Most women go through cramps, mood swings and migraines as that formidable time of the month approaches. But these are common PMS symptoms. Seriously, what’s new? Every month, I greet this essential part and parcel of womanhood like an old enemy. Now, instead of focusing on how my uterus lining sheds and all the bloody (pun intended) “same old same old” details, I thought of zooming in on the little, sometimes funny details that make my cycle even more similar or probably entirely unique compared to other women.
1. I open my wardrobe, sit in front of it and stare blankly into my clothes. After wasting my time doing nothing for about 10 minutes, I start trying on one clothing after another and tossing them into a big pile of “rejects”. This will probably last for at least half an hour until I finally realize all I wanted to wear all along was a plain t-shirt. And that I’m extremely late for work.
2. I become guilty of Misandry [n. hatred for men]. My patience with guys, especially those very close to me like my brother or Hubby, drops to 2.3%.
3. I cry myself to sleep, thinking how “tragic” my life is… After 3 days, when I’m finally off the PMS blues, I’ll realize that the only thing tragic about my life is the fact that I cry profusely over nothing at least once a month.
4. A couple of my body parts that come in pairs seem to bulge a bit. How I wished only my front tires were getting pumped up. Unfortunately, my back bumpers and thighs seem to increase in size once a month, too. Or… these could all be part of my imagination which also seems to go wild during PMS season.
5. I will swing, slide and flip from the peak of beauty to the pit of ugliness. My skin and eyes would look their best (or at least close to it) for about 10 hours before everything plunges into a catastrophic dive.
Those are just five of the silly things I do or experience during PMS — unless you count binging on chocolates and sweets which I’m actually doing right now. I’ve got an entire packet of jelly worms and M&Ms right beside me and I’m in no mood to share them. Yes, this is PMS.
I’d love to hear your unique PMS stories and bits, too! So don’t forget to share them below, yeah?
