PMS/PMDD

My pms has been mentioned a few times on this blog.  I just found this post about PMDD (the official acronym for PMS), which shows someone else’s personal  struggle with PMS.  And it provides some feminist perspective too.

I am not officially diagnosed by the way, but I can clearly relate to the author of the blog. And it is not only unhandy at work/uni, but also with other people in my environment. My aunt still doesn’t take PMS seriously, thinks that you just have to control yourself better when you have PMS, and that often it is just whining and exaggeration. The asshole ex did not believe in PMS, and thought similar things. Extra awareness is quite necessary, or so it seems…

But some chocolate usually helps, of course...

But sometimes chocolate helps 😉
