PMS has got to stop being so awful.

Every few months my PMS gets super outrageously bad.  All I want to do is cry or throw something.  Luckily i have total restraint of my emotions when dealing with my little guy.  he may frustrate me, being 2.5 years old, , but i never get angry.  i just get super ragey with adults. which i know isn't a good thing at all.

I can't even tolerate my husband at all.  he does nothing around here, knowing i'm pushed to my limit of doing all the cooking, cleaning, potty time, bill paying, budgeting, errands, driving, carting his ass to and from work. i am so super pissed off at him. at least he's at work for the day. i have therapy later today and i am afraid to even go because i don't want to get irritated with my therapist, just because i am crampy, bloated and feeling like i could snap at any minute.

 I know the feeling right now! PMS was light last month, so it's making up for it this month.

Yah, I understand. Feels like the older I get the worse it seems to get.

Hope your day gets better and maybe warn your therapist ;P

Feel better. Maybe blowing some steam off a little may help some. Use your therapist for that. I have had to do that a few times

Why is it that sometimes PMS is so much worse than others? I get that way too, every few months. Some months I have no signs at all. Makes no sense! Hope you're over it soon.

I totally forgot! I used to use it all the time when I was in college, thanks :)

Is that an herb or as a pill or tea? Where do you get it? If it works, I'd love to try it!

The herb is taken as a tea, you can get it at a whole foods or local natural foods store or an herb store, its quite common.  Brew the tea but, since it is an herbal remedy, when steeping put a cover over it so that the steam (and medicinal properties) don't escape.  It has an okay taste, not bitter or gross or anything.
