I hope someone can help me with this, each month on the morning my period is due I wake up feeling angry and upset. My dh and ds have to bear the brunt of this, I don't do any physical harm but just criticise them, they can't do anything right I don't want my ds to grow thinking his mum is a nutter!!!

I have had enough of feeling like this each month, today I'm fine, it is just for the first day, has anybody else felt like this and what helped you??? Any suggetions

You are lucky it is for just one day-mine is for a good few days before and this month for a few days after-I could kill!!!

taking the Pill. otherwise evening primrose oil or vitamin b6 are meant to be helpful, but have never tried them. the very worst thing I found for this was the mini-pill

I don't have know if I can help, but you are not alone! I am suffering at the moment, I hate everyone, everything, snap at the tiniest thing! My dh is used to it and just puts up with my erratic mood swings.
Thankfully the sun is shining and I will vent my energy on the garden.
I've been told to keep my sugar levels up as a drop can make you feel worse.

thanks ladies, glad to see it's just not me!!!

dropinthe I know what you mean!!!

Amberlilli does that mean we can eat as much chocolate/sweeties as we like cos it's helping us

MTS trouble with the pill is that I forget to take it (memory loss as well as everything else)and dh might think his luck is in anytime

a friend of mine came into work once with bruises - her husband had had to pin her to the floor to stop her stabbing him with a kitchen knife. on other occasions she attempted to attack him with a milk bottle and a hot iron. she was normally so sweet tempered but she said when she had pmt he could say something completely innocent and she would flip. she admitted if he hadnt pinned her to the floor she really would have stabbed him! im not as bad as that but get very grumpy. luckily dp is very unerstanding and i aim it all at him so the kids dont get upset about mummy shouting (doesnt always work but mostly does). definately eat as much choc as possible!
