Women in Tech

Has pmsing made you cry/ get emotional even when you did not want to?

Yesterday, I was having a design discussion with a senior engineer and in the middle of discussion I got really emotional and teary, even though I did not want to. I had to take a break to freshen up myself. I felt so embarrassed later.

      Wow, what a shitty response - people like you are the reason women don’t enter tech. Get the fuck out.

    It happens, its hormones. You did the right thing by recognizing it and taking a break. No need to be embarrassed.
    Its not what you feel but how you act on those feelings that matters. If you had started screaming, that would have been inappropriate. But stepping away was the right thing.

    I take two days off every month because of intense pain. I can't get out of bed. I do cry and get emotional. Hasn't happened in work setting because I'm good at maintaining moderation in front of people and also I'm too sick to go to work.
    But I once had to leave a meeting because of dysmenorrhea and just sent manager an email saying just that.

  • Yes, I have been emotional and wanted to throw my sandals at my boss who was nagging on some silly shit. I just got up and left for a restroom break.
