Next time just buy it and don't show it to her. Then, when she asks for it, just give it to her.
Well I get a bit cranky around my period sometimes, it's different sometimes I'm emotional, other times I'm depressed, and few times I'm just a bitch! But usually it has to do with certain triggers around me, like if someone says /does anything that doesn't sound right I snap! And I hate myself for that but it just happens.
Oh gosh this old argument again. "I have somewhat mild periods, so I don't understand how other women can be so affected by them" substantiated by that bs study a few years ago which claimed pms is a myth. Bitches please. Try ovarian cysts. Or waking up in the middle of the night to vomit. From pain. At age 9. Or having an irony defiance.. From heavy bleeding. Passing out during classes. While you experience that on a monthly basis, I invite you to maintain a happy go-lucky attitude.
Like #60 said, try having PCOS. As much as I try, my period will inevitably turn me into a fucking monster (I try avoiding people when that happens, but I can't help myself sometimes) because I feel like someone smuggled a knife inside my uterus and is cutting my insides slowly. And this is still much better than how I felt before I started taking birth control pills! When you're in pain, tired, nauseated, with your emotions going crazy and people telling you that your period is no big deal, it's obvious you'll be an asshole.
I said some girls, okay? Which I fully believe some girls do. I am not talking about those females with health problems pertaining to their periods. Sometimes I'm in pain during mine but I don't validate treating others badly because of it. Which, as I said before and I'll say again, I believe some girls do. So, you have your opinions and I'll have mine.
Just because you're pretty much fine and dandy during your period doesn't mean other girls don't struggle. I have a very slow temper normally and am never moody but during my 12 day heavy painful periods I get a little irritable. but it isn't because they're long or painful. I just find myself thinking very irrational things. I get very frustrated very easily. I constantly find myself getting very angry at my boyfriend for no reason and while I almost always tell him I'm struggling (and that it isnt his fault) before saying something id regret rather than take it out on him, I understand if some woman can't help but have a bitch moment. hell, I broke down crying and threw a bar of soap through a window one time after it gave me a small rash.
I suffer with mental health issues and PCOS as well as other pain issues. I still try to not be a bitch regardless of which time of the month it is. Not always easy, but you have to try! Your wife either sounds like she's a bitch anyway, or she needs her symptoms checking out. If it's really uncontrollable there's things they can give to help.
I've read about how some studies suggest that PMS (mood swings, not physical things like cramps) is not nearly as common as everyone makes it out to be. I believe it was something like only 5% of women actually have such symptoms. Women often use it as an excuse or think they have it, but when they actually keep journals for studies, they don't have any mood swings (though they will clearly recall having them... In their minds at least.) Plus, like no one had "PMS" something like 60 years ago until it suddenly became a "real" medical condition and it was marketed and all that. In other countries, there is no such thing as PMS! I'm not saying no woman has it, because clearly some do. Supposedly I have PMDD, though I don't know about that because I have other mental/physical things going on that coincide with it. Who knows? I just try not to be irrational and ALWAYS apologize if I act unacceptably for some reason.
I am interested in that side of it. A lot of woman use the term but get those symptoms during menstruation, not before. And for me at least I know that's the pain as much as anything. I do sometimes get symptoms, but it's more common in people with other conditions. 10-15% or more of women probably have PCOS for instance, it's simply that it's a large scale from no symptoms to very severe, even daily disablement at the extreme end, so a lot are never diagnosed or only by chance. But, women are pretty much told they'll probably get PMS, it's everywhere in popular culture and daily life, so I think people expect it and blame any moods at that time on period timing, when a angry or weepy day a week earlier wouldn't be given the association. Or, be allowed to be a bitch and blame it on something and it get automatic forgiveness. I also saw a study a while ago that showed men's hormones change over a month or so too, so it's possible that hormonal fluctuations are a human phenomenon, not a female one.
sounds to me like a lot of girls become hypochondriacs when they know their period is coming. But, I go to school from 7:30 to 2:20 and then go to work from 3 to 8 and when I get home I'm tired, angry, and hungry plus I don't always sleep very well but does that mean I can just be a dick to everyone? no. same with when I'm sick or anything else. some people just have to learn how to be respectful in frustrating situations. If my future wife does this to me she can bet her sweet tits that Imma go off on her and make sure she knows that she's being disrespectful and will end the argument there.
There was a girl at my old school who would literally smack the shit out of other girls for "looking at her funny" then blame it on her period. This was a weekly occurrence.. So moral of the story is at least your wife isn't as crazy.
"let's see... you were on your period this week... and the week before.... and the week before.... and the week before THAT... oh yes. I see. It seems to me that you do not suffer from PMS but rather PBS... permanent bitch syndrome. There is no cure. I'm sorry."
