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.


  1. There is hope. Post-menopausal means no more PMS.

  2. #1 - love the pic since I am mourning the end of 24. (Huge, HUGE Kiefer fan and loved Chlose)
    #2 - I swear, I never suffered PMS until this past year. Now, it's like an alien has invaded my body. I'm sore. Crampy. And downright bitchy. Poor husband didn't even get a warning.

  3. Mom - I'll keep focusing on the light at the end of tunnel.... and hope the train doesn't hit me on the way out.

    Dawn - I love, love, love Chloe with her smarky comments and constantly put upon expression.

  4. Been there, acted like that. With all of the freaky stuff about hormones now who knows what will happen to the world....blow up because of PMS.....I tried and failed so I went on estrogen....saved Steve's life.

  5. Post Menopause is the best except that now i get High blood pressure and am older
