Has any woman actually died from being a woman? Because it might be me.

I'm almost positive I've told you before that growing up I thought menstrual cramps was a big load of BS meant only to save weak, lazy high school girls from participating in gym class. My monthly torture lasted maybe 24 hours so I just didn't get it.

Then God spoke to me saying, "Stop being so judgmental!"

And I was all, "oh, puh-LEASE! She just wants attention."

Then God spoke further saying, "Just wait until I put you in your place, young lady."

Fast forward three kids and twenty years later and ohdeargodinheaven can I actually overdose on Midol? Because I'm thinking that's where this is headed. And guess what? I asked my Mom if she'd write a note excusing me from parenting today and she said no.

God wins.

** Sorry to the two male readers I have. Or used to have before they read this post. Come back in a few days and I'll be normal again. I promise. Well, not normal in the average societal definition of the word, but normal as in back to my strange self that you're used to and amazed by. Okay, maybe not amazed by... perhaps just entertained by. Or at the very least I'll be back to my standard operating level whereby you are continually reassured you could actually have it worse with the partner you have chosen to go through life with.

Every friggin' time I judge someone it comes back on me tenfold. You would think that I would learn to stop judging, but no, I am a stubborn ass.

Chocolate and fiction helps (and heating pads)- I hope you feel better soon.

I've had like two periods in the last five years and both were miserable. Stupid reproductive system. You'll feel better in 5-7 days, though, right?

I'v had my experiences with terrible cramps. So bad that I was curled up in the fetal position telling my husband I thought I needed to go to the hospital. After having two babies I have come to realize that those periods were worse than early labor!!

I hate sneezing for 3 days per month.
