I am wondering... as we get older (we women) ...do we feel emotions stronger?
When I was in my teen years I was like what the ef is all this hype about PMS? Who gets that? Women are just using it as a front to just be down right mean!
But now... now I know PMS is not a myth. It is real. As real as the sun that shines on our faces.
I get all kinds of moody when I know Mother Flow is coming to visit soon. And then my coworker told me something very interesting that one day when I decide to actually use my spare time wisely I might actually look into.
She said that after our periods we get depressed because our egg wasn't fertilized. Even though we may not even be trying to get pregnant therefore aren't consciously thinking about it, but that physiologically our bodies go through a brief depression mode. Hmmm...it made sense to me because I was noticing a mysterious blanket of sadness that would come over me very strongly. Maybe thats the explanation?
I am perplexed but I just know I am more in touch with my womanly feelings than I've ever felt I have been in my life.
A few months ago I was at Target with my friend and we were crusing through the store when I saw a plaque with some cheesy inspirational message and there in Target I really felt I could just bawl my eyes out. Just cry like a crazy person. Over a plaque? Yes, really.
Is this what pregnant women feel like?
