A couple thoughts, and if you feel more comfortable PM'ing me the answers, I'm def okay with that.
Firstly, what is it that you are running from? I mean, in a way, each and every one of us is running from ourselves, but there must have been some deep trauma in your life that is resurfacing and asking to be acknowledged, and I can't help but think that whatever it is may be what you're drowning out.
Secondly, do you ever write down on a calendar when these episodes tend to get worse? I had someone suggest that to me before, and I thought it was utter bullsh*t, until I did it, and realized that I tended to jump off the cliff 3 days prior to my period, and then if I didn't recognize what was going on, it lasted weeks. Now that I'm more aware, and kind of expect it, I've learned to deal with some of it, knowing its coming, and it is less lengthy.
And thirdly - yes, I do think you should share with your doctor what is going on, because you're doing yourself an injustice to sit and talk to them if you're not going to receive the help you need for each piece of the puzzle.
Knowing other people is intelligence, knowing yourself is wisdom.
Mastering other people is strength, mastering yourself is power.
If you realize that what you have is enough, you will be rich, truly rich.
