Sorry About That

It must have been at least five or six years ago when I first noticed that for one full day just before I get my period, I'm always incredibly irritable. Minor disagreements, tiny inconveniences, bad smells - all things mildly annoying - make me boil. You might expect that after so many months of this, I would come to expect it and sort of schedule it in: "Okay, I'm going to be crabby that day. Better not leave the house." But in fact, it always takes me at least half a day to recognize the underlying reason for my irritability.

That means, for at least the first half of one day every month, I just think everyone is an asshole.

At least you don't spend a week wondering why you can't stop crying and why life doesn't seem worth getting out of bed for. Every damn time.

Yeesh, Natasha. That sounds like torture. I'd much rather be pissed off at the world.

It happens at other times too, which is probably why I don't realize it's PMS right away. For that one day, it's just more intense, more consistent, and more likely to affect my relationships with my friends and family.

I like your new picture. That's all. We should have a gathering of English nerds sometime soon. Now that's all.

Thanks. And yes, definitely. Maybe at my place next time.
