Have I overshared?

You think by now I would be able to recognise PMS for what it is. I mean it’s been happening every month for quite some time. But every month I spend a day wondering why I feel extra stress and emotional. Then I spend a couple of days wondering why I want to scoff all the bread and cakes I can manage. Then I spend a day wondering why I have an absolutely splitting headache. Then I can spend up to two weeks wondering why my breasts are really really sore. Then I wonder why I feel all bloated for a few days. And then the pains arrive and it usually takes me half an hour to work out what this somewhat familiar feeling is. Then I have a lightbulb moment, swear quietly under my breath and try and get on with the day. Since the grand ovarian cyst debacle and surgery of late 2010 (and I refer you to some posts from July, August, September of that year if you are new to The Spiralling Shape) these symptoms have become quite ad hoc, a little bit random and often arrive at surprising moments (early, late, in their own good time). Today is one of those ad hoc days.

    I don't think so. It's nice to know other people go through it too.

  2. No, it's not over sharing, a little venting does you good.
    For a moment I wondered if you were describing my sister! Hope you are feeling a bit better now.

    No, I don't think so either. It is strange how your mind knows something about how you are feeing but can't join the dots. You see, that's why women shouldn't be allowed to have important jobs (I've been watching Utopia Girls!!)

    thank you for letting me share 🙂
    It's silly that we don't share these things more often really isn't it?
