As the hormones rumble about


I hate PMS.

I don't get cramps or headaches or nausea. But I get so damn emotional. I hate being emotional. I am truly unprepared for how to deal with it, these emotion thingies.

I thought a good spate of viscervals would purge the hormonal storm, but it didn't. Those just made my legs hurt.

I bet ice cream would help. And not that lip balm teaser stuff, and not those goofball city ici foo foo flavors like Spiced Mango Banana...but some good old fashioned chocolate and vanilla (the kind with the little vanilla beans). And maybe some fudgy sauce, but even thats not necessary. As long as its served 10 minutes out of the fridge and with a big spoon.

I need a hug.

PMS seems hard on women. Unfortunately, it is usually much harder for men. :)

it's the realization of how much control chemicals have on me that pisses me off

exactly bunny! and I know its just chemicals swooshing around that make me feel this way. And it bugs the crap out of me that I can't rationalize my goofy self through it.

Oh, hang in there tiger! Sounds as if you've figured out the winning plan though. Ice cream, chocolate, hugs=relief.

when i came home from work yesterday, pab tells me (with mint chocolate breath) that reading your post made him realize he had pms and so he ate a whole box of gs cookies and felt better

My rule is to throw chocolate and then run to the garage and hide!
