    Its been almost a year since I banished her out of my life.
    I cast her out like she was discarded rubbish. I often wonder if she deserved that.

    Was it really that bad? Was she really that bad?

    I miss her. I miss the comfort she bought. I miss her presence. The way she made me feel so in tune with my body. How she intensified every emotion I felt.
    I dont want her back. She was destructive. She broke my soul with her venomous words, her twisted dreams & poisonous thoughts. I was broken when she was near.
    But, I loved her. I needed her. I still need her. Without her I am not whole. Now she is gone a part of me feels lost, trapped in a bleak void forever falling further and further away from me.
    The world seems scary without her. I'm not sure who I am or where I belong. Life is less colourful & more stagnant somehow.
    I want to reach out to her, feel the bitter sting of her impact on my life once more.
    I want to know that she is ok.

    But, I know that she is ok. For she is my PMDD alter ego. I am her and she is me.

    I don't know if any women would relate to this, but do the feelings of anxiety, depression and being overwhelmed sky rocket during or before one's periods. I don't know why but I think it's something that should be genuinely looked into. #WomensHealth #mental #Period

    Another Day, Another Infection #Depression #ChronicInfections #Pain #WomensHealth

    Last night I started getting pain in my right breast. Pain that I've experienced twice in the past 4 months already, pain that I've come to know well. And it's the pain of a malignant infection in my milk-producing breast.

    I may have a pituitary adenoma or prolactinoma, or it might just be my domperidone causing my abnormally high prolactin levels. They're so high they make me lactate spontaneously, mostly on the right side. And besides it being a nuisance, staining all my undergarments, now it's causing me physical pain yet again.

    The antibiotics I'll have to go back on will disrupt a bacteria overgrowth test I need to have, pushing back the possibility of finding answers for my GI problems even further back. it's extremely frustrating the lack of progress in figuring out my health and this makes it worse. It hurts, it's annoying, and it's something I definitely do not need right now. 😮‍💨

    Question for the Ladies: Pain from internal ultrasound still present 3 days later?

    Three days ago I had to have an internal ultrasound to check for structural issues with my uterus and ovaries. My doc determined that I have pelvic floor dysfunction related to my EDS causing a variety of symptoms, esp. frequent pelvic pain. But I am still having intense pain from the ultrasound even after taking my pain meds and using a heating pad. Have any other women experienced this same or a similar problem? How did you deal with it? #WomensHealth #Pain   #PainManagement #PelvicFloorDysfunction   #Pelvicpain #EhlersDanlosSyndrome   #EDSers   #HypermobileTypeEDS   #RareDisease
