Have you ever been PMSing and seen a really emotional dog food commercial and you couldn't help but cry? I know I have. Let's not deny all the ridiculous things we've cried over while PMSing; that's what happens when your hormones are out of control and you love everything and hate everything at the same time. It's one of the many gifts of having a period. You know, right up there with ridiculous cravings and waking up at 2 a.m. to realize your sheets look like a crime scene. We all want to believe that periods get better with age, but no — you’re a 30-year-old adult crying and slobbering like a baby because someone at work finished the last chocolate chip peanut butter granola bar in the kitchen, and now you have to eat a plain granola bar.
A few brave Redditors recently shared the wackiest things that have brought them to tears during that time of the month, and to be honest, you can probably relate. The period-havers of the world all know what it's like to completely lose your sh*t and sob hysterically because your dog looked at you funny or your curls fell flat or you saw a crunchy leaf and it was, like, really pretty, but then you accidentally stepped on it and crushed it and now it’s dead.
Although we understand the basic science of hormone fluctuations causing PMS, there's no rhyme or reason to exactly what triggers our PMS meltdowns, but it is what it is. All you can do is hunker down, grab a Snickers, and hope it passes quickly.
How bad can it get, though? That's what these Redditors were trying to determine. Each person shared, hands down, the most ridiculous things they've cried over because of PMS, and, well, it gets interesting.
If you ever thought your PMS was bad, you ain't seen nothing yet. Some of these may make your roller coaster of hormones seem like a walk in the park. Take it away, everyone.
