maybe I’m finally learning things I should have learned many years ago

If you regret some of the decisions you made in the past,
don’t be so hard on yourself.
At that time, you did your best with the knowledge that you had.
At that time, you did your best with the experience that you had.
Some of your decisions might have been coping skills and a time when you didn’t know what you know today.
If you were to make those decisions with the wisdom you have now, you would choose differently.
So give yourself a break and forgive yourself.
Time and experience has a wonderful way
to make us realize that we prosper,
grow and learn to make better choices today,
for ourselves and those we care for.

Note to self: every time you were convinced you couldn’t go on, you did.

Period basics: caring for yourself when you’re on your period
Unfortunately, cramps are really common, especially in the first few years since your first period. But, here’s the good news! There are many simple things you can do that may make you feel better:
Help!  My periods are making me very uncomfortable!  What can I do?
You may find that getting more exercise, taking a hot bath or using a heating pad can help relieve your cramps.
Consider talking to your health care provider about what over-the-counter painkillers might work for you
Many people find that getting lots of rest is super helpful! Maybe take a day off work, school or whatever your daily activities are to lie down, watch your favorite show, and take naps
Some forms of hormonal birth control can lessen the pain you experience during your period. Talk to a clinician or doctor about it!
Orgasms can also be a great remedy for pain! If you’re doing this with a partner, remember to still use protection. It can be possible to get pregnant while on your period.
If your pain is making your feel faint, or more than you can bear, talk to your health care provider.
 I heard there are ways to control my period or not have a period at all. Is that true?
Hormonal forms of birth control such as the pill, the patch or the ring can help you to control when your period comes and how much of a flow you have.
These methods can also be used to skip your period once you have been using them for three months. Talk to your health care provider for more information.
Some people who use the injection or the hormonal IUD get their periods less often or stop getting them all together.
