Having kids has helped. I can drive without going over curbs. My headaches are limited to the first couple days usually. I'm not going into anemia or shock after day three. And the pain only lasts the first day or two. Definitely better than pre-kids. I can focus! Which helps me when I'm in need of my nice attitude.
So what else when I'm bleeding a river? I suddenly crave chocolate. I'm a chocolate lover by nature anyhow, but this is a strong impulse to hunt chocolate down and devour until the end finally comes around. Death by chocolate is mildly describing my desire for it. And what do I find when I go looking around Cartwheels new offers?
20% off Godiva! Seriously?! Add my 15% from employee discount and Redcard and suddenly I want to spend my hard earned money on expensive candy. Whereas I can normally be satisfied with a Hershey bar. Then you have the Little Debbie offers. I still have a manufacturers coupon that I printed way back when.
I don't eat breakfast much anymore. Sleeping an extra 15 minutes tends to win over food. So I instead opt for drinking a shake. I find that the Special K ones are my favorites. Especially when I use my rewards to points to get $1/1 coupons. And then add a new offer of 25% off! Score!!
So here's to my fellow sufferers. Let's divulge in a chocolate splurge. After all, it's what we are accused of anyhow.
Show everyone how to "have a happy period"!
