Default Anyone else?

Does anyone else feel like their period changes them? I realize the crazy fluxing hormones change a lot, but I feel like I turn into a different person.

I stopped taking medicine but I get sporadic cycles. Right before a cycle I start getting attracted to girls (I've always thought of myself as hetero). I also get very depressed, insecure and emotional. The depression,insecurity and attraction continue after the cycle ends.

I feel like I can relate to people with ADD who don't take their medicine because they feel like they're not themselves. When I took progesterone pills or get a random cycle, I feel like i'm a different person. I absolutely hate these crazy emotions. I should be forcing myself to get a cycle every month but no way if I'm gonna feel like this every time.

Anyone else get similar feelings? I'd appreciate any input.

Edit:
I guess my feelings are similar to the post "PCOS and the loss of my sexual identity". Maybe hormones just f*** with us differently.

Edit 2:
I can't figure out how to delete this post but I did find some info while researching. Looks like estrogen levels decrease right before a cycle and Serotonin drops with it. http://www.soulcysters.net/showthrea...ght=depression
