I had the urge
to sit in the rocking chair and rock myself violently.
Spent the evening
in the company of strangers at study group, felt very comfortable very
sociable. Had been insular and unsociable since a close bereavement 18
months ago. Enjoyed the evening and stayed late with no feeling of being
trapped or wanting to escape.
Ate a plate of
turkey sandwiches guilt free, I had been a vegetarian for 10 years.
I've been dippy
all day, I was definitely having a "blonde" day, I put things
on top of the car. and drove around town with them still there.
Feeling more feminine
Still girly and
dippy, people commenting that Im not as efficient as usual, think
Im "away with the fairies".
shopping and had unusual interest in buying clothes, make up, jewellery.
Never usually interested in this sort of shopping. Bought 9 blouses, 2
dresses, 1 skirt, perfume and make up. Spent over £300 without a
qualm, wanted to spoil myself and treat myself. Didn't feel guilty afterwards.
Went to homeopathy
college and people commented on the way I had dressed, clothes with matching
accessories and makeup. Have decided to grow hair longer, more feminine.
Someone said I looked very confident and was glowing and bright.
Sociable and confident,
with slightly less energy. Still taking more care of my appearance, still
"girly", wearing more makeup and skirts, dressing smarter.
Still fluffy and
driving my car today, couldn't find reverse, driving as if I was still
in my old car sold 10 year ago (dreamt about it last night).
Doing silly little
things (due to PMT?) like putting inside the fridge things that should
go in the cupboard.
Again doing silly
little things. Forgetful.
Feeling very impatient
well but in the morning I wasnt moody - I always am if I dont
to work and Im still being forgetful. Before I closed the front
door I had to go back inside three times.
At work they said
to me that the lights are on but nobodys in. That is not me.
Worse PMT Ive

I am in my head
and arms and hands - the rest of me is disconnected, but also supporting
dont want to shift position of legs even a bit arms and head
move, rest of body feels its just there, not heavy, just quite still.
Sensation as if
even after an afternoon at clinic.
Looked at my arms,
and connected with how they have been during summers my arms linked
me with my past self, especially summers, holidays, back activities. Had
brief flashbacks to various summer holidays it seemed to link those
times with the present.
Having a drink
of water, suddenly saw arms as being strong, efficient, useful things
and I liked having them there.
Anxious on waking
(it was stormy). Anxious about global warming.
Aware of the shape
the teeth make in the jaw again. My awareness seems to be in the space
between my teeth.
Have to go to
a seminar, would normally want to go, but feel very reluctant. Crave some
peace and quiet.
Woke feeling very
low. Sensation as if, too much to do, feel sorry for myself, teary.

inward as usual.
The room is slightly
empty, not quite rich enough. Id be nice if there was a lit candle
so Id have something to look at. (Noticed a design on a cover for
the first time despite it being there for several years). This room doesnt
have any blue in it. It needs more rich things. Seeing it in a different

Happy in myself.
to connect with people and things.
Able to go to
supermarket in the evening and be focused and buy a few things, without
shutting down. Very unusual, especially for the first day of my period.
Before I took
the remedy, if I was in a shopping centre, Id feel negative about
not having enough money, things not working, and comparing self to others
who "have". Would still feel it would be all right in the end.
Can still get
PMT but less intense or manic.
Since last year

Already more buoyant.
Effects of remedy either short lived or Ive accommodated them quickly.
- stuff happens. Feel depleted and at the mercy of the world.
It seems that
the world has become a place of limited resources, so have to think careful
what I put out, and less like a place of abundance where I can simply
get on with it. Feel more like a miser than an abundant person (not materially).
like it was a hostile universe, like being in the desert and you had to

both indoors and outdoors.
What would help?
A sense of lightness and buoyancy.
The world seemed a less attractive place. It was flatter, colours ceased
to be gorgeous.
An overall perception
of the world out there and me in my world - separate and closed. Not a
massive deal but still there.
Left the car unlocked
in the city centre. Very untypical.
Not as focused.

uneventful compared with my normally very hectic but unstructured lifestyle.
I would have normally felt quite tired after such a day but was still
mentally alert and energetic, so did some paperwork and reading.
Watched two TV
programmes in the late afternoon (unusual). Felt well but lazy.

Annoyed at myself
at getting my timetable wrong and ending up flustered.

I am surprised
I have written so much. I do not normally express my feelings/thoughts.
No, I havent been drinking!
Usually wash hair
before breakfast (not every day), but today decided to go out shopping
well and alert.
Being alert mentally
is the only thing of note.
Notice I have
not been in perpetual motion as is normal for me. Perhaps because I am
mentally alert, I am thinking about what I am going to do instead of rushing
headlong into the many things previously listed regardless of whether
I really have time to do them. (overview)
Very high spirits.
Left with a slight
anxious feeling after a dream.
A colleague has
had a rough time. I would normally be very concerned and be thinking a
lot about how I can help her, what can I do, believing I can help her,
much of the night, but I feel distanced, though still concerned, only
thinking of her once or twice. Maybe I am seeing things more clearly and

Slept on settee

reason. Felt something might happen to my family, husband and sons - car
accident - very restless - similar symptoms before last time 8 months
ago. Went to bed had argument with husband. Felt upset, depressed and

Returned to work.
Incident at work,
made me feel uncomfortable and embarrassed, upset me. The way I am reacting
to this event is out of all proportion to the actual event. Like it has
pushed a few buttons in me and bringing up emotion and feelings
that dont belong to here and now.

Out with friends,
still popping into my head in day, feeling very sensitive about it. Flashbacks

Again upset by
work incident, angry with self for letting it bother me so much and allowing
it to happen in the first place.

Level of frustration
felt on driving is lower than normal.
Feelings of anger
towards former work colleagues were not, for once, uppermost in my mind.
I absorbed (heard)
more than I normally would from what was on Radio 4.
Wanting to bury
the hatchet with former work colleagues; very angry about these people,
but wanting to put the past behind me lifes a bit short to

resolve. Thinking more now about family, things read in the newspaper.

of the remedy has been a calmer feeling, mentally and emotionally. Less

I have a feeling
in my body as if slightly drunk, a warmth through my body, relaxed. Senses
as if dulled; hearing and vision dulled; feel the edge has been taken
