Hari ni first day period. Just exactly one week after my meroyan episode. So, BETULLAH pms last week tu!. I didn't just made it up, you know? And it doesn't happen every month for crying out loud! I really think PMS should be one of the module in the kursus kahwin thingy, don't you think? So that, men are aware of its symptoms and know when to leave us alone and when to hug/cuddle at the right time *chuckles* (I think my only male readers are Lan and Azrul only! And oh, maybe Abg Idham :D)
So, what is PMS? Go and google. I found it here. And from the article/writings, the symptoms include mood swings (oh, definitely!), irritability (yes!), anxiety and tension (yes!), bloating, breast tenderness and swelling, water retention, acne (managed to get one pimple eveytime, sometimes right smack on the nose! ergh), tiredness (yes), weight gain(denial is a bliss :D), headaches/migraines, crying spells (aku kan ratu air mata), depression (very), sugar and food cravings (very high at this time), constipation and dizziness.
It also says "
Personality changes associated with this time can be very severe with some women describing a Jekyll and Hyde change where they literally become a different person pre-menstrually. Women say that they know they are feeling and thinking differently to the point of being irrational but they have no control over those changes. For some women at that time the world seems completely negative, 'everything seems black', doom and gloom and they will often cry at the slightest thing without any real reason". Ohh, I love this author! :P
I also read somewhere that only 6 out of 10 women go through this stage and they may have different symptoms in different month. Yes, I am one of the 6. If you have never (??) had the symptoms, then consider yourself lucky and I hate you. :P And please don't bebel about I-should-be-able-to-control-it talk. Remember how depressed you are when your favorite team lost the World CUP/F.A League/whatever? Camtu la rasanya, cuma korang tak nangis jek (ke nangis senyap2 masa tido takut bini nampak and gelakkan? :D). I cried when Brazil lost to France in World Cup 1998.
Hey, at least I have no problem admitting that I cried over a soccer match. And aku suka tengok bila players yg kalah tu duduk atas padang and cried. Not that crying baby type la. Jenis yg nangis senyap, air mata je keluar. For me, men who are able to express his emotion through tears are sexy. There's nothing wrong with men crying, at least you're letting it off from your body system. Betul tak? **larikkk**
