The True Meaning Of Life

By Pat A. FlemingPublished: July 2017

The Years have passed by,
In the blink of an eye,
Moments of sadness,
And joy have flown by.

People I loved,
Have come and have gone,
But the world never stopped,
And we all carried on.

Life wasn't easy,
And the struggles were there,
Filled with times that it mattered,
Times I just didn't care.

I stood on my own,
And I still found my way,
Through some nights filled with tears,
And the dawn of new days.

And now with old age,
It's become very clear,
Things I once found important,
Were not why I was here.

And how many things,
That I managed to buy,
Were never what made me,
Feel better inside.

And the worries and fears,
That plagued me each day,
In the end of it all,
Would just fade away.

But how much I reached out,
To others when needed,
Would be the true measure,
Of how I succeeded.

And how much I shared,
Of my soul and my heart,
Would ultimately be,
What set me apart.

And what's really important,
Is my opinion of me,
And whether or not,
I'm the best I can be.

And how much more kindness,
And love I can show,
Before the Lord tells me,
It's my time to go.

All girls know that menstrual cramps/period pain/ the absolute worst time of the month/whatever you would like to call it can be really terrible. It’s similar to being punched in the stomach over, and over again from all angles, inside and out.  Trying to explain this to those that don’t experience such pains is virtually impossible, aka men.  And since we don’t want to be viewed as dramatic and delicate, we often suffer and suck up the pain to avoid the comments of others.
 
Well, now ladies, we are in great luck. Professor John Guillebaud who researches reproductive health at University College London has found that menstrual cramps, also known as Dysmenorrhea is in fact just as painful as experiencing a heart attack.  With experts having compared it to a near death experience, men can now hopefully acknowledge how painful period pain can truly be.  With all things being said, it’s safe to say that Ibuprofen can be prescribed.
 
Hopefully with this new finding, doctors will start to take women’s pain more seriously.  Professor John, you are such a keeper.
