The Good... The Bad... The PMS

Things That Do Not Go Well With PMS:
  1. Husbands who are deployed.
  2. Children.
  3. Having to talk to people in general.
  4. The bathroom scale.
  5. Mirrors.
  6. My hair... I think I may just cut it all off the next time I am PMSing.
  7. People who drive on the same road as me.
  8. Telemarketers.
  9. People who are happy for no apparent reason.
  10. Diets

Things That Go Well With PMS:

  1. Potato chips
  2. Bread.
  3. Chocolate.
  4. Sad Movies (I recommend Steel Magnolias)
  5. All of the food in your pantry, cupboards and fridge.
  6. Did I mention bread?
  7. Screaming at the top of my lungs... my mother used to yell "GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!"
  8. I said bread right?
  9. Locking yourself in the bathroom for no less then 30 minutes.
  10. Crying... crying is really really good for PMS. Crying while you are eating bread is even better.

Locked myself in the bathroom for a crying session today, but a little hand started knocking before I'd even gone through one tissue.

Love this post! I can so relate. Got any bread? The commissary was out this week! :)

Back when I had raging PMS, I would have agreed with all of this. A deployed husband would have been the icing on the cake. Fortunately, I had a good friend who would miraculously call me and pray with me and take my kids!

I hope you feel better soon!

I'm totally with you - as I am PMSing as well. Another thing that doesn't go with PMS...husbands who like to make stupid comments. Yeah, add that to the list! ha!

Do be careful: I have cut my hair off while PMSing! Well, not all the way off, but much shorter than I normally would! My hair was just so annoying, it was the last straw. :)

Heather said...

I can definitely relate ... Hang in there! It will get better.

Hang in there! Good thing about PMS, it goes away... for a while...

And, I thought I was the only person who screams out "God Bless America!" and not during the pledge.

I'm so lucky that I hardly ever have any issues when PMS'ing. Chocolate does help but then again, it helps with everything.
What the heck am I talking about; I'm a man! I don't relate, I contribute to the problem. Did you try wine? Wine fixes a lot of things for me. I really like the Sutter Home White Merlot, it goes with everything (I would guess PMS as well) and I get a buzz without a headache. I blogged once about Jagermeister, do you need to go back and read that one again? I can pretty much guarantee that Jagermeister will allow you to enjoy your PMS'ing though you might have to try more than one application...I'm just saying.

Why PMS God ? What were you thinking, like life isn't hard enough. I wonder what women during the praire times ate?
Chocolate wasn't accessable to them , or most people until the very late 1800's

I just read this to my husband because it is SO funny. I'm 30 weeks pregnant and can relate completely to the hormonal craziness. Thanks for the laugh!!!!
