PMS... for the last time?
PMS time again. It's such a weird sensation. My latest analogy (because I can't go for more than 24 hours without coming up with a crummy analogy for something) is that fighting off PMS is like fighting off drunkeness, except instead of struggling to overcome cheerfulness and dizziness, you're fighting off grumpiness, paranoia and sore boobies.

I use alcohol as an example because the effects of alcohol have a physical (rather than a mental) origin: an overabundance of a substance in your system. PMS is rather the same, it's just a different type of substance at work: bloody hormones.

For NEXT month I have a weapon, though. I got a new Pill presciption. Gonna start after this coming period. Three months worth are sitting in my wardrobe and supposedly they're good'uns, so... field testing time!

Good luck! Here's hoping the New Pill is all it's hyped up to be!

Good luck wishes from me as well! I know you've struggled with finding one that works for you, and Lord knows I feel blessed for how my Pill has solved my period woes.

Well, I guessing we will hear one of two things from you in the coming month.

1) Nothing for 28 days and then you signing the praises of modern pharmacology.

or

2) That you body likes the new pill so much it wants to be an extra in Texas Chainsaw Massacre IIV: The Bloodening.

I rooting for No.1!

I've come to the conclusion that your uterus is the bitchiest friend you'll ever have. PMS, periods and cramps is what it gives you when it's being nice. There's soooo very much worse waiting in the future. Like babies. And menopause. And cancer. Damn reproductive organs, nothing but trouble.

Good luck with the pill, it's worked pretty well for me in the past.
