@izziebear:I’m sorry!  I don’t know what to say but if it makes you feel any better, I am in the exact situation.  PMSing, Emo, and the only difference is we don’t live together so we just had a texting conversation about it.  I told him I don’t even need to be engaged, I’m just dying to see him every day yada yada.  He said “Babe it makes me so happy to hear that.  It really does, but we have to be patient right now.  We have our whole lives together.” UGHHHH!!  Stupid men.  I keep trying to convince myself he is going to propose for Christmas, but he won’t until summer when we move in together, grrr.

At any rate, I identify with your feelings.  Everything has made me cry today.  Just remember, he has good intentions.  🙂

Oh yes.

PMS time makes the waiting HARD. Most of the time I don’t even think about it. It’s really no big deal. I have been thinking about it a lot lately due to the fact that he will be moving far away here in a year and a half and I need to make sure I’m ok and what I want etc.

Like I said though, most of the time I’m able to get through my day humming along not really thinking much more than “mmmm some day. it’s going to be wonderful” but when PMS time comes I tend to have break downs and sob fests that are just bewildering. Perhaps I should have a little week vacation every month so my poor boyfriend will be sheltered? lol he really really doesn’t need to know. My feelings at that time can not be trusted whatsoever!

Waiting was really hard on me, so I totally relate and PMS just makes you that much more emotional and it’s just very difficult…. 🙁

When I am emotional for whatever reason, I take a long, hot shower and just cry it out.  I would sit in that shower and just cry and cry and cry.  When I was waiting it would be over waiting, over PMSing, over the diaper commercial (I totally do that too hehe)… whatever.  I would just cry

It helps my body to physically vent all the frustration and irritation and whatever else I happen to be holding inside.  Then, I usually crawl in bed with a movie playing on my computer and an… adult beverage…. and just relax.

It doesn’t fix all the problems, but it does help me to have some kind of release of my emotions so that my Mr. won’t be taking the brunt of it. 🙂

Girlfriend… I feel ya! But I’m sure he’s trying to be considerate if you have expressed you don’t care for holiday proposals.  

It does sounds like your being a married couple is in motion.

From one PMS-er to another: try to remember that everything is amplified 100xs during this time of the month.  Everything comes to the surface.  And I am sure your emotions of wanting the “show on the road” are valid and legit.  Before you say something to BF, just think if it really serves you. 

Hang in there…I think things will happen before you know it!
