"It" Came!

Add Video
It came! Without any expectations at all! It was like Christmas this morning! I haven't had my period since the end of December because of my tumor. (I always want to say it: too-maaaa. So, today, I will.) And even then, the docs said it was because my birth control was forcing my body to function that way. So I have been periodless all year up to this point. At first I hated not getting it, especially after I found out it was because I had an abnormal totally idiotic growth in my friggin' brain. But then there was a shift in attitudes and (bam!) it was awesome. I never had my period. I never had my period! Never got cranky or crampy. Never had to worry about it on trips. No extra money on Midol. It was a dream. But, in the back of my head I knew the only reason I wasn't having my period was because of my too-maaaa. So, I guess it wasn't so much in the back of my head. It was the middle, under my brain, behind my eyes sort of area. Hahaha. No period meant bad too-maaa.
But today it is here! Yippee! I've never been so happy to be menstruating. Could they have picked an uglier, more gross word? I don't think so. But today I am in menstrual heaven! I am dancing amidst tampons and pads with wings. I am in a euphoria of tiny cramps and welcome back aches. This is the best period of my life!
It means my tumor is shrinking... or maybe even gone.

Oh, I hope it's gone, Pats. I know what you mean about being excited about it. I haven't really had a period since I had Micah, and I was starting to get really worried. Last month, I finally had one, and what a relief!!

It's funny how one thing can bring someone so much happiness and another misery. I often take for granted this womenly trait because I view it as an inconvenience, and right now a cruel reminder.
Thanks for reminding me to be grateful for what I have and not to dwell on what I don't :)

Ahhh the life of no period...As thoroughly enjoyable as it is to not have it, its funny how relieved and happy it can be to get it at the same time. I can admit I have LOVED my break from having one. I'm nervous for the day it finally returns with full force I'm sure.

I so hope the tumor is shrinking or gone. As for the period, that's great for you. I don't miss those at all. It's great to be period free.
