It got me thinking, why does the conversation always end there? 99% of women will readily admit to having suffered from TCCS (temporarily crazy chic syndrome) at some point in their lives. Some are even afflicted with it on what seems like a monthly basis. In some cases it even becomes permanent. Yet, in 2011, I still have never heard of any sort of treatment, support groups, or classes that teach women to deal with becoming temporarily crazy.
It seems like we've just given up on coming up with any sort of cure for TCCS. TCCS is accepted as normal, and damnit, I think that's just wrong. Even within groups of women it is tolerated and accepted. If a woman does something crazy, other women just shrug it off as another case of TCCS. Sometimes it even leads to a crazy-chain. Incidentally, Ozzy Osbourne's famous Crazy Train song was originally about the crazy-chain phenomenon until Sharon, you guessed it, went crazy on him. All aboard, Ozzy. All aboard indeed.
Most people just place the blame on hormones. I personally think that's a little condescending and I think most women would agree with me. After all, anytime I've ever asked a woman whom I thought was suffering from TCCS if she is having her period she quickly proceeds to label me a jackass who knows nothing about women.
Besides, the hormones excuse just doesn't work! I've tried it. I told my ex-girlfriend that she shouldn't be mad at me. It wasn't my fault, it was my hormones that make me stick my dick in any woman I meet. Hormones are clearly an awful excuse because she tried to stab me in the shoulder before I even finished explaining the biochemistry of the male human.
I think its time to stand-up and finally acknowledge that TCCS won't go away by itself. I've decided to start a foundation to find the cure for TCCS. If you're a woman that suffers from this condition or a man that has ever apologized for no reason because your girlfriend was being crazy only to get yelled at even more for not even knowing what you were apologizing for - I urge you to donate now.
