September PD1


Yesterday I got my period after 18 days late. The pain was terrible, it felt like someone trying to rip my uterus out of my body. I haven’t feel this kind of pain for quite awhile. Yes, I cried. I suspected jogging as the culprit.

I tried to make rice noodle for lunch, the pain was escalating so fast. I felt heavy cramps and I felt that I was going to passed out, I had cold sweats. It was terrible 😖

My husband came home from work around 5pm, I was curling on the couch. He said, “You look terrible, are you in pain?”. Yes, I was in so much pain!


I couldn’t sleep well last night. I took 1 x 200mg liquid ibuprofen around 11:30pm. But it didn’t touch the pain at all. I cried again, frustrated. The pain stayed until around 3am, I couldn’t sleep. I was watching a comedy tv show, but couldn’t distract my brain from my pain. And then I remember about massaging certain spot on my leg that might help with the pain.

I massaged that spot on my left leg, omg it was so painful! I kept doing it for about 15 minutes, I noticed that the pain had lessen. I felt relieved 😌 I massaged my right leg too, it wasn’t as painful as my left side. I was doing it until I fell asleep. Why didn’t I do it earlier? 😅 I really have problem to remember things that useful for my condition 😬


This is my left leg this morning, do you see the bruise? Yes, it’s worthy! 😆

Change!


I just had a chat with my doctor by phone. She told me that I have a poor diet and I need to change my diet for good if I want to get relieve from my pain. 

I eat too much potato chips, too little fruits and veggies. She told me to cut off potato chips and all of the packaged food, reduce my seafood intake, increase my fruit and vegetable intake, and also add more variety of them. She also told me specifically to add pomegranate, papaya, and goji berry for my diet. Oh my God, it’s sounds a lot for me! But she said if I can follow her advice, it will cut off the pain level for about 50% 😱😱😱 yes, I want that!!!! 

She sent me a link of how to massage certain point on my leg to help my menstrual problem. How cool is that?
