When I say contrary to some beliefs I will use my husband for example. He would often ask me "Are you on your period?". Now every woman out there knows that this is the most infuriating question ever to be asked. Let me tell you why. When this question is asked, you may as well just say this "Your feelings are quite irrational right now and since I think you are on your period lets disregard what you are saying". His next
Lets take some facts here. PMS, it is not a choice, this is what we call hormones! Chemical changes in the brain may also be involved. As us woman all know very well these are the most common
- Food cravings
- Mood swings
- Crying spells
- Anxiety or depression
I am sure I am safe in saying that every woman is just as unhappy about having PMS. Nobody wants to be miserable. This brings me back to thinking about when I was pregnant. The symptoms are not all that different. They are hormones after all. When you crave the odd item and HAVE to have it, it can be irrational at times.
I once heard a story about a woman who was pregnant and she asked her husband to get pizza for dinner, she went to have a shower and whilst in the shower was happy at the thought that when she got out she would soon have pizza. When she got out she found her husband did not order the pizza. She fell on the floor sobbing. This my friends.... This is classic hormones.
Now I will give you one of mine.
My husband and I are getting ready to put our children to bed. They are 2 & 4. I say "I think I am going to go to the store to get some chocolate". I have been in a irritable mood all day but this one last saving grace I think I am gonna go for it. I thought, he can put the girls to bed and I can go pick
us me up a snack. He quickly says, ok, after you help put the girls to bed right?.... .... ... Wrong! It was done, I was having an emotional meltdown. I was irritable, irrational, my mood went from ahhh this will be nice to how dare you! Was I being irrational? Absolutely, but in the moment I was angry. He was supposed to understand that I wanted it now.
I read somewhere that a woman said "If having a period burned calories maybe it would be worth it" Amen sister, amen!
