If by chance you were blessed not to have had cramps during those menstrual years!! Well you can zip it too!! Because while you breezed along picking flowers, and playing tennis and doing what ever else cramp-less women do once a month, I was writhing around on floor for two decades, from age nine to twenty nine, with not even a prescription Tylenol that could dull the ache!
For the record I never want to hear another woman tell a young person exercise staves off cramps either! Any of us who walked our asses off as teens, played sports, rode bikes, swam and roller skated know that’s a pile of whooie!! Five generation of women in my family suffered with cramps I dare you to call us all liars!! We know “ WHY” they call it “THE CURSE!!
You are not superior because you didn’t have cramps or menopause!! God just has different pain in store for you!! All women should journal through menopause so they can accurately share with their younger meno sisters what to expect!! Women should also write down the real age their children were potty trained. Your child was never potty trained at twelve months old, if they were then you totally forgot that you had to throw out your pissy smelling brown stained couch!!
Empathy people, this world needs more empathy!! For crampy gals, menopausal mamas, and young moms raising babes still in diapers at three…for heaven sakes lets get our facts straight!! If by chance our children were potty trained a bit early, goodie for us, if we have one less (flush or flash whatever you want to call it) than our neighbor, or don’t wake up every night at three, or have never misplaced our keys, let’s not make others feel bad when they suffer!! Let’s work together to care!! You’re not better because you breezed through menopause, you’re lucky….but don’t rub it in!!!
If you still like me after this post, then you either had bad cramps, a crappy labor, or can't find your keys!!
