    A few days before my period I will literally

    eat every last thing in the cupboards i can find, my mums always like "Damn it Lindsay why do you always eat all the food in this house!" and then when she's finished giving me a lecture she'll say, "You're periods must be coming soon!"

    I get phantom period feeling

    for about three days before I actually get my period... I.e I wake up and think it's started and every time I go to the bathroom I expect to have come on, but I haven't.

    I have temper tantrums,

    I scream and leave myself asking why I got so angry over nothing. I have PMS.. No cramps, no other issues just rage. It goes for a few days and then Miss flow arrives.

    I become such a b1tch.

    I feel so remorseful after realizing why the sudden aggression. It's kind of fun though. I never have the balls to put people in their place until my period comes xD Too bad the feeling only lasts a few hrs. And I'm also one of the lucky ones I guess. The day before my period...

    Fatigue

    I was so so exhausted earlier. I couldn't bring myself to get out of bed until 2 or 3, I just couldn't be bothered... People calling me, I didn't care. I wasn't getting up.
