I’m sorry

For how I looked

When I had cramps.

It was not my best day.

Actually, it was my worst day.

Until next month anyway.

Mom didn’t warn me

That there would be days like this

For the next few decades.

Perhaps she knew

Intuitively

That it wouldn’t be good for our relationship

Or her safety.

Smart, that lady.


These illustrations help me laugh at my pain.

    I’m so sorry! It’s a pain, for sure. My mom, or doctor, didn’t prepare me for the reality of life after hysterectomy, and I find myself wistfully thinking of the period days and wishing I could go back in time. Women’s bodies are ridiculous! No wonder so many become addicted to pain meds….
