A love hate relationship.


Hormones are my nemesis.

As much as I hate the inconvenience of having periods, I am thankful that my body is working correctly and letting me know that I am still, presumably, capable of having babies.

However it is the whole other mess of crap that comes with it that I could do without.

I become a whole other person, a very clumsy, forgetful person. It’s easy to understand why women were once classed as being ‘incapable’ in the past. I can only assume that this was due to hormones making them slightly insane.

I walk in to things that have always been there, stub my toes, stand on things, fall over. My sense of direction is shot to s**t and my spacial awareness becomes non-existent.

Basically, I turn in to a “girl”.

My brain cannot focus on technical aspects, it seems to switch on to autopilot and there is no room for anything else other than basic functions.

On the other hand I become super woman in the home. My organisation skills are totally on point, I run the home with military precision and it becomes an excellent time to have a big clear out and clean up.

I make fantastic plans and everything becomes as clear as crystal. I just also have to deal with being bloated, migraines, greasy hair and being hotter than the freaking sun, but at least my house is gleaming and I have meal plans sorted. 🙂


Don’t ever let anyone make you think you’re not good enough. 

Follow your dreams right now! Don’t wait until tomorrow, 

next week, next year. Stop planning, start doing 🙂


Be happy and keep smiling 🙂

  1. I can totally relate. It messes me up too!

    1. It’s scary how much of a Jekyll and Hyde situation it is.

      1. Yeah, I get so emotional and irritable I don’t even like myself during those moments 🙄

      2. Me too. I become the words most paranoid person but also super organised 🤔

      3. Lol! We could write an entire book about it and it would be a bestseller – all emotions, action scenes, breakdowns, and laughter combined in a span of 3-5 days! 😂

      4. It would! It’s not talked about enough neither. Crazy hormones!

  2. The joys of ” period brain” I will often forget really obvious words..I”m like “Ugh, it’s white…kind of pungent…SALT” the word is salt. lol

    1. Yet we are still capable of ruling the world 😘
