I just got my period. Sitting on the toilet, I looked down in disappointment. Not this month.
I feel like I’m going to be okay. I tell myself “okay, it’s not meant to be, yet”.
But minutes later, I’m crying wondering what I’m doing wrong, what we’re doing wrong… it’s only been two months. Taking the first month when we used condoms into consideration, this is the first three months in more than a decade that I haven’t had any hormonal intervention circulating through my body.
I’m trying to be easy on myself. It doesn’t happen right away for everyone and I never thought it would for us.
