So this might seem like a far too "personal" subject for a blog, but its whats on my mind, and I have been slacking in the blogging department this week, so here is my attempt at make-up. So it has been almost 2 and a half YEARS since I had a period. Yes two and a half annuals since I had a full blown, long and drawn out, cramps from hell, diarrhea and indigestion companionship with Aunt Flo. And as bad as it is, I am glad about it.
My body is starting to finally feel like MY body again.
Why has it been so long? Well of course there was the 9 months I was pregnant with Scarlett, and then I went on the Depo Shot, which stops your periods. I was on that for a year, and it took another 8 mos for my body to get it out of its system and start having a cycle again. Waking up with wicked abdominal cramps in the middle of the night, interfering with sleep and comfort had not been missed, but I guess it is just one of those lovely labors of ladyship.
I came across a funny book on my google search for Aunt Flo images, I thought you might find interesting... The link is in the image.In case you can't read it, under the image to the left it says "Aunt Flo, a girl's closest friend... naturally!"
On a similarly related note, I do not appreciate Stayfree changing my feminine product of choice. You women out there probably know, as I do, how difficult it can be to find the product that works just right for you (which can take years to find mind you), and for them to just turn around and change the thing, to where it no longer is the perfect one for you, is just wrong, and should be illegal.
(as my father-in-law says, illegal is a sick bird)
