I appreciate the suggestion. I do, but as aforementioned, I've adopted a pescetarian lifestyle-mostly veggies, seeds, beans, nuts, fruit-in that order-with fish every now and then. I don't eat white bread except for on very rare occasions-maybe twice a month. I don't drink soda or fruit juice. Can't remember the last time I had jelly. The only syrup I use is agave nectar in my coffee. I use raw sugar, too. Also-I'm not a diabetic. I'm trying to avoid that by losing weight.
I am getting a blood panel done on Saturday. :)
Good info, though, for those who don't already know.

Sugar can cause depression and mood swings.

Diabetics also have depression and mood swings

You could be low in folic acid, vitamin D or even B vitamins I would call the doctor who can take a complete blood work up of your blood sugar, thyroid, lipid panel, vitamin D, magnesium levels and potassium levels. Don' t wait.

Meantime eat turkey, tuna, or chicken, low fat cheese, fish, lots of veggies, especially brocolli, spinach, romaine. Add flaxseeds to your oatmeal, salds, veggies, they stablize blood sugar and can improve mood.Try sunflower seeds, oranges, flaxseeds, eggs or egg whites, sardines, salmon, veggies, and 4 walnuts a day may help. Include leafy greens daily like Romaine, watercress, Arugula, Spinach and maybe a fortified breakfast cereal.

Concentrated sources of sugar, like soda, candy, fruit juice, jam, and syrups, too many carbs can cause radical spikes or drops in your blood sugar, which ultimately leave you feeling grumpy.

See a doctor.

GLITTERFAIRY77,

How old were the women in your family when they started showing signs of menopause ? You may not be menopausal, but it's possible you may be seeing some early symptoms of peri-menopause. So, it's possible, your mood swings could be related to peri-menopause.

Now, that doesn't mean you're starting menopause at 35. But it's not unusual to see an occasional symptom pop up because of hormone fluctuations. So, try not to worry too much. It could be a one time thing. If the symptoms persist, you should consider talking to your OB/GYN and asking them if you might be experiencing some early symptoms of menopause.

I totally agree-- when you have a big change like that, your doctor is the first place to start. You'd want to rule out anything going on medically before you start with any kind of homeopathic remedies or anything. It'd be really disappointing to go at it backwards, only to find out down the road (after much frustration) that there was a simpler medical answer to the whole thing, or even that it was a symptom of a larger problem that needs to be addressed.

Edited to add: some years ago I had a problem with my periods, after them being fairly consistent for years and years. Saw my doctor-- she put me on B/C pills for a couple months. Whole thing straightened right out and I got off the pills. No big deal and it was really simple. Just my personal experience and of course your problem may be entirely different. Just sayin'.

IMHO, you should be going to your Dr and telling him/her exactly what you have said here. You need to be checked medically to rule out other issues as well.

Good luck

I'm not sure where else to post this. I just got over my monthly fiend a week ago. I am 35 years old, and my menstual cycle, though regular, has been doing weird things. Also, the last, I'd say-five or so months, I've been particularly moody, up to TWO weeks before my period. I've changed my diet, COMPLETELY. I take my vitamins, and figured out that if I take them right after dinner and drink a bunch of water, I do okay. They don't make me nauseous. Is this just a part of aging? I mean, I used to cry at the drop of a hat when I was younger. I managed to mature, and now again, usually in the two weeks before my fiend is due, I start being all p*ssy and weepy, and it IS DRIVING ME BANANAS!
Should I get my hormone levels checked or something? Are there any naturopathic remedies that will help level me out? I don't want to take ANY synthetic hormones.
