Leigh Ann explains how PMS affects her relationships and if she refers to herself by an alter ego when she has her period.

Leigh Ann:
If I had known that I was like that, if I had known that I was on my period like when I was a teenager, I would have been able to guard myself or would have hoped I’d been able to guard myself. I was just horrible to my sister, to my parents; everyone would make me snap. I would withdraw; I wouldn’t want to talk to any of my friends. You know, it was really hard for me to express to them why I am suddenly not myself, and I didn’t know why.

I started dating my boyfriend last January, and every three months, except this past one, I’d be like “I don’t want to date you anymore.” And you know, and then I’d come out of it and I’d be like, “I am sorry. I do.” And so he’d be like, I don’t know what she wants from me. He is like, “I hate your period.” And I was like, “I hate it too.”

And so yeah, it’s a strain, but it’s a lot better now that I can tell people, I am not myself right now, so don’t come at me with any big information or just kind of pretend I am going to be a recluse for a while.

I am just like, I am just refer to myself as I am, I am nuts right now. I am nuts. I am just completely off the wall and not myself, and I am sorry. It would be like, I am sorry; I am not functioning right now. I am not present. I am not here.
