First off – let me just say that I am SOOO glad that I only get PMS every two months, because if I got it every month, I’d go insane. Mine lasts for about 2 weeks before I get my period, and in that two weeks all rational thoughts seem to go out the window.
Most of all? Waiting becomes UNBEARABLE! My last two PMS’s since SO and I rehashed the wedding talk have been awful. I’m talking: can’t stop thinking about why he hasn’t proposed yet; overanalyzing why he never brings up getting married; panic; and up until all hours of the night planning a wedding that in my PMS state I feel like is never going to happen, to the point I get so upset I’m almost in tears.
Ugh! What is wrong with me?! I do so well, and then WHAM! Mother Nature pokes Mr. Firey Waiting Dragon on the back and says “time to wake up child and WREAK SOME M**R F**ING HAVOC!”
I need to go home, take a nap, stuff my face, and have a nice ugly cry.

Awww, PMS sucks. I’ve cried about marriage about five times this week, because it’s the week before and I’m overtired and my dishwasher is broken (which somehow makes me go I’M DOING SO MANY DISHES I DESERVE TO BE ENGAGED TO YOU! Um. wat?)
On top of that, my SO and I now shop at BJ’s, which has this shiny display case of jewelry right in the front of the building, and I just can’t help but linger a little bit over it while trying not to cry about not having an engagement ring…
Yup, I’m pretty much a crazy person too during my PMS. It was worse when I had to go off the pill for a while a month ago. That was crazytown.

LOLOL! I This has be cracking up cause it is so true!!!!!!! It’s like at one point in time my brain is a fully functioning normal human brain then about a week before something……changes. i’m surprised SO doesn’t run away and hide in the woods when ZILLAME appears. Sometimes if people are breathing weird i flip hahahah as if they can help breathing?! oy vey!

I am so glad that I am not the only one that goes completely nuts at that time of the month! Luckily SO grew up with 3 sisters so he understands 🙂

@buzzyplush: (which somehow makes me go I’M DOING SO MANY DISHES I DESERVE TO BE ENGAGED TO YOU! Um. wat?)
This seriously cracked me up because I’m the same way! I made you dinner twice this week and we’re not engaged why?!!? LOL
@raye9289: Tell me about it. I could NOT sleep last night and it was partially because I’m crazy right now and the other part because SO was hogging the bed and I knew that politely asking him to please MOVE THE F*** OVER was not an option. So I ended up going to the guest room where I played solitaire on my phone until 2 am and then crawled back into bed with SO after my phone’s alarm went off.

SO just texted me and was like “what happened to you last night?” (I went to the guest room) and somehow I think responding “I couldn’t sleep last night because I was too busy overanalyzing why we’re not married yet, as well as our bed has just gotten beyond uncomfortable, so I went to the guest room to sulk”, isn’t the best answer….

PMS literally makes me into a nervous, anxious wreck!
My SO is out of the country for the next few weeks trying to renew his visa, and I was going along hunky-dory until the beast struck.
All of a sudden, the following seemed true to me:
1. He was falling out of love with me because he didn’t immediately answer an email.
2. Therefore, we are not going to get engaged. EVAHHH.
3. Everyone hates me.
I was SO CRAZY, crying into my pillow in the middle of the afternoon. I’m lucky I resisted the urge to call him or email him any of those feelings I kept telling myself it wasn’t true but omg why does it seem so DIRE when the hormones are all over the place?
SO is really fascinated with PMS. He doesn’t have any sisters and when we first started dating would say really cute things like “When that happens, let me know and I’ll go out and grocery shop for you and bring you things”… like you are bedridden or something. He thinks my wild moods are scientifically interesting.

Oh, girl, meet your sister. I usually am fine because I do a month’s cycle on the pill at a time but this cycle I ran two packs together and I am like an ANTICHRIST.
My SO is away for work until next Sunday and I really miss him, which I’m normally quite good about, but he’s very good with my PMS and I hate being on my own when I feel this way.
My thought process mirrors @CaroBee‘s: WHY HASN’T HE CALLED TO TELL ME HOW MUCH HE MISSES ME SINCE THE LAT TIME HE DID TEN MINUTES AGO HE HAS MET SOMEONE ELSE AND IS JOINING THE CIRCUS I WILL EAT ALL THE CHEESE AND WHERE IS THE WINE I WANT A PUPPY.
That was yesterday evening. Today I’m just living on heat pads and painkillers 🙁
