Educate yourself on it.
Do not belittle it.
Do not mock it. Do not take it lightly.
Do NOT ever say “oh, it must be that time of that month.” That’s just ignorant.
Take a look…
The most common physical and emotional symptoms associated with PMS include:
Weight gain from fluid retention
Tension or anxiety
Mood swings and irritability or anger
Appetite changes and food cravings
Joint or muscle pain
It is not fun. It is not an excuse to be a bitch.
It’s a real medical condition, God damn it.
When the fuck are men going to stop being pricks about it and understand it?
I’m thinking of asking all women who suffer from PMS to take a picture of your bloated belly, send it to me and we’ll have a PMS-a-thon and raise money for awareness of the condition. Who’s in?
(and I know that not ALL men are insensitive to it, so don’t bother scolding me about that… there are far more who think it’s a big joke then there are those who really understand it)
