My name is Laura and I am a PMDD survivor, a postpartum psychosis survivor, and a menstrual psychosis survivor. I’m a suicide survivor. I am the mother of two beautiful daughters who are my world. I am an advocate for hormonal mood disorders and menstrual related syndromes. I’m not your average person in any which way.  I struggle day to day with PTSD and depression. I also try not to wallow in self pity, but I’m aware that some days breathing is agony and all I can do. I’m intense. I’m open. I’m frank. I hate conflict. I hate pain and suffering.
