The flu and my period AT THE SAME TIME: I middle finger whoever came up with this idea!
I am coming up with a rule that I’m going to present to the Goddess Above saying:
It is strictly forbidden for any woman to have the flu and her period at the same time. It is unfair to her sense of womanhood to be bombarded with the flu bug (whatever the hell it is this year) and her normal menstrual cycle, that can already make her feel like she’s been hit by a MAC truck. Women everywhere deserve more consideration for how crappy, achy and vulnerable they can feel at any one time.
