Some days are great, others are not...but no matter what twists and turns I encounter, you can be sure I'm going to write about it!

I'm losing my mind once a month.

I have a problem. I swear on my life that I experience out of body experiences/blackouts when I PMS. Seriously.

Take Tuesday...
On Tuesday, I thought I was on top of my game. I was productive at work...felt there was nothing to fret about...honestly, life was good. Tuesday night hit, little man started getting sick, and I had to take him to the doctor for an ear infection on Wednesday...which meant I missed work.
Unlike most people, I love going to work. I don't mean to sound like a snob, but I've worked in horrible work environments in the past. My current office rocks. Period.

Which leads me to my next point...

On Wednesday, I started my period*.

When I returned to work today, I was almost immediately invited to discuss something in my bosses office. When she closed the door, my inner voice literally said "shit..what did I do wrong!" Apparently, on Tuesday, I forgot to put out our overnight package. Lame, I know... Lame because it's SUCH AN EASY THING TO DO! (I mean, really! Who can't put a stinking package outside of their office at the end of the day? This chick!) Really horrible of me because we were overnighting time sensitive legal documents. Yeah, I royally effed up. It didn't help that my boss had to deal with my mess by herself since I had to stay home with little man.
Either I'm just really dumb, and shouldn't be allowed to leave my home...or I'm convinced I'm suffering from pms-blackouts.

So I ask...Has anyone every experienced this for themselves? If you're a guy...have you ever heard of a girl say something as crazy as this?! Maybe I'm going nuts. Just maybe!!

*Is it also just me, or do people have an issue calling a period a period? Meh, I'm over it. It is what it is, right? Right. :)


  1. Ugh! Bad week, I was wondering where you were. Sorry to hear that its been rough. Tomorrow is Friday though, give me a "Hell Yeah!" for that. :-) Hope Little Man is better. Enjoy your weekend.

  2. Well, women get pregnancy brain right? And new Moms get Mommy brain. Sure it's partly due to lack of sleep but I think it has more to do with surging hormones. So when you PMS, your surging hormones may affect you in the memory kind of way?

    Just a thought.

  3. Mandy - Yes, little man is forging on, as usual :)

    sky girl - I'm pretty sure that's exactly what my problem is. I wonder if the pill would help me prevent it!! Just another thing that makes me go "hmmm" :)

  4. I'm thinking that if you only lose your mind once a month, you're doing better than me!
