So, I am now munching on my foot (tastes great with ketchup!) as I realize just how bad PMS must be for some people, and I am staunchly apologizing for not being more sympathetic (don’t expect monthly roses, though).

Normally when I get my period I barely notice it until it’s soiled some pants, but shit, now that I had a chemical pregnancy that has left me more clinically insane than Courtney Love on a drug binge, I have a ton more respect for hormones.

(as an aside, every time I hear the word “hormones” I think of that scene in My Big Fat Greek Wedding where what’s-her-faces aunt is talking to her future in-laws and says “bibosy”–biopsy–and “hor-mone- eees” for hormones. Cracks me up)

I’m up and down and sad and anxious and generally probably pretty annoying to put up with (I can hear Dave counting down the minutes until he has to go back to work as I type this), so I’ll be back when I feel more righted and less manic-depressive.

*Shit*

  1. I’ve heard the hormone surges after a miscarriage are monstrous. I’m so sorry for the whole deal. Hugs to you, B.

  2. Hang in there! I’ve been on a bit of a weird emotional roller coaster lately myself. For about a week I was really bitchy and pissed off and irritated by everything. Fortunately I am feeling a bit better! Hope you feel better soon!

  3. I’ve been there too, the hormones after the m/c…a big not fun rollercoaster from hell. My cure…rum and coke, jack and coke, coke and ummmm just about anything that’s 80 proof.
    Oh and a good cry helps too.
    xxoo

    p.s. Feel free to email me if you need to vent, I can handle it, promise.

  4. Hormones bite a big…whatever you want to say!

    I’m sorry, I’m here you know that, buzz me or whatever! Big hugs to you and lots o love!

  5. I so wish we lived closer. I would invite you over for some hate (where we just hate everything for a little while), chocolate cake, and a hug. 😉

  6. I hear you on this. I seem to have developed PMS in just the last six months and it makes me feel really crazy. I never really “got” it before, now I can just feel the hormones and I have to stop myself from screaming at people for no reason – Oy!

  7. I have really bad times with PMS. Though I notice the physical side (fevers, puking, cramps, inability to get out of bed) more than emotional side in the moment. Then when I look back and say “why the hell was I crying in traffic yesterday?” I realize it was hormones.

  8. You poor thing. Since I’m old as hell (as least I feel that way today), I’m smack in the throws of permimenopause. I don’t get too bad before the period (which is so heavy I have to double up on the pads for a day or two), but when I’m ovulating……..watch out! I hate everyone and everything, then a few days go by and I wonder what that was all about! Then I remember…. oh yeah,Hor-moans!

  9. Aww, sugar, you’re not crazy. I’d send you a big old hug, but I really don’t care to be bitch slapped this morning – I’ve already been wrestled into a wicked Indian Burn by a five-year-old, and my poor fragile ego can’t take another blow.

    Meanwhile, I hope you regain your balance soon, and this is YOUR blog so be bitchy, weepy, ebullient, or weird to you heart’s content. We’re in YOUR space, if we don’t like it we can twiddle out thumbs in the corner or something.

    Oh, and? Try horseradish with that foot…gives it a little kick. Hah!

    Shade and Sweetwater,

  10. I usually switch from chocolate to salty chips, all while downing a good smooth whiskey. I find that helps tremendously.

  11. I hear ya girl! I’m totally PMSing right now along with being sleep-deprived after a lock-in and running a 10K…not a pretty combo. I suggest lots of chocolate and wine. A nice hot soak in the tub does wonders too.

  12. oh fuck. I am so totally behind on blog reading & I just caught up with you. fuck.

    pouring you a giant glass of merlot and trying to shove it through the computer monitor to you.

    xo
