I wish to register a complaint.
I am DEAD. Really. This is the letter I'm planning to send to my deity of choice:

Dear God,

I wish to register a complaint. This body you gave me is defective. I have spent the day mostly in bed, with gallstone pain, period pain and a cold, all at the same time. This shouldn't be allowed. I wish to claim a refund and/or a warranty replacement.

Thank you,
No love, h-l.

What do you think?

Blah. So, I have:
  • a hot, achy gall bladder
  • acid pain in my large intestine
  • crampy spasmy uterus
  • period so heavy I'm flooding through pads in a couple of hours
  • wind. Lots of wind.
  • a sore throat & cough
  • itchy, watery, burny, bloodshot eyes
  • not enough air in my lungs (I have, at least, taken more of my preventer inhaler so I can breathe mostly)
  • excessively dry skin on my hands (no, that isn't a symptom of anything in particular, just the time of year)

It's especially bad because this period crept up on me from nowhere - my breasts only started hurting yesterday, so I figured my period wasn't due until the middle of next week. So I've been drinking orange juice right up till yesterday, and not been taking raspberry leaf because I didn't have any. Hence the utterly appalling uterine cramps that I usually manage to fend off by avoiding citrus fruit. Arrrghh.

/me makes a weak attempt at a joke

  • wind. Lots of wind.
  • not enough air in my lungs

    Obviously these two things are related....

    Sorry - in the absence of anything useful, I defaulted to humour-as-defence-mechanism. Hopefully that wasn't the wrong thing to do.

    what is it with this month? my breasts didn't even bother to hurt at all, so i was really surprised when i started spotting 2 days ago. which normally presages a period 3 or 4 days later, so why was it all heavy clots and agony yesterday?

    ... and my period started the day after the last Pill of the pack, whereas usually, it takes four days. Strange.

    I'll join you with the sporks. Thankfully I took Codeine and voltarol-slow-release and ibuprofen and paracetamol to wean down to while I am in Scotland as I wrenched my neck/shoulders the day before the trip.

    I just have the going to the toilet every 30 mins and getting funny looks for sometimes going twice in 5 minutes from family ;)

    Can you take any decent painkillers for this lot? Sounds like it could do with a hammering.
