Just come out of a mental health crisis. I’ve not been to work for a week, I’ve only just got out of bed, and I’m struggling to interact with people. I started my period 6 days ago and it sent me into a tailspin. I don’t really know why it’s affected me so badly this time – it’s not like I’m not used to them. I guess being the first one since I came out has just reinforced how unnatural it feels for me and how distressing that aspect of my biology is to me. One thing I’ve realised is that I haven’t got another two to three years of this in me – I’ve got to get a bridging prescription sorted and quickly – I need these shenanigans to end.
