Oh great, Aunt Flow is coming!



If I only could write my Aunt Flow a letter to tell her how I really feel;

Dear Aunt Flow,
Each and every month I wait and anticipate your arrival. Counting down the days until that dreaded moment, when you first appear. Days before you come I start to prepare, shopping for each and everything I will need while you are here. You always stay way past your welcome. It makes it so hard to plan when you are here, not knowing when you will disappear. Your such an inconvenience, with the disruption you bring. Little things that never bother me are now a monumental nuisance, from the hormonal tizzy you bring on. I'm no longer myself and turn into some crazy eyed witch, taking out my irritability and anger on everyone around me. I've got a headache already and I'm not looking forward to your cramping style. No sex, no thongs just water retention, and temptations of chocolate. Why why why... must you come? I'd find away to get rid of you, but I know that might make things worse!
Seeing how you did provide my three babies, I guess I can put up with you for a few more years. I'm getting older and soon you'll be dead and I can dance on your grave! (or at least I can jump on my menopausal cycle and ride over you!)
Looking and waiting for you ~

  3. You know, it never was a really big deal until I hit 40. Now I'm about the meanest little witch you'll ever meet for a few days a month...then I feel like crap for another week. How is it that basically two weeks a month are ruined for me? I hate it! (And the knowledge that I had five babies still doesn't make it any better!) :)

  4. Aunt Flo sucks... there is no other way to describe her. While she's in town, I literally feel like ripping out my uterus (I know, so vulgar, but my cramps are pretty bad). Hope she comes and leaves quickly!

  5. My hubby thinks the 'Aunt Flow' thing is funny. Seriously, I think if I die after we have a girl, but before she hits puberty, he's going to tell our daughter about Aunt Flow in those terms exactly. "Honey, once a month, you'll be getting a visit from an aunt you've never met before. And she will turn you into a very nasty person, but don't worry, Daddy will still love you."

  6. I often ask the same thing, why? Can't it just stop now, I have had all the kids I want. Whats the point?

  8. Pear asks me all the time if we can just take out all of my plumbing and be done with it. I guess I get a little cranky too.

  9. I'm with Gayle - no issues - EVER until I hit 40. I had the easiest road ever with cycles - no cramps, no bloating, no nithg, 2 days and I wasd done. Now, forget it, I turn into someone I don't even know! Out of no where - I will be ticked off for no reason. I hate it!!!! Pamprin does NOT work. I feel like taking BC again to not have to deal with this utter nonsense!

  15. Your letter is perfect. Aunt Flow has shown up for the first time since conception of my third (and last) child. I swear this is the worst visit in the entire 20yrs she has been visiting me. I think I have offically scared my husband...

  19. You are such a great writer!
    Anyway I may be out of the loop by saying I'm 23 and I love Aunt Flow, for she is the only thing stable in a crazy crazy world.
    Whenever I have an oopsie, she is always there to assure me that It won't be this time that the ovulation begins on my future snot nose kids. So I am free to live another day that is so young, happy and free.
