Yes, it needs caps. It’s something new to me, this day three business. I heard about it from my mate Kim who alerted me to the notion to being totally cray cray on day three of your period. I recalled it one evening after a particularly gruelling day when I stopped, counted, and realised, I am on day three. Maybe I’m a day three crazy too now?
I’ve tried to do some research on the matter, typed into google “day three hormones” “day three crazy period” “day three period craziness” and I can’t find ANYTHING on it. But I know it’s true. I know because Eden text me this morning asking specifically about Day three crazies, like I was some expert. Which I’m not. But it would be nice to know I’m not alone.
I found this chart. Which doesn’t mean much to the non expert like myself…but…it looks like there is a day three spike in testosterone. Which could explain the insuppressible anger that I have on that day. Like anger, cranky, mean, ANGER. There’s also anxiety, irritability and mood swings thrown in for good measure. But day three is not like PMS, it’s angrier. Meaner than that. It can’t be fixed by mock cream tarts (by GOD I’ve tried that method). And just as soon as it arrives, it’s gone and a sense of normality returns. Until the next round that is.
Have you ever heard of this phenomenon? Do you experience it? Am I crazy? Actually, don’t answer that.
