Menstruation Management for My Emotions
September 19, 2019 6:27 PM Subscribe
I've finally gotten a handle on some of the physical effects of my period (thanks, advil and exercise!), but still get my ass kicked by the emotional/mood effects, which include being very irritable, crying easily/often, and feeling a vague sense of existential despair for about 5 days. It's like a mini depression. Menstruating mefites, please share your tips and tricks with me for managing the emotional/mood elements of your period. I'm especially interested in tangible practices/activities, and open to herbal or mild medication, plus any/all other suggestions.
