Monthly Dear Period Story

Dear Period,

You make me feel gross. You make me want to lay in bed all day. You make me feel humiliated and give me cramps. You suck. And I don’t feel as confident when your around. And for that, I hate you, cause no one should ever feel like they’re not beautiful. Ever. But you somehow manage to do that. You give me headaches and make my boobs hurt, what kind of person are you? I wish you could just go away forever and never return. Why do you gotta do this to me? What did I ever do to you?!

Sincerely, you did this to me, so f&*k you



Dear Beautiful,

I'm sorry, what is the problem? What is wrong with laying in bed all day? Trust me, there will come a day when you thank me for your much needed rest.

My arrival is a direct challenge to you to become more confident...think about it. A bleeding woman goes about her normal day with cramps, headaches, and most certainly sore boobs, and can still be powerful, beautiful and confident.

For the time being, the hatred and fuck yous are ignored. You will come around and eventually love me.

DP #0016

Dear Period,

8th grade graduation party, we were all outside celebrating and C.W. and I decided to climb the fence of the neighboring park district pool, and jump in fully clothed. The entire class promptly followed us. While sitting in a room waiting for our punishment I got my period in soaking wet white shorts.

Still Embarrassed.

Dear Still Embarrassed,

I think you should be grateful.  This is a life lesson ... don't wear white shorts. Everyone who wears white shorts should be punished.

Your Period Fashionista

Dear Period,

Thank you for making me the woman I am today.  I hate you.  I appreciate the bigger boobs.  Eat that sandwich!

T. A.

Dear T.A.,

You are oh so welcome for the bigger boobs shuga.  Here to help monthly until the day I die.

Ha, ha, ha

Dear Period,

That post stress that you are providing the last two nights that consist of sweating in bed while my mind debates "hmmm maybe I should've worn a pad" or better yet "maybe it isn't over" is simply just wrong.  Maybe I should follow in the footsteps of a new leader and just deny?

Cleavage and elbow sweat



Dear Anonymous,

As in all long term relationships, you should realize that stress is part of the game.  However, I never thought you would be so low as to compare the dynamics of our relationship to the new president.  That's just dirty...I may retaliate next month, just sayin'
