Here, let me take care of that for ya -- I never said all that mutual sympathy circle-jerking was justified, after all. Really I've known very few women whose periods were horrific enough to really wow me. It tends to strike me as a sort of "my period can beat up your period" vibe.
But who am I to talk, as noted my period is pretty mild-mannered. No wonder it took me forever to get knocked up the first time.
Eh, if they want sympathy then more power to them. It is the stupid questions they ask to get sympathy without just asking for sympathy that bug me.
If Nacho posted, "I just got whacked in the nuts, help me out bro." We'd all be in with the sympathy, but if he posted, "So, yeah, when you guys get kicked in the dick does it hurt?" We'd think he was crazy as shit.
Just say, "My TotM sucks, sympathy please." Posting asking about food cravings just makes you (not you you obviously) look like a moron. I'd pay top dollar for the women-folk on the forum all to respond with "No, we never crave anything. You are just fail as a person. Go hang your head in shame or just hang yourself."
It only took about a week to break the habit, but I got about $400 or $500 which I spent on myself. Win! For me.
Now, I don't have cravings. Seriously, PB has killed them. At worst, I get a yen for chocolate ice cream and one bite in, I'm good. I wish my cycles were more like Jenny's. I think everyone in my life would be happier. Actually, I do crave sex more and have been known to rape unsuspecting men.
If I don't at least drop f*ck 5-10 times a day, something is wrong.

Can't argue with results. >:D And he was the one who suggested it. Really, the way it completely interrupted his train of thought when I'd just hold my hand out for money was what helped.
It was all altruistic on my part, I swear. And altruistically, those super-expensive sheets of dichroic glass I bought myself for art projects... yep, it was all for HIS good.
