For the past three days I've felt negative, insecure, inadequate, grumpy, put-upon, rage-filled, fed-up, incapable, frustrated, lost bordering on hopeless. At breakfast this morning I told a friend I'd forgotten what it was like to be cheerful, wondering if I'd be trapped in that greyness forever. And now I'm fine. Could be the bursts of sunshine beaming through the clouds after what seems like endless days of dreary rain. Far more likely is that I got my period. After whining for hours, suddenly the need to disappeared. It was instantaneous. My energy came rushing back. I feel powerful, enthusiastic, motivated. I feel good.
Amazing what a little hormone shift can do.
