P.M.S - Piss Me off Syndrome

Image and video hosting by TinyPicThis entire week I have been suffering from PMS. Although I have been more irritable lately, I have also been extremely bloated. The bloated issues make me crazy. I feel fat, and like I could pop at any second. This is not a good feeling. My hands swell, and of course my tummy, the one thing I have worked so hard at making look thin, looks fat. I exercised every day last week to try and keep the bloating down but with no avail.

I don't normally write about this stuff, but at the moment, I'm a little fed up with it all. I can't take Midol, or any other "non-bloating" medication, because it makes my heart race and gets me all jittery. At the moment, I think I'd rather be having those side effects rather than the bloating. It's not like they show in the commercials, where you can get your pants to button, it's just this annoying, internal feeling of bloat. It doesn't matter what type of clothing I put on, I still feel like I look fat in it, because I feel like I am about to blow up!

So, when I don't feel right in my own skin...I tend to get a little grouchy. That's why I have deemed P.M.S to stand for Piss-Me-Off-Syndrome instead of Pre-Menstrual Syndrome. Just add an "O" between the M and S

Oh, and yes, I have been drinking lots of water (because that's all I do drink)...and still it makes no difference.

Thank you for bearing with me as I vent about my bloating. Feel free to join in, maybe it'll make me feel better :)

Gosh...I wish I could put my hands on it...I got this funny email once listing all the things PMS stands for. IT WAS HILARIOUS!

At least it will go away soon??

Hang in there:)

At this point I'd welcome bloating if it came with a period-I have only had one period since The Bean was born and it's like living waiting for the shoe to drop!

Still, I always hate feeling yucky-I hope you recover from your PMS soon =)

Wow, what a great name for it! I'll have to remember that next time I'm suffering from it! ;-)
