I'm male and my partner has been diagnosed with PMDD.
Her symptoms vary too and it is incredibly difficult to cope with - all members of the family are affected.
Today she is acting incredibly irrationally, blaming me for everything that has gone wrong and threatening to commit suicide later.
I've tried to support her but she picks on me and my eldest daughter (not hers) constantly.
Feeling quite 'at the end of my tether' right now and not sure what to do.
Her latest comment (shouted at me while crying hysterically) was;
"you go out with J****** and I'll stay with N******. When you come back I'll go out and not come back"
She tries to maintain a 'friendly' face to everyone else (even her close friends) and won't talk to anyone. It took a long time for me to convince her to see her GP!
The GP prescribed antidepressants but she doesn't take them regularly so they don't help. I've mentioned this to no avail.
I'm on the verge of leaving with my eldest daughter because this seems to be the only way of breaking the cycle of agression and distress.
So ... sorry - there doesn't seem to be an easy answer for anyone in these situations.
