Whether you’ve got your flow down to a science or it manages to sneak up on you each month, there are many thoughts that rattle through your brain from beginning to end. Of course every woman’s period and side effects are different. Some of us veg out, others exercise the cramps away, but you can guarantee that at least one of these thoughts has gone through your head while period-ing.
“Why am I crying?”
Even though you know that commercial with the dog and cat in it isn’t that sad and you know that the dog didn’t really die in real life, you’re a balling mess on the couch for two minutes while your BF looks at you wide-eyed, rubbing your back for comfort.
“At least I’m not pregnant!!”
No need to elaborate here.
“Who says chocolate isn’t a breakfast food?”
Cut out the middle man, eliminate the muffin part, and go straight for those chocolate chips, girl. This is judgement free zone. Besides, coffee has caffeine in it, right?
“My uterus! This must be what death feels like…”
Sometimes nothing can make the pain go away, but just remember, you can get through this!
“I know these pants fit yesterday…”
Bloating and fluid retention are just some wonderful side effects of shedding your uterine layer each month…as if that wasn’t enough.
“I’m going to lose it if I have to deal with one more person today.”
People need to recognize that there is a time and place to tell stories about their pet bird and now is not it.
“Did I take my tampon out?”
We’ve all had that moment of panic where you aren’t sure whether you just doubled up, or you’re free flowing into your period undies.
“You have no clue what this feels like!”
Period pain is a very specific type of pain. Don’t try to relate unless you’ve been there.
“Just let me sleep, and I’ll see you next week.”
Your energy is low, and you don’t even remember what the word focus means.
“The end is near!”
By the time your flow is slowing down, you know there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. Things will be back to normal soon…until next month.
