PMS...YES? NO? STFU?

I am on an emotional rollercoaster today.

Sad, angry, bored, depressed, you name it and that’s me. Not a good mood to be found.

It’s hard to explain. I blame PMS, but it’s probably just the Corn Nuts. M’eh…I just feel blah.

Here’s the thing. I sometimes feel, like now for instance, that no matter what I do, it’s not good enough. At work, at home, it doesn’t matter.

I feel put upon or perhaps used. I don’t know what to call it. It’s like I give my all for everyone, but I’m not getting anything back.

I’m not talking money or material objects, I mean recognition and respect.

I feel like I’m being taken for granted, and that I’m doing everything.

I’m not an attention whore; I don’t need anyone to fawn all over me, in fact, that would make me feel really, really uncomfortable, however…

I would just like some recognition from the people in my life…some acknowledgement in my life that I am here, and I am appreciated.

God…Don’t I sound like a whiny bitch?

Sorry for the downer. It’s simply how I am feeling, so I thought I’d blog about it.

Any of you ever feel this way? Am I being selfish?

You can vote that I am a whiny bitch if you want.

Zoooooves!!

"I’m not talking money or material objects..." Wait, WHAT? You are a girl right?

Mike: Ha! Good one! Yes, the last time I checked I am a girl, I'm just not into all that stuff.

No, you are not selfish. You are a woman. I'm willing to bet we all have felt this way. I know I have.

Beth said...

Raquel: I know that somewhere in my head. Thanks!

Funny, I feel the exact same way today. It sucks.

Beth said...

Chick: I'm sorry hon. Hopefully it will pass soon.

I think most of us feel that way from time to time. Sometimes nothing seems to be going right. For me, it's been like the last 13 years. ha!

Hope you're feeling better today Schmoopalicious!

Beth said...

Jay: I suppose. It's just so tiresome, you know? Yes I am better today, thank you;)

When I get PMS I just watch some Everbody Loves Raymond and then everything's OK.

Beth said...

Phfrankie: You have them all on DVD, don't you?

Knight said...

I'm betting you feel that way because that is exactly what is happening. Take some time to do nothing for anyone but you. If your boss has to find his own car keys and ends up sleeping in the office perhaps he will realize your value. Or not. People suck.

Beth said...

Knight: I think you're right. I think I just needed confirmation that I'm not just feeling sorry for myself. You're right, people do suck!

Hell NO, girl, you are not selfish or whiney, and it's not just due to PMS.
I'm called a Stay-at-Home Mom, although I rarely stay at home. I love the rare day I do get to stay at home.
Miss 13 year old forgot her calculator, has a math test next class, there is only 5 minutes left of her break? Yep, I got there before break ended.
The Hub works 90 miles away, so the house, the vehicles, the girls, the 5 cats.
Glad, blessed to do it, but I hear ya, lady, a Thank You here and there would be cool.

Ame: I still for the life of me can't figure out the term SAHM. You are correct, you're never home. People just assume YOU'LL get everything done. I think I'm going to start slacking.
