Well, bend me over and fuck me without even kissing me first! Or buying me dinner?

Bloody gastro man and I never managed to sort out the issue of my gut pain never going away with my cycle. It always seems to return when I ovulate and am premenstrual. A lot of you folks already know this?

Well, PMS has just rolled in on the largest, most completely jewel encrusted, gilded chariot, driven by 18 unbroken Mustangs! Last night I was practically writhing in pain all over my bed (and I have quite a “gilded” pain tolerance myself.) It took me back to the days prior to ever seeing gastro man at all.

I popped a second Nexium/Oesomeprazole (I take it in the morning), hoping that might give me some relief? Some Gravol/Dimenhydrinate as well. And speaking of horses, I had to pretty much dope myself up to knock myself out like one. The pain was that bad. It took me quite a while to get settled enough to finally get to sleep.

I woke up after not much sleep, still in a massive Gravol haze and stumbled to the bathroom to take another Nexium and hopefully pass out. That was quite a chore. I managed to put some more time in but the pain kept shining right through. And I was nauseous as all hell. I finally just gave in to the frustration of trying to sleep with such fruitless results and got up. I had taken a shitload of Gravol so it took me a long time to get going. I still feel like crap so I’m still kind of out of it.

I had to cancel my appointment with gastro man due to the Postictal loveliness after my seizure a couple of weeks or so ago and I guess things are really crazy in his office as I’m not scheduled until the winter! However, I can call him back anytime. He did say that after I got laid off, I had serious potential to get sick in this area as well–not just with my bean.

In a way, the fact that this happened without me seeing him is kind of good (christ…finding some good in this?!) as I now have a very legitimate gripe on my hands. I have an idea that I am going to suggest to him. Going on an oral contraceptive. Someone suggested it to me quite some time ago as the hormones involved with your cycle can–and do–act as smooth muscle relaxants. So, maybe if I can add some synthetic ones to gain some control in that area…? Worth a shot? I don’t know.

Wow, last night though. I was even considering going to hospital later on! Probably of little use. I went once with ex-partner when the pain was excruciating in the middle of the night and they gave me IV Toradol/Ketorolac which possibly made a dent. And some IV Gravol which was totally amazing! Whee! They also gave me a script for oral Toradol but those pills were useless. Oh, it’s a NSAID by the way.

Now, another day of non-productivity. I guess I can’t help it, though.

Okay. Hear me out. “Body? Brain? STOP ALL OF THIS SHIT RIGHT NOW!!!”

I’m going to try and put hopefully a funny post together after this. I haven’t done a “Search Term Madness” one in a very long time. First though, I should try and put something in me from the good ol’ BRAT Diet. I have had an Ensure and some tea (although the caffeine might have been a bit rough.) Still, I wanted and needed it so badly!

And for those that don’t know of the BRAT Diet as some people have asked me before? It stands for: Bananas, Rice, Applesauce and Toast. It’s generally familiar amongst parents of babies/young children who are sick and can’t eat. Holy hell. I can not tell you how many times I have been on it due to “Gastro Madness.” It completely sucks. Even worse too as your toast has to basically stay dry and “clean.” I deviate a bit and put jam on it as it is more or less “clear” and made of fruit like the applesauce.
