That time of the month. Aunt flo is in town. The crimson wave. The tsunami of immense pain and suffering. There’s probably a hundred ways to say that you have your period. Apart from hot water bottles, netflix and copious amounts of chocolate, the only other thing that can really offer you some relief when you have your period is sister* solidarity. Here are 10 tweets that you can relate to if you’re currently on your period.
1. When you reminisce the good old days.. like last week.

Lets look on the bright side, it only lasts 5 days out of the month. 12 months a year. For about 30 years. That’s approximately 2,000 days of your life that you will bleed from your vagina.. Best of luck.
