Times You Unexpectedly Acted A Fool, And Then Realized It Was Just Your Period
The most surprising thing about your period is that despite the fact that Aunt Flo comes once a month, these symptoms still hit you hard enough to catch you by surprise, every time. Maybe it’s because it’s a different bag of symptoms every month. In February you were mostly achy, in March you were rude to your co-workers, and April’s hasn’t come yet, but you’re sure the symptoms will hit you when you least expect it.
You’ll just be crying at a Saturday Night Live skit thinking “This is not right.” But a few days later, when your friend comes around, it will all make sense: the binge eating, the extra attitude. You’re not losing it. It’s just your period.
If you’ve ever had to play detective with your own emotions, get ready to say “same” to everything in this post. And if you have any of your own “Thank goodness, it’s just PMS” moment, we’d love to hear it in the comment section.
