so intense, felt like walking out and just carry on walking, couldn't stand to be around people (especially strangers), anxiety and crying for hours on end.
I went to the docs and the nurse gave me the mini pill which made me feel like this all the time so I stopped taking it.
I then went to my GP who said it was PM DD and gave me fluoxetine which worked for the first few months then was not as effective so now I'm on the highest dose of Sertraline and they were fine for the first 3 months and I can feel myself slipping back. He has recommended I try Cognitive Behaviour Therapy which I will try. (He says he doesn't think it is linked to my period (DOH !!!!!!)

THE ONLY WAY I CAN DESCRIBE IT IS SPLIT PERSONALITY 2 WEEKS OK 2 WEEKS MENTAL (I KNOW WHEN ITS IS HAPPENING AND THERE IS NOTHING I CAN DO ABOUT IT)

At least my symptoms are not as bad as they were but they are not ideal.

I would like to talk to someone who has the same experience it may just keep me sane !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   :)
