(Warning to the men: “female issues” ahead)
After several days of dribbling and sputtering, my period has finally opened up the faucet. Today I’ve had the whole gamut of fun: cramping, bloating, gushing, digestive upset, clots the size of my thumb. I’m going through maxipads like crazy. Every time I stand, sit, bend over, clear my throat… I drench another one.
I’m not a big fan of getting older, but I’ll be real glad when I don’t have a period any more.
