Two good things

1)I had a doctor's appointment a couple of weeks ago, and when the doctor asked what day my last cycle had started, I honestly couldn't remember. Even looking at a calendar I couldn't pin it down precisely. Back when I used 'sposies I usually remembered this stuff by recalling a particularly obnoxious time or place that I had to change my pad or tampon (is that normal?) and the fact that I just empty my cup twice a day in the shower and don't think about my period at all otherwise made it impossible for me to remember.

2)Related to the above, I've had two friends complain about their periods today and I found myself strangely unsympathetic! I realized I don't dread my period or hate having it anymore, and even though I know I used to, I didn't immediately understand why my friend saying her period had started should automatically elicit sympathy from me. That's not to say I didn't sympathize at all! I just didn't immediately recognize "my period started" as a complaint.
