So, according to our boss, we can take our sick/personal days off as “mental health days” if we so choose.
Today, however, I called off for a “menstrual health day.”
OMG. I’ve never had to call off work because of cramps before. When I woke up at 7am this morning, I’d slept for maybe three or four hours, thanks to wracking fists of death in my girlie parts. I was exhausted and still in pain and ended up leaving a voicemail for my boss saying I wouldn’t be in today.
I then proceeded to sleep off and on until 1:00pm. Took some Midol, ate some lunch. I feel *much* better now.
So, I didn’t diabolically plan to have a four-day weekend… but I’ve got one now. w00t?
