Let’s take it there- Periods

This is for all the ladies out there. Periods suck. I don’t believe I’ve met one person who likes them. Let me tell you a story: My periods used to be HELL. When I was drinking and not taking care of myself. I used to: Throw up, turn purple, faint, feel dizzy/cold, not be able to keep food down and sleep. Every.Damn.Month. Finally when I got sober they got a little better. NOT much but better. I used to have cramps from hell, turn purple, feel dizzy and cold, not be able to eat much of anything, have a heating pad basically glued to my stomach, take aspirin like they were tick tacks.

Now? I still have a heating pad glued to my stomach, my cramps are nowhere near as bad as they once were. (they still suck, but I’m not screaming bloody murder anymore) I just feel like shit. I can keep food down. I don’t turn purple anymore. I certainly don’t faint. I also don’t feel dizzy anymore. But I wanted to educate people on the importance of taking care of themselves. Frankly I don’t want my period. I’m not having kids so what’s the point? I don’t want it. I don’t need it. Bye.
