I do not enjoy being a girl.
When my cycle starts, I get awful pain in my thighs. Along with debilitating cramps. And, if I eat on the first day of my cycle, I will throw up. Usually, my period begins at night, so I’ll know not to eat that day. But, sometimes, it starts mid-morning, after I’ve already eaten. I’m no doctor, but my theory is that my body can’t digest food while it’s making extra prostaglandins.
I have taken 6 aleve on a mostly empty stomach today.
I’m in bed, praying for the pain to leave my body. At least, my periods only last 3 days, and the first day is always the worst. So, at least I know it’s almost over.
