Moody Girly

Mother Goddess

I've been feeling very emotional this past week. I kept having to remind myself it was hormones, and to take B6 and B12 every morning (like the doctor recommended).

Here's some info via Livestrong:

Vitamin B12

According to the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University, vitamin B12
deficiency can lead to a type of anemia called pernicious anemia, which
causes extreme fatigue. Since fatigue is common during menstruation,
it's important to take B12 supplements or get B12 injections in some
cases as to prevent excess fatigue. Vitamin B12 can also help to
decrease depressive symptoms that are sometimes associated with
pre-menstrual syndrome.

Vitamin B6

Dr. Emily Kane, an Alaska-based naturopath, acupuncturist and columnist for
"Better Nutrition" magazine, states that vitamin B6 allows the brain to
produce serotonin adequately, in turn making a woman can feel relaxed
rather than depressed
. She explains that if a woman doesn't get enough
vitamin B6, her body will have a harder time getting rid of excess
estrogen in the body. Vitamin B6 can help to reduce bloating and make a
woman feel more relaxed before her period.

Of course, I had a major breakout as well. That should have been a major clue to increased hormonal activity!

I believe it does, to varying degrees...but some days are more moody than others. :P</p>

At least I am recognizing my moods better now that I'm...more experienced. :D
