If you feel unwell, unable to do any job or task because you feel so ill…..
Would you attempt to hide this from everyone around you?
Would you let them know that you are not feeling well?
I’m guessing that you would tell someone, or at least that you would give yourself everything you needed to feel better . . . .
But it’s odd that most women try to do the opposite where PMS is concerned; trying to pretend or persuade everyone that everything is ok, when really it’s not.
This month open up and let people know that you are not feeling well due to PMS, if you manage to catch the feeling early, tell your loved ones straight away, let them know as soon as possible.
A powerful sentence that has dramatically reduced my PMS is simply:
I’m feeling a bit PMS’y
Sounds simple to say? Yes, but in the early days I found it very hard to admit that I had PMS to myself, let alone to the people I lived with.
But saying the above sentence out loud, I actually found to be very healing as I would feel instantly lighter emotionally, my symptoms would reduce dramatically and any atmosphere at home would be prevented or reduced.
One month I was suffering with irritation due to PMS and I decided to do one of the worst possible things when experiencing the symptom, which was to try and find something in a draw that was a complete mess . . . .
I could feel the rage developing….someone offered to help….I wanted to snap, but then I uttered the words:
Do you know what? I’m feeling a bit PMS’y, would you mind doing this for me?
Rather than the normal explosion and argument, I felt instantly calmer, the person who offered to help felt better too, as they now had an understanding of what was wrong and they even told me to have a relax and then made me a cup of tea…..
O how it could have been so different, if I would of not said those words!!
So use this sentence, it really does work, say it whenever you feel it!
