@Amardine i have a history of yeasty problems and the cup took some adapting, figuring out how often to change and being really careful about how i cleaned it — i was getting a lot of general yeasty discomfort for awhile. but i also changed soaps, which i think was more the issue.
@quadrophenia me too. that's actually why i had to start using the diva cup, there was just too much damn blood. but i'm still keeping it!
copper lovin' ladies -- how long did it take your body to somewhat normalize? i've had mine for a little over six months and i feel like i'm still cramping at least 2/3 of the month :(
"You can’t just always ask people questions you want their answers to!" Yes. I always forget this. Textssss ugh
this is. my. life.
This is just really hilariously ridiculous if you DO speak French.
YES survival books!! Z for Zachariah anyone? I think it's the reason I continue to have apocalyptic dreams to this day
@Linette Well, when you put it that way.
@Danzig! this happened to me last week, where i got broken up with by my boyfriend of x years and tried desperately to reach my friend with 3 calls, a voicemail and a text. i was convinced she hated me and just didn't want to hear my shit. turns out she was in a part of her building that gets no service and she didn't receive any of it. when are we going to get cell phones to work all the time so that these weird social in betweens don't happen?
good luck & don't give up on her yet.
@geekspice agreed, i don't know if i just read too much dear prudence (she's ALWAYS suggesting that people who have suddenly developed strong, offensive opinions have developed some mental condition) but that was my first thought! in any case, worth thinking about if there are any other related signs.
@Mame Dennis-Pickett-Burnside i have this problem too! i have been so pleasantly surprised by people being earnest with me that i decided to become more earnest; but then it felt out of place in the sarcastic social world i operate in, so i hedged back gradually to way too much sarcasm, and now i just fluctuate uncomfortably between these two poles: earnest naked heart, bitter snappy sass-afrass.
