This is me today:
I swear that when I complain about my period, people must think I’m such a wuss. “Yea, my period is pretty painful too.” “Oh, I get bad cramps and back pain too.” Yet, no one I have met so far can tell me that they too have cramps that feel like a giant knife is being pushed up their butt to poke their uterus 🙂 But really, that’s what it feels like.
Today it is so bad that I drove to work thinking, “I can do this, I can do this…” Only to walk straight to the bathroom, have the urge to lie on the filthy floor and rock myself out of the pain. After I was done with that thought, I made a beeline for my fairy godmother teaching partner. She called subfinder for me and told me to go home. Of course, I went straight to my classroom to try and put sub plans together. After 10 minutes of this she came by and told me to leave.
So now I am home, ibuprofen popped, heating pad on belly, feeling lousy. Endometriosis kinda sucks balls.
