Do you experience some crazy PMS mood swings? Here is what you can do to make your life better on ‘those’ days of the month!
Have you felt miserable time and again when you picked up a fight at home or with a total stranger for a reason you had no control or authority over? You felt overly edgy and ‘naggy’ and unable to comprehend or justify your actions. At times cried without provocation and felt that the whole world is against you. A feeling of misery and blandness creeping inside every vein of yours and poking fun at you?
Well, you are just as normal as any other woman going through what is fancily termed as PMS (premenstrual syndrome).
It took me many years to come to terms with the very existence of this vamp that came tiptoeing every other month and left me devastated. Could be my ignorance or lack of reading up on a woman’s physiological state during her menstruation. But now, when life seems less intimidating, I did get an opportunity to take a peek into and introspect on this natural phenomenon.
As I grew wiser understanding the woman that I am and that I do not wish to be during those times, I adopted a few techniques that helped me overpower her and be at peace with myself and offer peace to the people around me.
The most important aspect of PMS is to identify the very nature of your genre of PMS. For instance, you get irritated for reasons as silly as the garbage collector leaving behind a plastic packet in the dust bin. Things that you otherwise ignore conveniently become of utmost importance and affect you hugely.
You should know when you are genuinely annoyed at someone or a situation and when you are trivially annoyed at the same person or a similar situation. You should be able to differentiate between your normal level of tolerance and the abnormal level of intolerance during those times.
PMS usually comes before your menstruation and duh! that is why its been named that way. But mood swings can occur at other times also, and this could also be attributed to other hormonal activities in your body. So it’s not your normal self that drives you to that state, but a concoction of emotions, chemicals, situations that work up in the mind that makes you the undesirable person.
Now that you have tamed the three cardinal symptoms, comes the most important factor, ‘Taming the PMS’.
You know what makes you happy or what peps up your mood. When you know that you have been struck, explore those few or many things that make you happy. It could be anything from reading your favourite author, listening to a certain kind of music, watching a movie or going out with friends.
Try to walk away from an argument or a situation that will stir up the restless hormones and in turn stir up a hornet’s nest.
Divert your energy into something productive. The feeling of having achieved something will mollify the feeling of worthlessness that generally arise during PMS.
Last but not the least, do not treat yourself repugnantly. No one can love you the way you want to be loved and the way you can love your own self.

Mostly Normal is a book of innocence, longing, filial love, angst and acceptance, encapsulating a gamut of human emotions within its lightweight edifice. The book touches the human heart and will stay with you.
Some books enthral you till the last page, and then there are those that you stop reading after turning a few pages. Some books are a one-time read, while you carry some books with you long after you have read them. Then, once in a while, a book hits you so close to home that you find it difficult to slot into any category.
I will put Priyadeep Kaur’s Mostly Normal (BookSoul Reads, 2022) in this last bracket.
At a little less than hundred pages, Mostly Normal is a testimony of the power of words to inspire, irrespective of their length.
Most women do not get to live their lives the way they want, on their own terms. So why should they be tied down in their old age?
Every morning, while dropping the kids at the bus stop, I find a grandfather waiting with his granddaughter. I see him again when I fetch the kids. This has been the pattern for the last few years.
He is seen actively participating in his granddaughter’s activities, from morning and evening walks to attending her parent-teachers meeting, sending her for extracurricular activities to even planning her birthday party. He is admired by all. He is appreciated for making himself useful in his old age. People rave that the doting grandfather is doing his duty towards his children and grandchildren. The much-admired grandfather is also a widower, having lost his wife years ago to chronic disease. It’s also to be noted that both his son and daughter-in-law are working parents.
Every day, the onlookers appreciate his sense of duty and dedication. They say that this is how the elderly should keep themselves occupied. They should bring up their grandchildren while their children go off to work.
