Whatever man said PMS is only in a woman's head is obviously... a man. I didn't even realize it was that time of the month and I was feeling it. Some months I escape it, other months I have just a hint, and some months I feel fairly certain that my family wants to relocate me to Alaska.
I went to one of my favorite websites, Thesausus.com. Here is the list of synonyms for "grumpy":
- out of sorts
I figure I've been all of these- possible more than one at a time- at least once today.
On days like these, Oswald Chambers' spirit follows me around and whispers:
There are certain things in life that we need not pray about— moods, for instance. We will never get rid of moodiness by praying, but we will by kicking it out of our lives. Moods nearly always are rooted in some physical circumstance, not in our true inner self. It is a continual struggle not to listen to the moods which arise as a result of our physical condition, but we must never submit to them for a second. We have to pick ourselves up by the back of the neck and shake ourselves; then we will find that we can do what we believed we were unable to do. The problem that most of us are cursed with is simply that we won’t.
Apparently PMS isn't an excuse for bad behavior. Too bad 'cause I could use that excuse for every bit of bad behavior I feel like putting on display (I told my friend J today that I just feel like throwing shoes at everyone. For some reason she decided not to come over with her kids......)
Anyone else struggle with PMS? Any suggestions for miraculous cures? I'm open to just anything besides eating shrimp and drinking Pepsi.
(Anyone else see all the different sizes of the letters in my posts??!! No matter what I try, it won't be fixed. Geez Louise. What a day...)
