Ya'll, this month I feel like I've been possessed and need an exorcism.

Usually, my PMS is very mild. I get very intense cramps due to my IUD, but I've learned how to manage pain. Any mood issues I have is really due to being in so much pain.

For some reason, this month I don't have the awful cramps but I do have hot flashes and THE SHORTEST TEMPER IN THE WORLD. Like for the last 3 days I've been stewing in sweat and ready to break something. I almost cussed out my manager for being a slow fucking talking, rambling, fill the air with your nasty hot ass breath old man. I especially get so fucking angry by people who can just keep talking and talking but saying nothing of substance, SHUT. UP.

It's like I'm kinda wired up, and then I sweat, and that just makes me ANGRY. And then I get chills and get even more uncomfortable and annoyed smh.

I'm so over it y'all. I'm sick of being angry. (now I'm tearing up smdh). So annoying how anger is only acceptable to be released if you have a "good reason". What about because this is how my body is wired? There's always someone around, wish they would go away and leave me alone, I just wanna yell and be belligerent in peace (heh).

Actually, what is the best way to communicate something like this? I've tried to just ask for space but then people wanna know what's wrong, and you say PMS, but then they don't really take it seriously. Like, LEAVE ME ALONE this shit is REAL and I WILL hurt your feelings!! NOBODY WANTS THAT SO GO AWAY. What's also hard is the ignorance. This anger is purely hormonal, but people still want to attach some fault or incident to it. NOTHING IS "WRONG" IT'S JUST HOW BIOLOGY WORKS.

I feel you.

I'm on my second IUD, and even though it's the same kind, this experience has been so different. My first IUD mellowed out my mood swings. My periods stopped completely.

With this second one it's been a few years and I'm still having periods. My irritability before my period is absolutely insane. I'm a teacher, so I keep my shit together at work because you just can't go off on kids or your colleagues, but sometimes I just have to sit in my car before heading home for a minute because I am boiling inside and I don't want to get into a road rage incident. My poor husband suffers the brunt of my short temper, but he knows me well and he follows my period tracker too, so explain to me why he presses the damn buttons that he knows is going to set me off that time of the month?

I just want to be left alone during those times, but even when I try to shine it on it's like people can tell and they get in your space even more. Ugh! Go away!

I'm so sorry you're dealing with this, but you're in good company!

Omg what's with people who can't leave you alone, especially when you ask them to!!
