Leigh Ann describes the PMS symptoms she commonly experiences.
Well, before I started taking the birth control I had cramps, like most people do have cramps, but that physically, I don’t have them anymore because of that, but I do have extreme fatigue. Like, I’ll just be like, I have to go sleep. I have to go home and go sleep right now, or I am just a zombie throughout the day.
And most of my symptoms are emotional. Like last week I was at work and I was just angry because of little things, like something would just make me so angry I would just, and I am not, I don’t, I am very mellow person. And, you know, or if someone would say something that would be like flippant or something, and I would just break down and cry, and I usually don’t do that. I am usually pretty steady and can roll with the punches, but during my period and before my period I am, it’s like everything is exposed; everything is a raw nerve, and one little thing can set me off.
And so I just want to stay at home in bed all the time, and I crave lots of foods. I just crave food, like I just want to eat constantly, like I can’t ever seem to get full. That’s kind of a, that’s I think I just realized that because I’d be like eating, it’s like usually I don’t eat this much. I usually just have my meal and wait. But it’s like that’s a big driving factor. It’s like, I don’t care what we do; just give me food.
And so those are my, I don’t have the cramps, like I’ll have them briefly for like ten minutes and that’s a mercy because I have had them bad. And I know that every woman has felt that, and it’s horrible, but mine is more the, like I am psychotic. I feel like I am just up and down and like the enraged water buffalo that you see. You know, I am like the stereotypical, she’s got PMS. Don’t get in her way, or don’t say anything. So it can really put a strain on my relationships and my workdays and stuff like that.
