If you are a woman.

If you are a woman reading this, then hear me.

I got my period.

If you are a woman who has been reading here and concerned about my morose writing, then you can understand that there has been a lightening.

AND, if you are of a certain age, you understand me when I say that I have no tools for predicting this thing anymore, and IT IS MAKING ME INSANE. clearly.


(they were all real emotions but my god, the fucking seriousness of them swamped me. I mean, I literally doubled my antidepressant for a few days- with dr. approval. i fucking wore sweatpants out of the house, y’all. Don’t ask me why I feel this matters so much. I can wear leggings and go braless all the days, but fucking sweatpants?! Holy shit. It was a sign of the end.)

All the issues are still with me, all the worries, the world, the fears, the all of it.

But now I feel like I am just carrying me, the pressure has released.


  • and thats all i have to say about that. (right now i’d punch forest gump in the face if he were here. tom hanks or not. )

  1. OMG – sooo relate to this! I thought I was actually done and made peace with some changes when, 4 months later, it came back. So much pre-menopausal fuckery🙄

Leave me your words! thoughts! sweat, blood, and tears not really needed but okay, if you want... :)
