in the flo.
swollen. crampy. soooooooooo tired.
my silhouette changes. i've never been oklahoma, but i become kentucky.
strangely, i've sort of grown to like it though. for reasons beyond the obvious:
1. i'm not pregnant!
2. i'm not menopausal!
3. i'm not dead!
i like these first couple of days of my period because i find i cannot be bothered. my standard reaction to all things on days like today can be summed up in one word:
things that would otherwise annoy me don't, or if they do, i break down and weep unabashedly and feel absolutely no regret or shame for doing so. it's not emotional detachment; i still feel, i just do so sans judgment.
i'm such a pathetic, weepy baby.
i'm a weepy baby. i need more tissues, please, and chocolate.
sorry, i'm such a bitch. sorry, sorry, sorry.
wow, i'm a snarky bitch. this can be fun!
the feelings, well, they just sort of wash over me and fade away into to an ibuprofen-induced calm...until the elephant stomps across the tundra of my uterus again.
