Hormones and Harmonies

I have been a whack job the past couple of days. I’m way too emotional. I go through highs of giggles and laughter, and the next minute I’m breaking down. My nerves are all out of whack. I’m getting so worked up over the smallest things. My hormones are raging!! I feel like I shouldn’t still be having these problems. Well actually, hormones affect everyone, through every stage of life. Really though should mine be raging this much? I’ll be laughing hysterically at one point, then crying hysterically about what someone said to me another point. What’s the deal?!?! Here are some of hormones effects:

1. stimulation or inhibition of growth
2. mood swings
3. induction or suppression of apoptosis (programmed cell death)
4. activation or inhibition of the immune system
5. regulation of metabolism
6. preparation of the body for mating, fighting, fleeing, and other activity
7. preparation of the body for a new phase of life, such as puberty, parenting, and menopause
8. control of the reproductive cycle
9. hunger cravings

Well seems like I’m showing the effects of hormones…go figure. Shoot I’m not used to this. I already have enough on my plate, I don’t need to worry about my raging hormones. I’m probably just PMSing……
