    :eek: Back in the old days, before we were married, 'That Time' of the month was a little more bearable. For the most part she was still worried about keeping me, so she did her best to remain civilized to me, but mostly kept away. Of course, I was willing to withstand a certain amount of insanity because, after all, fair is fair and I'm sure there are times when I'm hard to live with.

    :eek: Once we were married, she was a lot less afraid of losing me, so she let her wrath out on me more often than not. But if things got bad, I could always just leave and go to a movie or go out with the guys and let her club baby seals or bury puppies alive or whatever women do when they're alone during 'That Time' of the month.

    :eek: But now that we have kids, I can't abandon them and leave them with her, as she is just as irrational with them as she is with me, only they can't stand up for themselves because, of course, psychomom is NEVER wrong! So now the children and I are doomed to live out this week every month with little hope of sanity breaking into our lives. And of course we're not allowed to go out without her because 'We're being ridiculous and there's no reason she can't come along'... And I can't talk her into going shopping or to a movie by herself to give us a little breather either, because of course, there's nothing wrong with HER, it's just 'us' that are being unreasonable.

    Oh Dear God Help Me! :doah:

    Oh Dear.... I can totally understand. I can't offer much advice, but perhaps a little insight. "That time of the month" is like another person living inside you. It seems reasonable to anyone not experiencing it that it should be something a person can control, but it's like this evil being that creeps out and the person who is 'possessed' by it doesn't know it and can't control it!

    I know I've yelled at my kids and realized it was totally not anything they did, and of course I feel bad. It's hell and most times I wish I could just take something for it to go away.
    It's too bad she doesn't want to go out on her own, because I know that really helps me - even if it's to Safeway alone. Try not to accuse her of being bitchy (It doesn't sound like you have). Sorry I couldn't be more helpful!

    Nah, I use vodka for that.:rotfl:


    To be honest, Kim isn't that bad when she's O.T.R. Most times I can just say "Hey, Kim, cheer up" and she'll realize that she's a bit grumpy and it's affecting those around her........

    Ever seen the bumper sticker that says "I have PMS and a gun, any questions?" Maybe you could hide a tape recorder somewhere when she is being unreasonable, and only when she is back to normal, play it for her. Maybe then she will understand, but DO NOT CRITICIZE!!!

    My wife gets pretty loopy sometimes, it usually starts with her yelling and screaming at me and the kids, then a reality check, and finally she breaks down cries, then apologizes. It's a vicous cycle, sometimes I get really scared......:grin:

    Heck, I've got 14 different personalities and none of them are as bad as a woman during "that time of the month."

    Wel, I guess I've got it good. My women only gets 'that time of the month' 4 times a year.

    Now I know you're asking "What? How can I get this great deal, Nick the Great and Almighty?!" ..Okay, maybe not those exact words, but I'm sure you're asking.

    She's on the Birth Control Patch, Ortho-Evra I think it's called. So, there's no need to worry about having kids until I'm ready and she only goes nuts about once every 3 months.

    I just know that I thank the person who invented this B.C. Patch everday of my life!

    Guess I'm lucky in a way, mine's not too bad actually, a little cranky and sensitive, but OK overall.


    But again (and cheers to KimCan) she is totally delusional during the "episode", no clue that it's her crankiness, just that I'm being an insensitive prick, or the dogs are extra stupid. But after a few days it's "wow, I was kinda being a bitch, huh?" (the proper response by the way is "no, no, honey not at all, I was being hard headed")

    On a more serious note, many women are peri-menapausal and don't know it. Solves pretty well with correct dosage of progesterone cream (not estrogen). MAybe you can get one of her girlfriends to broach the subject - she'll just kill you if you bring it up. Just make sure the friend isn't having her time of the month when you mention it...:haha: Failing that, spending most of your waking hours saying, "Yes Dear. I'm sorry. You're right" may be of some help.:D
