Advice for relief of severe PMS symptoms?

Mew Asked: Advice for relief of severe PMS symptoms?

Advice for relief of severe PMS symptoms?
I need serious advice. Lately especially I have been a mess 2 or so weeks before my period. I am anxious, prone to panic attacks, depressed, irritable, and I can become enraged over the smallest of things. Then I'll cry and it's all too overwhelming. I've always had pretty severe PMS but never anything this bad. It's like I just want to fade out the rest of the world and hide away forever… ):

Taking care of my son is especially difficult during these times as he is rather energetic and demanding. He is also prone to bursts of anger and tantrums which don't help with the whole anxiety aspect of everything…and then when I get angry, it makes me feel guilty, which makes me more anxious…it's a viscious cycle and it sucks. ): I don't get so angry that I hit anyone or throw anything or anything like that, but I will scream and yell for a minute before I calm myself down. Then I usually have to separate myself for a while and depend on my boyfriend to take care of my son, which has put a burden on our relationship.

I don't know if it has something to do with the winter months, but I feel so stir crazy! My mind is so fuzzy and my emotions are so haywire! I don't want any meds, as I tried some Xanax, but it made me have insomnia where I couldn't sleep for like 3 days at a time. I stopped taking those and have since been able to sleep, but I still wake up at 3 or 4am every day for some reason, which is weird for me since I used to sleep in until 12 or later. This winter I became so out of whack I don't know wtf happened.

I've been doing yoga 3 to 5 times a week and I've stopped drinking coffee and eating sweets, for the most part. When I eat sugary food I notice my mood worsens and I become more angry then too.

I've been taking vitamin b complex, calcium and vitamin d, magnesium, and valerian root or melatonin for sleep. I am feeling a little better but I can't live like this forever. I only get one week a month where I feel halfway normal.

All I wanna do is hide, and I need some real advice. Anything that works for people, please let me know! (:

Would marijuana be a good treatment for anxiety?

Christian Slavik Asked: Would marijuana be a good treatment for anxiety?

I have had untreated anxiety since I was 16 but it has become more severe in the past couple of months (I am now 22). Panic attacks and insomnia have become a norm with small periods of slight depression. I've been treated with many anxiety medications but if they don't spill me into a sever depressed state it seems they either do nothing or I get hooked. I don't wanna make an appointment and pay $100 just so the doctor can say marijuana won't help… Even if its simply for my insomnia and or panic attacks… I've had it with all these pills =/

Panic attacks/depression. What kind of meds can I get prescribed?

holypeachesandcream8 Asked: Panic attacks/depression. What kind of meds can I get prescribed?

I'm going to the doctor soon with my mom to get medicine for my depression/anxiety/panic attacks/insomnia. I was referred there by a shrink. Anyways, the shrink said maybe I should talk to my dr about taking a 'take as needed' med for the panic attacks because i dont have severe anxiety all the time I just get the occasional panic attack (maybe 1 every couple weeks?)I heard that benzodiazepines help with that? (Xanax,valium, etc.)But I also have depression so can I not take antidepressants and benzos together? I know Xanax and Valium are very strong meds so are there weaker benzos for younger patients like me? (im only 15) Thanks!

if somebody who uses marijuana for a eating disorder, headaches, and insomnia?

bee Asked: if somebody who uses marijuana for a eating disorder, headaches, and insomnia?

and only purchases what i would call personal use, (dime bag) could they be arrested if caught in a state where it is illegal without a medical license. i do not have my license, but dont you think that is kind of wrong? the person basically needs it to keep living or they have difficulty in eating, and sleeping, therefore they have a massive headache. i dont believe in swallowing a pill when three hits off a joint will have me feeling way better and i can still focus..

please no hate, i just want peoples opinion. and dont complain to me how marijuana is bad when i use it daily and im still alive unlike my cousin who used prescription pills who passed away

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO A TEENAGE GIRL WHO HATES HER BODY?

DYING TO BE SKINNY Asked: WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO A TEENAGE GIRL WHO HATES HER BODY?

what advice would you give to a teenage girl who hates her body?but this girl, she doesnt just hate it. she despises it. its not the same as every other teenager. its different. her stats:
current weight: 123 pounds
lowest: 100ish
highest: 137
height: 5'7

this girl despises her body. every day she wakes up and cries, because of her body. all she thinks about every SINGLE WAKING SECOND OF HER LIFE is how disgusting her body is. how fat she is. how she is humongous. there is not ONE feature she likes, or even "accepts" about her body. she despises herself.
she has dealt with anorexia, bulimia, compulsive exercise disorder, binge eating disorder, insomnia, depression, self harm and EDNOS before. oh and a severe case of body distortion which, clearly, is still going on. also when she was in grade 3-5 she was abused by her parents and siblings (and still is today) how DISGUSTING AND FAT SHE WAS. and still is called fat and ugly today. maybe that did something to her.
now she cries for hours and hours in her room because she is so fat and ugly. she refuses to wear clothes other than sweatpants and sweatshirts. she refuses to go out. she refuses to go clothes shopping. its like her life is on pause until she gets skinny. every time she sees a girl who is thinner than her she starts to cry.

what advice would you give this girl?

Do I have insomnia or any other sleep related disorders?

TheGallowsBird Asked: Do I have insomnia or any other sleep related disorders?

I'm 19 years old. For the past 4 years, 8 months out of the year my sleep patterns will go off track. I must admit I am a night person, I find I'm more alert and have more energy at night. However, it doesn't go with my work schedule.

This will start randomly one day and last for no certain amount of weeks or months (this is a day when I don't have work obviously)
9pm – 11pm: I go to sleep, either actually go to bed or drift into sleep on the couch but only for a couple of hours
11pm – 7am: after 2 hours sleep I wake up at 11pm, try to go back to sleep, but stay up til 7am
7am – 1pm: after being awake for 8 hours, I sleep for 6 and I'm drowsy for the rest of the day
1pm – 4pm: I might have a nap around 4pm and I'll still be sleepy until I go to sleep. If I do have this nap, I'll usually won't go to sleep til the next morning at 7am.

I have tried just staying up all night and all day so I could go to to sleep that night at 8 and hopefully will sleep til morning. Did not work. After 24 hours of being awake and at work (I'm a waitress and I'm always busy there) I swear I was starting to go insane, things I was saying, what I was doing etc!

Here I am at 2pm, just woke up an hour ago and seriously wondering what is wrong with me. I should mention that when I do go to sleep, it's a nice deep sleep.

Do I have some sort of sleep disorder? Thank you so much in advanced, I really want to sort this out!
