The Book

I wasn't sure whether to post this or not, but then I thought someone else might like to give it a go too. I've been wanting to chart my menstrual cycle for ages. I did some research and found various charts for charting alsorts of things - many that I wouldn't have linked to my cycle! I can't remember where I found this now, which is very frustrating, but I copied it down on a scrap of paper, waiting for the book. The above picture is a next week's chart with dates, moon cycle, my cycle, plus various headings. It should be big enough for you to read them.
This is the key to the charting which I have done on the first page so I can refer back to it, but it is quite straight forward really.

This is this week's pages. I have done it so that the opposite page is blank so I can write any notes/dreams/thoughts/etc on it. I'm really looking forward to charting everything and then seeing any patterns that emerge. Hopefully it will help me manage my cycle/moods better :o)

That's a really good idea. I read a great book once called 'Alchemy For Women' which dealt with the various dreams that we get throughout our cycle. It made a lot of sense of the horrible, frightening dreams that I used to get around the time of my period and made me feel like I was more than just a passenger, at the mercy of my hormones! I'm still drooling over that book and trying to find a very good reason to buy one! xxx

thanks for sharing this shell. i usually just make mental notes of things that occur on a regular basis throughout the cycle..but this aging brain is not very reliable at the best of times lol. have been thinking of doing this to get a clearer picture, so this is just the inspiration i need to get started.
