Welcome to my digital writing journal, or mydigitalclutter. What started as a family blog almost two years ago has morphed into my writing therapy. This is where I do a lot of free writing, mostly about my life with my family and the things that catch my interest. While nowhere even close to perfect, in each post I like to see how my writing is changing with time and practice. Most posts are left unedited for this reason, so if you don't mind, take the journey with me.

Period, Not Just Punctuation


Hormones suck.  There, I've said it.  There are days when being a girl isn't all that it's cracked up to be.  I am sure that there are women out there who have never had a hormone swing, cramps, water weight gain, much less headaches to rival migraines, but I am not one of them.

The past few days have been a mass of mascara running, psychotic yelling, fits of spastic crying, and I'm not even done yet!  My poor family has born the brunt of this hideous time.  Moaning about swollen fingers, pants that are normally loose, fitting tightly, and pretty much not feeling any sort of cuteness.

I've come to the decision that "The Change" aka, menopause could be a welcome relief, but then there are those pesky hot flashes, night sweats, hormonal mood swings...Oh wait, I'm already going through those symptoms.  It wouldn't be too big of a difference as I see it.  Of course, someone more experienced might tell me otherwise.

There is that commercial on television that makes me really want to drop kick the set out the door.  You know the one that tells you to "have a happy period".  GRRR.  Like that is going to happen.  And really, if you are one that does, please, keep your perky comments to yourself.  But, that is the hormones talking, as I really do love comments.  But I digress.  Who has a happy period?  What an oxymoron!

So, my hormonal rant for today is this...I hate hormones in all their sadistic power over me.  Really, I'm a nice person normally, right?

Oh I completely agree with you Teri! Who would ever have a 'happy period'?? No normal woman. Especially not me! I really hate being a girl sometimes. Do you need me to bring you over some chocolate?? Hang in there Teri! I'm here for ya babe! :)

ohmygosh. I was just going to have a post about this very thing. I literally go from happy/perky/lovin life girl to monster. No in between morphing stage. Just one day BAM. And I am a terrible monster. There is this pink song on the radio...perfect for me at this time.

"i can be so mean when I want to be, I am capable of really anything."

I feel your pain. Better yet, I live your pain but with a little extra pinch of fun: endometriosis. NICE! hold in there Teri. The monster will lay down to rest soon enough. But in the mean time...(haha..mean time!) strength in numbers girl!
