Dealing with PMS
Double kill is when a woman is having a PMS (pre-menstruation syndrome) yet her certain colleague(s) failed to read her gesture and put even more pressure on her. Snap, snap!
Some of my friends in university could tell when if their female colleagues were having PMS, just so they could stay away from trouble. This is a good effort from male species!
Well, to make it balance, then the female species should take precautions to cope with their PMS problem. Here are my advice:
Being solitude for a while is an option, if you could live without crowd. I know, it’s fun with BFFs. But although they’re close, they could get hurt too, you know. Just in case, spare your beloved people hearts.
Hold your fingers off from social media applications. This is a must. Being angry will make you easier to being wounded and getting angrier. You might make annoying status. You might tweet horrendously. If not, you’re likely to be more cynical than any other days. Maybe you didn’t really matter everyone else. At least, it matters to you.
Hold your tongue. Just give 2-3 inhale time before snapping at anyone due to their annoyance. Yes, they’re bitches. But think. Don’t say things you will regret in mere minutes. (we couldn’t possibly know if it’s regrettable in next 10 years, I guess) You’re better than that.
Drink & eat properly. I always get cranky when I’m hungry. And sleepy. This could get worse if you’re having PMS. Some works with chocolate bar(s) or drink. I’m fine with a cup of tea. Of course, extra chocolate treats would be nice 😀 Water always works to cool off. So grab some drink if you feel the pressure builds inside your chest.
Take a rest. Go to bed, if possible. Sleep it off. The hormone rush is already hard to deal with without being tired. We get weaker around this certain time. We will be excused. We should be. Because it will be on someone else’s cost if we’re not.
Pray. Dzikir or whatever your faith tells you. If all else fails, this should not.
It’s just a thought anyway. You can use it if you think it’s useful. If not, leave it at rest. I just need to vent off.
