It's Not A Crisis


Finding Help for Women with PMDD and PME

Ep. 24

In this episode, I am joined by Laura Murphy, who is a Director of Education and Awareness at IAPMD - International Association for Premenstrual Disorders. Laura has been kind enough to share her story of struggling with PMDD for 17 years until she was diagnosed. She has been through dark times, like many of you may be experiencing even now, but her story is one of positivity, support and a newfound passion to help other women. We touch more on PMDD, PME (Premenstrual Exacerbation) and PMS and how they affect lives in different ways.

IAPMD is a great resource for women going through PMDD - a resource that has helped me a lot through my journey. I knew I wanted to share this with as many women as I can, so I invited Laura on the show. IAPMD was founded in 2013 as the National Association for Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder by Amanda LaFleur and Sandi MacDonald. Their mission is to inspire hope and end suffering for those affected by premenstrual disorders through peer support, education, research and advocacy. They have programs that you can be a part of, as well as many support groups and other amazing resources.
