-When I told the army doctor that sometimes my period pains make me unable to function for days, he didn’t even write that down.
-When I told my dad “don’t touch me, I’m in pain” he backed down for a moment until my mom told him “she’s on her period”. Then he just laughed.
-When I told my teacher before a big test that I was unable to do it because I was in extreme pain and could barely move at all, she said I was making up excuses and that it wasn’t a real reason not to do the test. 
-Wenever I tell someone about how different I feel during my period emotionally they say I’m just “making up drama”. 

We need to start treating people on their periods like actual human beings in pain. 




-The fact that it occurs monthly doesn’t make the pain less real. It should be treated seriously and with respect.
-The fact that the hormones effect the emotions doesn’t make your sadness less painful or the anger less valid or that terrible feeling of being lost less terrifying. Guess what? Hormones affect everyone. Feelings aren’t always rational. It should be also treated seriously and with respect.

Please stop mocking people with periods. Please stop dismissing us. Please stop violating our boundries. Please respect people with periods.
