Mega PMS


Monday, February 27, 2012

I'm in the throes of some hardcore PMS today. My mood just spiraled in the last couple hours. Dang! I almost just lost it when I couldn't find how to add a blog entry.
Despite all my hard work, my pants are tight. I'm bloated. Telling myself I'm bloated doesn't help me feel physically more comfortable, though. I'm just going to vent. I feel sorry for myself that I don't get to diet the way other people can because of migraines. So I lose weight slooowly. And I just ate something with sugar in it. Sugar maybe isn't really an option for me because it seems to make me feel terrible. I went without it for so long that I don't think I was aware of what it does to me. I almost just started bingeing and then I realized one of my favorite songs was playing ("Expecting" by The White Stripes). And then I felt like I already have what I want inside me. I closed the refrigerator door and listened to the music. I don't know if I've ever stopped when I was about to binge. Even though I stopped myself, I still feel mad at myself that I was going to do that, I thought I was over that. I feel like I'm going to cry. This is all PMS.

    I have had six neurologists in my lifetime and many medication tries. The medications offered many side effects but none seemed to treat the issue. Self-care. I did look up botox, but I can't see that it is indicated for classic migraines. I'm glad you've had success, though, Barrister! Do you have migraines with aura--the vascular kind? Mine are not related to tension, they're the electrical storm kind that are closely related to epilepsy (a diagnosis I lived with for years).

  You should consult a Neurolgist about the Migraines. Botox has helped me with my migraines.

Good job on not binging. Feel Better!

    Vitamin B6 can help with the emotions as well as the bloating. Really, it's like a miracle vitamin!

    Oh I feel you on the PMS thing, and the bloat thing...totally me right now too. Hopefully your week goes better, it's only Monday, and the bloat will go a way with it.

    I'm aware of the irony that I had a great morning and now I feel lousy. Sorry it's confusing, if you're comparing my status with my blog! I'm not used to mood swings, again, making me mad at myself today.
