If you read my article last week about PMS, and you really should, it's a great article, and I need the views, you probably aren't surprised about my topic for this article.

Last week, it was the opening act.

This week, it's the main event.

Are you ready?

Brace yourselves. Because I'm on my period. And I'm a college student. And I am living a nightmare.

I hate that I'm one of those girls that can't function on her period. I really should be used to it by now. But I'm not.

I guess I have an excuse this time. I just started taking birth control on Sunday, which coincided with the start of my menstruation. I love using that word by the way. While birth control is a way of regulating your menstruation, it doesn't happen right away. Unfortunately.

I feel even more lethargic and hungry than I did last month.
