There are communists in the funhouse!!*

My mood swung violently with each cycle throughout the many years of my fertility. Unfortunately, when you are hormonally out-of-whack, your rage feels legitimate. Now, with all that over, I watch my daughter and cautiously** advise her that this isn’t something she has to just accept. There are things that can be done to minimize PMS.

*my favourite euphemism for "that time of the month" I could find online
**because she can be scary


  1. Better than anarchists, I suppose.

  2. I've never heard that euphemism. I like it.
    I found menopause to be scary, so I'm grateful for HRT.

    1. Perimenopause was a nightmare. Menopause itself isn't so bad, though I wouldn't mind if my metabolism would increase a bit.

  3. That's quite the colourful euphemism.

  4. A *literally* colorful euphemism! And quite funny! I got though menopause with homeopathy, and I remember the moment I realized my moods had evened out and I was no longer at the mercy of my hormones.
