What is the best way to understand why men seem more reactive/angry when women are irritable (as in PMS)?
let's try rephrasing this to meet guidelines.... is it just me or are men overreactive and/or dismissive to pms symptoms like irritability. it seems like the people in my life expect me to be sugary sweet all the time and I'm not! (who is) why is it during this time of month the men in my life seem to overreact (get angry) when I have irritable moments? and it's not like I am some screaming lunatic, I just get sensory overload from a messy house, loud tv, and demanding children. anyway, how can I understand this phenomonon in my life? it would be nice to have support and a hug, rather than another judgmental person to contend with! do other women experience the same?
