I feel so yucky. My face feels swollen, I'm having random back pains, I'm incredibly sleepy and my lunch was disgusting. I'm also thirsty but I don't want to go buy water, although I should because despite feeling puffy, I think I'm dehydrated.
We're supposed to go out with Brent's friend's tonight. I have no idea what the plans are other than "pre-drinking and BBQ" at his place. I am SO not in the mood for drinking but I know that we have no food at home so if I opt out, I will likely starve to death.
I keep meaning to make a post about the Diva Cup...I'm pretty unmotivated. I'll just make it point form and you let me know if you need me to expand on something.
It doesn't leave my vag. feeling all raw and dried out by the end of my period like tampons do.
No waste (other than original packaging)
Comes with carrying bag and fashion pin
Don't need to empty it as often as I need to change tampons
Super-Low risk of TSS
Takes a few turns to figure out how to get it at the right angle to prevent leakage
Rides up if I leave it without out tugging it down a little for too long (ie 5 hours) causing leakage and difficulty removing
Takes longer to remover, empty, clean and insert than changing tampons (although I imagine with practise the whole process will go faster)
All in all, I think it's definitely worth it and the benefits will make me happier over time. I would reccommend it to anyone who menstruates.
