Does this happen to anyone else? It doesn’t happen every time to me, but maybe around once a year on average, my hormones play really mean tricks on me.
The first time I remember, I was 15 and burst out crying in chemistry class. As an adult, it can take the form of 1-3 days of thinking my life is horrible and seriously considering a really major and sad and scary life change. Like cutting off all contact with my parents, or breaking up with my SO and moving back in with my parents, or moving to another state ASAP, or thinking I’m depressed and need to get counseling.
The thing is, it seems SO REAL while it’s happening. I’ll even consider whether it’s PMS and then be like “no this is too serious for that.” The good thing is that I never act on these ideas because they’re so major, and they go away once I actually get my period. I sometimes have to wonder whether there’s a grain of truth to these ideas, but then in saner times I think it’s just because I was ticked off with my parents or SO or the weather that day.
Does anyone else ever go batsh*t crazy with PMS or is there something wrong with me? I’m hoping I’m not the only one with PMS temporary insanity stories!
