Suicidal thoughts and self harm urges before period - March 20th 2012, 06:56 PM

Last night I sobbed for hours and was thinking about committing suicide and self-harm. I kept thinking it doesn't matter, it's never going to get any better, I should just end it once and for all, etc.

It was about three pm when I started trying not to cry and having self-harm thoughts at school. On the bus that morning, I thought about how much of a failure I am, how I should just give up, etc.

I wanted to self-harm when I got home at about four, but I just started crying then fell asleep. I started having suicidal thoughts last night. I was wondering what was wrong because I'm usually not like this and then I woke up with blood on my underwear in the morning.

Today I was anxious, irritable, upset, a bit angry, but not suicidal. I didn't think rationally last night and I know I can't think completely rationally today.

I have really light periods other than that though. I get about four day periods maybe five times a year. I don't even get headaches or cramps. This has happened before. Same thing pretty much. A turbulent night of sobbing and feeling suicidal and waking up and realizing I'm on my period.

I've had this happen too, in the days before and during my period sometimes. My guess would be hormone changes trigger it.

It definitely sounds like something the hormonal changes are doing to you. Of course, I can't diagnose, so this might be something worth bringing up with your doctor.

I feel better now. I'm very irritable and tired, but not suicidal.

Edit: I started sobbing for a while there, but now I'm good.

Re: Suicidal thoughts and self harm urges before period - March 21st 2012, 06:54 PM

I get this every month - in fact, I'm beginning to notice that my moods are very extreme, and very linked to my period. I feel really really low, self harm, restrict eating, have suicidal thoughts, but it's mainly in the week before my period and during my period. Then afterwards, I get much happier.
I would recommend talking to a doctor about how you feel. These mood swings are not healthy, especially if you're hurting yourself over it and considering suicide. I'm planning to see a doctor soon. I've read about this, and heard it can be controlled by hormone birth control like the Pill, or anti-depressants if it's more severe. I can't diagnose anything, but it sounds as though you're showing symptoms of PMS or even PMDD. However, I definitely think that going to the doctor would help you a lot, so you can get the help you need. It's not good to feel like this
If you have any questions, feel free to PM/VM me any time

Obviously we can't diagnose you, but really look into the symptoms Katie listed, and talk to your gynecologist. I have very extreme PMS myself, I was never diagnosed with PMDD, but when I was younger (before sexually active) I went on birth control and it helped A LOT. With the technology we have nowadays with hormone contraceptives, it's very easy to treat these symptoms.


something burning?
