Anything and everything about PMS. How much it hurts, who you talk to about it, what you do when it hurts like he.ll, anything and everything about PMS.
I don't mind the cramps much. They can get really, really bad, but I'm used to pain and not afraid of it, and don't mind it.
Once I suddenly got extremely depressed (Which is reallreallyreallyreally weird, because I'm usually an extremely happy person) because my plate was too big for the amount of food on it. That sandwich looked so lonely...I kind of felt like giving it a hug and hurling myself down the stairs. But it only lasted for a fraction of a second. But it was so strong I stopped walking suddenly. That was really weird.
I have Type One Diabetes, so my blood sugars can be weird. I've found that a lot of the time, for a few days before my period starts I get 1-5 lows a day (which, btw, is bad). Then when it starts the lows suddenly stop and are replaced with highs (which are also bad, but there's less danger of passing out and dying from it). *sigh*
I eat eggs. Lots and lots of eggs. Scrambled, poached (not a favorite), or hard boiled (definately a favorite). I can go through a whole case in a week. And with scrambled, I always put strange things in it. Cinnamon, coffee, cloves, tons of paprika BURNED (MUST BE BURNED) onto the outside, etc. Sometimes I don't even know what I'm putting in it. And ketchup. :D
Once I had two slices of cold ham, pickles, ketchup, and corn tortillia chips for dinner.
Is the stuff you put on it like a craving thing? Or do you do that anyway? I get serious cravings for bread, which I'm trying to lay off of for a while. I get the worst cramps ever, but they only last about 5 minutes, and I am so glad I've been luck enough to avoid them at school, I swear, I would freak out!
Lately, I've been having lots of cramps during my period. I used to have NO cramps, and I just hated the, um, 'wet' feeling of it all, and I thought THAT was bad. Then, in the last few months, the cramps have been awful. I'll almost literally be bending over, sucking air in through my teeth, with my teeth clamped shut. Of course I have to go do it in the bathroom, so I don't freak my younger siblings out.
My mom understands, but my two sisters totally don't. My older sister is one of those athletic people who push themselves at everything, and are used to pain. She just tells me to suck it up, and rolls her eyes when I'm feeling so bad that I have to just sit on the couch for several hours.
My younger sister is just... I don't like talking about it to a siblings that's younger then me.
Rasberry-leaf tea helps a TON, as does Chamomeile. (sp?)
I normally don't drink tea, but I will try that, cuz' my cramps have gotten a lot worse lately too, and they aren't five minutes anymore, they are waaaay longer, grr. I just lie in my loft bed, and whine (quietly though, our house is small). I don't really have anyone though, cuz' I live with my grandma, and that's just awkward!
And, hey, maybe your older sister feels the same way you do about talking to your younger sisters, maybe that's why she is so inconsiderate about it sometimes.
p.s. I'm Confuzzled5, my username is different.
I normally eat weird things, but the eggs are a craving. :) Once (this one isn't a craving) I ate a pickle with lemon flavoured whipped cream. It was delightful.
I've talked about it with two out of three of my sisters, the third meing the oldest who lives in New Mexico...And my mom. But I don't like talking about it to my mom much, because she then talks about it around my BROTHERS and that's awkward...but a bit funny. :p And my dad, that's alspo awkward. The first time I had my period I told her quietly, and she thought it was her job to tell my sister in New Mexico about it over the phone, which I wouldn't have minded, but she did it LOUDLY when there were two brothers in the room. -_- And recently, she asked me something about whether I really wanted to go see a movie in the middle of it, and one of my brothers walked into the room....Answering that question was awkward. The look on his face was hilarious though. :p Then he turned around and walked out of the room. XD
I rarely complain about much of anything, and especially not cramps. I'm just not a very complainy person. And I don't like talking about it all that much with my younger sister, because she wasn't very nice when I had my first...-_- But I can talk to her about other stuff, like bras (she's just starting to wear them).
WOAH, WAIT A SECOND!!! Lemon flavored whipped cream?!?!?! Where did you get that, I want some! And why would your mom talk to your brothers about it?!?! What would she even say? Why was it awkward when she asked if you wanted to see a movie? Well, I don't complain about much, except for on here...
My brother made it. You just add lemon juice to the cream and beat it up. :p
I dunno...She just talks a lot. :p
She wasn't sure if I'd want to sit in a theater while having my period for some reason...The awkward bit was that my brother walked in in the middle of the conversation. >.<
It's more fun complaining on the internet. >8D
I know, it's fun cuz' ppl don't judge you (as much). I will totally try the whipped cream (nummy!!!). And now I get what you were talkin' about, that would be weird...
