Im 70 years old and have always been effected by the full moon....sleepless nights, skin isues, irritable....

 

I mentioned to my Doctor (man)..he didnt snicker but dismissed it....the nurse smiled and said, Doctor Ive had those symptoms  my entire life, she is right...

 

Small point but I wonder if the nurse was being kind or if anyone else notices changes in yourself..

If you can find one, ask a former telephone switchboard operator about the full moon and the noticeable craziness of customers who were impacted by that moon.

 

They didn't need a calendar to tell them about the stage the moon was in ! ! !

You are probably a werewolf. Do you prefer gold jewelery over silver?

@ProudMa  My neighbour was a bartender in another life, and he said there is definitely something to it. My two SILs are nurses and worked many years in nursing homes. They are firm believers. I don't think it's just women, it's everyone. My DH doesn't worry about it because I'm always a little off-kilter!

Frequent blackouts and find your clothes shredded on the floor? Missing chickens in the neighborhood?

For all the years I worked in hospitals (Radiology), people swore it was true. Full moon  = people get crazy = ER goes wild! 

 

Not saying you're crazy, just sharin' Smiley LOL

There are studies out there usually disproving theories of full moons and everything from the mentally ill to crime to women's cycles.

 

When one hears that the full moon affects anything, one will see it happening because it is believed.  In other words, they fit the behavior to the full moon when the same behavior occurs during other phases of the moon.

 

People react to myths and superstitions because they believe them to be true.

I am scared to death during the full moon.  Causes me to have nightmares.  😱 I have to wedge a chair up against my door.
