Full Moon Fever - any DH/DP/DWs suffer from this?

(17 Posts)

DH goes very strange around full moon, usually about 3 or so days before, up to a day after.

He has done it again this time. His communication has gone to pot, he is irrational and not making an awful lot of sense when he speaks about well a lot of things.

We argue more around this time. Its like he is having a different conversation to the one we are actually having. It is something i notice more and more and more. He refuses to acknowledge it.

Am i the only one? Are there any other's who's DHs (or indeed DWs) suffere from this? What are their signs?

And more importantly, how on earth do you handle it?

No? Just my DH then hmm

Perhaps no-one is responding because you are all pinned to the walls by your werewolf partners? Or are helping them shave the palms of their hands?

Its been like this all morning too. I will be unable to have any kind of rational conversation with him. Even the arguments are not making sense grin hmm

That must be really difficult to deal with, I hope you get revenge with PMT wink

seriously though, i used to get this really badly when i was younger. I used to go out a lot (most nights) and it got to the point where I couldn't really go out on a full moon as I would feel quite violent and have absolutely no tolerance of anybody. NOT good in a busy club.

took me a while to make the link.

It does sound like a male version of PMT!
I've been like this all week grin
mine always seems to tie in with full moon too, it makes me a bit loony wink

teameric Sat 31-Oct-09 09:21:59

you may find this interesting smile

PavlovtheWitchesCat Sat 31-Oct-09 11:05:37

iys exactly like pmt!

I haven't noticed this with DP but my mum says both my dad and brother go a bit funny around the full moon. Not sure it's as extreme as Pavlov's DH though. That must be very frustrating for you.

I used to work in a day centre for adults with severe learning disabilities , for a few days before a full moon the behaviour would be unbelievable.

Also, I was a school dinner lady for over 10 years and the kids would go beserk on windy days - how weird is that?

OrmIrian Sat 31-Oct-09 13:12:40

pavlov - that sounds like a conversation in our house last night. Only I was playing the part of your DH hmm

Never thought of blaming it on the full moon......

alfiesmadmother Sat 31-Oct-09 13:17:12

I go funny round the full moon, really! I get irrational, emotional and horrible!!

teameric Sat 31-Oct-09 13:20:25

have you noticed the moon on the top right hand corner of this page? (under advanced search) if you click on it, it tells you exactly what phase the moon is in at the mo, never noticed it before till I found this thread. Weird.
