Another thing we don’t like talking about: Periods, PMS, Menopause.
What did I do differently this past month? Normally getting my period means pain. I get cramps and swell up and often think I’m dying when I am simply going through the change my body has gone through since puberty about 38 years ago.
Yes, I am that old. Old enough to have beat cancer and old enough to have a doctor try to sell me a hysterectomy and old enough to approach those menopause years we dread.
And I would think that what I did this past month was a fluke, but it has happened before. Over and over again when I do these simple life changes I feel great and find relief from pain, boating, headaches, and fatigue.
