Weak From The Fight

PMS is loud with fury and rage and frustration. We suffer, but not in silence. It screams inside our head and pounds its fists on our skull until we let it out. It grabs hold of the reigns and makes us do things and behave in ways that we wish we wouldn’t, and then whispers in our ears, telling us we’re terrible, worthless people. That lump in your throat, the burning behind your eyes, the ache in your head – that’s PMS, taking up space, uninvited, ungrateful. Bastard. Your temper is quick, emotions are sensitive and raw, your patience is run dry. You are anyone but you. And yet you are.
