You won’t know that anything is wrong when you see me, but it is…

I don’t like to talk about “lady issues”. It’s unsexy, unglamorous, unfabulous and just a grim subject. I’m old school like that.

For the past 2 weeks I have had the most excruciating pain on my left ovary. It reverberates straight down my left leg and up my spine. The pain drives me crazy insane, it makes me aggressive, it keeps me awake at night, craving anything and everything salty. I’m a raging fire that can consume living and edible with the same ease.

I don’t like to take painkillers, but if I do, it’s the top shelf stuff. As in S6 top shelf and not 1 at a time. I guess “normal” girls would probably never know the pain levels that someone like me can tolerate (and I’m looking at women suffering from endometriosis and similar).

Yes, I do have plans to some day soon have a pain-free existence, but until I know that she is here, she is OK… I can’t allow myself to take that risk.
