Advice for Women with PMDD Empower Asks: What do you say to a woman who tells you, “Do you Mean I’m not Just crazy?

So we used to think women were just mean or being a bitch or whatever, and now we know women’s brains function differently because of these falling hormones. So it’s in your head, but it’s very much a mind-body connection of how the hormones, the female hormones, interact with the brain hormones.
