Scene of the Crime

Ironically, I was in the comm last night reading success stories because I had been feeling such cup love. And then this morning happened. (I STILL love my cup regardless of what you're about to read.)

In the early morning hours, my inner thighs felt damp. But sometimes I overheat when I sleep, so it could have been sweat. But it keep bothering me. I touched the dampness and used the light from my cell to see what was going on, but didn't see anything.

I finally get up 30 minutes earlier than usual, and sure enough, my inner thighs are covered in blood. There is blood on the sheets and my hands! This is the first time this has EVER happened in my life regardless of what form of menstrual device I was using!

I got up and hopped in the shower to rinse off, stripped my bed and put the sheets in the washer with cold water. I hope they aren't stained. It wasn't a huge mess on the sheets. Just a rather big spot.

But t was frustrating because thencup was in and hadn't leaked for the hour before I went to bed. And then runs got out of hand.

And already once today I've had spillage going on. I feel like when one thing goes wrong with a cup, the rest of the day will continue to be a mess. You either have perfect days or messy days. I hope to get this cup situation under control before tonight because the bathrooms at my part-time job are AWFUL and disgusting and I can't do cup stuff there. So hopefully my cup and body can agree to work together.

Like I said, I still love my cup. It is so wonderful to have something comfortable and healthy to wear during this time of month. And way more often than not, everything goes off without a hitch.

I would just like to never deal with that big a mess ever again!

I just needed a place to tell this story. Needed some commiseration.
