We’re all familiar with it. One day, you wake up with tears in your eyes, you go straight to the fridge, and you decide that demolishing a whole tub of Ben & Jerry’s for breakfast is a very good idea, then you get in an argument with your boyfriend — “Do you love me? You do? Well maybe you love me too much!!!” (tears) and you’re off to a great start for the day (or week, or ten days) of your dreams, thanks a lot PMS monster.
For years, I’ve been managing my PMS like a ship in a storm. There are times when it goes unnoticed, the sea is fairly calm, and other times when it’s a real disaster and I’m a walking emotional catastrophe (and I’m not even talking about the physical symptoms like sore breasts, shiny skin, and everything else…).
But this morning I woke up right in the middle of a PMS crisis once again, and I told myself it was getting to be too much.
My life can’t be controlled by my hormones!!!
So I decided to try meditation (apparently, it has a really positive effect on mood swings) and I downloaded an app, Clue, which will send me alerts when I’m about to start PMSing, so I can warn everyone around me to shield themselves, haha.
I wonder if I should also have my hormones tested, and I’d like to explore natural remedies too.
Do you have any advice for me?
