I cry about random things, I’m extra self conscious, I have stomachaches, I get angry at random things, and I experience fatigue. Does anyone know what I can do to help these symptoms? How do you cope with your PMS? Anyone have any natural cures? Does exercise work for you guys? Thanks!
I got a desktop speed/punching bag off of Amazon, and I beat the ever living snot out of it. A baseball bat to a pillow can work as well for getting the aggression out. However if you BF walks in one of those sessions, they tend to freak out a bit. Whoopsie! Oh well, he got over it eventually. 😉
It helps me to know its PMS, and to realize I’m acting out of character. I usually tend to withdraw a bit, and catch up on books or movies I’m interested and haven’t gotten around to reading/watching. There is always the time tested bubble bath as well. I usually feel better just getting the aggression out, and taking some “me time”.
