Evening primrose oil helps me Of course, my husband is well-versed in this area, as he has 4 daughters from his first marriage. He's kind of happy that we now have two boys.

Fish oil works too. But try to get a 12 year old to swallow those pills. :P I've heard they have chocolate with it but fishy tasting chocolate could scar someone emotionally.

lol txmom! I'm sure he's grateful!! From DHs first round he has all boys, so coming in here with the girls has been an interesting experience for him. Poor guy

Gen I owe you rep too! I don't rep nearly enough so it takes forever for me to be able to come back to someone. I've done that whole "you hate me!!" thing too. It did take us a long time to realize that the oldest is just really out there when she PMSs.... in a scary way too. Just last spring we talked to her dr and told her exactly what was going on, and for how long it had been like this. She immediately diagnosed her with PMDD and put her on YAZ. Now it's more of a "normal" PMS that we see....and both girls go through it at the same time!! Thankfully her younger sister shows no signs of PMDD Hang in there! They do adjust and settled a bit as they get older

We came home with no books for my two year old. A few for my 5 year old. Normally we get 15ish books. I had to beat a hasty retreat.

These 'perimenopausal' things do not help either. My Dw's cycles vary from 2 weeks apart to sometimes 6 weeks apart. There is no scheduling of them, and it has been like this for 15 years now.

I just try to keep the hatches battened down, always.

You are very fortunate if you have a female who only has PMS every 28 days. It sets a maximum limit to how many you go through each year, and allows a disaster recovery period between the storms.

as I wipe the coffee off the keyboard............. I laughed so hard I was choking! Been there, done that........ little girls are like kittens, cute and playful but, sooner or later they show you their tail!

My brother has been having hormone treatments for prostate cancer. One of the side effects is hot flashes,.........he told me he now has more understanding for women. He also said he loves shopping and watching Oprah now. wise guy.
