If you’re affected by any of the issues raised in this episode, please do not be afraid to seek support. Help is available. The NHS website has a great directory to get you started.

There’s a lot of other things that happen there but one of the big things that happen with PMDD is rage, so like, irritability and anger and rage. And like, art has really helped me because you feel it in your whole body, because weirdly, ’cause it’s hormonal, you feel it. You don’t just think it, you feel it.  And so to be able to dance that out and to just get real angry in my dance is huge.
