From a Guys Point of View...
I am a simple guy who truly loves his fiance. She is the woman of my dreams for approximately 3 weeks out of the month. 10 to 14 days before her period she begins to start displaying her moodiness, anger, and horrible comments toward me. It wasn't until last night that I finally started to research PMS.
As a guy, you are told (since you are a teenager) that a woman has a period, and that in most cases she will turn evil. Yesterday I detected her change when she began complaining that I had not called her during my lunch hour (although I had sent her approximately 10 text messages either telling her that I loved her or describing my day). Then she arrived at my house (after going to bed bath & beyond) with two different bathroom rugs. She had already determined in her mind which one she wanted. Stupid me, I selected the other one. After that our entire evening went down hill. I looked at my cellphone and noticed that it was already the 25th of June, and that was 13 days before her estimated period date (July 6). It has been an on going situation since I met her. I started researching Yaz, and looked into other prescribed medication. I keep reminding her that it's all her period, but she does not want to admit it. The day of her period, she turns back into the wonderful woman that I want to marry. I truly believe that she has PMDD, she has displayed all symptoms except suicide (that's a good thing).
It seems that the only person she is displaying the PMDD symptoms to, is me. why??? I try to do everything perfect, and try to show her my love for her. I cook, take care of her two daughters, her family adores me, I take care of her extremely well sexually, and everything that goes on in a normal relationship. what else am I missing? Once she starts getting PMessy, she abandons me and treats me as if I didn't exist. And if she noticed me, then I would turn into her worst enemy.
At times, she has pushed me into considering leaving the relationship, but I love her and her two kids. In 2003, I lost my own child to leukemia (died at the age of 2 years, 5 months, and 3 days). I know what it is to lose a child and a family, so I definitely don't want to lose the one that I have now.
I have already told her that she needs to seek medical attention, but she thinks that I'm the crazy one. Everyone can see it, except her.
YES, PMS and PMDD... S U C Ks!!!Hello everyone! It has been a long journey. It has been 4 and a half years since I created this post. I've since then suffered a separation from my then fiance. It really was bad. Then we got back together, battled through many hard moments. My fiance and I got married Valentine's day 2010. We are about to celebrate our 3rd wedding anniversary. The girls are now 10 & 12 years old. After a very rocky start to marriage, we have come to learn to live and accept each other. We have a good family. The 12 year old has her menstrual cycle at the same time as her mother (lucky me), but doesn't show any signs of pmdd. The little one prays every night that she never gets her period (LOL). We now pick on my wife, because we know when she's about to get her period., but she still doesn't realize it. My wife has change a lot, and has put forth her best efforts at controlling her inner monster. There's hope,Not that we are problem free, but I've managed to have a good life next to the woman that I love.
