I have been stuck in menstruation purgatory for three full days. It is awful. I have the whole battery of PMS symptoms — headache, sore breasts, cramping, fatigue, bloating, moodiness — but usually this lasts one day, and I am now on day four.
Oh, and I am spotting. Just enough to make me think the end is near, and then stopping to demonstrate that it is not.
I have never wanted my period to start more than I do right now. I am tired of the PMS and I am tired of waiting for a new cycle. I am also really craving carbohydrates, which are a no-no for at least another week.
I have lost five pounds, however.
3:11PM: HALLELUJAH!!!!!!! I have never been so glad to need a maxi pad. The trick to getting your period to start? Wear white/light khaki pants. That’ll do it every time.
