yeah, right.

Women can experience a variety of sensations before, during or after their menses. Common complaints include backache, pain in the inner thighs, bloating, nausea, diarrhea, constipation, headaches, breast tenderness, irritability, and other mood changes. Women also experience positive sensations such as relief, release, euphoria, new beginning, invigoration, connection with nature, creative energy, exhilaration, increased sex drive and more intense orgasms.

day 4 of progesterone and i feel like ripping somebody's head off. does that constitute "connection with nature"? i'm insanely irritable, i can't concentrate, i'm jumping out of my skin. i feel like flinging myself to the ground and having a full-on tantrum. maybe that's the "creative energy" part. yeah, right.

i thought of perhaps starting a bar brawl, but jean would never forgive me if i stole her death ;-)

jean did encourage me to indulge in some... vivid... fantasies. i always get caught up, though, in the who's-going-to-clean-up-this-mess question.
