Health: Living With PMS
PMS Is Managable
I don't know. Why doesn't anyone talk about PMS anymore? It is a health issue. It must still trouble women everywhere. I guess It's just that I'm past that point in my life. Thank God!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm not kidding. It was hard to live with PMS.
I remember one particular day when I was doing the dishes with a cast on that couldn't touch the ground. In other words, I had to hold my bent leg up while I stood. This was frustrating enough. To top it off I had a case of PMS to beat the band. I hadn't been able to move around. I hadn't gotten any exercise. I was eating on the run because I couldn't cook. I felt terrible.
I was standing there doing the silverware. You know, cleaning it before I put it in the dishwasher. For some reason, I had this stack of knives in my hand and I felt like just plunging them to the countertop. I don't know why. I just felt frustrated. PMS is real. I'm here to tell you that if you're suffering any of the symptoms that anyone can Google, I understand how you feel.
The thing is that it's debilitating. You can't get off the couch. You can't even get out of bed let alone do anything else There isn't anything you can get finished, unless of course it's of the utmost importance, like taking care of a child. In this case you have to realize that having someone else take care of your child for a time may be the be route to go. Then, you can go and re-group and get ready for the rest of the evening . But, this isn't always the way it works out. Often, we have no babysitter at our disposal. Then what? Yeah, We again have to do things we're not prepared to do, at the moment.
There is a way to turn this situation around. Coming together with other women through hospital sponsered classes and seminars, is one way to start to realize that you're not alone. That is, how you feel when you have to deal with this. Talking about it does help to some extent. Making an effort to do something about it is another thing. You know, the diet, exercise, nutrition, meditation, relaxation, vitimin, suppliments, and affirmation efforts that you read in many books on the subject. These things actually do help. Anything that makes you healthier is great way to combat PMS.
