LEMON?? WTF! YOU KNOW WHAT KIND OF DONUTS I EAT! I carried your children. Look at my stomach now (points at stretch marks). I had a VERY cute stomach and now I’ll NEVER wear a two piece again. Had I known, the last time I wore a bikini, that it was going to be THE last time I’d be wearing one EVER, I’d have taken pics. Now it’s OVER. πŸ˜₯πŸ˜ͺ😒

This was an actual conversation as a result of having received lemon-filled donuts instead of the red jelly.

Whatever it is…. DO NOT tell me I’m hormonal. 

You have to wait 3 days then we can laugh about it.

Thanks to a birth control switch I haven’t had any real issues with PMS lately *knock on wood* but I totally know the feeling of it suddenly sneaking up on you – it’s a little scary how one second you feel totally fine and the next you pretty much snap. 

Anyway, earlier on in our relationship SO made a completely harmless joke about me doing yoga (something about just taking a nap for an hour) which, under any other circumstance, I would’ve found funny. But nope, not that day. I burst into tears and had a meltdown because I felt like he was criticizing me, making fun of me and didn’t take me seriously. I think it freaked him out a little bit because we hadn’t been together that long, but he felt so bad that he bought me a really nice yoga outfit afterward because he wanted me to know that he supported me. πŸ™‚

I’ve had way too many of these.. the worst that comes to mind was when I burst into tears at a bagel shop because they didn’t have the type of bagel I wanted.. hahahah it was real fun explaining to the guy why I was so upset. It didn’t help that after a got my second choice bagel I ended up dropping it which of course made me weep even more.. I don’t think I should go in public that week lol

bklyn18 :  Haha oh this would be SO sad! I feel bad for both you AND the poor bagel guy lol

I cant think of anything emotional I’ve said when I’m PMSing (although SO may have some funny examples lol), but I say a lot more dirty stuff when I’m hormonal because ALL I CAN THINK ABOUT is sex lol. Just out of nowhere I’ll text SO about his sexy body or how bad I want him haha. I’m not sure he minds too much πŸ˜‰

bklyn18 :  haha I totally know what you mean, I would definitely react the same way some days lol. Oh not to worry, I have other symptoms, thats just the most prevalent one most days. I switched BC and stopped getting periods but kind of just mildly PMS all the time right now. I think SO would like it much more if we werent long distance haha. Right now I’m mostly just a sexually frustrated ball all week til i get to see him lol, then will cry out of nowhere when we’re cuddling on a sunday cause I have to leave that evening lol.

Last month it was 30 minutes of uncontrollable crying to Darling Husband about the bunny that keeps showing up in our yard and why it won’t let me catch it because I was worried it would be scared in the rain storm that was coming that night and what if it was cold, drowned, starved to death, got hit by a car because it was raining and they couldn’t see, etc. Poor Darling Husband felt so bad he went out in the rain to try to find it πŸ˜‚

desertgypsy :  haha! Yes, that used to be the same for me too before I stopped getting periods! Now its just sexy thoughts ALL the time lol Ugh. I knew it would happen and I warned SO before I switched too. He said he doesnt really notice too many other side affects besides the odd unexplainable funky mood.

leilarobs2 :  90% of my PMS tantrums are food related. Usually because my husband picked up dinner and didn’t order something for me exactly how I like it. Don’t you know me at all? πŸ˜‚

UK-bee :  Exactly! Telling me I’m PMSing when I’m PMSing? Enter rage.

I think the worst was when there was an advert for a funeral directors on the TV. The (fake) funeral was for an angler and the car went past his fishing spot and all his friends stood up and raised their rods. Well that caused me to howl non-stop for about 20 mins. I don’t know any anglers and nobody had recently died in my life, so I don’t know where it came from.

I was hysterical when Darling Husband walked in through the door. He asked what was up. He thought someone had actually died. Through my sobs I explained the advert and he said “is that it?” Is that it?!?! Well, that was not the thing to say. So what followed was a rant (with hysterical crying) of how he had no soul the proof of this being he didn’t cry at bambi and some day he was going to die and “do you not want your fishing friends to see you off?!” Not really, he replied as he didn’t fish. Then anytime he tried to ask if he was ok, I’d start crying about the advert again and then tell him he was going to die.

Nature’s cruelest joke–peri menopause.  The functional equivalent of YEARS of PMS.  Fortunately, you lose your memory, so you aren’t haunted by the awful things you said to people.

I was super irritable for YEARS.  The worst part was, it never dawned on me that the problem could be *me*.  As opposed to the world just not running properly.  A friend figured it out.  She’s a bit older, so she knew from ugly experience.

And what can you do about peri?  Nothing.  Get drunk.  I’m one of those happy drunks who loves everyone deeply–and I mean that.  I imagine you can take hormones but I always had so much trouble with bcps, I just didn’t want to mess with it.

You’ll find yourself actually looking forward to menopause.  Meno is actually a day at the beach compared to peri.  I became fit to live among decent society again.

I can’t think of a good PMS story, but I do have a favorite along those lines.  We used to have a police scanner to keep track of wild fires in SoCal.  It could pick up transmissions from San Diego PD, interesting stuff.  And my former neighborhood.

So the police get a call about a shoplifter in a private convenience store.  They arrive on scene and the dispatcher tells the officers that the owner is reporting the value of the stolen item to be about $6.00.

When all was said and done, they went pretty easy on the guy.

And what did he steal?  Midol!
