Your Period As Seen Through Leslie Knope

"I am a goddess, a glorious, female warrior!"

Posted on

You start the week off with all the confidence in the world.

You WILL beat this period.

You're so hecking ready.

Day one arrives and you're still looking fierce.

Via pinterest.com

No breakouts in sight.

All of a sudden, you feel a bit...Off.

Via giphy.com

Those cramps creep up only to remind you of your monthly visitor who has been hanging around every month since you turned 12.

Via giphy.com

Ah, womanhood.

And then it hits. Hard.

Via giphy.com

You try and stay positive.

Via giphy.com

But you just can't.

Via giphy.com

You tell your best friend in great detail how "this is your worst one ever" and instantly regret it.

Via giphy.com

You're "friend" claims that exercise will help the pain, but you both know you don't partake in such grotesque activities. Thus, you find an alternative.

Via giphy.com

Your tastebuds get all weird.

Via giphy.com

And every time you go to the bathroom you are still shook.

How do I period so hard?

For real though. You've been through this for so long and yet things still surprise you.

Via giphy.com

At this point in your cycle, you're feeling...

Via giphy.com

I know, shocking.

And the ONLY way you feel as though you can continue on living is through food.

Via giphy.com

Go ahead, you deserve it.

For real though, this feels like a monthly death sentence.

Slowly, it all begins to settle down.

And then, just like magic, it's gone.

Only to return 3-4 weeks later.
