Things That Annoy Me While I'm PMSing

It seems like the week before my period, I’m just over it and I go back and forth between sobbing my eyes out and hating life and all it entails. Ding ding ding, step right up, world! You’re in for the experience of a lifetime when I’m PMSing and ready to punch everything ever. Here’s a short list of things that have annoyed me beyond belief in the past 48 hours:

  • Not being in bed
  • Band names with symbols/weird characters/anything other than letters in the alphabet in them
  • Emails from anyone
  • Twitter/Facebook as a whole
  • Indecisiveness
  • The way my clothes fit (or rather, don’t fit)
  • Someone knocking on the door and waking up my dog when I only just got him to go to sleep
  • The fact that I don’t have pizza
  • Having a stupid headache that won’t go away
  • My mascara smearing the second I put it on, making me feel completely inept
  • Needing to do housework but not wanting to
  • When websites don’t load correctly
  • “News” stories about who Taylor Swift is/isn’t dating
  • Not being rich
  • Thinking about how stupid some of the laws in place in different countries of the world are
  • Getting company newsletters/offers I never signed up for to begin with
  • How Rihanna posts pictures of herself nearly naked on her Instagram, immediately followed by screencaps of Bible scripture
  • People whose heads are too big/small for their bodies
  • Being unable to find a matching pair of socks… like, WHERE ARE THEY?
  • Going upstairs for something and accidentally coming back downstairs without it
  • Overly helpful sales people
  • Stock photography
  • Being asked questions I’ve already answered/can be Googled
  • Constantly feeling on the verge of tears
  • Looking in the mirror
  • Wanting to have sex but being too tired for it
  • Pedestrians who stand in the middle of the sidewalk like I haven’t got places to go
  • There being nothing I want to watch on primetime TV
  • Glee
  • My inability to pick anything up without immediately dropping it on the floor… repeatedly
  • Food being stuck to a dish when I’ve forgotten to soak it right away
  • Having to change the toilet paper roll on the holder when it’s run out
  • Exclamation points
  • The sound a can of Diet Coke makes when you open it
  • Having something I say/do being misunderstood
  • When people with carts full of items don’t let me in front of them at the market when I’ve got ONE thing to pay for
  • Being a stereotype of the moody, PMS-ridden woman
  • Everything

So there you have it. That all being said, I do on occasion catch myself getting in an absolute state over something completely trivial and laugh at how insane I’m being, but it still happens. Bring on the blood so I can return to some semblance of sanity.

Do you experience bad PMS? What annoys you the most before your monthly cycle?
