Ok, I suppose those are relatively strong words. And yet I wholly believe them right now. Why must I have a uterus? Oh wait. For child bearing. Although if I’m too much of a baby too handle some cramps, I might just want to x that off the list of things to do eh?
But for real.. I fell asleep at 11:30 last night and at 3:49am I woke out of a dead sleep, looked at the clock and my first thought was “way too early” followed by an immediate intense bout of cramps. The burst into tears kind. Poor FI woke up and asked what was wrong but I shrugged him off. Nothing he can do anyways and he had to be up by 5 so I figured I’d let him rest an hour. Got out bed, peed, trie to go back to bed. No way that was happening. So I had a shower at four in the morning and then made myself a hot water bottle, took Maxidol and made some coffee.
And then I waited it out. Thank heaven for Maxidol and heat because two hours later I feel much better. Like maybe I will be able to go be a functional person in four hours when I have to go to class.
Why does this have to hurt so friggin much?? It’s like my inside are ripping out. The only reason I don’t like, straight up pass out from the pain is because it comes in waves so there’s time in between to gain my composure.
On a side note, it’s absolutely terrible to look at the clock and go “oh six o clock” and then realizee you’ve been up for more than two hours already. Ugh. Coffee anyone?

Yeah, roughly once a month. I have PMDD, which is like super PMS. It sucks. Most of the time I like it though

I started a new BC about a month ago and Christmas evening I had those awful cramps herald and unexpected and early period. I told my dad it was all his fault I am female. He laughed at me, but at least I got an awesome new heat pad for Christmas.

This is why I take BC that only gives me 4 periods a year. I don’t miss having 12 a single bit.
Side note: I hate being a woman sometimes because we have to do our hair, put on makeup, somewhat dress up, etc. just to look presentable (well, unless your hair air dries perfect and you have a flawless complextion, which I don’t). I wish I was a guy and could just throw on some jeans, a decent shirt, and run out the door.
I also hate that we have to sit down to pee. Haha, so stupid but that annoys me. Especially when it’s cold and the last thing I want to do it pull down my pants. Lol

Did u mean my life?!
Here’s the thing though: Mine normally lasts about 4 days, but I’m bedridden for the first day. Like, I can’t move without letting out a near blood-curdling scream. Every other day I’m absolutely fine. I hate it. The Ponstan helps.
