Dixie D’Amelio, who is 21 years old and has over 57 million followers on the TikTok platform, is one of the platform’s most popular stars. Both her videos on the app and her music career, during which she has issued a number of singles and an album titled 2022, have brought her a great deal of notoriety.
Dixie disclosed that she has been diagnosed with Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder, more commonly referred to as PMDD, during a session of Instagram Live that took place in the month of October.
She said with her audience, “I wasn’t feeling great and wasn’t really sure why.” “Recently, I was given the diagnosis of a condition referred to as Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder, which is more often known as PMDD. It has a significant impact on not just your feelings and actions, but also on many other aspects of your life.
“Until I got to this place that I was in last week, I didn’t understand how much it was affecting me until I got to this stage. However, it has a significant impact on my life, my attitude, my personality, my relationships, and even simply who I am as a person, in addition to increasing my anxiety.
According to the Office on Women’s Health, “Premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) is a health concern that is comparable to premenstrual syndrome (PMS), but it is more problematic. ” PMDD is characterised by extreme irritability, melancholy, or anxiety in the week or two leading up to the start of a woman’s period. The symptoms will often disappear between two and three days after the beginning of your menstruation.
Dixie went on to say that she was “really happy that I know what’s wrong because now I can find better ways to handle my emotions.” She went on to explain that she has been dealing with this issue every month for the past seven years.
