Stress Begets Stress

Because I was stressed out about my classes

I stopped getting my period

which made me quite stressed

Now the doctor is holding my legs down

telling me to relax

and because I can’t relax

and I feel like I’m being attacked

I become very stressed. She says,

“Miss Park, you are not pregnant.

Are you worried about

getting your period?”


“Well, try not to worry about that.

It’ll only make you more sick.

Now scoot all the way down

and put your feet in these stirrups,

yes, that’s it.”

My boyfriend holds my hand

and helps me do breathing excercises

and it helps, alot,

until I start yelling.

“Don’t touch me, don’t touch me!”

I shriek. I can’t help it.
