I have been sitting here this evening feeling absolutely blah. I feel depressed about everything, second guessing my abilities, wondering why I'm bothering to try run a business and look after kids when it would be so much easier to not do both, feeling fat, not being motivated enough to do any exercise, knowing I have so much work to do but just can't be bothered to do it.
And then it hit me, I have three pills left on my pack of contraceptives. Penny drops. It's almost that time of month. Suddenly even though I feel rubbish, I know why I feel rubbish. And that makes me feel better. I hate the way PMT stealthily creeps up on you. Even though it happens every month, it manages to catch me unawares every time.
I know. It's so crappy. More often than not dh notices/realises before I do. He'll ask if i'm due on soon in a timid please-don't-shout-at-me-I'm-not-being-sarcastic-It's -a-genuine-question tone of voice
and then I realise he's right and we all feel better as soon as we know why I've had a fit at him for daring to blow his nose or something.
I have discovered an exercise dvd which is kick-boxing based and it has helped me to combat depression and pmt/mood swings. I have been doing it for three weeks now and me and DH have nothad one argument in that time. Even DH has noticed a difference!
Ha, I do this ever month too. Suddenly every one I know is REALLY annoying and I have to eat vast amounts of chocolate (and ice cream and crisps, but it takes several days for me to twig!
What is the name of the exercise DVD?
