How to Avoid Life's Uncomfortable Moments: Back to School Survival Pack

Well, the first month of school is basically over.  I love my students, but I can't believe that it's already in full swing! And yet, people in Oregon, where I am from are just NOW going back to school (right after Labor Day!) So I have put together another Back to School Survival Supply pack for those people who are just starting school now. 
"Cycle Survival" can sometimes not be the most fun thing in the world. Period symptoms are not very fun, I will tell you that much. But there are so many remedies nowadays that can help with this process, and for that, I am VERY grateful! I always keep a little basket of Survival Supplies for me (and for my girl students if they need!) just in case. Teaching 6th grade means you get to watch out for the girls in this manner! Having a "monthly visit" is super awkward for these girls and I want them to know that I am there to support them no matter how awful it is! Ha. 
Sometimes it is challenging to deal with these side effects. Yet, there are also so many POSITIVE aspects of being a woman. I always remind myself how grateful I am for the opportunity to have things that help me every month, instead of just living in pain constantly. I am grateful that I can have supplies that make me feel more confident as I deal with this process every month! 
My Cycle Survival Supplies usually rotate in and out, but there are always three products that are constantly repeated: 
EOS Lip Balm

The U by Kotex Curves Liners has protection, but it doesn't even feel like you are wearing anything, that is why I love them so much!! It has a 3d Capture so you don't have to deal with embarrassing period stories (Oh myI can't even begin to tell you some of mine) while being very comfortable. 

I usually add in some Excedrin Migraine (because headaches and migraines always come during the special time of month) and a yummy treat. Pop Tarts are perfect to have in the basket in my classroom because I can warm them up in my faculty room. And is it just me or do we all need a little something sweet during those "sweet times." ;) 

I love the U by Kotex liners because they don't get in the way of the uncomfortable feeling.
