PMDD Vs. Relationships
I was diagonsed with PMDD a year ago by my doctor & was put on birth control. While the pill works for all the physical symptoms & most of my emotional symptoms, a week before my period without fail I get these feelings of detachment, depression, and apathy.
My boyfriend is a very sweet guy and he knows about my PMDD, but its still difficult to explain to him that while I do love him, for one week it feels as if I don't. I don't want to be around him, or talk to him, much less be affectionate.
Is PMDD putting a strain on anyone else's relationship? If so, how are you dealing? Thanks :)
