I remember the presentation on puberty and the female body that I saw at school and I remember thinking “my body is going to do what once a month?” I remember feeling like it was something my mother should have been teaching me and not my PE teacher. The animations honestly made me feel a bit sick.
When I got my first monthly visitor, I was at school. I was embarrassed and hated my body for what it was doing. I went to the nurse who unfortunately was male and since my mom was at work, I had to ask my grandfather to bring me a change of clothes.
As years went by, I was more accepting of my body and its natural processes. But I started dealing with the pains. I was accustomed to the bloating, cramps, and mood swings but as I got older and my “girls” got bigger, they started to hurt too.
As a blogger, business owner, and 2nd mom to my siblings, I don’t have time to deal with girl problems. I can’t stay hunched over in bed all day because of the pain and hugs from my baby brother shouldn’t hurt. I thought I was the only one experiencing this, but I was wrong. There are others out there.
Recently, I discovered Violet. Violet iodine is a molecular iodine supplement that, when taken daily, alleviates the most common symptoms of premenstrual breast discomfort, including swelling, tenderness, aches and heaviness and it promotes optimal breast health. Visit VioletDaily.com for more information.
Over the next 30 days, I will be taking the daily supplement in hopes of getting relief. I’m kind of excited to try it because I’m so ready to say goodbye to boob pain. Because #HugsShouldntHurt!
