Pre-menstrual syndrome, or PMS, is a real drag. I can literally feel my hormonal imbalance. I can feel myself becoming irritated with simple things. For instance, cleaning the kitty litter this morning. I became disgusted with where in it the cats chose to relieve themselves. It shouldn’t have phased me, but that’s what PMS does to us. Small, simple things, annoy us for no reason at all. Yeah, I can literally feel the nasty attitude I have associated with when I’m pre-‘monthly’.
Yesterday I had one of those days. The morning was like any other morning, but as the morning became the afternoon, my attitude went South, for no reason at all. My husband will tell you that I have a bad attitude during that time, I’ll admit it for myself that I have a bad attitude, but I’ll get over it in a few days. We all do. Just give me time to calm down by myself in my own way.
Our daughter has even realized that when I’m in a bad mood, unless she has physically done something to tick me off, she stays out of my way because I’ve repeatedly told her, I’m never mad at anyone, just the situation. I’ll get over the situation.
I don’t like being angry or feeling mad. It’s depressing, and it takes too much energy. It isn’t easy being a woman.
