    One time over the summer when I was hanging out with my boyfriend, we were cooking and the Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy was on TV. Now, for the past week or so I’d had a bunch of people in my family picking on me for being a miserable child (which I was, I’m not denying that), and it had started getting to me.

    After a funny part involving Billy doing something stupid and Mandy doing her usual miserable bitch thing, my boyfriend turned to me and said, “You know, sometimes yo remind me of Mandy.”

    I burst out crying and asked him if I was really that miserable of a person. Apparently he meant it as I’m constantly dealing with stupid people, but I took it as him saying I was never happy, so… yeah.

    One time, I was laying in bed and listening to music and I started laughing for no reason; I was utterly concerned that I was going crazy, then I started crying because my “friends” neglecting me at the time. But, then I started laughing again. I then starting crying because I wanted my mom to know I love her so much. Weird…

    i cry about nonsense all the time while PMSing! my worst was probably when we were at the restaurant Red Lobster and we had this really nice waitress and at the end she was talking about how we can fill out a survey to tell them how everything was and how she did. my grandpa then told her how she was one of our best waitresses and made the meal more enjoyable because she was so nice. my dad also made a comment to her about how great she was. i felt so happy for her and thought about how i would feel if i was her and literally started bawling right in the middle of the restaurant. my family still brings it up and it happened like almost 2 months ago.

    I totally understand. My boyfriend gets so mad because when i’m on my period i become the biggest cry baby ever. Its not that commercials touch me or anything but like he can be messing around with me and i’ll just start bawling and get mad. Its awful how bad my moods range.

    oh….my….God….

    I cry everytime for like… at least 2 times in some random day of my period. My boyfriend lives far away and I’m on a budget to visit him. He can’t come here because he has to apply for a visa. I repeat stuff I say to him about life and death with love. He gets tired but understands.

  • Gwen

    I totally know how you feel. I cry over stupid things when I pms that wouldn’t have bugged me otherwise. One cried because my brother ate my chocolate bar that I put in the fridge because it was melted. Stereotypical pms?

  • Gretchen

    I was in a Pizza Hut and I cried because I saw an overweight little boy out to eat with his family. I just thought his future and how cruel kids can be and the tears just started flowing.

    my boyfriend and i were hanging out doing nothing. Suddenly he said he was bored and i started bawling and couldnt stop for like an hour. He was so confused and didnt know what to. When i finally stopped my cat came over and licked my toes and i started crying again. It was a long day.

  • Cody

    Haha, that’s kinda cute if you ask me!!! I know the feeling, though….
    Right at my PMS time my bf broke up with me, and that night my mum and my sisters were watching High School Musical with me and right when Troy and Vanessa were about to kiss I burst in to tears. My mum and sisters were so confused…. I was going on about how my boyfriend would never treat me like that and why can’t yr.7 boys be like Troy??? So over him now but at least I understand why my sisters and mum were in stiches from laughter!!!!
