Can you believe they say it is not real? :rofl:Man, anyone who has lived with a woman knows the truth...it exists. In animals it is called, "Hormonal rage syndrome" and it can cause violent outbursts".

Sorry if someone already posted it.

Not a thing. :faint:You just hear so many conflicting items each day it becomes an "oxymoron". :whistling:

Oxymoron is the name of a drug I invented. It is 100mg of hydrochloric acid surrounding whatever dose of narcotics. If you grind it up to snort, you'll not like life. If you grind it up to shoot into a vein, you'll not likely have life. If you take it orally, no problems.

As for PMS, I didn't believe in it either, until paramedic school. Our instructor was sweet kind and understanding. UNTIL just before her cycle. Holy crap she was evil incarnate! Then a week later she would be back to her sweet self. The study is flawed. Plain and simple.

Let me tell you guys..my gf has two good weeks and then the third week she is like that crazy woman trying to kill Belushi with the Ar..:whistling: So I know what it is.

I told my wife when we first met I don't play the PMS game. There's life and then there's excuses. It happens every few weeks, you're used to it. I will NOT except head games during that time or any others.
I understand it's real, but I think it can be used as an excuse or highly exaggerated for someone's benefit. Flame suit on!

No one wants to feel that way, to lose control of their "disposition". I'll be glad when "she's" gone!

First week, he didn't see her.

Second week, he didn't see her.

By the third week, the swelling had gone down enough that he could sorta make out her shape if she was silhouetted. :rofl:



I've got a wife and 2 teenage daughters. 2-3 days a month, it's pure hell. Then it's gone and they are very apologetic. Strangely, they aren't "sync'd" as much as in serial. One, then the next, then the next. Maybe it's 5 days, but no more than 2 days of crazy per person. LOL

Good explanation!! :cool:

I have a wife, and three daughters...they used to be synced to within a day or two; now it seems someone is on it every week! :wow: The youngest is the most emotional raged female of the group, then the wife, then the other two daughters. :faint:


Life is Good!! :rofl:

or is it simply someone venting because they don't like all the pain/irritation/aggravation they're going through?

And ya know who they bvent against don't ya.......the person closest to them and who they're always around.


Close 'em in a box for about a week, eh?:wavey:

Tests have shown that when women are placed in a living situation together........they tend to all sync together in their cycles. I think NASA did the tests, for space travel. Probably a good thing to know when in space, ya think?


Put 'em all in suits and tie 'em off outside the craft, eh?:wavey:

I believe you're right, it was NASA that may have done it. At one point in my career, there were 7 females in my department I managed.....they were all pretty close on their timing; then one got pregnant and it through it all into chaos...took about 9 months to get it back together.

In bold above, I have made that comment, or one very similar, to those in my household...if they didn't try to be a little bit more courtesy. :rofl:

Mr. C thinks all those cultures that send their women off to live in a hut outside the village each month are WAY more advanced than we are. I told him he's right, but since we don't have a hut, he should just go hunting/camping/fishing himself.

It matters not whether PMS is a physical or an emotional problem.

The fact is that through a myriad of family interpersonal relationships (of which mine is only two samples), it is demonstrated to exist. (I had three sisters (Mother was gone). I had three daughters. My experiences mirror the empirical data voiced by many others in this thread, men and women.

The fact that this emotional/physiological state (PMS) cannot be correlated with other human factors, does not make it less real. Most of the argument against the existence of PMS as a "real" condition, such as in this article, appears to be based on the lack of a direct relationship with specific physiological events that the researchers "believe" to be the basis for the condition.

What this simply means, is that the input variables are to probably numerous, and the interrelationships to tenuous, to be quantified by the referenced study. This is a lack of necessary input criteria for the research study, not a hard result of the study.

My point is: If the condition is verified by significant numbers of observations, performed by significant numbers of persons, over a significant amount of time, it is real, and must be accepted.

You may not like it, but it must be accepted as real.

I have no way to deal with it either, stay out of the way of a PMS sufferer and hope to "go home safe"

Disclaimer:
These thoughts are my own and I have no formal training or privileged understanding of PMS. (just don't let them hurt me)

Oh yes, it's real. This whole family walks very lightly around me for 6-7 days out of the month. :supergrin:

Far worse is the Depo-Provera induced rage. :shocked: That crap is NASTY. Three months of hormone-induced homicidal tendencies. Never again!*

We have three daughters, the oldest is 9. A friend of mine said, "I don't envy you the drama and maxipads you'll go through in the next 15 years." :rofl:

Now I know why Mr. GKL wants to buy a cabin in the woods for him and Numbah One Son... :rofl:



*. And yes, I know some women love it. Me...I was alternately exhausted, raging, bursting into tears, seething, despondent, and sulking. Worst three months of my life, and probably my family's as well. I wasn't this crazy during all four of my pregnancies, and the doc couldn't understand why I was so vehemently opposed to "trying Depo again". He told me it would eventually work itself out, and I told him the GKL family wouldn't likely survive another attempt.

There's not a lot that I respect about hebrew Law from the Old Testament, but I think they hit the nail on the head with the whole "Red Tent" thing and having the women just check into their own tent for a week when 'that time' came around every month.
