I always know it's about to start because I suddenly start feeling like shit. I can't stop thinking all these terrible things about myself, how I'm ugly and pathetic and worthless, I'll always be alone, I'll never accomplish anything, nobody likes me (and why should they), I'm stupid, disgusting, etc.. I cry constantly and sometimes even feel like I just want to kill myself.
I used to think I was depressed, but then I noticed how it always flares up right before that time of month, and by the time I'm done bleeding, I'm mostly normal again.
Do any other girls experience this as a symptom? How do you deal with it?

Yeah, I feel really ugly and depressed when I PMS. It sucks but it's completely normal.
The hormonal fluctuations we experience before and during our periods are known have a direct affect on our moods. Also, annoying PMS symptoms (like acne break outs, breast tenderness, feeling bloated, cramps, etc.) may also put you in a bad mood.
I always make sure to go to the gym a lot because it makes me feel better (mentally) by helping me release endorphins, those feel-good hormones.0
