Recently, BuzzFeed published a post I wrote called "The 11 Bloody Awful Stages Of Getting Your Period."

Jaina Sierra of Mexico said: "The "blood moon" can be a good reason to cry, laugh, spoil yourself, get annoyed, tell your boyfriend to go away and at the same time you embrace A L L of it at the same time and blame your hormones."

I couldn't help but feel my heart warmed from hearing that women everywhere of all walks of life have to deal with crappy periods.

Whether it's because their period won't show up, or stays too long — we can all agree, it's bloody awful.

So next time you see a fellow woman and think, I wonder if we have anything in common, think of her ovaries, or lack thereof. And realize, we probably go through the same madness every month and it's kind of beautiful.
