Bloody Hell



I am in Arizona and currently holed up in my beautiful resort  while it is sunny and perfect hiking temperature outside. Why? Because this period is one for the books. I have gone through three Instead cups since 4 a.m. (had to wake up at the ass crack for my flight.) I am painfully bloated. My uterus feels like it is preparing to blast off through the top of my head. My legs and bum muscles are super achy. I am, to put it mildly, a bloody mess.

This sucks. I so hope feel better tomorrow. I really want to enjoy this trip and get to take at least one, if not two, hikes. Now if you will excuse me, I am going to go pout and feel sorry for myself.

Cheerier post tomorrow, I promise.

NOTE: For the record, if you accidentally drop an Instead cup into a public toilet and then the automatic flusher sucks it down before you can do anything about it the bathroom police will not come after you, the toilet will not launch it back at you, nor will the  cup resurface instantly after the next woman enters the stall. What happens after her flush, I can’t say as I *might* have high-tailed it out of there.

    So sorry to hear this. Totally understand. I pretty much lost an entire weekend, and all the things I wanted to accomplish, right along with it. Does the resort have a mini-bar at least? Hang in there…

    I definitely giggled at the end, about the Instead cups.

    I love your blog, I’ll definitely be stalking!

    Oh, that’s awful about dropping it into the toilet. I’m always afraid I’m going to do that. I’m so sorry that the automatic flusher got it!

    I’m so sorry, too, that you’re stuck in your hotel with an awful period. I hope it lets up for you soon!

    UGH sweetie I hope you feel better soon. AF after a cycle were always the worst ones for me. Maybe a warm bath will help? Take care. (((HUGS)))

    Hi from ICLW!

    You poor thing. I definitely hope you are feeling better tomorrow. You are awesome in that despite your bloaty, bloody, suckieness, you managed to crack me up with your note about flushing your Instead cup. Take care!

      Thanks Amy! I am always happy that my misadventures entertain others. Always gotta find the silver lining to flushing an Instead cup 🙂

    I’m so bummed I didn’t go to AZ for Thanksgiving if only for the fact we could of hung out. (I’m from Phoenix…)

    Hang in there, big kisses!

      That would be been so great! I’ll give you advanced warning the next time we are headed out here and maybe we can arrange a rendezvous!

    Sorry you’re so miserable! Wish I had some more words of comfort for you.

    I’m headed out to Arizona tonight. Hopefully the weather isn’t too bad.

      Thanks Trisha! The weather in the Phoenix area is quite lovely, actually!
