Bring Me Chocolate and Maybe I Will Let You Live

I woke this morning feeling like I had been run over with a steam roller. Every muscle in my body ached. I had a splitting head ache. I was so angry at the alarm clock for interrupting my sleep that it almost met an untimely end at the hands of my closet door. I knew what I would find before I ever hobbled my way to the bathroom. Yes, Cyn is on the war path and I even make my own war paint. Everyone who has the unfortunately pleasure of living with me for the next 6-10 days knows the drill by now. Stay out of my way. I'll stay out of yours. If you have no other choice but to cross my path just lay an offering of dark chocolate or potato chips in front of me and run like he!!. I feel like I have gained 40 pounds. I have to pee every hour. I should take stock in Midol. I would be a millionaire based on my own purchasing habit of the product. And the heating pad will be my best friend for the next 2 days. I am quick to anger and even quicker at giving an innocent bystander a tongue lashing. It didn't always used to be like this though. Do any of you go Kathy Bates on the people you love during your time of the month or is it just me? Don't fear posting your comments. The green tea, 85% dark chocolate candy bar I had for lunch and the 4 Midol I took about 20 minutes ago will spare you, at least for a little while longer.

I've already done one of these for CanadaGal so my profound thoughts are there. But I'm sending you a couple of pounds of invisible Green and Black's Organic Dark Chocolate to help you feel a little more cheerful.

A couple of pounds?!?!? Just how much chocolate do I look like I can eat? Or maybe you are trying to imply that I need MORE pimples on my face this week? heheheheh :) Gotcha! But really that was what I said to my sweetie when he came home bearing a gift of 2 pounds of 85% dark chocolate bars for me to consume. He now brings home smaller ones.

They don't work like men think they should. Maybe if I started washing them down with a nice pint of Guiness. That might do the trick.

LOL!! Fortunately for me- I don't deal with that anymore. However, my meds for menopause can cause hormonal craziness at any given moment- probably once every 3 months and then I turn into the chick from The Exorcist and people need to stay away! It only lasts for a day or 2 but it reminds me of those period days without the cramps Hope you feel better hun!

I had PPD after having my avatar. Nothing anyone experiences during my monthly will ever come close to the h311 everyone around me went through for almost 3 months after she was born. I will take cramps and stabbing people with salad forks over that any day :)

Heheheh.,.. "going Kathy Bates"... I LOVE IT! Loved the movie Misery too... it was actually rather close to the book, and I like when that happens. I'm at my worst a day or two before my period actually starts. Once it's here, I'm just tired and whining, complaining that it's here, and wishing it would go away sooner this month. It never does. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who has to pee every hour at this time of the month. It bugs me that it means I have to go through twice as many supplies as I would if I wasn't needing to pee so much. Ugh! And I'm still not bringing you chocolate. You seem to have enough coming to you. I will share the chips though. Are doritos okay? Just the regular nacho ones.

Live a little woman. I buy the spicy ranch and buffalo wing doritos in the same bag. But I still separate them before I eat them. I guess I just love making more work for myself.

I'm in Canada. We don't have different flavoured doritos mixed together. That sounds very U.S. "melting pot"ish. ;) We believe in segregating our doritos. Sure, they sit on the same shelves as the others, but that is only for show. They never truly mix. :P As for living a little... I choose to try that in different areas other than food. I'm a wuss when it comes to spices and food.

I never realized it...till my husband pointed it out to me recently. I still think he's just teasing me...but yes, I do get very irritated around that time...and my husband and my son better stay on my good side around that time.

I think men try to make a joke out of it so they don't go crazy while we are in "that mood" but don't let them fool you or anyone else. MEN get PMS too.

i guess you need to monitor your bp or maybe make an appointment to the doctor ..since you had said that your not used to be like that.....since i really dont know your days routine that causes those irritation/bad temper every morning...

LOL well at least you have a sense of humor, I know the feeling. Thank God I don't have them anymore went through Menopause 5 years ago and all that is behind me. I don't crave chocolate like I used to. I like salsa and spicy things more now.
