I've taken a B-complex most days, either as part of my cramp bark pills or a general vitamin. Now that the weather is warming up and my bike is almost fixed, I can start biking to work (9 mi round trip), which will help. My boyfriend's been out of town since last Tuesday, and won't get back until Saturday, which doesn't help. I don't recall being particularly melancholy around my period before hbc, and I did really well on the NuvaRing, which is why I thought I'd adjust to hormones easily. I definitely have stressors right now--money, impending grad school insecurities, upcoming trip to meet The Parents--but stress usually manifest itself as specific anxieties.
I am prone to depression, but have been off Celexa for a full year because my cognitive behavior therapy was so successful and I can't remember to take daily pills anyway. Anxiety and ADD are more of an issue for me, and I usually cope with all three reasonably well. I know these periods of funk are due to going off of the NuvaRing, or possibly due to the Mirena directly. How long are they going to last? How can I ameliorate them?
