My Period Diary – My PMS makes me feel depressed

I spent the entire day in bed feeling sad

About 1 week before my period started, my PMS symptoms began… First I started to get really irritated at things that normally wouldn’t irritate me. Rude clients at work.. clients not listening to me and wanting to argue when I was just trying to help them. I knew I was feeling off because normally clients don’t get to me and I just brush off their rudeness.

Then that night I felt very depressed. The kind of feeling where you just want to lay down and do nothing. I felt like I was failing at a lot of things in life and I just wanted to lay down and do nothing. That’s exactly what I did the next day – all day… I laid in bed and slept.

It’s weird to think how much my hormones and period disrupts my life sometimes. Cramps, cravings and period diarrhea – that I can deal with. But my PMS can really disrupt my mood and literally my entire day sometimes. #PERIODBRAIN

The next day I felt better and although still emotional and feeling a bit down, I got through my day, went to work and did my usual stuff.

A few days later my flow started just like I expected.

My boobs really hurt right now too. They are swollen and it hurts just walking down the stairs… girls that have experienced this.. you know exactly what I mean!

And while having a period is just so annoying (LOL), I am grateful that I have my period. Several weeks ago I was experiencing some tummy problems and went to see my doctor. She made me take a pregnancy test just to rule that out and though I knew I wasn’t pregnant – the thought of that reality scares me!

Anyways I’m on my period right now. The flow is slow so far and I’m not feeling as irritated as I was a week ago. I’m still feeling emotional though like the kind where watching this commercial can just make me start sobbing! LOL
