I suffer the worlds worse pmt and as I'm pmt right now, I can safely say it makes me go temporarily crazy! I feel like my head is spinning round crazy, sane, crazy, sane! I can't be around people but I want to throw heavy objects at people because I'm just SO annoyed all the time. When the anger settles, along comes the emotional crying time where I just feel like I'm the most depressed woman on the planet! My boyfriend doesn't know if he's coming or going at my time of the month, and neither do I for that matter!
I'm not the only extreme case am I? Anyone any tips on how to calm pmt a little?
ive got PMT at the moment, i never thought i was bad, until my mum told me i am awful.
Ive just rang DH at work and went crazy down the phone, he was supposed to be taking me shopping, but he's late... i shouted and screamed like a mad woman, his boss heard (he was best man at our wedding 6 days ago) and ive completely embarrassed myself, once i stopped shouting i started crying like a loon!! In my defence he isnt even supposed to be at work today, hes supposed to be spending time with his family before he goes to Iraq on Sunday.
Ooh, my sympathies. I can totally relate as I too scream like a banshee, and get violent rushes of anger that seem to come from nowhere. I have had blazing rows in front of DS and ocassionally other members of the family, and have been known to throw heavy objects/fists around. God it's awful. I am quite a bad tempered person in general (at least according to all my family and DH - i of course think I'm perfectly reasonable ), so everything just gets amplified.
How to deal with it? Nothing really worked for me except going on the mini-pill, although I know that can cause other emotional problems for some people, like depression. I definitely feel like I'm on a more even keel, and don't get huge rushes of uncontrollable anger. Still feel a bit ratty sometimes, but who doesn't, pmt or not?
well, it was today, but there's no way I would ever tell anyone what it was, they were as it was a string of evil things.
Full Moon + first period since having Mirena fitted + first period since coming off ADs = probably scarred my son for life with my banshee rants. I really feel like I am perfectly capable of murdering someone in cold blood today. Seriously I feel I have the strength and any minor misdemeanor even looking at me in a funny way would be the trigger. Don't tell the rozzers
I went to the gym and worked out hard to loud rock music which seemed to chanel the energy somewhat and I am just going to zip my mouth shut for the rest of the day and get an industrial strength evening primrose capsule.
Don't have that trouble at all any more! But I remember all manner of things. Once threw a pan of beans and sausages (just off the hob!! ) over an ex who was being a twat (in my pmt addled brain). He was injured. Cried a lot every time. Oh I once kicked in my front door because the key wouldn't turn I have lashed out physically on occasion too, to my great shame. I've told dh I don't love him. Smashed plates on purpose. And lots of other stuff. I used to go psycho! I am bloody glad I don't go through all that any more!
Oh - it was all everyone else picking on me and the world hated me, of course!
Peed in some spaghetti bolognaise - only a tiny amoung and let my evil sister eat it - I was 15 and she had beaten me up - I made her dinner as a making up things and then my evil streak got in the way.
God I am an awful person but she is a violent bully and revenge was served hot and tasty!
Not me but a friend of mine once sheepishly showed me the huuuuuge holes in her bedroom door. In a PMT rage she had pulled up a long, fake pot plant whose stems were embedded in a concrete base, she was swinging it around her head while bellowing at her dp, he shut himself in the bedroom in terror and she, still swinging the pot plant, attempted to bash her way through the door Shining style.
