Ok, so let's talk about the Winter Blues, or how about the all year blues? My entire life I suffered from some sort of deep sadness and often times borderline depression. Yesterday was one of those depression days. I felt utterly low. My personal journal entry was appalling. The terminology I used, the words that were being expressed from my pen severely shocking.
We don't always have to have our shit together every single day, and that's ok. It's ok to have bad days, good days, or really low days. You also don't have to deal with it, or take an "ride it out" approach to your PCOS induced depression. As you read my blog you will notice that I am an advocate for all things natural. I am a firm believer that whatever ails you, nature has a cure for it. St. John's Wort is that cure for me.
I use everything in tincture form, especially for this, because I want to feel ease of my symptoms as soon as I can. I take a dropperful when I feel myself tipping over the edge, and this really mellows me out. I am grateful for it, or I would spiral out of control. In the past I would have depression episodes that lasted weeks, it was crippling to say the very least. I only need this once or twice during my monthly cycle, and only a dropperful. I'm curious, do you suffer from PCOS induced depression? What are some of the ways you cope? If you need someone to talk to, you can always reach out to me via email.
