Does anyone know where the off switch is for my uterus and ovaries? Or even how to restore it to factory settings? I seem to have lost the manual of what to do when it is defective. K, thanks.

I've been meaning to post about PMDD for a while now. In the past few months, it's become more apparent that I have a lot of the symptoms of PMDD. 2/3 weeks before my period, I get minute cramps, intense dreams/nightmares which can throw me out of reality, hypersomnia, severe depression to the point I don't even want to eat, and basically a loss of control and faith in my life. I went to the Docs today, and I am set to try out hormonal pill microgynon, to either regulate my periods, or prevent them for 3 months and then break. Will see how it goes. I've also been using the app 'MeVpmdd' to track my symptoms daily, really good to have your data stored so it's easy for professionals to look at. 🖤🔪💊🤞🏽💞 pmdd pmddsupport mypmddstory period periodblood hormones mentalhealth health depression microgynon premenstrual premenstrualdysphoricdisorder mevpmdd mevpmddapp

• WHAT’S YOUR MINDSET? • PMDD symptoms can feel like self implosion. You may feel you have been stripped bare and be left with a hollow shell of what once was. • • Once the house burns the house has burnt. • • As we move through the cleanup process this is the opportunity to look at our shit. When we invite it in, the faster we’ll heal. • • We begin to pick up pieces and may realize those pieces no longer serve us. • • Rather than clinging to the pieces, I invite you to shift your paradigm and realize the truest potential of your future. • • You can heal, and you will. • • Love, Katie 🙏🏼💛 pmdd pmddawareness pmddawarenesschallenge pmddsupport pmddpositive holisticpmdd pmddpeeps pmddwarrior premenstrualdysphoricdisorder mentalhealth mentalhealthawareness gratitude slowdown womensupportwomen womenshealth helpeachothergrow support supporteachother metaphor mindset paradigm paradigmshift shiftyourmindset shiftyourparadigm gratitute grateful

TransformationTuesday ⠀⠀ Old Me (2008) vs. New Me (2019) ⠀⠀ The first photo was taken during a time in my life when I was very unhappy in my first marriage. I was married to a man who refused to work & contribute financially. We were only 22, & I was bringing home $350 every couple weeks, along with some random Air Force pay & that’s what we were living on. MY income which barely existed. I was emotionally & physically abused on top of it add that to the list of reasons I was depressed. ⠀⠀ This led to me basically not eating. When I did eat, it was bread & butter & a protein shake. We didn’t have the money for food. It was rent or food. I chose a roof over my head. My ex-husband ALLOWED THIS LIFESTYLE. He truly didn’t give a shit.🤷🏻‍♀️ ⠀⠀ I was down to 83 pounds at my lightest, in 2009. I had friends asking me if I was anorexic. I had the military lecturing me about my low body fat percentage. I was at a loss I had no support at home & I felt so alone. ⠀⠀ 👊🏼New me- NOW me. I am fit. I am healthy. I have definition in my muscles. I am with a man that LOVES me & shares a love of health & fitness with me, he practically FORCES me to eat & always cooks for us to ensure I get a good meal in because he gets me. He understands my slightly poor appetite & how my stress manifests in ways that prevent me from eating. He’s the real deal! 🙌🏼❤️ ⠀⠀ Y’all, I’m living the life I always wanted. 🙏🏼 ⠀⠀ What I do has changed the lives of SO many people. I have used these plans- workouts, meal plans, etc- for almost a year now & have completely revamped my health & my LIFE & I’m watching women in TheHighVibeTribe do the same. It’s freaking MAGICAL. ✨✨✨ ⠀⠀ Ready to improve your health, have some accountably, or even just get a PLAN? Drop a DM & let’s chat. 💕

Today was a freaking rollercoaster, ya’ll. I got my kid to school, had a coffee, did a ton of (digital) work (for both my small businesses), I ate breakfast without wanting to barf after, I planted our back garden and watered the lawn, had another coffee, vacuumed, did some more business, and then picked my kid up in the sunshine! I was productive AF and I didn’t even nap! I was drafting an Instagram post in my head, about how well us chronically sick folk take legit advantage of the good days - And then 5pm rolled around. Whomp. And by whomp I mean SMASH, like a fucking truck. The PMS has been creeping in since the weekend, but tonight I finally flared like a MF. We’d already planned a whole family Costco trip, and I like being in charge at Costco, so I sucked it up, but I regret it while walking down the chip aisle. I was wandering around rubbing my swollen tummy and taking deep breaths like a poor pregnant woman, and eventually hung over my cart for a semi-cry. I survived, of course, and took home a small haul of spectacular ’ books and new flowers for the week (and quinoa salad) but man, I don’t know if I’ve ever had such a bipolar day. Knocking so much off my to-do list feels so good, but nothing feels good-we then bed.

Molasses | self portrait | Without Disguise | 2019 Today is one of those days where my body feels like molasses and it’s a struggle to get out of my PJs. My mood is fine. I’m overall content and not even that stressed, but this week I feel like a turtle and all my actions just seem to take longer. Last week I went to yoga everyday of the week and I’ve been getting plenty of sleep, so it’s not like I haven’t been doing plenty of self care. Sometimes depression isn’t an emotion. It’s more of a fog. Anyway, it’s mentalhealthawarenessmonth and I wanted to make at least one post to talk about the behind the scenes.

I live with mental illness! I struggle everyday to push on to hold it all together! I have so many people that rely on me to be strong everyday. I have to keep my head up for family and my job. I am a mother, a wife, daughter, sister, granddaughter, friend, and a CNA! Labeled for Borderline Personality Disorder, Depression, PTSD, OCD, PMDD, and ADHD. (With Postpartum Depression currently) I’ve waited a long time to talk about what’s really wrong with me and for so long I was scared. I get judged for being “crazy” and it’s not that I am crazy! It’s the label! When I shut down emotionally I won’t reach out for help, I will hide in my own head to try and figure out how I’m “supposed” to reach. Being around people with happy go lucky moods makes me feel better. I come around someone in a bad mood and I will be in a bad mood. There are so many things I have destroyed. From items to friendships to even jobs because of the times I think I’m ok without meds. It’s not easy everyday when you are only so strong inside! 💜 mayismentalawernessmonth bpd depression adhd ocd pmdd ptsd

P M S : While it has been “normalized” by popular culture, and is VERY common, PMS is not part of a normal, healthy menstrual cycle. Having cyclical fluctuations in your mood, energy and desire IS completely normal - that’s part of the beauty of being a woman - our fluid and changeable nature. However, if you’re having symptoms that are outside of these normal, fairly mild fluctuations, and/or are interfering with your life - it’s time to address it! PMS symptoms like significant mood issues (anxiety, depression, etc), headache, breast tenderness, digestive issues, acne, fluid retention/weight gain or pain of any kind are not something that you have to just “deal with” because you are a woman. These are actually typical signs of hormone imbalance and are a great reason to give your body some hormone balancing support. Use these as signals to give yourself some love. ❤️ pms pmsproblems pmdd menstrualcycle womenshealth hormones

Premenstrual syndrome is the name given to a collection of physical and emotional symptoms that may be experienced by a women in the 1-2 weeks leading up to menstruation At least 30% of women are thought to experience PMS although in my experience this number is A LOT higher What are the symptoms of PMS? Emotional symptoms include: ✖️Irritability ✖️Anxiety and/or Depression ✖️Mood swings ✖️Low libido . Physical symptoms include: ✖️Breast swelling or tenderness ✖️Fluid retention ✖️Bloating ✖️Acne ✖️Fatigue ✖️Insomnia ✖️Constipation or diarrhoea ✖️Cravings for foods such as sugar or carbohydrates ✖️Lower back pain ✖️Cramping ✖️Headaches . These symptoms are not normal despite what you have been told! They are a sign that your hormones are out of balance, of which the cause can be different depending on the collection of symptoms experienced It astounds me that women are not taught from an early age about the physiology of their cycle. They are encouraged to ignore it and deal with menstruation and the accompanying symptoms, rather than seeing their cycle as an integral part of their health and wellbeing.

Beginning of the day vs evening (swipe) This morning I posted the first picture and shared about having the sunshine, my coffee, my smoothie, and writing in my journal. I follow, admire, and try to emulate some well known motivational speakers who often push the idea that you are in charge of the day you have. Bad mood? Fix it! Not motivated? Get moving. If you aren't productive, that is on you. I even have a short video that pops up on my phone at 5:00 am everyday about deciding how your day will go. The intention and desire to make the most of each day is great but those speakers may not be dealing with chronicillness or mentalillness . I am. I used to view it as failure when I didn't meet those intentions. But today when my PMDD has fully asserted itself through migraine, anxiety, and a brain trudging through thick mud, I need to remember I wouldn't think a pmddsibling was a failure. So instead, I got a rosemary, ginger latte and am taking time to decompress. I have SO MUCH to do by tomorrow but trying to plow through now will be useless. So instead my feet are up, my latte is in hand, and I am giving myself time before I get back to work. So yes, I am in charge of my day. In charge of treating myself kindly. In charge of not placing blame on myself for my illness. In charge of giving myself grace. pmddwarriors pmddpeeps pmddawarenesschallenge

Mai durchblute anythingyoudoicandobleeding) — cyclesyncing Auch ich nutze eine menstruationstasse und habe seitdem weniger Krämpfe, außerdem findet Kind5 toll, wenn ich „den Zaubertrick“ mache und sie schwupps verschwinden lasse. lebenmitkindern Ich hätte gerne als nächstes eine mit so einem kleinen runden Ring, nicht mehr mit Stiel hitmeup mit den guten Tipps! Auch ich leide an pmdd wie fuchsteufelsschoen (habe ihren Beitrag noch nicht gelesen, nur die Story von Filmlöwin gesehen). Etwa 10 Tage vor meiner Blutung, wenn mein Körper registriert „schon wieder nicht schwanger“, kippt alles ins Bodenlose. Meine sowieso schlechte Gemütslage verliert jeden Halt und ich möchte einfach nur tot sein. Seit Anfang des Jahres probiere ich cbdöl und habe den Eindruck: es hilft ein bisschen. Es nimmt die Spitzen raus. Aber es kostet. Und ich schraube noch an der richtigen Dosierung.

I for one am a thriving survivor of postpartum depression & anxiety, ptsd & pmdd. ✨ I’ve battled PTSD depression & anxiety since childhood & in my adult years I’ve overcome postpartum depression & anxiety as well as learn that I have PMDD which id basically severe pms. 💕 I started openly speaking about my struggles after having my because I believed I wasn’t the only woman battling this although no one spoke about it. 💕 Over the years I’ve used my voice & shared my story for myself & those that struggle but have not found their voice yet. Mental Health does not discriminate it does not care about your gender, age, social status or education. Individuals from all walks of life battle illness unseen to the naked eye. 💕 Some of us take RX meds, some of us workout, some of us journal & meditate. None of us are less than because we fight to improve our mental health. I’d like to think we are stronger for it. It takes courage, strength, self discipline & a rock solid support system to strengthen your mental health. 💕 If you or anyone you know is looking for a community I encourage & welcome you to join the LoveHER MastHER SHEries BECAUSE i believe as woman we are stronger together than we are apart. 💕 TheLoveLifeJourney LoveHERLifeJourney TuesdayTopic MentalHealthAdvocate MentalHealthAwarness PMDD PostpartumDepression PostpartumAnxiety PTSD Anxiety Depression MentalHealthBlogger MomBlogger LifestyleBlogger Mentor Guide HealerAndTeacher

Ska nog ta en liten promenad i alla fall. ”Du orkar inte. Du har ju ont i lederna och är så förbannat trött” sa pms-😈. Nä, jag ska nog bara lägga mig på soffan. Fast en liten promenad kan ju inte skada? ”Du fattar väl att du är för svullen och äcklig?! Du har ju ingen energi och är bara andfådd. Gå och dra nåt gammalt över dig” sa pms-😈. Ok, jag går väl och lägger mig. Ingen vill ju vara nära mig ändå. Fast en liten liten promenad, det hade ju varit skönt. ”Skyll dig själv, du kommer inte orka” sa pms-😈. Skorna åkte på, regnet var uppfriskande och gjorde luften mindre tung. En feeling infann sig och jag sprang. Promenaden blev en löprunda på lätta fötter och en frihetskänsla. Jag sprang ifrån pms-😈 - om så bara för en stund! 💪🏻😅 thistooshallpass pmdd pmddawareness

💁🏼‍♀️Hi beauties Investing in yourself is one of the best things you can do for yourself. I always have been an advocate of finding ways to make myself better in healthy ways. As a PMDD sufferer I took action and put myself in therapy. Taking action is the first step into investing in yourself. It is the first step for everything. And trust me there were many times I had high hopes and then realized what I was trying wasn’t working. That was before I had knowledge of PMDD. 👌🏼 Find what works for you. We are all different. What stressors can you eliminate in your life? What can you add? Investing in yourself doesn’t have to cost money.👍🏻 Investing in yourself is taking the time to make a plan of tools that will help you. Therapy, herbs, yoga, exercise, rest, breathing, emotional releases, journaling, unplugging, reading, being intimate with your significant other etc. doing something that you don’t think you deserve. 👏🏻 Investing in yourself is carving out that time in your daily schedule to do something that will benefit your health mentally, spirituality, and physically. Today is the day to carve time for you to put in your calendar! 🗓 Love J.P. 💖 selfhealers nourish holisticpmdd invest

COMMON MISCONCEPTION: The pill doesn’t balance hormonesMost women are told to go on the pill for any period issues. The problem is, the pill is just a band aid. It doesn’t get to the root cause of the issue If you’re car was broken you wouldn’t simply turn it off you would fix the problem When you take synthetic hormones it forces the ovaries to shut down it’s own production of hormones. For women, most of our reproductive hormones are made and secreted by the ovaries. Yes, women can bleed on the pill but it is not a true period. It is only a withdrawals effect from ceasing the pill during the period week The good news? NATUROPATHIC Doctors know how to correct hormone imbalances without having to resort to the pill.

Lately, I've noticed I'm at a point in my journey where I can finally undo myself without harsh self-judgement, see how and why I found myself put together that way in the first place, and rebuild to become the woman I want to be. It's a painful process and I find myself exhausted emotionally most of the time. Battling PMDD at the same time brings me days where it's close to impossible to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Today is one of those days But this is what I got to wake up to this morning. Two beautiful, confident, radiant women who have the unique privilege of entering the world at a time when women have voices, choices, and a new normal that is healthier than mine was growing up. I know some say the world is a scary place now. To that, I say it always has been, but finally the monsters kept securely under the bed for so long are being forced out and exposed for what they are so we can deal with them once and for all. That may seem terrifying for some, but for me, I'm ready to kick ass so my daughters don t have to. They won't need to undo trauma hidden for decades because of shame or question their right to be who they really are. They will be safe to build themselves up exactly how they want to and be loud if someone tells them otherwise Some days it feels like an uphill battle, other days it feels like we're moving backwards, and some issues feel like unmovable mountains. I know we still have a long way to go and many more battles to win, but the big picture is clear to me. I have hope for my daughters' world because of the millions of powerful women (and men!) out there choosing to fight for it.

Have you ever had PMS? Multiply that by 1000 & that's PMDD.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ PMDD or Premenstrual dysphoric disorder is a collection of physical & mental/emotional symptoms that can take a sister down 1-2 weeks before her period!⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Symptoms include:⠀⠀ ✔Irritability, crying all the time, depression, anger, anxiety, extreme sadness, panic attacks, and mood swings⠀⠀ ✔Painful, tender breasts⠀⠀ ✔Muscle, pelvic and period pain⠀⠀ ✔Excess fatigue⠀⠀ ✔Significant appetite changes⠀⠀ ✔Insomnia, sleep disturbance⠀⠀ ✔Headaches⠀⠀ ✔Weight gain, water retention, bloating⠀⠀ ✔Dizziness, vertigo⠀⠀ ✔Hot flashes, night sweats⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Women who have PMDD pray for their period to start because they know relief will follow.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ There is very specific criteria used by doctors to diagnose this condition. If you're questioning if you have it, you MUST meet with a licensed health care provider who is trained to prescribe. This means you want to look for the MD, DO, NMD/ND, PA, or NP credentials.

Im so blessed to help other women become their best selves! Show my girl, Margarita, some love❤. 10 pounds in 21 Days! She said she tried everything. She tried shakes and diet pills, all the diet claims, workouts! She said she was shy and insecure. She was scared and afraid to fail She asked me what made this so different? RESULTS and the COMMUNITY Like her, I remember feeling hesitant about trying something I didn't know anything about and I had tried it all already. One thing we did know, SEEING THE RESULTS from our community. If they did it, why couldn't we? . The belief from someone else that actually provided the push, the support, someone helping to keep you on track and a community of support and lift! Also, that 30 day money back guarantee😉😄. I looove that our company allows you to try out our system for 30 days so you can experience it for yourself Most people don't think they need this, but how much more powerful do you think we would become if we all motivated, provided an extra push, and coached eachother? I'll let that simmer 💪❤ . I share my journey with you everyday and share the results my tribe have had. It starts HERE. If you want that confidence, the energy to enjoy the life you want, then you have to EARN IT And Rita, you definitely did! Im so proud of you and I'm honored that you chose me to walk with you on your journey 🥰That smile! Do you see the difference? . That confidence and self - esteem is through the roof! As tough as this job can be, it's well worth it. The feeling of making a difference in someone's life, even save it, means everything No worries, there's room for you too. Our Virtual Wellness Bootcamp is accepting 2 more in! Watch me or join me!

Got symptoms of estrogen excess? (PMS, heavy or painful periods, sore breasts, menstrual migraines, endometriosis, fibroids, polyps, etc) Have you had your genes checked? * COMT is a SNP (single nucleotide polymorphism) that affects detoxification of estrogen. If you're COMT +/+ (meaning you have 2 copies of the mutation), you're going to have more trouble getting your estrogen to go down the "good" pathway, and more is going to flow down those "bad" pathways that can lead to endometriosis, gynecologic cancers, etc. (Also, welcome to the clubthank you, family, for giving me COMT +/+.) * How do you find out? I recommend my clients get the cheapest 23&me or test, and then I take the raw data and run it through my analysis software to look for this and other genes that may affect fertility & hormone balance (like MTHFR). * If you have the COMT mutations, supporting your estrogen detox pathways with cruciferous veggies, etc, eating tons of fiber, and focusing on stress management is KEY. You've also got to take steps to support your methylation (sometimes active B vitamins (especially B12, B6 & folate), sometimes something like extra choline or SAMe, depending on your goals and what your levels look like). * Rememberjust because you have a particular gene mutation doesn't mean it's active. They say your genes load the gun, but your environment (diet, exposure to environmental toxins, etc) pull the trigger. The genes you were born with do not necessarily determine your fate! 💪🏼 * What questions do you have for me about COMT & estrogen?👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼

Thank you for allowing us to share your story ❤ Read the full piece on safespacesanctuary Page x Repost safespacesanctuary ・・・ Art by the talented tinamariaelena . My PMDD was so bad last week, I couldn’t work at all I am self employed, very VERY grateful for, but it requires taking appointments, meeting with clients, & providing services. Again, I’d like to stay as anonymous as possible (besides the few who know who I am). I had to reschedule every single appointment last week with clients because I couldn’t even get out of bed. One day, I attempted to go in & immediately went to the bathroom at work, & vomited How do you explain to people that you’re SO hopeless, that you can’t even perform the simplest tasks? I have to go above & beyond when explaining why I have to reschedule so my illness sounds “valid enough” to them. I can’t say, “oh, I have suicidal ideation & have been sobbing for 3 hours straight”. Not only does that make them uncomfortable, but they most likely won’t reschedule because I am now unreliable to them When I don’t have my PMDD symptoms, I feel human again. This is a vicious cycle that, unfortunately, I can’t do much about. This has taken A LOT of self talk, self love, self care, & even kind words & motivation from my spouse, family, & friends to get even *close* to a place where I can say, “if they don’t understand, I don’t want them as a client”. I mean, often I have to remind myself over & over. But I’m starting to get to that realization However, there have been some clients who have been enormously understanding. To the point where it makes me sob even more because they are simply so kind & empathetic. THOSE are the clients I wanna keep around I had a client just the other day, tell me that she had PMDD. Oh my god. It was the most incredible thing, talking to someone who understands every single level of it all. It was our first time meeting & after her appt, we chatted for an hour about mentalhealth. This was, by far, one of the most refreshing conversations I’ve had in a long time. She will probably never understand the impact that she has forever made on me CONT’D IN COMMENTS⬇️

I’m really finding that investing in having my hair, nails and brows done regularly, is having a huge positive effect on my self esteem. Not because I want to conform or look ‘pretty’, but for 2 other reasons. The first, is that I am receiving and accepting compliments which is lovely. The 2nd is that when I’m feeling anxious and lacking in topics of conversation, I can ground myself and focus on something nice. selfcare anxiety pmdd

This is what someone struggling looks like. Swipe to see what someone walking in victory looks like. I’m hysterically laughing because Struggling Lacey looks a lot less broken than Victory Lacey. I say victory because I’ve clawed my way off of rock bottom. So that’s victory. And I’m walking in that from now on. The messy Lacey asks for help; celebrates and serves more than ever; feels true joy! That’s victory!

Good morning pmddsiblings ! I am tired and grumpy and without my medical marijuana today (🙈🙉🙊 whoops, full disclosure, I dropped my other meds in the hopes that this will work for me). It is a struggle for me personally, that I would love to talk about more, so comment here any questions you have about my issues and marijuana. It can’t help me though if I keep feeling too ashamed to bring it with me. Regardless, here’s a tbt to a very proud day for me, when I graduated from grad school downunder I wanted to share this today to remind myself on a bad day how badass I am, to remember how I look like on a good day (that smile tho), to show my pmddpeeps that it IS possible to finish a degree program (or four) when you promise yourself to never give up and you utilize all the tools you are given (Student Services, Siblings), and lastly, to remind everyone, not just those with pmdd that knowledge is power. Education is so important. We need to understand the science behind what we go through in order to find treatments that work for us. Even for those of us that stay on top of medical science as it pertains to premenstrualdysphoricdisorder learning is still so beneficial! Read a book you’ve been meaning to read for a while, learn a new language, or if you’re sporty, go take a dance, kickboxing, paddle boarding, whatever class. Our brains are muscles that we have control over: learning helps your brain stay healthy and grow. I can’t say enough how important educating yourself is, in whatever subject piques your interest. You have control over your own growth and mental/emotional wellbeing. Thanks for letting me share with you all one of my greatest achievements—posting it here is helping me get through my yuck morning 😻 Never stop learning, my siblings! neuroplasticity holisticpmdd pmdd_diaries
