For years, I had the worst periods of almost anyone I knew. Debilitating pain. Overwhelmingly heavy flow. Wild mood swings that threatened to end my relationships.
I would have to stay home from school, work, cancel all my plans – or if I couldn’t cancel, I would have to basically OD on over-the-counter pain drugs (sorry kidneys and liver) and wrap myself in heating pads just to get through.
And then there was the fatigue. *Especially* if I had pushed through those first couple days of hell, I would be so exhausted I’d end up calling in sick later in the week.
If I knew you well, I would tell you the truth. If I didn’t, I would lie and say I was sick. Either way, I felt ashamed and like my body was NOT my friend.
I got tested for All The Things™ and the doctors told me there was nothing wrong with me. They put me on birth control and that helped regulate things, until the side effects got so bad I couldn’t stand them anymore. So, I went back on my own natural roller coaster. Whee.
I didn’t know it could be any different (my sister had it worse so I actually felt lucky, if you can believe that). I didn’t consider that my period was another “vital sign” of my overall health. I didn’t know that there was anything I could do to feel better, other than symptom relief in the moment.
I have WAY easier periods these days, and when my symptoms get bad again (hello, mold illness), I know how to feel better immediately. I’ve been helping my 1:1 clients with their periods for the last 5 years, including debilitating cramps, super-heavy bleeding, PMS/PMDD, infertility and post-partum depression, and I decided to put everything I’ve learned into this program!
