"Things that we were grateful for by the way there are many types of special rituals that make up a moon ceremony depending on the ancestral traditions of the minister at i eat his daughters moon ceremony. The group eight cacao beans which is the plant that chocolate comes from. They betas daughter with flower water. Guess pinta flower onto her hair on her clothes. And then it was time to pass down wisdom. We went around and we each gave her different bits of advice. Some people sang. Some people wrote her things. Some people were funny and it was all done with so much love and so much sweetness. There's a lot of times if people were crying. There is one ritual on my daughter's moon ceremony. That was i. Think the most powerful thing and i think it's the most powerful ritual in in the book as well and that is when you take menstrual blood and you feed it to the earth and so my daughter did that. I collected her stained underwear from the hamper. And i cut the actual bloodied pieces of it. And i asked her to wash it in a basin of of blessed flower water and then she dug a hole with her hand inside the earth and she poured that water with prayer into the earth. I told me that this blood giving ritual is really intended to help the men's trader. Renew their connection to the earth. You know from an outsider's perspective. Somebody who doesn't wanna touch their menstrual blood from you know the negative narrative that we have against ministration. This is something of disgust or or you know unheard of but when you have a relationship to your body. Your blood is as essential as your skin as your breath as your tears. Moon ceremony for his daughter was really significant for the both of them. But it wasn't so easy for sally in the moon within. That's because sally and her mom meema have different ideas about what's important me must really trying to reclaim ancestral traditions. And celie is not along for the ride at all. She respects her mother but she feels like her. Mother doesn't see her doesn't understand how embarrassing it would be if she were to have a ceremony in half to divulge her personal information in front of everybody and meema thinks it's just the most beautiful thing she doesn't shy away from being proud about being chief on feminist who is reclaiming her indigenous cultures but celie is very very shy as she bites her nails. She thinks that It's nobody's business. What happens to her body. One of our favorite parts of the book is after the moon ceremony when sally reflects on how she feels midnight light. It is nearly midnight when i come in from the garden and settle into bed. I try not to wake juju. My skin still tingles the stories and advice every woman shared with me about their moons about being a woman. Stir in my mind secrets that could only have been given to me now after my own they fill my lock. It and i feel it overflow. I opened my jar of moonbeam water. Take a sip. And i noticed luna's rays have followed me in the middle of the room. We fluttered together my arms outstretched longer now and wing. I looked into the beautiful dark and sway with luna's moonbeams as we dance into the night daughter was eleven when she first started her period. The same major sally. Now she's fourteen aida says the moon within is a gift to her and in many ways for the rest of us. The craziest thing is that every single human on this planet came from administrator.

I would love to be able to devote that brain space to something else. Because it's exhausting. And it has nothing to do with like who I want to be as a person or the things that I strive for.

And the first one that I did I had throughout because I didn't do it right. She said getting usurp period felt like being fourteen again except her flow is different the bleeding lasted for a full week, which is something that never happened to me before in my life, it was heavy for two days and light for several after that, and that was really new for me. I was like always a three day period person but I was just like really feeling like excited in crazy about the period thing and I will you I was ravenous in a way that I had not felt in years. You would guess that that might be scary for me but it was actually really nice. I woke up and I was like, where's the chocolate and I distinctly remember when I was in high school my cravings were chocolate and the greasy food like fries and stuff and I totally felt that way again and it was like holy crap like this me like this is the food that I like to eat and I feel good wanting in like I felt.

"Once acquainted yourself with the controls you start the game and you just see a girl running on the left hand of the screen and she's got. Her hair down I think she was a Bo a pink bow in her hair and she's wearing a pink. And she's running you see these people run across the screen towards her and or to defend yourself, you start off with five tampons. So when you throw a Tampon hits one of your enemies they disappear and improve your score. But when you run out of Tampons, luckily, there are floating tampon boxes in the sky, their blue and yellow, and they blink and as they come across towards you in the screen to jump in order to get them that jump that was the hardest part of the game to code from scratch here's Sophie. I. Remember. Coming in the day was supposed to do it being ideal. Yeah. It's going to be done by lunch. Not a big deal like this little character just has to go up and back down like what's the big deal? And for hours I would press up key and this little character would not go up and back down and it was so frustrating. Selfie was new to coding. She thought about asking for help but she knew she wanted to get this done on her own. That day she spent eight hours trying to figure it out. I remember being on my bike biking home and kind of having this Hamam where I realized. That she had been doing it the whole time I just had been able to see it so. You know a computer is works very quickly when you give it the right instructions and so. She had been jumping the whole time and I came in the next morning and I remember like I made some quick fixes and like watch this tiny character jumped and it was such a satisfying feeling I felt so accomplished and. Like very powerful. In just ten days Tampon run was born. At the time and even now. I mean I'm I'm proud that. We got to build something from nothing. That's always really incredible. Feeling when you start with just an idea and you start with a especially encoding start with just a blank white screen basically. And then to build it up slowly and slowly you know. You have the street view and then you have the girl running and then you have the go jumping and then she's throwing tampons and. Then, at the end, you have a full working game that you can actually play yourself when you can interact with that really made me feel proud and still makes me feel proud. When Andy and Sophie finished camp they thought their work was done. They went back to school. Sophie was starting her senior year of high school..

"In Fifth Grade, we had our health costs where we learn about periods and it started with our health teacher, making everybody chant period, and the lesson wouldn't start until every student was chanting, so she wrote period enormous across the board, and then we all like period period period. Welcome, to feeling my flow I'm communiqu ashani pronounce. Are She and her? And this is the podcast where we wake up shouting period every morning period period period period period period period. Et, well, maybe not every morning, but you know we do say that word a lot around here and in this episode. We're GONNA. Talk about the period game which lets everyone have as much fun talking about periods as we do. At the top of the episode you heard Daniele Guilt songs her pronouns. Are She and her? She's an artist and designer grew up in. New York City. Daniele is the CO creator of the period game. Her Fifth Grade Teacher Miss Steinberg was the one who taught her all about puberty and periods that classroom moment where everyone shouting the word period. It stuck with Daniela for years. I feel so incredibly lucky for the way that I learned about periods I think about that all the time, especially now where that was like the most de-stigmatising way to get us into it like everybody laughed. Everybody did what they had to do. And they got it out. And then we had this amazing lesson. Though is just like the. Tubes and these pads and she stuck pat on the board actually and it got stuck on the board and she couldn't get it off. Daniele loved Playing Board Games when she was a kid. I was a big monopoly. Girl loved Munkala also. I was. A little bit of a sore loser I would say pretty pretty competitive in a way that I've mellowed out since then, but I have been known to flip a few boards in my in my youth. I'm embarrassed to say but. The truth when she graduated from High School Yellow Left New York to go to the Rhode Island School of design. It's a really well known school for artists and designers. During her senior year, she was taking a class on design and play. Our first big assignment in that class was to make a game about the body, so we broke off into groups and Ryan and I were a team. At that Point Daniele and her classmate Ryan. Murphy had been taking the same classes for three years, but they'd never worked together on a project before in the brainstorming process, their classmates came up with a lot of ideas. There were also really fun to play. There was this really cool muscle music game. It was like kind of like a body suit, but when you move different muscles that would make different sounds, so you learn about each muscle. Then there was a game that was kind of like capture the flag, but it was about the nervous system. We have an opportunity here to teach about the body, but also I personally am not that interested in like this is how muscles work or the nervous. Nervous system then yellow wanted to make a game about periods and Ryan was a little hesitant. At first he was like no, I don't think we're GONNA. Make Dream about menstruation and I just going to be like no, no, we're GONNA do this and so in order to convince him. He came over to my house one day, and we did like rudimentary period lesson, so we did the Tampon and the cup of water and saw like. Open up and we put a pat on underwear and I was like any questions you have. What are your questions? and. Actually Ryan had a lot of questions. He yellow went back and forth for hours on the specifics of menstruation, so it was interesting to be like. As a as administrator, saying like this is really important for us to know, and then him as somebody who hasn't been sort of being like. Oh, well like I had no idea about this that you're totally taking for granted as learned knowledge that opened back and forth conversation shaped Paul Ryan Daniela designed the period game throughout the process. Danilo learn to get way more comfortable. Explaining the actual details of ministration an how it works in the body. She specifically remember this one time in class I literally. Literally was standing on a stool in a class of twenty people I don't even know I was up there, but also knows like this is how a Menstrual Cup works. This is what a Menstrual Cup is, and people have lots of questions around that, and then that was kind of like my last personal barrier of discomfort where I was like okay, we can. We can talk about anything now. Yellows Fifth Grade Teacher Miss Steinberg is still teaching. We were curious about her, so we reached out. My name is Sue Steinberg my pronouns are she her hers, Miss Steinberg Works at the United. Nations International School in New York City and she still encouraging her students to shout the word period out loud, so we will start oftentimes at a whisper, and I'll say okay guys. Can you say period or possibly? It's vagina or whatever the word is, and then they will say. Period and the look at me strangely, and they'll say okay now say it kind of Lake. You're okay with saying it. Say Period the movie. And we go on and on period period until were sort of chanting it, and you feel it and I say it with them and vigor, and say it as though you really really mean it. Can. Sometimes we'll to singing it operatic style. Or sometimes wrapping it period. Copa period. That gets them so that later on when we're actually using it in a sentence that it makes sense, and it's biological or that we want to be comfortable with it. It doesn't sound quite so strange. Shot Amiss Steinberg. Okay. Why don't we do that right now? Go ahead and shut out the word period. We'll do it with you. Period period period period period. We Love Games feeling my flow. Producer meow grew up playing taboo and scrabble and our editor do late. Guy And her sons always have a game of ood. All going on in her house I was a kid. My family would have barbecues and I'd spend hours playing cards and dominoes with my sister and my odds at my grandma's house like Daniela. I'm pretty competitive. When it comes to the period game, we had lots of questions about the game play. Okay so first off picture around. In the center to white ovaries, sit on top of a red base, ovaries or part of the female reproductive system that makes eggs every time. A player spins one of the ovaries a marble shooting from the bottom. So Red Marble means you've got your period and a clear marble means you don't and you just move forward. One space and a purple marble means you leaked. The next nurse's office once a player has advanced four spaces that means a full menstruation cycle has been completed. The board has different types of periods, bases, PMS, bases, ministration, spaces, and just plain spaces, because many traders don't spend all of their time thinking about periods, the winner is the first person to make it all the way around the board. After graduating from college, Danilo designed partner, Ryan moved to London and these days. He's less involved in the game. But Daniele knew she wanted to keep going. And before the game could be considered finished. She wanted to see how people would actually play so in two thousand fifteen. The game was played for the very first time in a fourth grade classroom in New York City. The whole class could opt in every single student did opt in which was really exciting. We laid out five games on different tables and. I had a presentation that I did at the top of the class, which was like this is how you play, but also within that was baked in like. Does anybody know what a period is? Does anybody know what over his art? After playing, the students filled out a survey. Say what they liked or didn't like about it. Danilo says the whole experience was such a hit that it created a domino effects. We started with the fourth grade classroom, and then the other fourth grade classes wanted us to come in, and then one of the boys in that class had told his older sister about it, and so we went to them the seventh grade classes, and over the years. We actually I've developed a lot of relationships with teachers at that School Daniels tested a period game at that same.

"My Name's Ana Lopez Abo- on I'm twenty years old right now and I'm talking to my mother high absolute forty years old and I'm talking to my daughter zone lateral sir. Lopez Bell me. Rose Bay see has been enticing. Nazi hockey and this is feeling my flow podcast administration. As an event that happens to all types of bodies I'm Camilo Shoddy pronounced a she and her for this episode. We'll talk to three generations of men's traders in the Lopez family a daughter a mother and grandmother while use the pronouns. She and her and we'll travel from the Dominican Republic in the nineteen fifties to New York City in the nineteen nineties to Baltimore Maryland in two thousand nineteen. We'll start with the youngest ASANA. When she was growing up. Asana noticed that her mom didn't want her to feel shame about her period. Now she realizes how important that was here. She is talking about it. I think you did a good job with teaching me like had to use the pad in Tampon. Like the first time I had given me the hot water bottle and such. You did a really good job. Normalizing it not making anything like weird but there was one thing. Asana didn't see the same way her mom did. We wanted to throw me a party to celebrate me. Being a woman was something to be partied about Asana talking about a period party. Here's the basic idea. After someone experiences their first period sometimes parents are friends. Throw party as way to create a safe space tax questions about ministration. It's also a celebrate your period as a special occasion. I think for me like the period party was just like you're being ushered into this beautiful world that's Vanessa Lopez Osama's mom the joy and sadness and frustration of your cycle. That takes a long time to learn. But there's a million people before you all did it. Vanessa was excited. When Osama got her first period she wanted to mark the occasion but Asana fell differently. That just really awkward like Hey. Let's everyone over like just discussing. It felt more private to be honest. I probably wouldn't have wanted my mom to me a period party thirteen that maybe sound horrific because I do remember sort of feeling shameful about it. Just like the awkwardness of middle school and like the awkwardness of your body. I think it took a while to really embrace it with the intention of the period party. I wanted you to get there before I did understand. Why Asana Vanessa think differently about menstruation? Let's look back one generation. Here's Vanessa telling Asana about what she remembers from her childhood. I guess when I think about boiler like I think of what I did a really good job of teaching me to love my body and can general and I think given the time that I grew up in. She didn't really have the language to talk about it too much but she was like. Here's the thing here's how you handle it. That's grew up in New York City in the eighties nineties. She was thirteen years old when she got her first period so as sitting in the bathroom and I remember I like with the myself and saw blood and screened out to my mom like I got my period and says mom set. Vanessa's brother to the Bodega pads on the one hand. Vanessa was relieved to get her period because she was the last ever friends to get it on the other hand. Scan of sound like I hate to say it. I guess a part of me felt kind of dirty like all men. Now have this period. Vanessa felt like a period was something dirty for a long time. I remember going to school. And if you hide your period like you would high Japan in your pocket or like under your shirt. It wasn't until she was in her twenty s. She started to think about her period and our body differently and her mind really started to change. Once you started reading feminist books. I think especially. I'd read the Red. Ten and the idea was like women their periods and they would be put into this red and they were like ostracized from the men because they were on their cycle. There was also this part where like it was like a party because like all the ladies were up in the tent. They taking care of each other and they were like. Oh you have cramps. Like here's some oil to rub binat reading those books Vanessa. More aware for body a having my period. Put me in connection to the cycles of life like the week before my period on hyper focus productive like I could do anything. And that was empowering for her and I think for me. It started in books. These women claiming their bodies as powerful sites. It wasn't long after that the Vanessa's started to see her own body. As one of those powerful sites is she especially felt that power but she had a daughter of her own here. She is telling us about it when you were little. You probably were like ten months old and I was really sick. I remember calling the pediatrician. And like what am I supposed to do? And he was like no yeah. You breastfeed her because she's GonNa get all your antibiotics and so I'm breastfeeding you in the middle of the night and I'm like sweating profusely because I have the flu and I just remember at some point looking down at you and being damn sustained this life and for me that made me feel really powerful. I think that's probably the closest I've ever felt to God. But it also made me be like Dang. My Body did that that sense of power that Vanessa felt she never stopped feeling it and as a Asana became older. Vanessa knew that she wanted to pass that powerful feeling on and sometimes that Vanessa did things a little differently than her mom I will. I used to call the vagina the CUCARACHA which is like a cockroach which is kind of funny and maybe Q. But I hate it cockroaches. I thought they were disgusting. Do you remember what I used to call you? Regina flour and I like for real don about that because like a flower blooms and it grows and it changes and like goes through these processes and I think part of why I wanted to have a daughter was because I'm a woman and I wanted to like share these experiences so like I did very much think about how I wanted you to feel about your body. Now let's hear from Rosa Lopez Mother Vanessa and grandmother to Asana. She lives in the Dominican Republic. So she talked properties from a studio there the legal convenience and theatrical for Moyens. Forget Dobie bothered more cut in your so you will know.

"On this episode. We're talking about late bloomers. And what it's like when most of your friends have gotten their periods and you still haven't so I was more of an early boomer. I was ten when I got my first period. I remember sitting with my mom and my aunt. Juniors it's a diner in Brooklyn New York. They're famous for their cheesecake. So we're eating dinner and I remember feeling clammy. It was super uncomfortable and I knew it must have been my period starting and I just didn't want to deal with that. I mean I was ten. I was a kid. It just seemed like such a heavy thing to have to deal with thinking back on it now. It seems Kinda crazy to be injuring into womanhood as people like to say but I was still figuring out sixth grade Algebra and my own early experience has me wondering what's the opposite like so our producer Mia Warrant and is sat down with a real life late bloomer to find out I were going up and I thought thirteen was the time that every single person got their periods so even people got up before it was like that so this is Lola her pronounce or she and her. She's a junior in high school and she lives in New York City last year. Lola was fifteen. She still hadn't gotten a first period but all of her friends had already gotten. There's so I was definitely nervous. what if? I just don't ever get it and I think I just was nervous. Maybe there was something wrong with my body and I would lola skinny. And she's small for her age. She wondered if that had something to do with it and the waiting it was driving her crazy. I think I've definitely was like what am I gonNA get at one? Am I going to get it? I want it and then I started really worrying because I was like well. My sister got it earlier and my mom got it earlier like why am I not getting it should happen? Did he talk about that with your mom years? Yeah definitely my mom I was like. I'm really nervous that I haven't gone and she was like seriously. Don't worry like it'll happen when it happens below. It didn't believe her mom. She was the worried something was wrong with her and she was feeling some serious foam. Oh she noticed a kinship among her friends who had already started their periods. They enjoyed talking about. It just seemed like such a community to me like everyone kind of has this thing in common and they share this one thing and like they have these conversations about like cramps and like tampons. And but like I didn't really get that because I wasn't in on it. You know during a conversation. People talking about their cramps Yeah totally and like why did I say that? I don't have my period like I don't know those cramps. They just so badly wanted to be a part of that conversation and it did feel isolating for me like not having it and stuff. Lola says her friends probably knew she was lying but they didn't call her out and then finally my parents were away and one of my really good family friends was with me. I went to the bathroom. It was just like a little bit of blood and I was like it's happening. I was feeling honestly like relief because I was like such a late bloomer to everybody so I was just really excited to get it. Lola's family friend brought her flowers and red cake. Some of her friends came over. They celebrated but watching the tonys after all that waiting. It finally happened. But MIA and I started to wonder. Was Lola right to be worried about being late? Bloomer. Is there a normal age forgetting first period? So is here. She's a pronounced she and her. She's a journalist and she's good at digging into things in finding our answers to difficult questions so she does some research to find out more. So in the United States the average age to get your first period is twelve and for anybody. That's there period later. There's a medical term for that call. Constitutional delayed puberty. That sounds really intense. What does that actually mean? Well it's basically a fancy name for someone who starts developing later than the national average age which is twelve. Yeah so it's Kinda like the official medical term for late bloomer. And you know it's often inherited from your parents so your mom got her period at eighteen or if your dad was a late bloomer. It's more likely for you to be one. That wasn't the case for Lola Though. And it wasn't the case for me my sister either we'll right and that's because it's just about genetics. There's actually a lot of different things that can affect. When you begin to go through. Puberty Diet is one thing. Kids are eating different foods and they did fifty years ago and this can affect when you start to develop. Scientists are also looking exposure to chemicals. These can affect wind. Puberty begins. Okay cool but here's the thing. Puberty isn't a single event. Like getting your first period on average it lasts about four and a half years. So biologically can mean a lot of different things for you can mean. Developing breasts are growing pubic hair. All that fun stuff. Yeah so you know. All of this assay. The term constitutional delayed puberty might sound kind of technical. But it's not something to worry about. The truth is that people develop in different ways and at different rates and starting period is just one part of the whole process right and you know to be clear. There are other reasons. You Might Start Your period later than twelve like if you're a serious athlete. And you're burning a lot of body fat like dancers or gymnasts. I remember when I was a dancer in high school. I skipped my periods. Sometimes for a month or two right decrease body fat can delay puberty or make you skip periods. But what should someone do? If they're really concerned about it. I said just talk to your parents or caring. Adult in most cases is just a matter of understanding that everyone has a little bit differently in other words. There's nothing wrong with being late bloomer. Right when Lola finally got her period at fifteen she realized she was a late bloomer and she was fine with that but when we talked she realized something else. That didn't really sit so well with her. I just think it's so strange like this welcoming to womanhood thing it is. It is weird like since when I'm not a woman I like. I'm just not like I'm still a teenager and I'm so fine being a teenager right now. I don't really need to be a woman that welcoming into womanhood thing. That's really typical to hear my mom. My Aunt said the same thing when I got my first period. But let's unpack that so on a biological level getting your period means you're physically able to conceive but just because your body's closer to adulthood it doesn't mean that you are and the truth is a first period can cause kinds of emotions to bubble up. Lola didn't like the way people were telling her she was suddenly a woman and I feel like can be true for anyone going through puberty. First period doesn't always mark the transition from girlhood to womanhood. That's because not everyone who has a period is a woman we're GONNA get into that more and another episode.

I don't know the jury's still out that's suggesting that it's not reliable you know this is suggesting that your competition this other product is not a quality product that's not cool and I'll tell you why it doesn't work why you shouldn't do number one you should not ever do that to your competition because you've heard the saying be close to your friends but closer to your enemies while they're not your enemy sodas speak because they share the marketplace with you one day they may want to acquire you one day you may want to acquire them so drawing blood in this battle is not a good idea number two the reason why it doesn't work and it's just bad for your business is that I find it very offensive when I see a comparison page at totally trashes the competition and just as nasty and is making claims that they can't back up is a total turn off and I don't respect the company anymore I actually leave the website and say you know what if that's how they treat other people in their even their competition I'm not sure I want to do business with this company I'm not sure I wanNA give them my money there's something wrong with their culture the second don't is you don't highlight any positives about your competition a lot of people that just say we'd you all this and the competition does not do this the only highly of the things that they do that the competition doesn't do but they don't talk about the competition does do and the reason why this is a big don't is because it's just not believable it's just not believable when you have let's say a comparison char and your side of the Char has all these green check marks and they have all read exes when you're just highlighting things are going to give you a green check mark and the competition red x it can go both ways the competition can do the same thing and flip the script on you instead of being so binary be honest and give credit where credit's due for example with our software webinar initial comparison age with zoom we pray zoom for being a great meeting software and if you WANNA run meetings one on ones we actually recommend them that's their superstar breath but when it comes to one too many or few too many running a Webinar and you need marketing and registration pages in email marketing built in this is where we're better this is where you want to choose us the potential customers are GonNa see then say that's fair that makes sense and I trust this company more because they're being fair so highlighting any of the positives of your competition is a bad idea or don't is third party negative what I mean by that well maybe you won't say something negative your competition but if you insert something from a customer let's say a testimonial that says ah I love product X. I used to use this product and it was absolute crap even though it's a real testimony Lou even though it may be factual have some class don't do that to your competition I am sure you've had customers that had a bad experience in their opinion were you dropped the ball by mistake could've been customer service it could have been a glitch could have been didn't get their package on time something were customers are satisfied a happens to all of us the best of us how would you feel if that customer and their story of how things went wrong in your business was on your competitions website not cool last don't is tit for tat a lot of people say hey my competition is nasty they're bad mouthing left and right they're doing this and that they're saying untrue things I totally can relate to that but it doesn't mean that you have to stoop down to that level like Michelle Obama when they go low ugo hi you have a culture you have a standard and you will resonate with those that have the same standard and culture now the dues are obviously the opposite you want to be honest you want to be Fair WanNa show your unique selling proposition and without trashing your competition and a good way to kind of gauge if you're doing this right if you showed your comparison page to your competition to the CEO uh of that company do you think they would say this is absolutely horrible I'm suing you this is ridiculous or do you think they're going to say you know what that hurts but fair enough you're not saying something that I can disagree with so I want to give you some examples of some really good comparison just so you can see what I'm talking about the first example is web flow I talked about web flow in an earlier episode. This is a up and coming website builder website design type of tool and they have competition like square space and wordpress and shop affi- they're in a market that super crowded but if you check out their website or you can just Google web flow versus wordpress or web flow versus squarespace look at their page it's light hearted it's transparent it's honest this is on web flows comparison page for squarespace this on their site web flow site is saying this thus squarespace squarespace template approach makes it easy for anyone to have an manager website that's what they're saying about squarespace it it's true it's positive why would they put that on their site because what are they comparing it to the himselves what do they do that's different from squarespace they're not template based they allow you to customize anything and their designer friendly so if you're a designer and you like things to be a particular way you don't work in the confines of a template you're going to resonate with with Flo hey I like what full better because that's what I want cool templates are cool and everything but that's not for me good for you not for me and that's a great way to create a comparison page

That's f. l. o. To join us and now back to our episode fast for two years and p._j.'s live started changing in some big ways he started college and because of the hormones he was taking he wasn't experiencing ministration anymore so now that i don't have a period it was like thank thank god. I don't have this anymore. I don't have to spend money on things that i don't need you know pads in like medications. College is also so <hes> p._j. Met someone special. Can i just take my jacket off because i moved out when i talk in very expressive. I can't help it. That's zoe. Johnson preaches girlfriend when we interviewed them. She's six gender which means her gender identity matches with what she was assigned at birth and her pronouns or she and her are they. I met through a mutual friend in their college cafeteria. She commented my basketball shorts. One time literally one time and i developed a crush. That's right after that. I i literally just like look nice like i like your outfit and then he like lifted me and he was like like the ways that thank you is like the cutest because you're like thank hugh. I was confused p._j. Started spending a lot of time together. They really clicked. There's a lot of love. There's nothing but love definitely more than two some something this. It's amazing in one word but it's also hard to sum up something so complex as well because i think our relationships very complex part of that complexity initially had to do with zoe's period every month when's always p._m._s. set in. She was dark cramping and craving certain foods. Am i mean when i get my period. I mean sometimes you get a little bit snappy but i think it's only win like you haven't eaten i'm and then i know i have to feed you. I mean her favorite food. Is nachos a lot of the time it's pasta. I liked to fill up with like steph says she could feel comfortable and then like go to sleep but every time zoe started messing p._j. Started cramping right alongside her. We usually get cramps around the same time and that's what really irritates me. They call them. P._j.'s sympathy cramps. I mean there was a time recently. <hes> i think right before you got your period. Yeah we were both at work and i had gotten really really bad cramps hence. Oh it's like those moments like dude. You know i get. It's cute but it's like knock you. The idea of it is here actually living at their sympathy. Cramps reminded me of another instance when a person experiences the physical symptoms of a loved one. It's called sympathetic pregnancy. It happens when otherwise healthy six gender men experienced pregnancy related symptoms while they're partners are pregnant things. He's like abdominal pain. Backaches even changes in appetite to figure out if zoey and p._j. Sympathy cramps sympathetic pregnancy. Mia axe doctors wicca gotcha well the experience of paint so subjective and complex. If someone sufficiently empathic they can open themselves up to certain kinds of experiences so pain is not a difficult experience to conjure up for zoe and p._j. When they sat down to talk about it they ended up reflecting on some deeper deeper aspects of their relationship. It's definitely a weird thing in our relationship because sometimes she forgets that i've had a period before <hes> that's because because i think you're trans. Nece is like more impressed upon like you than it is on me because i just see you as like p._j. The guy a new year selfish p._j. The trans men sometimes yeah so like it doesn't registered in me that you have had a period which i feel like it. Should i mean it doesn't really matter either either way but the reality of it is when she bleeds through her pants and i'm like you don't have to be embarrassed like i've led to my pants before we just gotta do this and this listen. You're gonna be okay that embarrassment that something's always still struggles with. I carry a lot of shame about like my period. Then i don't really know why are we came from but with p._j.'s help she's learning to change the way she thinks about her period like my partner always tells me it's a very normal thing time period. If.
