all my trans male and nonbinary siblings that bind (and literally anyone who binds, no matter your gender) 

if you are one of the people who, like me, has to deal with their uterus punishing them for not getting pregnant once per month, take off your binder for that week or so. in my experience, binders make cramps much worse. 

and as always, don’t use tape, ace bandages, or unsafe binders to bind. I totally understand their pull, but your physical health is just as important as your mental health. if you get really bad dysphoria, sports bras and big t-shirts and hoodies are really good, as are big blankets so you can’t see your chest and music. 

this sucks, but you’ve gotten through every single day of your life in the past. this is another one. you’ve got this.
