1.  A constant craving for chocolate could indicate low iron/anemia.  Dark chocolate gives you 5% of your daily iron in 3 bites!

2.  The uterus and the intestines are close together.  As the uterus contracts and gets ready for the process, it can irritate the intestines.  Something good to do would be make sure you are getting plenty of daily fiber and water.  When you first notice symptoms, take an anti-inflammatory, which helps the uterus to not swell and place too much pressure on the surrounding organs.

I get mad diarrhea the day I get my period. And really bad cramps. It's definitely always the worst day of the month.

Lol it's hard to tell with the grumpiness with me. I'm "always" grumpy according to my parents. Lol truth be told, they just get on my effing nerves!

I'm also bipolar ii which even on meds, I am more prone to being in a depressive/angry state. So, who the heck knows!

Ick! I'm sorry about the migraine! Definitely not something I'd be happy out! I'll take my diarrhea! Lol

I've been going potty all morning, like running to the potty. I NEVER have to do that, I've learned how to hold it for so many years but during this time...shit! (No pun intended). I was wondering why my belly was hurting for no reason and I keep going...then I took my meds....tada period starts tomorrow. Yay...not!
