*I have mentioned before that every 28 days sometimes I have a little trouble with PMS, and I can have a lot some days that I just simply struggle with my emotions.

I know, I know, it's hard to believe, but it's true.

During my bouts with PMS, if my husband isn't spending all of his time trying to lay low avoid me, he is spending it asking me questions that irritate me I cannot ever imagine asking a hormonal sensitive woman.

I'll give you eleven a few examples:

1. What did you make me for dinner?
2. Why are you crying?
3. Is it something I said?
4. Oh, man, is it that time of month again?
5. How can you have your period every week?
6. Why are you crying now?
7. Do you want me to leave you alone?
8. Is there something I can do to "fix" it for you, honey?
9. Do you want me to yell at the kids?
10. Do you need a hug?

Or my personal favorite:

11. Isn't there a pill you can take for it?

I know that he is probably scared of me means well, and in his defense it wouldn't really matter what dumb things he did or said, he would still irritate me.

I recently went to the doctor for a check up, and I asked him about it, and he was just full of it himself wisdom and helpful information.......

It went something like this.

Me: "Doctor, lately I have been having a difficult time with pre-menstrual syndrome.
Since I turned thirty-five, all of my symptoms have seemed to be getting worse and worse with each month that passes."

Doctor: He looked at me very seriously and said, "Once a woman hits thirty-five, pre-menstrual symptoms tend to just get worse and worse with each month that passes."

(I'm really so glad he told me; I just simply had no idea! He really cleared up a lot of my confusion on the subject of PMS. If you also are suffering from PMS, I hope that this information can help you as well.)

Just think, he went through years of medical school to obtain all of that knowledge and wisdom. Impressive.

My poor sweet husband usually never sees it coming either. Numerous times He has suggested that I wear a scarlet letter "P" on my shirt as a warning signal, but I really don't think that is necessary. (Men are so sensitive sometimes.)

But on second thought, maybe a warning sign isn't such a stupid bad idea.

*The people mentioned in this post are fictional. Any resemblance to real people, living or dead, is purely coincidental. The events mentioned are also a very creative and imaginative work of fiction, and are of no reflection of the author of this post. She would never act moody or emotional around her husband. Ever. Really. She wouldn't. He always loves to be around her due to her consistently charming and delightful personality.

Okay, find another who is a female. If you are done having children, there are some new options out there for you that can help your situation. In my opinion a lot of male doctors just don't push for aggressive treatment on this stuff because they don't feel our pain. Oops! I'll climb off my soapbox now.

Sounds kinda like my house in PMS season...

I'm always here to chat sister.

And yes, I've read all of Sophie Kinsella's books except the new one too...I'm waiting for it to come out paperback.

I love her, she's so humorous. I zip through all of her books.

I've never read Emily Giffin, what's she like? Would I like her too?

We should start a book chat.

I feel your pain! My PMS has gotten worse since over the years too. Maybe a sign to warn my family would be a good idea. :)

So true! Of course I keep wondering if it is PMS or peri-menopause. It isn't easy being a woman!

BTW~I tagged you on my blog. Stop by when you get a chance and check it out. (of course I don't want to irritate you or anything)lOl.

Oh, and I just read your post on Noah (from Lelia's blog comments) and was blown away. You have such a gift!! Don't ever think you aren't honoring God through this blog because you definitely are. I am going to try and find that movie, Evan Almighty, it looks great!

LOL! I'm so glad that I'm not going through it now since I'm still nursing Hip Rider. Although, my dh says that I am. Ha!

My poor daddy....he had 5 sisters sisters and 4 daughters.
I don't know how he did it!
I had a hysterectomy when I was 39 and it's absolutely wonderful not to have to worry about "that" anymore! :)

You should have said to the doctor, "Oh, why didn't I think of that?"

Yeah, I can't relate, I NEVER suffer from PMS. ;o)
