I want to talk about PMS. Have you heard that everyone has it and it’s a rite of passage. I’m here to tell you that’s WRONG!
I remember my #2 coming home from school and just being an absolute snot then justifying it by saying “I’m on my period”. I quickly responded, “Oh, girlfriend I don’t know who you have been listening to, but we need to talk.”
She was told it was normal to be moody and bitchy around her period by the other girls in the locker room. I’m here to tell you, honey, that’s not normal or healthy nor a requirement of womanhood. These are signals your body is sending stating something is wrong, they need to listen to and corrected not justified as “just my luck, female curse”
So what is a normal cycle? You should be able to look down and say, “Oh, it’s been 28-32 days.” That’s it. no pain, no cramps, no mood changes. Nobody else should know unless you tell them.
However, this is not what is being taught. We have gotten into a world where this pain and emotional angst is labeled as “normal” and it is far from it.
