    Spontaneous outbursts of tears.

    Every month or so, a welling up of emotions will occur, a critical point will be reached and a silent cascade of tears will fall from my eyes, running down my cheeks.

    I am very lucky when this happens alone, or when I can catch it in time to run to the bathroom to cry alone, but there have been unexpected times, like once in the middle of class, and another time in the middle of a book club meeting, where a topic of conversation mixed with a swirling of undercurrent emotions has gotten me so wound up that in front of everyone, while speaking, I just began to cry.

    People tend to view me as a strong person, so when they see me cry their faces kinda look like this .

    So yeah, to be a girl.

    I have a university degree and enjoy reading up on biology, but I can still imagine people, especially men who do not have this experience, wondering about this.

    Pain isn't the same thing as a disability.
    You are definitely bitter.

    bluemonday, perhaps you do not feel premenstrual cramps but do you think that millions of other women are lying when they say they do?

    I experience a myriad of premenstrual symptoms.

    And I am also the opposite of a hypochondriac so when I feel some pain, or something "off" in my body, it is very much so real.

    Not true, I took Anatomy & Physiology in 2004/2005 and I forgot you couldn't sense an organ (and am so fuzzy on details even now I'm only believing this fact because you say so). It seems logical that you could sense it when you think of skin/bladder/etc.

    Also, I know for fact that a uterus contracts much like it does in labour to expel out the uterine lining that isn't being used for the egg. I've also timed my menstrual cramps and found it waxes and wanes. So what am I feeling when I get cramps? I am confused.

    Fucking hell! This is the worst thread in the history of shit threads of our time!

    No, I don't think they are lying - I think they are deficient, see my post.

    Nutritional/hormonal deficiency which can and should be addressed. It's ridiculous to take the attitude that "I am a woman and therefore 1 week in every 4 I am going to feel like shit and there's nothing I can do about it. Also my judgement and decision-making abilities, mood and behavior will be that of a raving lunatic. But you have to forgive me 'cos that's how I'm made."

    Ridiculous and open to ridicule.

    Intelligent men would either not give a fuck or else realize that people do not commonly "sense" internal organs, as I have already said.

    Hmmmm...

    What bout our CNS??!?!?!

    I can sense pain in my ovaries, and who cares if it is my brain that is "telling" me or translating the signal that there is something going on in my ovaries?

    The pain still comes from a source, and the pain is still felt, and hence, real.

    Pain is/can be disabling. Stop splitting hairs. You're still pissed because I called you weak. If anyone is bitter, it's you.

    This must be one of those "rare" times.
