Today's a day where being a woman just isn't meshing with me. Of course, I wouldn't trade it for the world but cramps are no joke when they're bad. I used to have a blog titled "The Crimson Clock" and it was all about womens' troubles but I couldn't keep up with it, so it's on hiatus for now.
Some women are lucky enough to never really go through this pain and some have it worse then me. Some have to stay home because it's impossible to move. I was almost at this point today at work. I was at the point where I felt like I couldn't see straight, stand up straight and at the verge of tears. It was horrible!
Luckily I took three ibuprofen, drank some tea and read some horror and funny stories online about how women deal with menstrual cramps at work. I love the internet! You can always find a thread where there's this huge sense of community. People genuinely offer advice and discuss their experiences because they want to find or help others who are going through the same things.
I can't wait until this passes. Until then, it's day by day, tea, baths and heating pads.
