Time away from people when I need it
Staying busy
Matcha every morning
Absolutely need a great support system!
My children give me a reason to fight
Support from other women with PMDD on Facebook
Learning that daily exercise routine is very important
Get more active. Can be challenging because of other symptoms but getting physically active can reduce the negative symptoms.
Elimination of inflammatory food
Plenty of sleep and alone time
Taking Epival
My online support groups have been the absolute best! I used to feel all alone before connecting with other PMDD warriors.
Talking about how I feel and what I am going through. Not keeping it a secret.
My medication 20mg Prozac daily
Knowing what my issue is
Eating medication every day!

Accepting the disorder
Lovan pills
DIM (diindolylmethane) supplements
Total abdominal hysterectomy

Menstrual Supression Helps A LOT if you can find the right birth control
EVEROL 50 patches
Supplements and Essential Oils
Estrogen gel

Better management of my salt, water, sugar and vitamin in take based on tracking calendar.
