I have never read that PTSD gets worse with prior to menstration, but it makes perfect sense that it does. I never made the connection, but I am bedridden from depression on those days. I feel that I can relate to what you are saying about those feelings of major depression. I started tracking it and sure enough 2 days prior to onset of menstration I would have horrible headaches and feel like I wanted to die. Before I was medicated, I was to the point that I couldn't watch tv, drive in traffic, or stand to hear a phone ring. I could barely have a conversation with my family without getting in an argument. Now, that I am medicated, I can really see just how bad the PTSD got.

I feel your sense of safety is of the utmost importance in your situation. Your concerns are very understandable. Is their anyway you can see a counselor of your own choosing outside of the VA?
