So, periods and some of their symptoms can definitely be unpleasant to deal with. And for some people there is literally nothing even mildly enjoyable or pleasant about them. But, I was talking to some friends lately and we each realized that, as we'd gotten older, we'd tried to put one or two things in place (or shift the way we thought about certain things) that meant there was at least something about it that we enjoyed a bit (mine was basically to invest in washable pads with fun patterns).

How about y'all?

hello Sam W,

i just like the food that my parents get me. other than that, there is literally nothing enjoyable about it because the pain has gotten worse as i've gotten older.

Kind of a meta answer here, but I like getting it because that's when I feel completely normal and natural. I've had irregular periods all my life, sometimes missing them for months in my teenage years, so when I do get one it makes me really happy.

Other than that, when I have to go to classes on my cramping days, there is nothing better than finally coming home after that and having an excuse to be lazy all day haha.
