A Period of Pain

Last updated: January 2023

My Biggest Issue

Recently I noticed that I do have a crisis when I am on my period. Like, this happens every month.

This or That

Does your menstrual cycle trigger a crisis?

And the only thing u hear from friends and family is:

Do u take your medication?
Do u sleep under the mosquito net?
Are u taking enough water?
Cover urself to prevent cold!

Tired of Being Tired

All these questions are what get me upset 😡, cause probably that's what I do every day. Sometimes I think all of this is not helping me. The crisis just ends up becoming worse and I just wish 4 death cause am tired 😫
