Just wondering if anyone else is finding they have a short fuse? I've found that right from the start (4 weeks when the MS hit) I've been really grumpy. Not all the time but way more often than I think I normally am. I feel terrible about it but I can't seem to stop myself snapping at my DH, mother and even sometimes my DS. Argh. It seems worse when I'm feeling sick, which probably isn't that surprising but also just happens when I'm not on the verge of throwing up.

I seem to be the same, however my short fuse it due to being so tired and have constant migraines. Also I am in a very stressful situation. All in all I just dont seem to have the patience for anything and I hate being like this.

I think I'm the same - grumpy more because I'm tired. I'm not fun to live with when tired. I have no idea how I'm going to deal with the sleep deprivation that is to come...

I'm exactly the same. Poor dh cops it a lot. And the kids at work...I feel so sorry for them when I'm having a bad day

Me too. I have to make a conscious effort to pull myself out of a bad mood as once its settled in I can't shake it. I get angry over the smallest things too.

I've nearly resigned in a fit of rage several times since getting pregnant. I've discovered my tolerance and patience levels simply don't exist anymore.
My DH has to remind me to calm down at home - "it's not good for the baby!".

Easily aggitated is better to describe my moods.
I snapped at someone at work cos it just felt like chinese whispers and I just really wanted to blow up.
DH isn't getting much love, but the bugger is eating everything so nothing left for lunch for him or me and I need to go do more shopping only 4 days later, and going to the gym and coming home at 8pm.
