Does it count?

Does it count as an anger issue if it only happens for part of the month when your hormones make you crazy?
I am a vicious, mean, hateful, rage-filled angry b*tch for like 10-14 days 2 out of every 3 months. (I get one month of semi normal).
I feel like I might punch someone when I am hormone-challenged. I am screaming at the top of my lungs in the car, nasty with my kid, (I have had to explain to him it isn't him, it is me) etc.
When I am not PMSing, I am nice and normal. (About to go on hormones to try to resolve this.) But, is it truly an anger issue or is it short tempered due to hormones? I guess what I am saying is, my resentments become issues only when this happens.

Re: Does it count?

It is an anger management problem and you chose at some point in your life to allow yourself to be out of control. I would be very surprised if you acted like that at work/school or out in public because someone would surely put you in your place. It is never ok to act like that and it is something that you can learn to control. Your children deserve better so why haven't you done something about this and are now just 'thinking' about it. Do whatever it takes and an anger management class is also a good start.

Re: Does it count?

sounds like you're using PMS as an excuse for bad behavior......
raging hormones don't give you license to be a lunatic
try counting to 10 before you explode next time

Re: Does it count?

I would counter with you obviously then do not have PMDD. I cannot believe the tone of judgement on here! I am on medication for this and am working with my drs. already. I have realized by the responses that this is actually not an anger issue but a hormone one, as you all sound like you are coming from a different place than me.

I actually do behave like this in public, at work and everywhere. It doesn't stop, I am not in control. It is not a choice. It is like I am possessed. I swear to you, I HATE behaving like this. I have hormones that are all over the map according to my dr. and we are working on fixing them. I do not need to go to a class to tell me to count to ten. Normally, when not dealing with PMDD, I am nice to everyone. I am patient. I am kind. When my hormones go crazy-so do I.
