It really sucks to be a woman sometimes but in the same aspect, its tough to be a man and have to deal with women too. Especially when a woman is premenstrual. I looked up the definition for this God awful aliment and this is what it said:

PMS is a disorder characterized by a set of hormonal changes that trigger disruptive symptoms in a significant number of women for up to two weeks prior to menstruation. Of the estimated 40 million suffers, more than 5 million require medical treatment for marked mood and behavioral changes. Often symptoms tend to taper off with menstruation and women remain symptom-free until the two weeks or so prior to the next menstrual period. These regularly recurring symptoms from ovulation until menses typify PMS, premenstrual syndrome.

So, the bottom line is, we only feel normal for 2 weeks out of the month. It seems that all of the problems in the word seem to hit during this time as everything is intensified by a thousand. Did you ever think about what its like to deal with us? I'm not the easiest person in the world to figure out sometimes, but add PMS to the mix, and it isn't pretty. What I have a hard time figuring out is why, if this same thing happens every month during the same time, do men appear shocked that they are now living with (or dealing with) a nut case rather than the wonderful woman they fell in love with? I bet more divorces and break ups acquire when the hormones are on the rise. I wonder if anyone has ever done a statistic on that? I think if you have PMS (and you know you have it rather than being in denial like some of us are, its much easier to blame the man) you should avoid as much people contact as possible and definitely refrain from making any life altering decisions. Women, lets face it, we may be wonderful mothers, wife's, girlfriends, daughters, and friends...but for 2 weeks out of the month, we can be a little hard to deal with.
