Weeks ago I wrote a letter ( this letter for anyone who wants to read it)
and on the 6th of February the blood came. It came and I have never cried over a period before but christ was I near.
The people at the pharmacy, with their quiet tones and soft eyes… are the best people in the world. They saw my young features, the fear in my eyes and they were patient. I was down forty bucks and nothing has been more worth it before.
To C, my lovely boy, who was possibly more relieved than me. Which I didn’t think possible, thank you. For standing by me, for waiting with fear until I told you about the blood, who continued expressing your relief through the week. Who recognized the importance and how happy I was to feel the cramps for the first time since they first came four years ago. I do love you.
