Description

For more than twenty years Holli Kenley thought she was going crazy! One moment she felt good; the next moment she was tearing apart anything in her path in a hysterical, crying tantrum. During her “good” times, she was outgoing, gregarious and fun-loving. But in her dark times, she lived in a world of loneliness, depression and isolation.
The PMS Puzzle is a guide to recovery for women who suffer from Premenstrual Syndrome. This thoughtful autobiography depicts Holli’s physical, psychological and spiritual struggles and the steps she took to seek and find help. Her story is similar to women’s lives who may be afflicted with a very real and powerful illness, and like Holli, have no indication that there may be a physiological problem. Research shows that 40 to 60% of all women from the ages of 15 to 50 experience PMS symptoms. Yet most women never seek help, fearing that they really are just going crazy.
It’s time to put an end to the fear, embarrassment and denial associated with PMS. There is real help and real coping solutions available, not just for the PMS sufferer but for everyone – family members, co-workers, friends — who may be affected by the symptoms of this treatable illness. PMS sufferers and their loved ones will be encouraged and inspired to learn that God’s promise belongs to them: He who began good work will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (Phil. 1: 6)
