👨‍⚕️I’ve teamed up with @lunahubpmdd for a #PMDDAwarenessMonth edition of #ShitMyDoctorSays, to share the worst things healthcare professionals have said to you about PMDD.
🩸'Would my mental distress always be dismissed because it was associated with my period?'⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🩺'Women in surgical menopause so often have their experiences invalidated'⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨New on #HystericalWomen, for #pmddawarenessmonth, @myhormones_myhealth shares her experiences of seeking support with pre-menstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🔁Resharing for PMDD Awareness Month: Way back in 2017, I interviewed @viciouscyclepmdd founder Laura Murphy about her experiences of pre-menstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), in my first ever feature for @theipaper. I also interviewed Dr Nick Panay, chair of the National Association for Premenstrual Syndrome (@naps_pms), who explained exactly what PMDD is and how it's treated.
❤️Next Tuesday lunchtime I’ll be in conversation with the brilliant force of nature that is @_maisiehill_. Maisie is the author of Period Power and Perimenopause Power, an expert on all things hormonal and, like me, loves a good feminist rant about women’s health! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✍️I wrote for @theipaper about NICE’s new guidelines on chronic primary pain treatment, and why it’s a disaster for women already struggling to get their doctors to take their pain seriously.
🩺New on #HystericalWomen: “I almost died because medical professionals wouldn’t look past the size of my belly”.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✍️I'm back, and I'm open for submissions!
