PMS: Friend or Enemy?

Sorry, the title was just a little Ames & Ilg joke for those of us with both PMS *and* a 3 1/2-year-old right now...

Anyway, I was wondering if we could talk about PMS. I get it, but don't have mood swings. Instead, I get really clumsy. Yesterday I stubbed my toe on the oven and slammed my anklebone into the wall in the space of 3 minutes (all before 7 am), and the rest of the day continued that way. Years ago when I was working in a professional kitchen I cut myself with a knife 11 times in one 14-hour shift. My mom used to get clumsy PMS, too, but I haven't heard of this happening to anyone else.

It makes me wonder if there are different forms of PMS that we just haven't heard or thought of before.

Would you guys be willing to share what happens to you before you get your menstrual period, and if there's anything you've done that lessens whatever symptoms you have?
