Ready to get personal? My period is painful. It's similar to evil things living inside of me for 5-7 days, once a month. Because shutting out the entire outside world isn't possible I settle by trying to make myself as comfortable as I can. One of my favorite past times that I always make sure to indulge in is curling up on the couch, cuddling with a body pillow that I used throughout both of my pregnancies and try and zone out to the TV. Definitely a show where I don't have to think - like Orange is the New Black or Pretty Little Liars. There may or may not be chocolate involved (there is). Also tea, and candles that smell of yummy foods.
A major part of being comfortable is the confidence in knowing that leakage isn't happening. It's not like your period calls ahead of time and is all, "I'm going to be visiting from the 15th through the 21st so block out that time and go buy some good pads". It's awful when you've finally wiggled into your special, comfy position and you feel like you're leaking. You might not even be leaking, but just the thought of it is enough to have you springing up out of the beloved "period position" to run and check. You know you've been there. Now that I've placed that lovely visual in your head take a sip of tea, calm down and know that there are ways to prevent that. Keeping prepared and being sure that you have top-notch pads on-hand is the first step to feeling relaxed and 100% positive that embarrassing, messy situations won't be happening. Only then can true comfort happen. Wrap around your fave pillow, pop in some sort of intense comedic drama, suck on your chocolate and take a nap. You're safe here.
