How true that is! I probably wont admit to having PMS and will just say that a few day before hand I start to get crabby then I know it is almost time........
I am totally in agreement with all of you. Darn that PMS. It messes up a good month. HOWEVER, I don't get depressed, I get invigorated. Seriously! I can't wait until IT hits me. My house is the cleanest. Clothes are all put away. Take me to a club-I'll dance the night away...just kidding on that one. But I do get like a boost of energy right before my period.
The salt craving is equal to the chocolate craving. My favorite is popcorn and M&Ms or at the Mall where I walk is a nut stand that has the sweet and salty mix with nuts and M&Ms. So right now I am enjoying nonPMS by napping and my house is a mess. Just wait afew more days and I'll be up early running the vaccuum.
Talking about the salt cravings,,,,,,Is anyone a Trekkie?!
One TV series had an alien that posed as a woman but would change and become a SALT MONSTER. She would attack her prey and suck the salt out of their bodies. They would be left with suction cup marks all over them..... Saw this episode for about the 10th time when I was in my 30s and finally made the connections. ROFLMAO
Punky, I edited your post and moved it here. I kept my eyes closed while doing this so I didn't infringe on your girl talk.

I am usually int he chronic pain forum, but since I suffer from anxiety and depression, I thought I would check it out. Then I saw your post - it is like that for me with PMS too! I get so sad and anxious - like the world is coming to an end - then PMS is over and everything is right again. I try to remind myself that its just PMS, but that doesn't seem to help much. It was better when I was on the BCP, but I can't take it right now due to other meds I am taking for pain. At least M&Ms - peanut especially - are available 24/7!!
Anyway, hang in there!
oh wow, been there,done that with the drinking and antidepressants......not a good thing to do in public. Have made a fool of myself....I don't want to even go there Now I do it in the privacy of my own basement.
And now I finally am starting the South Beach diet so liquor is out for a long time. Only red wine is on the plan after about 3 weeks of dieting. .
Thats ok about the Star Trek thing. I know there's got to be someone out there that 'gets' me.
