What's It Like?

I have this vague sense of doom. I feel worried that something is wrong but I don't know what it is. It scares me. I have felt like this all day. It is quite perplexing.

It was perplexing when it happened last month, and the month before that too. Why does this keep happening to me?


Okay, this has been happening to me most months for about 26 years now and yet every month I still wonder for at least part of the day why I feel so anxious before I realize what is going on. You would think that by now I would realize the moment I notice my symptoms what was happening....but no, I don't. I suppose that is another symptom...lack of basic reasonoing skills.

When I feel like this I often wonder what it must be like for men to not experience the wonders of PMS. Oh, the needless angst that could be avoided! The freedom from the monthly sense of doom! The maintainence of my ability to reason! Not to mention the other things that go with that.....

Aleve helps with the feelings of doom? Hmm....I'll have to try that. Thankfully it only lasts a day or two.
