Dear premenstrual Marci

**This picture is me being premenstrual, and therefore, psycho.
Check out my crazy eyes.

I am going to write a letter to myself to read when I am pms-ing and all kooked in the head.

It happens every month or so that I'll be chugging along (what, am I a train?) just fine and then BAM! I'm premenstrual and all of a sudden I blow everything out of proportion.

But the really crazy thing is that I'm so hormonal that I can't see that I'm blowing things out of proportion just because I'm hormonal. You know what I mean?

So, here goes. I will insist that hormonal Me read this when I am feeling crazy--full of insane amounts of hormones pumping through my bloodstream.

Dear premenstrual Marci,
Everything is okay.
Jeff is still the great husband that you love dearly. I beg you, please don't abuse the poor guy.

People are generally good. They are not, I repeat, not all idiots, even though it may appear that way now.
Your children are delightful. They are not making you crazy, your hormones are making you crazy.
It would be best if you kept your pie hole shut for the next several days, that way you can avoid saying anything you will later regret.
This too shall pass, in 3-7 days, until next month.
It's all good.
Hang in there, Marci. You can get through this without anyone getting hurt.

Your non-hormonal counterpart

I sure hope this helps.


  1. Oh my God, I need to tattoo that on my face. Except, maybe I only have 3-7 good days and 21 crazy ones.

  2. Also try repeating the mantra-"I'm not crazy, I'm not, I'm totally normal going thru something hormonal". Of course, say this to yourself, otherwise OTHER people may think you're crazy. :)

  3. Yikes!! Who was brave enough to take that picture??

  4. Hi! Thanks :) and stop by my blog any time (because I will likely start stopping by yours).

  5. Thanks Marci for your nice comment on my blog!!

  6. So glad it's not just me! Very Funny...and scary!

  7. LOVE IT!!! I think I will send the same letter to myself!! :o)
