10 Reasons My Period Makes Me Want To Die

Twenty20 / _bedesign

I have my period right now, and I hate it. I’ve hated it since the moment I first got it at 12 years old. I’m actually still in denial about it. Every time it ends, I feel like it’s the last time I’ll ever see it again.

Yet, like an unwelcome ex-boyfriend, menstruation has made a regular appearance every month for the past 20 years, minus the two years I was pregnant where it was absent (thank goodness).

Without further ado, here 10 reasons my period can go f*ck itself.


1. Going anywhere or doing anything seems impossible.

2. I can’t zip my jeans.

3. No matter what I do, I have stains on my underwear and potentially my pants, so it looks like I pooped on myself.

4. I look pregnant even though I’m clearly not. Hello, I have my period!

5. Whenever anyone says anything to me I want to tell them to f*ck off and die.

6. Period products are utter bullsh*t. Maxi pads feel like adult diapers, tampons are uncomfortable and leak, and I end up losing the reusable products in the chaos that is my apartment. Where the hell is that thing I paid 20 dollars for that’s supposed to save me money?

7. I want to sleep all day, but I can’t.

8. I want to eat everything all the time. And I do. And then I feel like a hot air balloon.

9. I can’t have sex, which solves most problems in life.

10. It makes me feel totally and utterly insane.
