Whether you have your period each month or not, haven’t you ever wanted to yell at it? Well, here is your chance!
An open letter to my period.
Dear Menstrual Cycle,
I avoid you like the plague each month but you continue to show up just to say hello. My body usually gives me every indication that you will not be arriving but there you are, just like an unwelcome relative. You arrive like you are going on an all-inclusive vacation: you stay for a week and then make me overeat with chocolate and cake. The only difference is that your all-inclusive vacation is going to cost far less than my fertility treatments.
Period, I don’t want to see you. I know that what you represent is a good thing: a healthy body that is getting ready for babies so why don’t you help me make those babies? It seems like you get worse each month as if to laugh at me. As months drag on, you seem to make me a little more crampy, a little more achy and much more moody. But I will give you some credit, besides the movie,The Notebook, you are the only one that can make me cry in a second. One minute, I am happy and full of hope and the next minute you have arrived, and I am upset and feeling sorry for myself. This all-inclusive vacation will be closed next month so go find somewhere else to go!
