In case no one told you this today:
You are beautiful.
You are strong.
You are important.
You have a nice butt.
You look awesome.
I am me and it’s all I’ll have for the rest of my live. And it’s enough.
U go! You are so precious! Everyone is!
You are strong and you can kick some ass!
MOMMA WILL GIVE ADVICE.
ALWAYS REMEMBER: MENSTRUATING DOES NOT MAKE YOU BAD. IT DOES NOT MEAN YOU ARE SICK. IT DOES NOT MEAN YOU ARE DIRTY.
First of all, do not go swimming in the ocean to look for Momma.
Momma will be right here.
Momma suggests that at first sign of blood, take tylenol. If you are super in tune with your body, take it when you estimate it will start soon!
Momma knows EXACTLY what to do for cramps. Eating cranberries or drinking their juice is a wonderful way to get rid of cramps.
Another way to help with the pain is to rest on your bed like in the picture, butt in the air and head on the ground.
Also, if you do not like pads OR tampons, there are more solutions!
They are very similar to one another. They are basically soft, silicone cups that go up into your lady cave that collect the blood.The softcup is a bit more expensive.
Also, Momma says that if you want to have sex and not have gushing everywhere, you can use a softcup!
The mooncup is a lot like the softcup, but it is reusable. Momma will remind you that you MUST disinfect it in boiling water.
You can even use natural sea sponge like a tampon!
Momma says it’s okay.
There are also cotton reusable pads!
Momma is also thinking of you men that have periods, too!
There is a special kind of boxers that you can buy with a special pocket for sanitary products! It also comes with a bulge.
The most important thing to do, menstruating or not, is to love and respect yourself. Do not feel ashamed, and get through it as well as you can!
Momma loves you!
Thank you momma.
I imagine Momma having a really typical haggard old smoker’s voiceMOMMA’S ON MY OWN DASH WHAT THE HECKLE
WAIT HOLD THE PHONE THERE ARE OPTIONS OUTSIDE OF PADS AND TAMPONS???
This person is beautiful.
a little comic dedicated to a friend
I needed this really bad. thank you.
I’m literally crying. This is so important.
I completely understand that I posted this photo a looooonnnnnggg time ago, but I just have to say a few things.
• I don’t care if you’ve done one, all, or maybe even none of these things, if you fucking need someone, I’ll be here.
• I don’t want nor like to see people brush this shit off as if it’s nothing. It’s a huge fucking deal. One event can alter a life forever, a lot can happen in a second, minute, hour, etc.
• The original post currently has over a fucking 14,000 notes.
• If you’ve dealt with any of this and made it through, let people know! One story is enough to give a person the hope that they need to pull their life around. SHARE.
Most importantly, keep your head up. No one’s ever gonna be you.
