In episode 189 of The Just Checking In Podcast we checked in with Jennifer Jordan.
Jennifer is a Freelance Digital PR Manager and lives with a female health condition called Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder(PMDD).
PMDD is a rare form of Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) which causes a range of emotional and physical symptoms every month during the week or two before a woman’s period. PMDD usually occurs during the luteal phase of a woman’s menstrual cycle.
In this episode we discuss Jennifer’s childhood as an only child and how she navigated periods of loneliness in school.
We also discuss abandonment and attachment issues she’s had to deal with from growing up in a single-parent household and not knowing her biological father from birth.
We finish by discussing body image issues and self-harm behaviours she experienced as a teenager and in her early 20’s, the grief she experienced from losing her grandparents and a deep dive into her experience of PMDD.
As always, #itsokaytovent
