Princess Murks is battlefield for estrogen and progesterone

Uh. A human being is a biological compound. There are many interesting chemical, physical, etc processes going on in the body. So interesting. specially interesting is the way they effect your thoughts, your mind, your behavior.
Princess Murks is making observations with herself. Measuring her body temperature every morning. They say it shows the balance of the estrogen and progesterone in the body: which of the hormone is dominating. Approximately it should be that two weeks are for estrogen and then, the next two, for progesterone. It may vary for different reasons. Anyway, when the morning temperature is lower then the estrogen is ruling, when the morning temperature rises the progesterone takes over, and again, and again... They defeat each other in approximately every two weeks. Uh, what a battle!
Princess Murks has been writing a reaction paper to the situation:
Well. The feelings are diverse. In general, I am against any kind of war and battles but in this situation when the sequence is relatively equal and well-known then the little struggle makes the life actually more interesting and eventful. And, at the same time, the variation makes changes also in the other spheres - the activities, the thoughts the feelings, etc.
For example, when I feel the urgent need to make sports, go out and run to the end of the world, as well as make new perfect plans for my life, have many ideal ideas, solutions to every problem, as well as feel energetic and full of confidence and power etc.. this means tomorrow the estrogen will have been defeated the Other. And then I have much energy, can accomplish enormous amount of things but also want ot sleep a lot and deeply.
And, the other... when progesterone has the lead. Mostly no energy, have to force myself to do something besides nothing. Can go out with people who are not my close friends and not really care about being happy and cheerful with them. Just nod and maybe laugh a bit when the joke was really funny. Do not care about being nice. Do not care about what the future brings. Just floating with the stream or just hiding in my bubble.
Quite the opposite sides of myself! Fantastic! Just supporting the winning team...
