Yes. You heard me.
We women SHOULD BE entitled to "menstruation leave."
Hi bosses, if you happen to read my blog... Please do not misunderstand that I am targetted at you all or the company.
I am writing in general.
AWARE Singapore finds faults with the NSF's songs and whatsoever that has links to NSF and such.
There is a REAL problem brewing here. AWARE SINGAPORE should fight for "menstruation leave"!!!
I mean, come on, we have maternal leave and we have paternal leave and childcare leave but I really do think that menstruation leave is needed!!!
I am sure there are a lot of female out there that suffers as much as me during THAT TIME OF THE MONTH and especially on the second day!
You name it, we got it.
- Stomach Cramps
- Giddiness (Due to low blood)
- Headache/Migraine (I HAVE IT EVERY MONTH AND ONLY PANADOL CAN CURE WHICH IS BAD CAUSE I SHOULD NOT HAVE TO RELY ON MEDS ALL THE TIME!)
- Body Ache
- Nipple Swelling
Total discomfort apart from the fact that blood is leaving our body every other 30 minutes? And there is also the trouble of changing the stupid sanitary pad every 4-5 hours because it is extremely uncomfortable to wear a pad/tampon/whatsoever. Apart from that, we get urinal tract infection and other womanly problems so easily!!!!!
AND AND AND the fact that our emotions are all haywired and the rest of the male population thinks we are mad because we either throw tantrums or cry randomly because we just cannot control our emotions?!!!!!!
We have to endure labour and menses cramps and blood leaving us monthly and we hibernate babies for 9 freaking months.. I totally think that menstruation leave is damn reasonable.
It doesn't have to be a leave you know.. It could be a work-at-home day? Maybe just one day per month? We could still be productive at home though but we may just be scrunched up on our beds like a shrimp just fighting the cramps or maybe stuffing our faces with chocolate than having to deal with extra acne on our faces during our menstruation period.
Before our menstruation comes, we have to deal with our extreme appetite and being judged by others as compulsive pigs!(I know I am exaggerating a little but I just want to get my point across here...)
This is a serious issue that the female population faces. Some of us cannot even get out of our beds on mornings where the cramps are so bad or we either stain our beds/sofas when we lie/sit down.
DO YOU KNOW HOW FRUSTRATING IT IS GUYS????
Seriously, we deserve menstruation leave.
Thanks for reading and no, I am not having my period now. The agony was just over.
This is a pictureless post... What did you expect? A photo of a pad? LOL.
