We've been together for 6 months and it's been a rough ride because of work we both travel a lot (we work for the same company but different branches in different cities and met at a conference), but because we liked each other so much we wanted to make it work. Sometimes when we are apart I start to get really insecure and sad, and it leads to us getting into fights. It has happened 3 times in total and this last time (two days ago) got really out of control and we broke up. We haven't spoken and I feel horrible.
I start to get really depressed and I'll think he doesn't love me or want to be with me and I'll start crying and then I'll call him and seek reassurance. He'll usually respond with he's too busy at the moment, and then I'll try to calm down and the next day he'll talk about it with me.. but by then I'll feel better we'll have a nice calm convo and everything turns out ok.
Two months ago it almost happened again but then I realized this was happening exactly 2 days before I get my period. I decided to ignore my emotions and wrote them off as my hormones affecting me.
I told him that I think it's my emotions around my period and I'll try to control it.. and I was doing so well.. it almost happened a few more times but I was able to control it.
This time the exact same thing happened and I forgot to try to control it... we're apart again and I'm stressed about work - they want me to go to Vegas for 2 weeks when I was hoping to be with my boyfriend. When I called him we got into a fight again and when he told me he was busy and can't deal with it it turned into a big fight. He broke up with me and said he doesn't want to deal with this anymore.
I don't know what to do or why it's so hard to control my emotions. My period has never ever affected my emotions before this is the first time it's happening.
Has anyone else experienced this? What am I supposed to do now?
Most Helpful Girl
I get over emotional, paranoid , depressed and irritable about a week before my period is due. I have pushed many people away due to not being able to control it. I have been to my Doctors and tried various treatments , but none have worked.
I had a close guy friend who eventually cut contact with me, due to not being able to deal with the change in my personality once a month. He is a good person, and I guess nice people have their limits too. I miss him , and I try so hard to control my emotions to prevent destroying any potential friendships/ relationships.
All I can suggest is to go to see you Doctor and do reasearch online , and try various treatments/ methods available. I'm sorry I haven't got good advice for you... but I can relate to how you feel. Xx 💜1
