Look. We’ve all been there.
One minute you’re having a “very productive and super fun day,” folding the washing and what not, and suddenly – overwhelmed by a flood of emotion – you grab a few handfuls of your period blood and rub it all over your body and face and take a photo to put on the Instagram.

Her caption read: "Today after a very productive and super fun day, I came home all emotional with lots on my minds [sic] that I just pushed a side [sic] cause [sic] I didn't have space to deal with it in the moment. I sat down and did some deep breathing, and all of a sudden felt a strong urge to cover myself in my life-giving fluids as a woman. So without really thinking of why or anything else, I just did.
