One of those days

*apologies to those who may find this TMI, but it has to be discussed*

How can I be PMSing already? I just finished my period!! And yet, the last couple of days, I have had NO patience with the children. My irritability is palpable--I can feel the stress hormones coursing through my veins. After having three kids, I chose a non-hormonal method of birth control because I had had enough of hormonal fun. I figured three pregnancies and several years on the pill was enough hormonal surging and manipulation to last me until menopause. And yet, I never considered what my own natural monthly hormonal swings would be like. They're not all that fun. I'm not having fun today. I'm grouchy. Where are Ben and Jerry when I need them?

I can promise you that by Thursday I'll have some pictures of creations to post. And hopefully I'll be in a better place.

Sweetie, I hear you. I also know it seems to worsen after kids and as time goes by (according to my ob/gyn.) FUN FUN!! Hang in there and know that there is no rhyme nor reason. There can be off times of weird hormonal surges that
defy logic. It's your body's way of readjusting to the levels I guess.

You are NOT alone...
