How to Tell if You're PMS-ing

i've always thought that B has it made with me, because i don't get overly irritable or moody during PMS, but today is making me second guess that opinion. AF still hasn't arrived and i'm still not sure if all this spotting counts as AF, but i'm certain about one thing...i am hormotional. i know, i know. little ol' me? crabby, moody, and unreasonably angry? it's true, i am. (hang head in shame) in hopes that i can help others out there that are in denial about their true state during PMS, here's a little of what i've been experiencing:

  • i cringe every time the phone rings, because i just don't want to talk to anyone.
  • every time someone asks me to do something, i pretend i don't hear them. maybe they'll go away.
  • i find myself fixated on every little thing that irritates me (aka- everything). it's to the point that i can't focus on anything else. did i brush my teeth this morning?
  • i am easily frustrated by even the simplest of tasks. like trying to put my hair up in a bun, because the a/c in my office is broken and it's 90F outside (which doesn't help). i can't get the bun just right, because of my layers. i'm thinking about pulling a britney and shaving my head.
  • i'm even getting annoyed by someone who isn't even at work today. this is so not the day to give me someone else's work on top of my own.
  • i'm this close to closing my personal email account. if i get one more notification that my email address was chosen to win a 250 million pound lottery in the UK... when will you hacks figure out that we don't believe you and have no desire to give you any of our personal information?!?
  • small talk is like nails on a chalk board right now. get in, get what you need, and get out. every time i hear another person's voice, i want to put my fingers in my ears and start humming nonsensical melodies.
  • now, i wouldn't go so far as to call it road rage, but this morning, i had to fight back the urge to play bumper cars with the rude drivers surrounding me.
  • i'm exhausted for absolutely no reason. i went to bed at 10:30 last night and woke up at 7:30 this morning and i haven't done anything strenuous enough to warrant a nap, but i'm having an awfully hard time keeping my eyes open. maybe i could get away with a nap area under my desk like george costanza.
  • i have zero motivation to do anything. i am such a bum today!

at this point, you're probably pitying poor B for having to live with a crazy person like me, but i claim temporary insanity. i just hope i'm not the only one of my kind! please tell me you have a crazy PMS side, too!

And Again...

you're probably wondering why i've become such a yo-yo blogger, especially because i used to post so faithfully. i always chalk it up to dealing with life, but this time i swear it's true! :) i recently went back to school on top of my 9-5 job and my photography business. busy does not begin to cover what i've been! but, here we are, day who-knows-what in yet another long cycle. i'm blaming this one on the stress of school and work combined. actually, i'm not sure if i've started a new cycle or what. i started spotting last friday and it has continued since. (here's where it gets graphic.) it's not my normal beginning of AF spotting, either. this is more of a brownish discharge. no cramps. no sore breasts. nothing. i feel completely normal. i definitely don't feel preggo, which helps me not to get my hopes up. i tried to call my sister yesterday who serves as my bad luck charm, but she was out. normally, i call her when i think i might be PG and i wind up starting AF the next day. i know that sounds weird, but it usually works to help me not get overly excited or anxious and keeps me from wasting a test. like i said, though, i'm not feeling PG, so i'm wondering if maybe all this spotting is just AF. if so, i can definitely handle a cycle like this! just to put my mind at ease, though, i stopped at the store on my way to work this morning and picked up a pack of First Response Pregnancy Tests. if i don't get a normal flow by friday, i'll POAS. it's really a nice change to be able to look at this from a non-emotionally-invested standpoint, though. there's much less pressure and i know i'll be fine either way.
