PMS is a bitch and can turn even the least bitchy girl you know into a bitch. And PMS is no walk in the park either. Not to forget the rampant rollercoaster of emotions we deal with a week prior to the actual event. Periods are a weird thing to deal with but a lot of people don’t realise that the run up to one can be just as crazy. One minute we are irritated and the next we’re jumping with laughter and the next thing we know, we just start crying for petty reasons. So basically, we have no idea what PMS will bring.
We’ll now list out things that go through the mind of every PMS-ing girl and how they end up crying and going crazy for the dumbest things:
1. The commercial
“I watched a ‘Dhara’ commercial, and I ugly cried for HOURS. Because even my name is Dhara and I suddenly realized how my friends used to pull my leg during school and how they were all so mean.”
2. The dog theory
“I saw two dogs that were the same breed, but they were being walked on separate sides of the road, and I thought that they might never meet. Hysterical crying.”
3. Morning fits
“Cool, I’m too fat for every piece of clothing I own and want to burn down my entire closet. Maybe if I just layer my largest dress with my largest sweater…”
4. Just when we feel we are fine, we realise the BF hasn’t texted yet…
“Why haven’t I heard from my boyfriend yet this morning? He never texts me “good morning.” He’s not romantic. He doesn’t love me. He doesn’t even like me. OMG, we’re falling apart. We have to break up before it gets worse. I’ll never find anyone else. How do I start over?”
“I feel like picking a text fight with my boyfriend. He hasn’t even checked in on me today or asked if I want to hang out this week.”
5. Shower mishap
“I got into the shower to take a bath and realized I was out of shampoo after I had wet my hair and the next thing is I started crying.”
6. Much needed! This idea is the perfect plan.
“I want to make a period store. Everything chocolate, soft fluffy things, sweat pants, heating pads, cramp medicine and much much more.”
7. When irritation hits you hard.
8. When only cheesecake is the salvation.
9. Sudden change.
“In the bathroom, I was having this uncontrollable, strangely involuntarily crying episode.
LOLOLOL @ my best friends on Snapchat. I can’t believe I was just heavily sobbing mere minutes ago! There’s nothing to be upset about. I’m insane.”
10. Late night thoughts.
Look at me. Look how easily my own reproductive system victimizes me. I’ve allowed my hormones to dwindle me down to this pathetic, sweatpants-wearing, wine binge-drinking, pizza-ordering, overly emotional mess. Why are Gossip Girls so amazing? I want to live like Serena in the Upper East Side and eat donuts and have ice cream and shop and just sleep.
I guess they understand only when we clear it out for them.
I’m sure girls who go through PMS would get this post.
