I know you’re in a bit of a mess at the moment and that me stopping taking the birth control pill has hit you hard.
I understand that perhaps I should have consulted you first before making this big decision for us, but you always behave so unreasonably when you don’t have your friend, the birth control pill, to rely on. So, time and time again I have given in to your tantrums and tears.
But not this time!
You see, this time I understand that in order for us to get properly healthy and well, you, dear hormones, have to learn to work again in harmony and without support. I know it’s not going to be easy, but please know that I am here for you.
And during the tough days, like today, when you are raging out of control and making me feel miserable, I have The Pollyanna Plan to fall back on. I know that these emotions are caused by you – they’re not how I really feel – and with this knowledge, I am able to be strong and positive for the both of us.
I started this letter feeling a bit peeved with you, but I now see that all you need is some love and a dose of Pollyanna’s happy vibes and we’ll both get through this just fine.
Day 295, Reason 295: Today I am incredibly grateful for the realisation that I can think and feel lovingly towards my hormones, no matter how badly they are acting up! 🙂
