15 thoughts I have on my periods.


Periods are most definitely a dreadful time of the month for any woman, they turn your world upside down and turn you into a monster, and that's if your lucky! Not so long ago I wrote a post on all things period related which you can read here "Unwelcome Visitor"  

This time round I decided to delve into the mind of a woman who's on her periods just about ready to blow... And what better way to write this than whilst I'm on my periods. Yay for me... NOT *cries in the corner* No but seriously, it's horrible.  About a million thoughts race through your mind from the minute you start till after you've finished up. 


1: Is that blood running down my...... YES! Yes it is. 

2: I want a bath but I don't want to sit in a pool of blood so I'll take a shower, but I can't stand because of the cramps so I'll just lay here and cry at not being able to wash.

3: Chocolate.... WERE IS THE GOD DAMN CHOCOLATE *Cries* oh wait, there it is. *happy face*

4: OMFG THE PAIN.... THE FUCKING PAIN. 

5: Okay so is this normal or..... 

6: Far too much blood. Can't handle this. Not amused. I'm definitely a freak of nature.

7: Hungry but don't want food, can't stomach chocolate and have no energy, sleep it is then but I can't sleep because of cramps so I'll cry for half an hour before I decide on eating the chocolate that's right next to me.

8: DO NOT COME NEAR ME MALE, LEAVE ME ALONE. But bring me food and rub my back please. 

9: Does every woman experience this or is it just me? *frantically googles period symptoms

10: CANT TAKE ANY MORE OF THIS. I GIVE UP. IM GOING TO LIVE IN A CAVE

11: Why do my boobs hurt so frikkin much?! I'm bleeding from my vagina, not my tits!!! Get your act together Mother Nature. 

12: Leave me here to die. My bed is a good place for me to pass away. 

13: I'm pretty sure a letter every month to tell me I'm not pregnant would work just as well, if not better, than the lining of my womb shredding itself every god damn month!!!! 

14: Can people tell I'm on my periods? Do they know I'm one stupid comment away from snapping everyone's neck? 

15: Ahhhh it's over..... Nope, wait, it's back *cries for hours over the horrible luck of being a woman

So that's pretty much my experience during my periods. It's horrible. I'm always in pain. I'm always moaning. I'm a cranky as fuck cow. I hate everyone and I black out sometimes. I hate the whole experience, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it.

  1. Lying in my pool of blood bath reading this not knowing whether to laugh or cry at the sad truth of it all! And now I want chocolate more than anything. Followed by sleep. Ice cream. More chocolate.... possibly cake. That's all in the one minute since I started writing this comment! Not even an hour or a day. And this goes on for days! SOS. Send supplies!

    1. I am so glad that someone else feels this! It's such a horrible time of the month and the emotional roller coaster is something else! I hope you're not having too bad a time, stock up on plenty of chocolate and make that hot water bottle your best friend haha.

  2. I'm usually fine once my period starts, it's the days before that really bothers me! My back really starts to ache and my boobs, it hurts like hell too :( I'm actually looking forward to menopause, though I heard that is awful too.

  4. The first day is always the worst after that it gets better. But can totally relate to the chocolate! It only take a word and I flip. Mother nature could honestly have chosen another method to remind us that we are women!

  8. Oh this made me chuckle! I remember this well. I get a contraceptive jab now so my periods are pretty much non existent, but I do get PMT symptoms at the end of every three months. Awful. :/

  9. Haha, yessss!! I have a twin brother and it's hilarious the week before I start my period his friends will complain he's moody. I hate seeing people when I'm on my period, I never know what may come out of my mouth.

    1. Haha so he comes out in sympathy with you, that's brilliant!! I much prefer to curl up and ignore humanity but unfortunately the child has other plans and that seems to be the only time he doesn't want to curl up and watch peppy pig!

  13. Funny post!
    I think its cruel we have to experience it we should just have an on and off switch when we want to be fertile. Blessed i don't suffer too badly

    1. I think that would be an amazing idea! A switch would be sufficient enough!

  14. hahaha I particularly love number 13. A letter would completely suffice. I'm glad I'm not the only one that dives straight for the chocolate. I am so awful to be around too. x

    1. Luckily I don't suffer from the temp change which is a blessing I suppose!

  18. A letter would do, totally hun. Totally.
    I suffered sooooooo badly until I had kids. I would literally be throwing up because of the pain and, no joke, my labour pains were pretty similar to my menstrual cramps. That's how bad they were. Now I have had kids, and a coil fitted, life is soooooooo much beter. I am using the coil as an excuse as to why my backside has terbled in size since this time 2 years ago, not the cake and alcohol, but it's changed my life.

  19. I can definitely relate. In my teens, my periods were hell. Very painful, very heavy and sometimes would arrive when I least expected. I ended up having to leave school early a few times because the pain was so bad. Now, they've been irregular for many years and aren't so bad. #fortheloveofBLOG

  20. I can really relate to this post, as mine came back last month after 20 months of not having them. Then today it came back on my way home from work, thank god it didn't happen at work, as I could barely stand up when I got home. I'm treating these like labour pains, they are soooooo bad! All I wanted to do was curl up and sleep, and eat chocolate, I could barely eat dinner my stomach hurt so much. It's not fair we have to have them. Thanks so much for sharing a second post with us at #fortheloveofBLOG this week. Claire x

  24. I thought this but I published a blog post after going to a red tent (where women go and talk, normally one their periods but anyone can go) and it made me appreciate my period but yeah, fab post!

  25. I can relate to this post on a spiritual level. Periods are honestly one of the WORST parts of being a female ever, outside of becoming pregnant and childbirth.

  30. I can relate. Last year mine were so bad for months on end that I was vomiting with the pain of them. Although they are now better, I now get ovulation pain. What is that about??? #Fridayfrolics

  33. You've absolutely nailed all of these on the head. My body is currently trying to get used to coming off the pill and I've had 2 periods since, one of which is going on right now & im ready to crawl into a dark hole & die. Thankyou so much for sharing this - I needed it! Ellis x
