I have suffered from anxiety for two years now. I am certain I have pmdd as well. I live a stressful life which leads to depression, especially around my period… Some nights, I have a million thoughts going through my head, I have to focus on something to stop these racing thoughts before I force myself to go to sleep. Some days I have control over my emotions and some days I don’t. Every day my attitude is different. Sometimes things really bother me, and some times I don’t let it get to me…. My husband says I have ocd… I am afraid to start meds if it’s all in my head and I don’t really need them.. How can I find out if I have a chemical imbalance? I know some of my family members have mental health issues?? Can’t I go to the doc and get on yak birth control? Won’t that help? I am afraid if I get on something like zoloft, I won’t be able to control my actions or the way I act…. Thanks for the help.
Do NOT self diagnose yourself.
Go to a doctor —- mental health doctor and let them run tests on you. Don’t ask US. Ask a professional.
