Menstruation matters, I will keep talking about it ooo


#menstruationmatters #mymentalhealthmatters #womensrightsarehumanrights I read a comment from a male on Facebook that menstruation was contaminated blood ..I realized he didn’t know better, and that the way the subject of something as pure and life indicative as menstruation has been treated must have aided his ‘boisterous ignorance’ in this area. We have to speak up about what happens to our bodies and brains as women each month when we menstraute. I know it’s my human rights to advocate for total respect of my humanity on all fronts, and especially when I more vulnerable due to physical and or mental health. Today, my menses started while I was working out (I had felt it coming yesterday and was just praying it doesn’t come with some dreaded cramps) , and then my whole mood changed. I had to drag myself out of my house today, but once in the office, I couldn’t sit up or do anything other than read a book. I have thus spent 6 hours on the sofa in the office reading and dosing off. Now, imagine I was working in a company and couldn’t take such a decision or even stay at home if it got to that? Imagine some young girls who miss school during such periods because they can’t afford sanitary products? Imagine the stigma and stares if ha sun forbid you had a blood stain on your dress or uniform when it started and you didn’t know or it overflows like mine still sometimes done? And yet of dear males, if your mothers and wives or female partners never had their menses, I dunno if you would have been conceived in the first place…we need more awareness and sensitization about menstruation, and I use my own personal experiences to do just this
P.S: I hope there is still no taboo sending our sons to go buy our sanitary products oooooo

Demystifying & Destigmatizing Mental Illness, one program at a time


I am looking forward to this training with all my being. Sometimes, people don’t even know what they are dealing with or how they can help themselves or get help.

Sometimes, the stigma both from within and without, debilitates and makes it all the more daunting. This is a life time mission for me, and am so grateful.

@worldpulse thank you for the platform and spaces you provide.
