A Southern Fried Mess

Insanity is a southern necessity…

What’s wrong with this picture…

I have PMDD which is short for psychotic PMS.

I’ve had this condition  ever since I hit my teen years. I hate it. And It has been the cause of many  a hurt feeling,  can goods beamed from across the room at a loved one’s head, mistaken drug usage, loss of dear friendships, the untimely death of a fully decorated Christmas Tree, the unexpected growling like a dog at the bag boy just for saying hello, and a host of other terrible things.

Over the years, I’ve gotten better at dealing with this ‘ISSUE’ and have learned how to ‘stay in the box’, so to speak, and not cut loose on the nearest person. My family has also learned how to cope with mom’s  crazy mood swings. Usually, they stay far away from me as possible.

Today is different…

I’m  so far out of the box that it isn’t funny……and I can’t seem to get things back under control.

I feel helpless…and angry, and more than a bit out there

I have this uncontrollable urge coming on to haul the laundry out onto the front lawn and set fire to it….

You laugh now, but wait until the fire department shows up…..

  1. Let’s see…. I’m just going to remain silent on this one.

    smart move considering I just chewed out half of the pre-school moms for not being able to form an ‘s’ in the pick up line with their cars. HOW HARD CAN THAT BE PEOPLE??!!!
