Hi ema,
Sorry for the so-wildly-off-topic-it's-not -even-funny comment, but I couldn't find an email address for you on the page, and I'm irate about something that seems right up your alley :-)

I'm sure you've done a Google search for "menstrual management" before, but I after enjoying your blog for a while now, I thought I'd look around for more information about the topic, and to Goole I went.

90% of the results are about menstrual management for developmentally or intellectually disabled women! In fact, in the first three pages of Google hits, the only non-disability-related results are related to you; they all point to this blog or sites about your book.

I realize the menstrual management idea is relatively new and all, but is handling disabled women really the only context in which it's been discussed until now? Nothing about non-disabled women who just don't want their periods? I'm just blown away.

Anyway, I'm sure this is old news to you, but I was just wondering about your thoughts on the relationship between the history of the subject in the mental health field and menstrual management's current reputation in American society.

Sorry again for the long, massively off-topic comment :-)
