I have been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder- about 4 years ago. I'm taking 100mg of sertraline, and recieving therapy, but being encouraged to move on, as I've made some progress. I am affraid to lose this contact, I need the support. My 'problems' are still very alive, I sometimes can manage to keep control, but there are many times I just can't. My temper is very explosive, my emotions and rage are extreme, which seems much worse for about 2 weeks around my period.
I came across a pamplet on PMDD, which the discription of symptoms sounded alot like mine, disphoria, rage, depression etc.
I have had a mirena IUD for about 2 years, and wondering if that is having some effect on me. The distinct difference of my mood cycle around my period has only been recent.
I had a hormone level test about 6 months ago, which showed nothing unusual.
I'm hoping someone might be able to offer me some advice.
I feel very confused and affraid, I don't know what to do.
