I’M HORMONAL RIGHT NOW AND I CAN’T HELP IT

Yesterday, I was just not myself. I’m usually very goofy, upbeat, happy, energized, and very open. But yesterday, I was quiet, reserved, subdued, and almost numb. Yesterday also happened to be my late mother’s birthday, and I wondered if I was feeling blue because of that (she passed in 2017). But I’m still feeling rather blue today, and my menstrual calendar tells me that my feeling-like-shit-feelings are happening for a reason. Yep. It’s a week before my period.

LISTENING TO YOUR BODY, FOR REAL

I was born with the ability to astutely feel and recognize most physical sensations in my body, as they are happening. Perhaps I have just always paid closer attention to my bodily tremors compared to most others. Or maybe I’m not special in this respect, and I’m just a borderline hypochondriac (isn’t everyone?). But as … Continue reading LISTENING TO YOUR BODY, FOR REAL
