Written with chapters for both the woman trying to cope with her PMDD, and her partner, PMDD and Relationships fills a need for understanding and hope. Understanding of this often debilitating disorder that affects 3 - 8% of menstruating women, and hope for a normal life with friends and family.
Topics include how to develop a network of support and encouragement, and how to enjoy deep and abiding relationships in the midst of hormonal chaos. You are not alone, and there is no reason for you to stay alone unless you choose to. Even then, PMDD and Relationships can help you to deal with your PMDD and the world around you in a way that brings renewed joy into the life you were meant to live.

Liana spends her spare time reading (what else?), researching (mostly PMDD these days), walking in circles (at the YMCA while she plans books and blog posts), making soup (it helps her to think and feeds her friends, too!), and traveling (to meet friends new and old, relax, and inspire her writing!).
