Not This Again!
Do you know how to tell that you are in the grip of some serious PMS?
Scowl and furrowed brow? - Suspected PMS
Being on the verge of tears with little to no provocation? - Maybe PMS
The urge to rip someone's head off their shoulders because they made some innocent comment or asked a simple question? Ding, ding, ding.
For the last 10 years I have been under the mistaken impression that I was done with PMS. But apparently PMS' severity operates on a reverse bell curve. PMS hit me hard in my late teens and 20's. I learned to recognize it and then to apologize in advance to my husband for anything I did while in its grasp. Gradually it tapered off, tricking me into thinking that I was done being controlled by my hormones. But it's back, with a vengeance.
Pre-menopause PMS is a bitch..... I mean I'm a bitch..... I mean we're both bitches.
