Pain, Pain Go Away

Man I'm dragging over here. Now I really don't feel well.

Cold, shaking and lightheaded the other night, which probably was a bit more urgent than I wanted to believe? Not a problem. Totally fiiiine.

General all around feeling like road kill stuck on a Hummer wheel, which is not an urgent medical problem? I want to huddle in a fetal position today and commune with a very large quantity of Advil alternated with Tylenol.

I feel like I have a blood loss hangover. Is that possible? Also, the pain, is well, painful. I don't usually have pain like this so I'm a baby about it I guess. (Do I redeem myself if I say I labored 8 hours with Pitocin before asking for an epidural?).

Dear Body:

Just leave me alone will you? I exercise you. I feed you decent food. I take your sorry ass to the doctor to be sure I haven't missed something. Can you just sit down and shut up? I have a life. I don't have time for this. Grow up already.

Up Yours,

Now, where are my big girl panties? It's going to take my biggest pair to slog through today.


  1. I'm sorry for your pain, but you made me laugh out loud with that last sentence.

    Betrayal isn't something I write about much and yet, your letter to your body here pretty much sums up the way I felt when my kid was young.

    You do all the "right" things, you devote yourself to good health or, in my case, my child's good health--only to be let down in the end. That feeling is one of the hardest parts about chronic illness, IMO.

    Anyway, I hope you feel better.


Thanks for your comment. I read all comments and do my best to respond to questions, usually in a new post.
