    Omg. **** my life. Laying down in a retarded

    position all day. Not being able to walk or sit down without feeling pain. Ugh. Paracetamol doesn't help at all. Can't wait till this week is over. :(

    Punched From The Inside.

    I feel like I am being punched from the inside and can do nothing but curl up in a fetal like state and take a couple of paracetamols. My womb is a fist squeezing, squeezing, tighter and tighter like a boa constrictor on it's prey. Most of the time I do not feel anything, but...

    I'm sick of feeling wet down there

    for a whole week! It's annoying! And I'm sick of giving birth to "babies" (not actual babies. You know what the h3ll I mean). This time the "babies" caused more pain because they decided to grow. What did I ever do you, Oh Great Creator? What?!

    Those moments when it feels like thousands of

    knives ripping through your abdomen. The nausea. The headaches. The shaking. Being a girl has it's perks, but this is definitely not one of them. Excuse me while I go die now

    Yesterday at school: Stomach Flu was going

    around. I ate lunch, and the meat tasted weird. I didn't want to eat it but ate it anyway so that I wouldn't have hunger pains later. My stomach starts hurting so badly that I think I am about to puke. I am feeling puking sensations. I go to the nurse's office (which is rare for...

    So, so, so painful! It starts off with waves,

    but then becomes excruciating pangs of pain! My whole stomach hurts, my back is sore, my legs feel numb and tingly, and the pain only increases by the hour. I'm so glad this only lasts one day, and usually the first day of my period. Chocolate, please, please distract me and...

    Raspberry Tea Stopped My Painful Periods

    I started taking Navane to treat so-called schizophrenia in 1982. It helped somewhat and I continue to take it to this day, not because it helps so much with any, again, so-called, "symptoms," but because it helps me to sleep and I firmly believe that although its...

    I always know when my period comes

    because of the pain. It's pain that hurts but isn't at the stage where I'm thinking "I can't deal with this anymore". It's like an alarm clock that tells me it's here. But after I realize I've got it. Suddenly it starts to be a nightmare. The pain increases and increases and...

    but that one day I suffer is hell. I've had it so bad before I ended up with flu like symptoms. I was sweating crazily and couldn't even open my eyes properly and vomited. The pain was so intense I wanted to die. Thankfully I only ever had that once and care to never relive...

    ..but only when I'm on birth control (which I am on constantly now). But this time, my period is worse than ever. I think it's because I was having cramps about a week beforehand but with virtually no blood, but when I started taking my period pills; it took a day or two, but...
