So this might be weird and TMI but at 32 with two children I'm experiencing PMS for the first time and it's my family that has to live with it...
I'm thinking of making a calming candle spell I can light specifically when feeling hormonal/irritable. I can take aspirin for the back cramps and deal with the bloating but loosing my temper with very young children is not acceptable.
Any advice or experience from other witches concerning this volitile time would greatly appreciated. Magickal or otherwise.
It's both fascinating and frustrating that now that my depression seems to be gone and my emotions have stabalized that I'm starting to experience "normal" mood swings that my female peers have been complaining about for years that I didn't experience myself. The running theory is that my depression was masking the emotional symptoms of menstruating and now that that imbalance has been fixed the other things are more noticeable.
Either way, I'm used to feeling down and misserable, but before when I felt anoyed I tended to turn it inward and express more self-loathing. Now I'm getting frustrated and yelling or snapping at my family, walking away and leaving them to cry while I calm down. And it isn't fair to them... They deserve better and I want to give it too them in any way possible, including supplementing spell work.
