If your comment is that you never take out your bad moods on anyone ever, then please spare me. I’m in no mood for little miss perfects 😛
If you are stressed out, having a bad day, or whatever else gets your goat, how do you prevent yourself from being a bitch? This whole week I have been annoyed by literally everything. Even good things that I would normally be happy about, I can find something to complain about.
I am so lucky that I have the most understanding man on the planet. He knows when to ignore me, when to put me in my place, and when to hug me. I’m blessed. But I am sure not acting like it 😛 Even when I consciously know I’m being a bitch on wheels, I keep doing it!
Obviously I don’t do this all the time or I wouldn’t be married. However, I am even annoying myself. So, tell me ladies, what do you do? Work out? Read? Hide? I definitely need some tips to chill the fuck out!

@MrsPanda99: Honestly…..I hide. Lol, it sounds awful, but I figure if I can’t face anyone, I have no opportunity to be a B. And I forewarn FI, apologize in advance, and ask him if we can just cuddle on the couch and watch a movie so we don’t have to talk. XD
It might also help you to go do something that is all about you. Shop or get a mani or *something* that might help you unwind? I will sometimes go get my nails/hair done or hide in the bathroom and take a bath and read a magazine and listen to music and ignore the outside world.
I hate when that happens, I’ve had weeks like yours. I hope it gets better for you. *hug*

I always give FI a heads up if I can help it. Since I’m on BC my meltdown is pretty regular at bedtime of the second day of my period. FI just holds me until it passes. I also indulge myself in my chocolate cravings, something about chocolate helps your serotonin levels. Another interesting thing I learned from my therapist is that repetitive motion increases your serotonin levels, my go tos right now are sewing and knitting.

@MrsPanda99: I get like this too. And he fact that DH doesn’t get like this, and manages to remain perfectly reasonable, helpful and all-around wonderful makes me even MORE mad. Like, GET MAD AT ME. CALL ME A BITCH. But he never does.
Eventually, I either (a) crumble into his lap and tell him I’m sorry, or (b) go off in a fury and watch TV or a movie. I find that being forced into another world and someone else’s life makes me forget about mine.

I go for a walk.. write an angy letter and dont send it… cry.. hubster almost always says “babe, do you want to take a nap” lol it bugs me but is almost always true.. or “babe do you want a snack”.. sometimes i set a limit like 10 dollars and go see what kind of good deals i can get at a discount store 🙂

I just announce that “x, y, and z have me in bitch mode. fair warning” and if people annoy me I just get all bitchy. I guess it is a hazard of being around me, some days you might get chewed out.

@MrsPanda99: Hahaha! I always love your threads! 🙂 I’m pretty much queen bitch about once a month… 😉 Ha! It depends on if it’s a person or a situation aggravating the eff outta me. If it’s a person… a coworker, a parent, the FI, a friend, I generally hide. I’m not about confrontation, but I know that if I’m feeling particularly full of myself, things could go south so I just avoid coming in contact with them all together until I feel like myself again. If it’s a situation like my FI’s stressing about work and making me feel it, or money’s a little tight, I’ll hit the pavement. Running really helps me to clear my head and gives me an hour to myself where no one can reach me. 🙂
I’m sorry you’re having a rough week! I hope things get better for you for the weekend 😉 ((((HUGSSS))))

Well. I don’t really have a way to prevent this. Sometimes I just have to be a bitch because I feel like being a bitch. What does make me feel better is being a bitch to someone/something that deserves it though, like complaining about crappy Internet service or something the city government is doing poorly. Yep, I’m petty.

I read or watch tv and try not to talk to anyone because it just annoys me. I understand where you are coming from, I get in these moods too. I can’t be Mary Fucking Sunshine 24/7…I just can’t.

First, I give fair warning, especially to my husband. I always say, “I’m crabby so tred lightly.” I usually get really quiet if I am with anyone else. If I am with DH, I watch tv or depending on if I am really huffy, I will go lay in the bedroom and work off my laptop in there.

@MrsPanda99: When I am being a bitch on wheels, I hide if I can. I become very introspective, and try to figure out how I can remedy these feelings 🙁 I am also very apologetic to my husband.
I have had a hellacious week, as well *hugs*
ETA: A weird thing my husband pointed out to me is that if I am feeling that way at a dinner party, or some other social place I cannot escape, is that I become VERY formal. He calls it ‘haughty’. I am not snarky, just extra formal. I did not realise I did that. Oh, well…

Couple glasses of wine, I chill out a little, rant to my husband about HOW FUCKING STUPID everyone is, we laugh about it, and I’m alright for a while.
