PMDD is a hormone-based mood disorder, which can arise during the premenstrual phase of a woman’s monthly cycle. It can prompt extreme rage, anxiety, mood swings, and at its worst - suicide. About 30% of women with PMDD try to take their own lives. This is the story of Lynda and Laura’s PMDD journey and how their friendship and the peer support and treatment information they exchange, has made all the difference.
See Vicious Cycle, the patient-led PMDD group co-founded by Laura Murphy. Lynda Pickett runs their Australian branch.
