Pre Menstrual Syndrome my butt. it can be before, during or after. hormones are sadistic SOBs, who respect neither time nor man.
oh yes. this is going to be good.
a friend of mine asked me in the comments a few days ago to write a post about PMS. i’m not sure i’m going to write what she thinks i should, but she’s use to me not giving her what she wants. you’re welcome, Laurie.
this is going to have to be two parts of one whole big monthly mess.
first up, guys.
gentlemen, PMS (in whatever demonic form it takes) is real. some women never experience it and are universally hated by those that do. but it can drive others to break most of the 10 commandments every 28 days. the
speculum spectrum is a broad and possesses colors and variations not seen in nature.
i’ve already outlined how to deal with an irrational female here. go ahead and read that, then read it again. when it comes to PMS though, i need to add one thing.
do not allow her to use it as an excuse to do or say whatever she wants to you. you are not required to have abuse hurled at you just because she’s on
the rag a rampage. feel free to say, “i love you, so i’m going to leave until you’ve got yourself together. call me when it’s safe and i’ll bring you chocolate.” and for the love of all that’s dear to you, like your junk, do not ever be patronizing to a woman on her period about being on her period. period.
alright, alright, okay now ladies. i see we gon’ break it down in just a few seconds. don’t make me break it down for nothin’…
Lord Jesus, please don’t let anyone be PMSing while they read this. i don’t want to be killed in my sleep. amen.
i understand that PMS and the hormones coursing through your emotions can make you feel compelled to do and say things you wouldn’t normally. i get it.
you don’t have any right to do and say those things.
you cannot control what is happening biologically inside your body, but you sure as $#!+ can control yourself. you can shut your mouth, you can put that bowl down you’re about to throw at his head, you can remove yourself before you hurt/abuse/yell at someone.
PMS is not now, nor has it ever been, an excuse to treat someone badly. learn coping skills, train yourself to walk away, get on meds, but do not just allow yourself to react to whatever emotion is taking you over at the moment.
and be quick to apologize when you do lose it. do not blame anyone for anything. chances are, those around you are desperately trying to keep the pin in that grenade.
because they know. you might think they don’t. but they do.
now, i’m going to let you process that for a few while i beef up my security system and buy a suit of armor.
ladies, what specific things do you want guys to understand about PMS?
any horror stories from either side of the reproductive system?
