    I survived karate training on my first day of period... I'm a boss, ha ha. It actually didn't hurt at all. The movement stopped the cramping. I was afraid I'd die. This is what they always told me. Maybe it's happiness that makes pain disappear? :slight_smile: I had real bad cramps today!

    It reminds me of when I have mine and pretend that there are no practical or mental consequences. I pretend to be ok even with anger/sadness pre-period. I make even more sport/movement than without it, in order to compensate, and end up with stains on trousers because I change pads the less frequent possible (oops).
    The period can touch my body, but not my soul u.u At most it will touch my... trousers, LOL.
    Oh, and when I check that the pad is in place, I end up making the movements of rearranging a crotch. It's unvoluntary, I swear xD

    Exactly!

    I have to say I no longer care. I don't even know if I have mood swings or not. Certainly, I have things than can make me feel more happy or down than my hormone swings.

    But really. Something bad was supposed to happen if I excersice on a bad cramping day. Nothing happened. Not only it didn't hurt more, the pain disappeared! I smell some heavy BS round here, and the awful gender rolls that went off a century ago...

    This Friday I will go with my sister to buy some femme clothes. I haven't felt really great these days to be honest but I hope that getting some cute clothes can make me feel good or at least cheer my mood up a little bit.

    had a fantastic meeting with my counselor this morning, wore my wig, and breast forms, along with some lipstick, i felt so great, she gushed that i looked great. it was so affirming. too bad this was our last meeting as she is going on maternity leave in a couple weeks.

    There is a MtF student in my school now and I think she came out because of me. The counselor once told me that the day after I came out she spilled her guts to every one. Also, she's changed her name in the system and the school recognizes it.

    And my students like me this year. Again. Even ones everyone says is a trouble maker.

    My theater teacher used he/him pronouns for me today, and I've never told anyone specific pronouns to use for me as I just avoid conversation on gender altogether to avoid saying anything I'll regret. It just made me really happy that without having to have that conversation, she used the pronouns I secretly prefer. I usually just leave people wondering what to call me as I avoid any and all specifications of my gender/pronouns if I can, because I'm not ready to be out but I also really can't tell people to use female pronouns/my birth name. So, I just avoid it altogether and leave people guessing
