I’ve cried a lot the past few days and I’m not exactly sure why. I think it has to do with my period. It started over the weekend and is, of course, heavier than what is considered “normal” for most people. (It’s lighter than what I normally deal with, though.) I started thinking about how every time I have my period, I hurt all over and I cry for days on end. I end up more depressed than usual and start feeling guilty about things that I shouldn’t even feel guilty over.
But I hate the idea that sadness can be hormone-related. I know that they can be, and I know that on Ortho-Tri-Cyclin I wanted to jump off buildings on a pretty regular basis. (That was one of the first medicines I ever took myself off of without doctor approval.) This isn’t that bad, so I guess that’s good. Still, it is absolutely frustrating.
And all of this crying has given me a headache, which sucks a hell of a lot.
