#PeriodProblems

Four ibuprofen every three and a half hours. I even set my alarm to wake me up in the middle of the night so I wouldn't wake up to PAIN.

Keeping the air conditioner on high so I can use the heating pad while it's in the 90s outside (30s Celsius).

Staying home a lot so I can use my menstrual cup, which I love using, except that I need a real bathroom for emptying it.

Wishing I were a few years older and already in menopause. (In 1979, at age 12, I wished I'd been born a few years earlier so I could have been old enough for discoteques. I still wish I'd been born a few years earlier!)

Sounds really miserable. Here is hoping you feel better soon. And let this be the last one!
