Earlier this year I changed my contraception. I’d been using a very convenient option and one of the side effects was zero time-of-the-month. Unfortunately I was 10kg’s heavier and miserable so I decided to switch to something else.
Which has meant mood swings from hell.
Oh the feelings.
I swear I have never gone through so many tissues. I’m used to sitting with a wet face when I’m watching “This is Us” but an advert for a restaurant is another story. Seriously – where did this avalanche of feelings pour out of?
The list of things that have had me bawling recently includes:
- A Whatsapp from my Mom thanking me for something
- A photo of my late Gran I found on my phone
- A random memory of something I could have done differently 20 years ago
- A wildlife documentary
- An advert for insurance
- The way a book ended
It is exhausting but not as draining as the fact that anything can piss me off with no warning.
The other day I was furious for something so silly and insignificant that I’m embarrassed to even mention it. It was a minor inconvenience that took place a decade ago and I was suddenly bat poop furious at it. I demanded an apology.
I am literally the human version of grumpy cat at the moment. I just look a lot crabbier.
Oh gosh the feelings. I’m assuming they will level out. That as my hormones calm down I’ll feel human again!
Hoping it is soon because at the moment I suspect the only people I haven’t pissed off or offended are those I haven’t yet met.
