I am going to need to do some major research on estrogen. Since I got off Lupron and started having regular cycles this year I am experiencing something completely new and unexpected....severe PMS. I have never had pms in the 26 years that I have been menstruating! It has taken me four months to realize that my new cycle rhythm does the following: puts me in a severe mental funk, am super emotional (and unfortunately that doesn't mean super happy, more like super sad and mad), drop off all plans (including working out, eating right, painting nails, etc) and go up by four lbs for the whole week right before I get it.
On Saturday I got it and wallah! poof! all symptoms start to diminish and I feel normal again. Have I told you that I.Don't.Like.This.
I am completely on plan today. Had a good breakfast, have a good lunch just waiting for me patiently on my desk :), and even got a snack. Who is this new girl and how can I keep her the whole month?
