A sudden outburst of temper, often used to describe female anger at something trivial. Originally regional from American South. Thought to originate from contraction of "hysterical fit."
example: She threw a hissy fit when she pulled out an OPK from the drawer last night.
This is exactly what I did. I'm not proud of it but I'm also not ashamed to admit it.
Last night was cycle day 10 and seeing as we are once again going to give the "Sperm meets Egg" plan another go (It did kinda, sorta work last month) it was time to start using OPK's. I'm note sure what set me off exactly...but after pulling open that bottom drawer and ripping the package open...it happened....I lost it.
I stood there for a moment...
I stomped and cried...
and cried and stomped.
That's right...I threw a big ol' hissy fit...and you know what?
It was perhaps just the release I needed. This morning I woke up a little less angry, sad and frustrated.
I might have even cracked a smile.
