    As it happens I understand they were all attending one of Tashah's stylish footwear parties. No doubt Tucker passed out first, I wonder what they did to him....

    Auto-pay with a bank account helps dull the pain.

    A couple shots of your favorite adult beverage now and then doesn't hurt, either

    Re: Men have the male version of PMS

    I've read in the past that men have a cycle of seven weeks, but I don't know if that's true or not.

    @ WI - Your question could be asked to anyone who suffers from depression or any other mental imbalance that is triggered by hormones. When you're not there, life is fine, and when you're there, it feels like a train wreck. Hormones are powerful and not many people can control themselves when changes happen.

    If your wife is hitting you though, that's not cool.

    Def true.
    I had a rage moment last Friday.
    That is totally out of the norm for me.

    It's all about a specific trigger.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Men do go through andropause, but men also have cycles. They're daily, rather than monthly like for women. Testosterone levels are highest in the morning and gradually fall through the day.

    And like for women, symptoms may vary even within the same person. My PMS symptoms aren't always the same. Some months are worse than others.

    Mega, you may be having sympathetic symptoms with your wife. There is no monthly cycle that I'm aware of for men, but that's a pretty common phenomena between partners who live together.

    What really blew my mind, though, was when I had a partner who could tell exactly where I was in my cycle by how I smelled. What made this impressive is that once every few months, I'll skip a week or two randomly - like my cycle is re-setting itself. So it wasn't a matter of him just memorizing how long my cycles are. Even when it would "reset" he would be able to tell before I would. It was really strange.
    Perhaps, but it's not just once a month - it could be more freqent or less and there's a sure fire cure.

    The Male Hormonal Cycle

    Food for thought. I was watching The Big Bang Theory the other day, and Sheldon mentioned a 33 day male hormonal cycle, and I thought it sounded interesting, and probably valid (most of the stuff on the show is valid science), so I googled that and up came this blog.

    I stand corrected. I was only aware of the daily cycle.

    Interesting. I wonder now if men and women "sync up," a la megaprogram.

    BDBoop, the only thing I have noticed is that I followed with a couple day delay (or delay a couple a few days) my wife’s cycle. I was always easily corrected. Now we don’t have any periods where my mood changes. I just have to work at it a bit harder now, but I can have drugs to straighten things out now and keep my mood up beat. (This is just too much fun. thx)
