PMS: The Struggle is Real!

I was reminded this weekend how it is impossible to be positive all of the time…how there are days that hormones just take over and cause total destruction.  I tried, tried pretty darn hard I’d say to keep positive, but I finally surrendered when I just couldn’t take it anymore.

Friday night wasn’t so bad…I watched some football movie on Netflix…Mark Wahlburg was in it and played some Eagles player…Invincible was the name of it.  I was balling my eyes out…I immediately knew hormones were playing a factor because I don’t cry easily…well, except when you catch me this time of the month!  I told myself ok, now the next couple of days are going to be great!  This will be the month the moodiness will not visit!  I feel fabulous, eating healthy, gym action going on…all will be good!

Then Bam…the switch was flipped!  Dear boyfriend just doesn’t understand.  My due date is even programed in his phone to make him aware of the days to leave me be, but for some strange reason he just doesn’t believe that it’s a real thing…the struggle is real!

What escalated the situation is my trip to McDonalds.  I very rarely eat fast food, but I was feeling disgusting, skipped the gym, and decided I wanted hotcakes!  Why do they call them that—they are pancakes!  I can’t even tell you the last time I ate McDonalds, but all I know is I wanted pancakes with hash browns….ohhh and I tossed on an order of nuggets too to add to the misery!  I asked for syrup to dip the nuggets in, but she told me I couldn’t substitute that, so I ordered an extra–no big deal–I wanted an extra syrup…period!  haha..pun not intended!  Well, of course I get home, set everything up to chow down and find out there is no extra syrup!  Holy flames and f-bombs Batman!  Out of all the days to screw up my order this was the worst!

The remainder of my night was spent doing my laundry (folding laundry is quite calming), watching Netflix, eating a Skor candy bar, uploading pictures to Facebook, and slowly coming down off that evil estrogen spike as I write this blog post…see, writing can be therapeutic!

Pray for my students tomorrow…better yet, pray for a snow day!

I’m a mother of three beautiful children who have given me the strength in life to be determined in reaching my goals. I am a teacher certified in English and Special Education and truly enjoy going to work every day. I recently completed my requirements to become certified in school district leadership to make an impact on a much larger scale. I have had my fair share of blood, sweat, and tears, but the entire journey has made me grateful and appreciative of all that I have. One strategy I found helpful was to find something every day to be thankful for---focus on the positives in life! My goal with this blog is to do just that---focus on those “little” moments with the hope to inspire others.

  2. Hello Crystal, hope you’re feeling a little better. It is so weird that you’ve written this and I am currently battling with my stomach cramps. It is tough for most women during this time of the month. Some of us suffer from mood swings, increased appetite and severe stomach cramps and yet like the troopers we are we still get our jobs done with few causalities along the way. 🙂
