In my procrastination, I came across this thread...
Oh gosh that woman that wrote that letter is AH-MAZING!!! She totally channelled the thoughts of every hormonal, suicidal, homicidal, mood-controlled, pain-inflicted girl and woman with their period (or 'my things' as me, mum and sis call it). This lady deserves a million dollars, seriously!
Anyway, I feel so sorry for those who got theirs at a young age. I was 14 and a half when I got mine. By year 9, most girls in my year had theirs. I don't know what's worse, having them when no else does or not having them when everyone does! I truly thought there was something wrong with me! But i soooo regret ever wanting them.
I get very bad cramps, so much so that pain meds often don't help. Often i'm layed up in bed with the hot water bottle for the first 24 hours or so. And i don't know about anybody else, but all I seem to do when I get them is sleep. I'm never hungry and even the junkiest of foods don't get me.. ugh! I feel gross just think about it!
It sucks for those who have theirs irregularly. Mine comes every 20-23 days.. yep every 3 weeks. One week I have my things, and then 1 great amazing week and then 1 week of grouchyness and moods! I'm a stressful and anxious person anyway, but in the few days before my things, I'm the queen of bi*tches! And then I get the things again
Does anyone have brothers here? It's sooo hard having this with bros. I think Older Bros would be alright. But mine are all younger then me, wayyyyyyy younger. So they're not ready for the 'talk' yet.
Gah! I hate these things!
....Oh and interestingly the song 'What it feels like for a girl' by the Glee Boys just came on my itunes! haha funny! These lyrics are so truuueeeeee!! Every Boy and Man on this planet needs to take note of these lyrics!!!!!
