Argh. The gallstones are attacking some more. Far too much pain to sleep, or indeed, do much of anything :/

artremis, if you read this before you leave London, there's no way I can meet you tomorrow :/ Doubt I'll even be well enough to leave the house when meeping & gerwinium get here, so if you guys read this & there's a movie you want to see that's on DVD, rent it & bring it round.

When you go to the hospital as an emergency and they ask you how bad the pain is on a scale of 1 to 10, it's so useless, because "10" keeps shifting. My pain is bad enough right now that I am considering taking an overdose - not because I want to kill myself, just to make the pain stop. Of course, I'm not going to do that, because it's bad enough having a fucked gall bladder, I don't need a fucked liver as well. But seriously - I've taken the maximum safe dose of every single painkiller I have, and I'm still in frigging agony.

The heat that's radiating out of my gall bladder shows me it must be pretty damn inflamed. Can I do anything about the inflammation? No! because I have a BLOODY NSAID ALLERGY! Ibuprofen or Voltarol or something would probably be enough to sort it out, except that probably would kill me. It's just not fair - why is every single bloody anti-inflammatory on the market related to damn salicylic acid? Why can't someone invent one that isn't?

Woe is me! *sobs dramatically, and staples her hand to her forehead*
