PMS = Temporary Insanity

PMS can cause wild, uncontrollable mood swings in some women, who may go from crying spells to angry outbursts and anxiety attacks, then back to a stable emotional state — all in one day.  Everyday Health

Is PMS classified under temporary insanity? 

Because it should be. Although I haven't had "wild" mood swings I do feel I've been having "uncontrollable" emotions. There is no other explanation for the way I've been thinking, feeling, acting and saying lately. And the worst part is I don't even know when I'm PMS-ing. I'm either oblivious to my craziness or it feels completely justified until that light bulb moment occurs and I finally snap out of it. This moment can happen anywhere and anytime. When it happened to me today I felt guilty, horrified and embarrassed all at once as I walked down the supermarket aisle with a blank look on my face. What on Earth came over me? I'm a horrible person. Why did I say that? Why did I do that? He must think I'm insane! Everyone must think I'm insane. I think I'm insane. I can't turn back time! Can I disappear under a blanket and not come out of bed for the rest of the week now? These were some of the thoughts that circled my mind after the light bulb moment.

Ladies, lesson of the day: Don't interact with the opposite gender while PMS-ing. In fact, don't interact with anyone at all.

Gents, this video offers you some survival tips. Apart from that, you should pray. Pray hard.
