PMS

Many of you will identify with me, when I tell you that some days of the month are really tough on me as well as for my family !!
My journey with PMS started after I gave birth to my son. Some say it is the only time of the month when you are your true self. Well if that is true then I have a very scary true self & I definitely do not want to be 'that'. I get angry at every small thing, I never knew I could get so angry...
Some suggest exercising to keep the hormonal balance, walking is a good thing to do as it clears your head. Lately I have started Evening Primrose Oil capsules & have felt some difference in me but I think I need to do more on the exercise part. It is utmost crucial for the family to understand & bear with the lady at this time so that the sailing is smooth for all.

Hey Amie, A woman's life revolves around hormones, hormones, hormones! And therefore it is our blanket excuse to anyting that is beyond explanation. Between me and my friend, we have a little ritual- if she or I cannot come with any reason (for anything) we give a high five and say together- HARRR-MOANS! Try it it is very therapeutic (just joiking)

Iam also a victim of PMS in a suttle way. I have had other women tell me that its all in the mind. But I know when my hormones elevate....my blood boils for even the smallest reason. Pre-pregnancy or post, PMS has been the same. But I have realised that excercise is helping to put my mood-swings under control. It is all the more necessary because I have a 19 month old and he becomes the easiest target.
