I'm trying hard to battle the angry feeling that's plaguing me. I'm having one of those everything annoys me days. I blame the rage...the "Clomid Rage". I, of course, have the blinding headache it gives me and that I think is the anger maker. I'm already sensitive to noise on normal days but, today I think I could hear a push pin drop and I'd cringe.

Today is supposed to be my "rest" day when I take a break from my typical 30+ minutes of cardio and I do no toning workout. I still get in some exercise by doing 30 to 60 minutes of hatha yoga instead. Rest days are all about relaxation...usually.

The rage at it's finest...

We live in rural Missouri but, we have neighbors about 2 acres away and they have several children. I babysit for then often and I love these kids...most days. Today however, I, the PMS monster, ran them off and told them to go home and play. I was about 15 minutes into my yoga and they were climbing the fence, yelling, running, playing with their dogs, and being the typical little heathens they are which set my obnoxious and sensitive Min-Pins and ankle high mutts off (since I have no kids I'm like an episode of Animal Horder's with tiny toy dogs). I'm all for letting "kids be kids" but go be that outside your own home and annoy your parents.

My husband decided to attempt to find a lost battery charger. One of those tiny ones that holds like 4 AAAs. I have no clue what "I" did with it (naturally the husband never loses anything) and I honestly couldn't care less to find it today. After he crashed through one cabinet and leaves it looking like a tornado hit it, I went off like a bomb. He took it great actually. He just sat there and smiled and say "So you started your Clomid then?" Why yes Smarta$$, I did.

So here I sit taking slow deep breaths and hoping this month is the charm because I almost positive this stuff will make me desperately need anger management and it can't be healthy for my blood pressure. I'm trying my best not to be a total jerk but, it's taking massive effort. I should just watch movies and hide.

Now that dinner is finished I'm attempting more yoga. I could use the mellow. I highly recommend this seated hatha yoga video I found on YouTube. It's super easy to do sitting in the middle of the floor in my tiny little house.

    Weather might play a role in our moods. But I kind of agree with Vintage2Fairy. Why not talk to your doctor about the anger you are feeling, when you are not acting like yourself, and you are even surprising yourself, I think. Thanks for sharing, and I hope you are better soon.

    Hi, I'm a nurse and haven't heard of clomid - had too look it up. Does the MD that prescribed this for you know of your symptom of rage? You may want to if you haven't already I read about the headaches but nothing about increasing anger.
    When I get my cycle I have a day or two like you're describing. I'm not on anything. I guess its possible that it could intensify your PMS.
    Another thing I found interresting about your blog I'm having the same kind of day - cranky headache tired totally sensative to everything and everything frustrates me! In a way I'm glad I'm not the only one that gets like that from time to time.. But I do know how you feel and I hope it passes soon. Hang in there! emoticon
