WHO WOULD BE A WOMAN?
By Alexandra McGowan for Famous Features
Don’t get me wrong, there are a number of incredibly wonderful things about being a woman. We are able to carry children, multi-task, and spend a month’s salary on shoes without wasting time on silly emotions like guilt.
I think all of the above are pretty special!
However, there are times when being a woman is downright lousy – for a number of reasons.
One of them materialises once a month, every month…for most of our adult lives. The dreaded…PMT (for any males, or women fortunate enough not to know what this is, it’s pre-menstrual tension). It’s caused by an imbalance of hormones at the onset of a period, and usually lasts for a few days.
Most women get a bit down, use it as an excuse to pig out on chocolate, then carry on as normal. But some women have to stay locked away in darkened rooms, such is the madness that comes upon them with the ‘monthly miseries’.
For too long, people have sneered at sufferers of PMT as being over-dramatic, or slightly unstable mentally. But it’s not true. If your body is affected by hormonal changes, there is nothing you can do about it…except sit tight and ride the storm.
We’re interested in real life cases of severe PMT. Did it break up your marriage? Did you find yourself nearly snapping (verbally and perhaps even physically) at your children one day, because you were so irrational and upset?
If anyone understands what you’re going through, it’s other women, which is who we would love you to share your story with in one of the national magazines or newspapers. You will be paid a great fee for sharing your story – and maybe it will reach out to someone else who has been affected in the same way you have.
