Period.

So whose idea was it to give females periods? Because let me take a second to complain about Eve.

SO you’re gonna tell me that because Eve ate a dam apple the WHOLE ENTIRE female gender has to be punished?! YOU’RE telling me GOD decided to punish us ALL because of HER mistake?!

I’m sorry but I grew up with the mindset that you don’t punish the child for the parents mistakes.

Safe to say. Eve is definitely not invited to any family events.

Anyway I don’t need to tell you that periods suck because everyone knows. But what most people fail to talk about is while there’s a lot of physical pain such as cramps, headaches, back aches, tender breasts and it can even physically hurt down that area there’s also a lot of mental things that go on.

Side note: Did you know you can get more period symptoms as you get older and sometimes you’re period can get worse or better as you age? Let’s just say I finally understand how bad cramps can be.

It’s not just mood swings which is what everyone comments about and like to use against women but its the depressive thoughts that can wrap it’s tentacles around your mind. You get this aching restlessness in your body. This overwhelming feeling of self loath and that the world is just in total darkness. There’s a sense of emptiness that consumes your heart ironically. What I hate doing is crying. All these negative thoughts fill my head and I just cry. I hate everything and cry. I hate myself and cry.

And what’s worse is that you know it’s your period making you feel these things. You don’t want to feel these things. It kills you. You try to just think happy and do what makes you happy but it only masks what the hormones are making you feel.

So what do we do? We try our hardest to control ourselves from being monsters. We take medicine to trick our bodies. We stuff our face with junk food to feel better. We do what we have to do to survive every month.

And we do. Because we’re women. We bleed once a month and still live.

I guess we’re like witches although some like to replace the W with a B.

“Never piss off someone who bleeds for a week every month and doesn’t die.”
