I've had a period since I was 13 years old. And five years ago, I was diagnosed with endometriosis. So my period causes me a lot of pain. It greatly affects my moods. And it comes back EVERY MONTH!
To break it down, for 10 years I've gotten my period 12 times a year, and sometimes even more than that if my body is feeling generous. That's approximately 1,000 days that I have been on my period in my lifetime SO FAR. It's the longest (and hardest) relationship I've ever had.
It's safe to say that it's a pretty big part of my life. But I don't really talk about it unless I'm surrounded by my (female) friends.
