Managing mental health on period

My mind is flashing unhealthy past relationships and making my feel low in mood. How can I manage mental health whilst on my period, as this worsens my condition?

I had PMDD and I didn't want to take meds for many reasons but in my 40s when I reached perimenopause it got REALLY bad and I ended up in the hospital for suicidal ideation and intent so I finally tried them and it helped. I'm also bipolar 1. Menopause has been another hormonal laugh riot with ADHD and bipolar disorder, let me tell you. But the telling myself it would pass worked for years. If you ever feel like it's not, get help. Please.

For me it got worse after turning 35. Its like I just have one good week per month. But 10 days before my period I become more clumsy, more irritated on everyone, I feel like the whole world is stupid, I react more strongly on things, and feel very very low, nothing is fun. And everything with my adhd is more difficult. The doctor gave me anti-depression meds that is for PmDS so I eat them just the difficult days, and stop with them day 2 in the period. Some months I don’t take them at all. It works good for me

There’s a therapist whose reels I watch on Facebook (search “Flourish: Women with adhd”) and she’s taught me SO much about how adhd can impact women. She has two reels specifically addressing adhd and your cycle. I’m going to try pasting the links here: https://www.facebook.com/reel/756412859443711?fs=e&s=TIeQ9V&mibextid=0NULKw https://www.facebook.com/reel/253816870351543?fs=e&s=TIeQ9V&mibextid=0NULKw
