That time of the month
Tuesday, August 16, 2011
Hope this isn't TMI, but as that time of the month rolls around I emotionally check the hell out and go topsy turvy for a quick minute.
I have for all my life since I first got my period in the 5th grade been highly irregular where my period is concerned. PCOS does a lot to your body and one of the symptoms is irregular periods. Well for me I can sometimes go 2 years with no period then WHAM!!! Hello mother nature and with her she brings moodiness, crying binges, depression, tiredness - more tired than usual, and at time extreme b!tchiness.
Ever since I started working on getting healthy my TOM has been around more than usual which is great since that means my body is reacting positively to the changes in my lifestyle, but man oh man does it play with my emotions.
It was this time last month that I couldn't figure out why I was suddenly craving everything under the sun, feeling depressed, anxiety, and crying so frequently. When after 3 days of this my period came around and I cried cause I realized that I wasn't going crazy and that there was a chance that once my period was done that I could conquer these new developments.
So it has happened again and I am fighting to stay with my eating healthy and forgiving myself if I stray. I know that I surly am not the only one that goes through this crazy dance when mother nature decides to drop in for a visit. I can work through this and make it through.
I just needed to get this craziness written down so the the next time I start to freak the heck out I will know that I can make it through. I made it through last month. I can make it through this month.
I hope everyone is having a beautiful week and that it got off to a great start.
