Today is a bad day for me. Even the sight of my handsome husband hoovering the house fails to raise a smile. Ladies, I have PMS and it’s a bad month! Some months thankfully are not too bad. Aunt Flow arrives and she takes me by surprise. However, other months, it feels like an almighty build up for days before I am finally released from the unrelenting and ruthless sea of hormones swirling in my body. Sound familiar?
Normally I will like a joke and a giggle, today it is like someone has removed every humour receptor that I own. It is rather like being infested by a demon. A horrid She-Devil has consumed my every thoughts. She can only see bleakness and negativity. She ensures a rain cloud hangs around my head all day long. Even a spot of retail therapy and a bargain buy can not lift me. This is clearly serious!
As I go about my business today forgive me if I scowl at you. Also forgive me if I spit fire or steam rises from my head. If someone takes my parking space or runs in front of the car – God help you! It seems some months no matter how wonderful my diet, how healthy my life style or how many vitamins and minerals I pop I will be resigned to this mammoth all consuming low. Thankfully it should lift in a day or two (pretty please!!) and I can get back to smiling at strangers, seeing friends, cooing at babies, skipping with my children, patting cute puppies I pass at the park…but for now please be kind to me, say only what you really must (and make it very nice!), hand me a bumper sized bar of chocolate and leave me alone in a dark and secure room…
