    Why Is It Always Such A Surprise?

    It's always, "Oohhh, that's why I was so grouchy yesterday." You'd think I could connect the dots, but I hardly ever do. Sorry to all the people close to me for being petulant and impatient with you for a day or two every month. Glad you're not ever that way towards me (ha ha...

    For the past week, between Christmas

    and New Year, I have been nonstop PMSing. I haven't stopped crying, and I have this constant feeling of guilt. It's so hard to control my emotions. I wish that I can work to get rid of it, but I know that no matter what I will always be irritable before my period. It's starting...

    For as long as I remember my menstrual cycles

    It's bad enough that I'm stressed out with

    family stuff and with my job lately. Now I'm have to deal with this too all in the same week? WTF, I feel like I could strangle someone who ****** me off. I'm just so irritated and kinda needy at the moment.

    I hate PMS so much that I begged my endocrinologist to give me a shot that shuts off  hormones completely. I can't stand getting and it makes me hate being a girl sometimes.  I get so bloated a migrane headache and the whole nine yards.

    What I hate more is women

    who use it as an excuse to be really bitchy. Don't get me wrong. I know some women get extremely emotional during this period and get painful cramps, but other women get in to this mindset that having a period = it's okay to be a raging a**hole to other people. Don't believe me...

    Stay Away From Me This Week.

    People keep calling me a *****, well maybe I am, but when you are in this much pain as I am, you would be a ******* ***** too. I am going through all the hells of PMS right now, the bloating, the headaches, the mood swings, the bitchyness, and worst of all the pain.

    But Everything Makes Sense

    I don't keep track of my cycle because I'm not really getting laid much these days. I was having a really bad day yesterday. I was crying, felt really fat and all of my clothes were fitting weird.  I was also pretty socially awkward and didn't want to talk to anyone.  I...
