The worst part of this book was recognizing myself in so much of it. The author has good ideas but some are unrealistic (like having dh take the kids out for dinner when you know it will be a bad day). She also recommended charting to know when PMS will strike. Well that may work for women with regular cycles but when they vary from 24-30 days it's near impossible to really know in advance. I think this book would be more helpful for younger women (mid 20s to mid 30s).
The author's big three for managing PMS are stress reduction (impossible with 5 children and three of them being teenagers), exercise (I don't like to) and eating properly (I love caffeine and sweets).... so basically there are ways to help but I don't like any of them... the only other things were some natural supplements (not my thing) and Rx. So I guess what I need to do is pray that menopause strikes fast.
