Grrrr -- I'm in a terrible mood and headachy. The kids have a snow day here and 2 friends are over. They are all driving me nuts.

Trust me, I love snow days and always have several boys hanging out at my place but today I'm on my last nerve....

Any suggestions for a way to suffer less PMS?? It may be too late this time, but I am fed up of having a week out of my month being all pissy and unhappy (and I am generally not like that at all).

For me it's helpful if I am getting enough rest, getting enough water (usually about 100 ounces a day), getting some good sweat inducing exercise and recognizing that I have PMS. The recognition is key for me. When I react to something I have to take a step back and ask myself if it's my normal reaciton or blown out of proportion because of PMS.

I went on birth control because it was so bad. I stay on my hormones, get enough exercise, drink water, and try to be aware of the mood swings which makes it much easier to check myself. And wine helps.

I was going to say rest too. When I don't get enough sleep, PMS is amplified by about ten thousand!

If it's bad, I just try to take some time for myself. I know, easier said than done but it's amazing how I don't feel so grumpy anymore when I'm not interacting with other people.

on a rich day: babysitter, hotel room with a whirlpool, wine, crying

on a normal day: just basically overeat all day, lay in bed, ignore the children

No Peas for you ! Come back one year!
