My Body Knows...
My body has a way of knowing important holidays and trips. I swear, my reproductive organs have a built-in calendar. My ovaries count down days until the next special occasion, then seem to pop a few days before said event.
For the last few years I've had my period on every important holiday (Christmas and New Years), trip (family vacation to Fl, Rhinebeck), and birthday- both mine and Hubs. Sometimes I think I'm in the clear with holidays that are closer together, but my body always tricks me.
Is this some kind of joke?
I started lightly spotting last Monday- not 5 days ago, but the week before. I thought- hey, plenty of time. I'll get it in a couple days, the heavy days will be over by CT S&W. I'm STILL waiting for it to start. Ugh. So now, thanks to mother nature, I'll have my period for both CT and MD S&W. Fantastic!
It's like my body knows it will be around large clusters of other women so it has to show how much estrogen it can throw around. Nice, hunh?
My period usually last 10-14 days. I bitch about it all the time. It's just my natural cycle. I could control it with birth control pills, but I don't want to put hormones into my system for convenience sake.
Last night I had such a headache in class that I was seeing spots, sweating and shaking. After class let out, I stopped at Walgreens and bought Midol. The big blue box. I took two without water and prayed for either sleep or death.
Today I have the remnants of the headache, but I feel less bloated!
Have a happy period...not effin' likely.
