Every month for a couple of days, all of a sudden I'm just unbelievably sad. I almost called in sick today because I didn't want my coworkers to see I had been crying this morning.
Then I look at the calendar and I'm like "OOOOH, that explains that." At least, I assume that's what it is.
Does that happen to anyone else? Depression during PMS?
(Side note - I have five brothers, and pretty much all my friends my whole life have been guys, so there's some chick stuff that I just don't know, like normal PMS symptoms for instance)
The thing about "normal PMS symptoms," from what I understand, is that it's fairly variable between individuals. Personally, I don't really get depressed, but I am more prone to bawling my eyes out when I normally wouldn't and everything tends to feel a lot more dramatic/life-or-death than it is. (Although, since I just started taking the pill, all this could go out the window for me. *shrug* We'll see what happens.)
