Well ill start us off!
I've suffered from pmt for about a year. I get very bloated for about a week before my period and get very short tempered and basically scream and shout at my bloke for no reason, but i dont know how to control it.
I've been told about a few things that can help with the bloating and pain but not how to control my anger so i thought id set up this community and we could help each other!!

Current Mood: crankycranky

Guess we're alone here!
I'll apply to join your community - if I can stop crying long enough. I'm searching the web looking for answers - I've been okay for about six months and suddenly been hit with this great load of bricks again. I pretty much keep my diet in line - but it was good before the problem started, it's still good, and I'm back in that Bad Place.
I was recommended Vit B6 for the second half of the cycle (low dose), I also use crushed linseed on my muesli and eat lots of grains, fruit, veg - I've never really eaten much processed food. Right now I'm just frustrated.
(Guess there's one good thing about this - don't I just enjoy menstrual cramps and headaches! They're so much easier to deal with, an' I know the problem's over for the next couple of weeks.)

yay, someone joined!!
I was told about trying vit B6 but haven't got round to it yet and i'm due on in about a week and i'm gonna get the rage soon :-/
I really hate myself when i just start screaming for no reason!

Yeah - I just haven't figured anything to prevent the sudden rages - except for one thing. If there's no trigger it doesn't happen. So if I stay away from people, animals and everything that might possibly go wrong, there's black depression but no bad temper.
As if that is much help to know!
Anyway, I'm kinda alive today, so that's an improvement.

I'm thinking of hiding once a month

What caught my attention here is that someone has written that "they are now" ...

I am in that "I am now stage"

I have never had any of the classic signs of PMS that my female counter parts suffer from. But suddenly at the ripe old age of 42 I find myself flipping out once a month. What is up with that?

Its not the message that bothers me, it's the delivery that sucks. I flip out with the one I love the most and let them know everything that is driving me nuts, everything I think they are doing wrong ...

This has been going on for about 3 months. So last month I counted 28 days and circled the calendar 'stay away weekend' to see if there really was a pattern. Well life goes on and I forget ... last night I flip out on my guy. After going back and forth for an hour on the phone ... I hang up feeling disgusted with myself, not knowing why I handled things so badly.

Then I thought of the calendar and looked at it. There in all it's glory was my circled weekend to stay away from people. Why is this happening now? Does it get worse? Does it ever get better again? Or do I really have to get away from people I love once a month????

I'm so confused and so afraid of driving my honey away ...
