I'm working on a story about maturation education in Utah. I will not make any sex ed comments, I promise.
But I have a district's PowerPoint presentation, which includes a section on cramps, which, incidentally, feel like a dull ache. Do you know what helps with cramps?
- Warm pad (presumably this is a heating pad, not a maxi that's been nuked)
- Warm shower
As much as I love exercise, it doesn't do a thing in this situation except add to the nausea and remind me that I'm fat. (Thanks, hormones! You rock!)
