so.... since i was 13 and started my period, i have NEVER been regular. not even one time. it has always been normal for me to go months on end without a period, and even sometimes a year without one. everyone used to tell me how "lucky" i was because of it, but i would always feel abnormal, as a woman, because mine weren't every month like everyone else's was.
well, here i am....31 years old, and i apparently got my wish. the first time in 18 years, i have had my period twice in a row. last month and like clockwork, this month.
because i am not used to it being "normal" i am of course freaking out, thinking that there is something wrong with me. i have BAD periods as well. this has also been ruled as "normal" for me -- and it seems like all the females on my father's side goes through the same thing. last night, i got all of three hours of sleep, so i know that's also adding on to my anxiety. but still.... i am seeking reassurance right now from other women.
pray that this is over SOON. the cramps are horrible. and i have a fear of meds [even OTC ones] so i do not take anything.
