Dammit, I thought birth control was supposed to cut *down* on cramps and acne during girlweek! Fuck this shit.

Generally it does, but ever since I broke up with my ex and moved twice in three months I've been getting two periods per month. The stress threw my system waaay out of whack, so now I'm off pills entirely until I can get back into a natural cycle. It sucks ass, but nowhere near as bad as two periods.

My irrational/tearful/bitchy PMT time seems to be growing from a couple of days before, to encompass the whole of girlweek and a few days beyond. I almost begin to wonder whether I'm just depressed...damn (artificial) hormones. Poisoning the little fishes and making me sad.

sorry to interrupt the painful waxing and bleeding segment of the girl thread but here's what happened on my shopping excursion: the damn store was closed, SO i went to a Sears stand-alone that i'd never been in. It was as if the gods of shopping guided me there by my hand.

calculated $170 worth of clothes (4 shirts and a NICE skirt) for just over $23 after tax. HOT. DAMN. i am going back soon.

the other shirt was a black ribbed turtle neck, and the skirt will be modeled at a later date. its calf length, grey w/ VERY MINIMAL black lace detailing along the top.

Yay! I especially love the first one - the buttons and the piping are awesome, and that neckline looks like it will be really flattering...I'm always looking for shirts like that because normal shaped buttoned ones tend to be too small round the boobs and the buttons are always the wrong height, so either the top one that I leave done up is indecently low, or too high and makes my boobs look squished.

I have this issue too but I found a button down shirt at Fashion Bug that has extra fabric in the boob area which makes it really flattering but not indecent for teaching. I get compliments whenever I wear it! Clearly someone at Fashion Bug was thinking when they designed that shirt.

these were all found in the junior department so there is some boob issue, but not enough to be REALLY BAD. a well-placed safety pin will take care of it. but...

there is the usual gap. i cannot buy shirts that fit me properly everywhere because i have such a weird chest to waist to hip ratio. if i can get 2 out of 3 i'm goddamn happy, and this meets 2.5 out of three. the stripped one... HAhah, i'm pretty sure you're supposed to wear a shirt under it, the neckline is scandalous and that top button? no way in *hell*.

A lot of places leave off the top button because of the gaping issue actually. All my button down shirts from Express are really low, but I figured it was so well endowed persons would not have the gaping issue, because it really is a big deal. Looks unprofessional and all that.

As far as I can tell there is no button down shirt that doesn't have the gapping issue. I either wear them unbuttoned over my chest with a tank top underneath or buy them a size bigger and take them in at the waist.

I like the b&w stripy one best. The one you're modeling would look frumpy on most people (imho) but you can pull it off because the tats are quite awesome and most definitely not made of frump.

this creates a problem for me if i wanted to wear a nice button down shirt for an interview or something. because i cant button it all the way up, i have to wear a shirt underneath to cover my tattoos. its not a problem, just bothersome.

I got two completely different results from two different brands.

I also wear boob-smashing tanktops instead of bras a lot of the time, which helps with the button-down-shirt issue, but wouldn't recommend it unless that's already your thing.

Ugh. I had to use a tampon today for the first time in months, ever since I bought my Diva Cup. Nasty, drying, cramping things they are. And how rude of my girlweek to sneak up on me while I was at work. I really should try to keep track of when these things are coming, instead of playing Guess What's PMS every month.

So, hey everyone... I have a concern. I haven't had Shark Week for two months; I'm a virgin, so not pregnant, & I'm not on any sort of pill/other forms of birth control. It's been fairly regular for the three or so years that I've had it now. I've been a vegeterian for a while, and I'm kind of paranoid that lack of girlweek somewhow = iron deficiency and leads to anemia and other crud like that. ):
I was thinking of either meditating or napping, but the way I do it, there's not much difference except in the explanation to the rest of my family.

Have you started any new meds of any kind? You should see your doctor about that asap, they can do a quick blood test which should give you some idea of what's going on.

I have a friend who had issues with that. I think the current theory is thyroid issues. They gave her some hormones to get everything working again, she is the only person I know who was ready to throw a party when girl-week came.

But yea, you should see a doctor because it really could be a whole slew of things.

Lack of girlweek isn't likely to cause a lack of iron deficiency, but it seems reasonable that iron deficiency may cause lack of girlweek.

That's what I get for trying to do something productive when I said I'd be relaxing. :(

In the tub, I realize I should shave. No big deal, a fairly normal realization. So I grab my razor, do my business -- and realize, only belatedly somehow, that my razor was not as sharp as it should have been, and I am razorburned to all hell. :(
