Have you...

1. ... danced the salsa with tears streaming down your face trying to make the depression and the terror just go away?
2. ... hated yourself for no apparent reason, even though the rational part of your brain screams that there is nothing wrong with you really?
3. ... felt alone and isolated and bitter even though you have never looked better and your clothes have started fitting better despite the pmsy bloating?
4. ... felt as if you have no one, even though your loved ones are just a phonecall and an hour away?
5. ... had no one understand why you were so down and out, even though you have told them many times that your brain is awash with chemicals due to pms?
6. ... missed a hug or just a pat on the arm or even a wag or two because really that's all it takes sometimes to make the tears stop.

Hey - sending virtual hugs. I wish there was something I could say or do to make it feel better but I know from personal experience that there probably isn't. Visit the neph, go somewhere you can get the love hugs and validation for real. It won't stop the chemicals, it won't stop IT, but there'll be a light dancing near the horizon to compete with the awashing chemical darkness.

My sympathies. I shall remember not to crack any jokes that link PMS with "Be afraid. Be very afraid".

I also know another PMS joke that I think is hilarious, but I'm not fool enough to mention it here and now.

Cheer up.

I get depression with CFS now and then too. Totally chemical - totally annoying.
