I have evil PMT
It's pissing down. I have a hideous week ahead that has been brewing for months.
I am terrified, stressed and grumpy
I just want the whole world to do one and leave me alone whilst also feeling horribly lonely
Not sure if I need cheering up or a chance to whinge or both

I am always fucking grumpy, menopause is a bitch, but today is particularly bad. One of the dogs decided she needed me at 3am and has been a pest ever since (she's fine and healthy, just demanding!), I ended up sleeping on the sofa and have now got a stiff neck, my eldest son and his girlfriend are pissing me right off, my house is mid-decorating and I'm fed up of the mess, I've got shit-tons to do and CBA, I've got a lesson observation on Monday and just to top it all off I've just broke a nail!

Thank god there's chocolate in the house.

OMG yes, I am 5 days late so my PMT is intense. I am irrationally upset with a dickhead couple over the road and it's taking all my might to knock on their door and shout CUNTS. I suffer so badly from PMT.

I am a menopausal old bag. DD has royally pissed me off as she hasn't sent DP, her step-father, a birthday card, or a belated one. Despite many helpful reminders. They have a good relationship, and practically he does more for her than my arsehole of an ex. She put the tin lid on it when she sent a link to her birthday present request she is capable of some things then, and I am considering not doing anything about until the card. We need to go to the allotment taking an 8 mile trip round what should have been a 2 mile trip cos roadworks. And despite my eating less, have gained 2llbs in the last month. Not a happy bunny.

Glad it's not just me
DH is being a dick
The kids are being self absorbed twats
I have run away for brew
I hate feeling like this

baubled Sat 09-Nov-19 17:09:13

Grumpy here too, my relationship is more up and down than a fucking yo-yo and DP has just proven that he is a petty arsehole, thankfully he's gone to work and it's only 1.5 hours until DS bed time!! Can't wait for the silence

hobnobsaremyfave Sat 09-Nov-19 18:51:22

Today I suspect will only get better when it's tomorrow
Off to the pub shortly for some 🍷

CatUnderTheStairs Sat 09-Nov-19 18:54:13

Me too. Dh been illwith a cold for ever, I was asked out by friends and now regret turning it down as I couldn’t be bothered to drive. Probably menopausal PMT and it’s raining.....

theotherfossilsister Sat 09-Nov-19 19:07:42

Yes please. My city is over run with tourists, who won't walk single file, meaning you have to step into traffic and I hate them all very much, but might be over tired. I just got home from work and the heating isn't on, and DP was drunk last night, and kept asking 'are you awake?' every half hour from 2am (to be fair he hardly ever has nights out anymore, so it was nice that he did, but would have liked him to be less drunk/have a higher alcohol tolerance. Getting under duvet on sofa now and watching Peep Show, or something equally mindless.

DP has ordered Pizza. Might be less grumpy when it arrives.

theotherfossilsister Sat 09-Nov-19 19:09:32

Oh, also we are ttc, but I can't go on the ttc boards on here, because after ten months it makes me insane.

NoSquirrels Sat 09-Nov-19 19:13:27

Oh god, meeeeee.

There is not 1 thing going right. sad

hobnobsaremyfave Sat 09-Nov-19 22:20:07

And we're decorating
The house is therefore a shithole
I've given up and
Gone to bed

smemorata Sat 09-Nov-19 22:23:16

@theotherfossilsister I sympathise. My city was basically unvisited 5 years ago and then it kept on getting included on "hidden gem" lists and now it's full of tourists! It often pops up on mn as a great place to visit which annoys me even more!

kazza446 Sat 09-Nov-19 22:27:17

Yep, kids have driven me to distraction. I could have quite happily punched their lights out a few times today!

Supposed to be going out with the girls next week. I’ve been out shopping for an outfit today and have come home with nothing. I am just so fat these days 😩. Tempted to just pull out of the night out as it makes me unhappy ☹️

I’ve also started brewing a cold. Have bigger than usual bags under my eyes and a zit brewing on the end of my nose.

Car warning light has switched on today. Yet more expense...

My house looks like it’s been burgled...

Menopause is also kicking in. Having a shitty period too.

Apart from that life is ticketyboo

Bloody pmt menopause and peri menopause seems to be doing for nearly all of us on this thread
As if bastarding pregnancy and childbirth wasn't enoughangry

WeBuiltCisCityOnSexistRoles Sun 10-Nov-19 09:25:51

brewthankscake all round!

This morning alone:

I stood on the end of my (fabulous eBay purchase) velvet dressing gown and ripped it angry
The cat put her head under the pouch when I was squeezing it out <sigh> and now has Felix on the top of her head which is distressing her but she won't let me near it with a cloth. Oh and she is long haired angry
I've just recovering from being ill (hospital ill) and DCs have passed me a cold, I am really worried about relapsing angry
The oven doesn't seem to be heating up and I can't really afford a new one before Christmas angry

And it's only 9.30am!!!!

@smemorata my city is over rum, mainly in August, but we get tourists all year round now, and they will literally push people off the pavement. I hate it.

LordProfFekkoThePenguinPhD Sun 10-Nov-19 15:46:31

We are in central London - it’s all year round...

I am grumpy today.

Started off in a lovely mood this morning. Thought great it's Sunday, ds has played in his room for a bit and we've had a nice little lie in. We'll have some breakfast and then me and ds can do the slime making kit he got for his birthday.

I normally work both weekend days so we have been saving this for over a month.

Except my mum takes ds swimming on a Saturday, and yesterday my dad invited himself along too. I was in work all day (typical).

They have done the slime kit. Thrown away the instructions, fucked up the first batch, opened every single bottle and packet in the box and generally fucked it completely.

The kit was meant to make seven different slimes.

It's made one very runny one, and now no others can me made as they've used every pot meant to keep them in too.

It's a tiny trivial little thing, and I can just go out and buy another kit. But it's properly pissed me off. My dps are like bloody children they can't be left unsupervised or follow instructions.

Also it was ds's birthday present and they were there when he opened it, and I mentioned how excited I was to do this particular messy thing ds (as we both love slime, I find it very relaxing, he likes the fact noises it makes, it would have been a lovely little bonding time).

But no. They just opened it all up, fucked it all up because they can't (or won't) read an instruction and now this tiny little thing that I've been looking forward to for weeks has been taken away.

I am fully aware I am being unreasonable and a bit irrational but I was so looking forward to it and am just a bit disappointed.

I also fell off my bike and got mud all over my coat.

LordProfFekkoThePenguinPhD Sun 10-Nov-19 15:59:25

Maybe it’s the change of clocks?

Mistressiggi Sun 10-Nov-19 16:01:56

I am not grumpy because of something specific but just generalised Sunday grumpiness. I have to go back to work tomorrow and I start dreading it from when I wake up. Sunday's are a list of chores for me and seemingly none for dh, which ends up with me being even grumpier, but still doing the chores. Was so happy yesterday!

grumpyasagrumpything Sun 10-Nov-19 16:25:53

Pmt++++++++ here. Have been eating horrendously which makes it worse which makes me fatter and repeat
New boyfriend and I are falling out
Work is crazy and this week will be worse
House needs a major overhaul and I'm too tired to do it
I want to cry but feel like the tears are blocked. Something stupid will probably start me this week
Think I'm coming down with a cold
Too tired and grumpy to see friends

Would probably break your table so I'll hide under it

CigarsofthePharoahs Sun 10-Nov-19 17:25:59

Im grumpy because I fell over ice skating over a week ago and my bum still hurts.
It's not just a bit sore, it's a horrible jagged stabbing pain every time I sit down or move or anything.
DH actually called me defeatist when I said I wasn't going ice skating with ds yesterday. For the minimal exercise I got, it really isn't worth it. I also have fibromyalgia and I need to sit and rest regularly which I now can't do as it hurts. Now everything hurts and I need to be getting on with a project due the end of this month but I can't because it hurts.
And my thrush has come back, bringing with it some eczema. Ugh. Ugh. Ugh.
