Today I read and comment on the Guardian’s Article

‘My mother announced that I had become a woman’: why conversations about menstruation are so important:” by @Rachel Kauder Nalebuff

Now the commentary on the article, my mother announced that I become a woman. My conversations about menstruation are so important by Rachel counter Naboth. I say something, I rarely give an A. But I'm going to give an A. And the reason I'm going to give an A is is because she really hit especially with her stories. She hit the menstruation conversation, the period of poverty conversation. from every direction. I would go for an A plus, if she could have divined the fact that there are ways to relieve period pain and PMS, but at no point in her article, does she allude to the burden the pain of menstruation itself. She talks about the inconvenience, but she doesn't talk about the the actual discomfort and how far the consequences can affect manipulators in terms of real time in pain and PMS. But then years later in the form of fertility issues, and then decades later in the form of cardiovascular stroke, and the myriad other problems that are being traced back to irregular cycles, and menstrual disorder diagnoses during this reading years. And so because she's so far from that, what she's not doing the converse of her not discussing any part of it is that she's also not proliferating the conversation that the industry messaging of suffering and comfort. She's not giving voice to the discomfort part and, and I appreciate that, because most of the time when that conversation is brought up, the problem is always discussed. And the solution is to lead it. And that's not a solution. And so because we never go there, I'm really, really, really happy. And I also have to say it's mildly emotion, it's emotionally charged this a because it means so much to me that people are willing to discuss menstruation, I was recently turned down for a to do a talk, I was told by the organization that they feared a conversation about menstruation would be too uncomfortable for their audience. And that their audience isn't ready for the conversation. And it broke my heart because it's happening. menstruation is happening. And to say that we're not ready to talk about it. When will you be ready. I think people are dying to hear about it, people are dying to be heard. And the more we talk about it, the more opportunities we also have for my mission, which is to amplify the fact that there is solution. And so this article is extremely meaningful, because it's saying it's okay, nobody's dying, because we're talking about a fact of life. And the variety of writers that she includes, and this is only a sneak peek of her book. It's so exciting. And the perspectives are so brilliant. Because it's fun, it's scary. It's terrifying. And it's awesome. And it's true in all of the ways. I remember faking, I didn't get my period until I was a sophomore in high school. And in middle school, I would actually have tampons fall out of my bookbag out of the area where my pencils and pens were so that people can see that I had them so that it would look like I had my period because I felt so abnormal for not having my period at the time that everybody else seemed to be getting there as in seventh and eighth grade. And so I really like how onpoint these stories are. And I appreciate the opportunity for connection. And I also remember reading, Edith, Dr. Edith Eggers is Article I mean book choice. And she talked about when she told her mother that she got her period, her mother smacked her across the face. She's Hungarian and that is what is done. What was done in I would guess, the late I mean, the early 20th century because Dr. Eggers is now in her 90s. us so it could even be the late if she's in her 90s. Yeah, early 20th century. And so yeah, I don't have a lot to say here. This is a really, this is a very important book. And this article is a really great sneak peek into how transformative, how positive, how uplifting, how beautiful, how full of grace, the menstruation conversation can be. And just as I tell my clients, when you're shutting when you're in the time of menstrual shedding, allow your sadness, your misfortunes, the things that you no longer wish to hold in your being emotionally or mentally or spiritually allow those to flow on, into flow out of you on the river of your menstrual shedding. This is a lovely flow that can carry the conversation. And if you feel fear, to approach a conversation about menstruation there are more and more opportunities showing up for you. You don't have to feel afraid anymore. And of course if there's anything I can do to help start that conversation, it would be my honor and my pleasure. So I'll end it there. I wish you joy, ease space and Grace
