Time and distance can be constructs of the mind more than based in reality, although there are few who would believe such a statement.
In Cross, however, this tends to be far more truthful than most are comfortable with.
Quinton Straus was born on April 3rd, 1975, and when he graduated from Cross High School, he decided to attend the Cross Branch of Miskatonic University. His focus of study was theoretical migration and the fluctuations in time through the Bleed between realities. Along with his professor, Dr. John Winthrop IV, Quinton succeeded in opening a fourth door into the Bleed. On December 16th, 1995, with cameras rolling and students and staff cheering them on, Quinton and Professor Winthrop entered the Bleed.
According to witnesses, the door slammed itself closed, and a force sealed it against all efforts to open it.
After three hours of strenuous effort, the decision was made to attempt to cut through the door, to see if the student and professor were at least visible.
Another hour passed before a bolt-hole was cut into the wood and a small, fiber-optic camera was inserted into the opening. The camera revealed a desert scene with tents and materials one related to the ancient Bedouins of the Middle East.
A moment later the camera settled on an old man, who turned and faced it. His eyes went wide, and then he shook his head. He held up his left hand and showed a Cross High School class ring.
When he lowered his hand, he mouthed three words, “Seal the door.”
Did you know that your menstrual bleed is a toxic dumping? 🌡❣️
Our periods are a byproduct of our 100 day follicle production. Our follicle (which then becomes your egg) will either become fertilised or break and offer a bleed. This follicle takes 100 days to create & is heavily dependant on how healthily you have been living for that time.
Contrary to popular belief, your bleed should not be painful. Beyond some small swelling and slight discomfort, a period should be reasonably manageable. So if you have painful periods, look to improve your toxic load. One easy way is to look at the quality of your food and water. Is it #organic and filtered? Non-organic food can mean an average of 3.2 pesticides per bite, compared to 0.8 in organic produce and in unfiltered water you could be consuming chloride, fluoride, mercury, BPA, arsenic & more!😳
Head down to your local farmers market for better quality produce 👩🏼🌾 & look to instal a filter on your tap at home, this can be a great way to lessen the pain (and toxins) from your next menstrual bleed! ❤️
Day 134: Yo, this nigga's shit smells like a grown ass man's! I love this fucking dog, but the grown ass nigga shit comin' outta his ass is... And now the whole house smells like an ass!

Menstrual fluid is not just blood - it contains some blood, vaginal secretion, cervical mucus and a bit of the uterine lining.
Interestingly enough, your endometrial lining is not fully shed. Infact about 70% of the lining is reabsorbed by your body.
These are fairly normal for heavy flow-ers. During your mensus your body releases natural anticoagulants that help thin the blood and break down the thicker lining. Sometimes these natural chemicals that break down lining don’t have time to fully do their job and a few small clots will be evident. Normal clot size is around the size of a finger nail.
I find this to be a rather silly estimate to give. As each women is totally different.
You often hear that 3 tablespoons is the average ?! What? I flow WAAY more than that. I have about 3 table spoons a day for at least 2 days. (That’s the beauty of a cup, you can actually see how much you are releasing.) Unless you are on the extreme side of flowing and flooding frequently, you don’t have to worry.
Beneath this mask there's flesh... Beneath this flesh there's a soul... A broken, bitten, barren and literally raped soul... All it did was trust... Now its eyes have frozen over like the surface of a winter puddle, robbing them of their usual warmth. That once happy soul's in there, I know it, but it's like it just took a huge step back from life. I want to reach in and tell my soul it isn't hopeless, but it won't believe me. I want to rekindle its heat but its insides are too damp with uncried tears. I always knew it had pain inside, but now its visible on her face and I wish it would go away. I know that's a selfish want, people have a right to their pain, they don't ask for it - it just arrives like the gift you never wanted. Every ounce of it wishes it had the nerve to swing your body off the top of a building. To walk deep into the depths of the ocean and stay down under. To take a gun and place the cool metal down your throat, pulling the trigger, shooting away the pain. And what's more excruciating is that all I could do is just watch... See my soul burn bit by bit... Watch it get torn bits by bits... But I've had enough... My soul's have had enough... Time's tough people... All those "All people are good" kinda thoughts that my mama planted in my brain are all fucked up ideologies... "What you're going through... That's all on you... You brought this upon yourself" Actions have consequences... AGREED... I cared... I trusted... I bled... Now, it's time... For you guys to #BLEED
