So I’m overdue for my period and feeling really emotional and tired. Woke up with a headache and later it went away after I took a paracetamal. Then hubby and I discussed and issue that came up. I was upset because I had my own plans for the day. And I vented and snapped at him undeservedly. Until he got upset at me. It took the whole afternoon for him to be ok with me again but I could see how much it stressed him and he doesn’t understand. I on the other hand went downstairs and pushed over a chair and smacked my face over and over as hard as I could and cried and sobbed for a long while.
Spoke with my sister about my meltdown and she understands fully as she also had bad PMS in the past and is going through menopause now. Spoke with my mom as well but she didn’t understand. She said she didn’t get PMS bad and her kids distracted her from her own feelings. But my sister had kids too and she got it bad!
My mother doesn’t understand me like my sister does. She’s too mentally healthy. She’s too normal to understand PMS and sza. She thinks my meds influence my PMS but I don’t think so - my sister doesn’t take meds.
So any fellow sisters (or informed brothers ) on here who can relate or give opinion? Does sza make PMS worse? Or AP’S?
What a day… at least I went to the Flea market and treated myself to a new hippie patchwork bag and a black Indian skirt. And took a long hot shower and wrote in my journal. I feel a bit better just having done those things. Hoping my period will start soon so my hormones can right themselves!
