A condition where women, before their period, experience these symptoms:
A- Anxiety: irritable, crying
without reason, verbally and sometimes physically abuse, feeling "out of control", or Dr. Jekyl-Mr. Hyde behavior changes.
D- Depression: confused, clumsy, forgetful, withdrawn, fearful, paranoid, suicidal thoughts
C- Cravings: food cravings, usually
or chocolate; dairy products including cheese, and on occasion, alcohol or food in general.
H- Heaviness or Headache: Fluid retention leading to headache, breast tenderness, abdominal bloating
and weight gain.
But not as many women as people believe
have PMS. Sometimes people are just bitchy because things are happening in their lives. But with all those symptoms, it's hard not to feel crappy
and mean, no?
