Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
1. She is 34 Years old and she has had this problem from her teenage years. It happens around the time of her periods. She has two children, 4 and 6 yrs old and never has taken any kind of hormones or birth control pills.
2. In her teens she went to a psycologist that sent her to her husband a psychiatrist, he put her on drugs, told us she was scitzophrenic or manic because of paranoia. That was 20 years ago! She felt better and went off the drugs and left the psycologist. Wouldn't she be worse by now if this was true? Years later she went to another psycologist and she said she wasn't scitzo, worked thru some problems and she was okay for awhile. She got married, had kids and again I talked her into seeing someone. She went for awhile and said she wasn't helping, so she stopped. Lately, still around the time of her periods, she gets upset when something happens with her kids, like her son wouldn't go on a trip with the class (he's 4) she crys, no one likes her, the ladies in her kids school hate her, won't talk to her or have their kids play with their kids. She is depressed, says the kids would be better off without her, and a couple of days later she seems fine. She is going to nursing school right now and very stressed out. She is unorganized but doesn't seem to have any manic highs, just the lows before her periods.
3. No, only has arguments with me, her father, brother or her husband.
5. No, they are people that she knows, friends, other mothers at school, kids teachers.
