MY PERIOD IS BEING A bisque!

Look, this is the first time in YEARS where my period is light, fatigue-less, mostly crampless, non-moody... But my skin! It's the worst it's ever been - EVER! My teenage acne went away long ago, but this is making me think it was just in hibernation and suddenly woke up this week and exploded EVERYWHERE on my face. The zits are friggin' huge, they're red, and they HURT!!!

Uterus? Ovaries? How could you do this to me?! Your cruelty this month is worse than before because my skin takes forever to heal acne, and the left over spots will last longer 3 months - not to mention potential scarring... :(

Oh my god, these cramps. THESE CRAMPS. What kind of devil cramps aren't relieved in the slightest by two extra strength tylenol? And I'm definitely gonna throw up tonight, I can already feel the couscous coming back up.

It's getting worse and worse. I inched and hobbled my way to the bathroom where I hoped to find some remnants of prescription strength pain killers. Somewhere in the back of a cabinet I found one slightly expired, glorious maximum strength midol. In my excitement, I popped it out of the foil and it flew into the air and landed in the bathroom sink and fell. down. the. drain. If I had a forking gun right now....
THEN I had to lay down on the ground in the hall and just emitted a high pitched whine for about 3 minutes, during which Chester was beside himself and didn't know what to do besides lick my face, which strangely did not help.
Now we're back in bed and I don't know if I'm going to make it through the night. Last time my cramps were this bad I literally tried to hit my head against a wall to knock myself unconscious or dead. It didn't work.

don't die, fee! i've been there. if i don't take four ibuprofen (yes, it has to be four; i've tried all kinds of doses and combinations) the second i start to think i might have cramps sometime in the next 24 hours, i'm completely out of luck. if i wait until things actually start to hurt, it gets scary, for me and for the people around me. twice people have offered to call me an ambulance because they found me sheet-white and drenched in sweat from forking cramps. the one time i was caught without any painkillers, i tried to push through it and walk to the store to get some, and i had to stop and sit on the sidewalk for five minutes to avoid passing out. i've puked in public places, i've cried in public places . . . but i lived, so you have to, too. no head-knocking. no one wants chester to spend the next couple of days nuzzling your graying corpse.

Is it possible to die from them? I'm getting all pale and sweating it's hard to write out my will when my hands are trembling.

I'm usually like you, acr, and start taking pain killers right away but my period is way early so I wasn't sure if those first ones were really cramps or not. Now I know they were. Also possible that they're the claws of a demon trapped in my uterus, trying to claw its way out from the inside. I just hope he hurries up and breaks through soon.

poor girl...you need to get more percocets for yourself. Those seemed to work well when you had real bad cramps at my place that one time

I don't know if my gyno is going to give me percocet for menstrual cramps. I don't know if he could possibly understand the amount of pain that I feel. So I drew this picture in paint to help him understand how I feel at this moment.

it is a pain that is impossible to explain to a person who hasn't felt it. that picture needs to be on the midol box. i'm going to make it into a little sign that i can hang on my front door/around my neck during shark week. "stay back, bisques! i'm rage-pain-scribbly!"

i'm glad you didn't die.

I was so pleased that this month's period didn't involve the pain-close-to-death cramps (Fee, your picture describes them well), but now the dang thing is dragging on 2 days longer than normal and I am no longer pleased.

NSAIDs work better for period pain than tylenol, provided they're safe for you to use. If ibuprofen doesn't cut it, maybe naproxen, mefanamic acid or diclofenac are options. The migraine arrives before the cramps, so I get ample warning and can take something before I feel as though I'm being stabbed. I think I have a high pain threshold though, so their main application is reducing blood loss and preventing the "my headache has now progressed to the point where I can't see well enough to read" stage...

Today I put on my big girl britches and brought my Diva Cup and a bottle of ibuprofen to work. That was a good idea. Aside from wanting to eat everything in sight and having all the acne, it looks like I will survive the day.

Though I may have to nap on the floor of my office, who knows.

i just got my first precramps and am #1 crankypants. i want to stamp my foot and pout about nothing at all. i'm hungry, but everything i think about eating seems entirely unappealing, which makes me angry. i tried to listen to music, but i hated every song that came on. and i'm not due to actually start bleeding for about half a week yet. this is going to be a bad one. stupid body. i have plans on sunday, but i may need to break them so i can spend the entire weekend curled up in bed with four gallons of chocolate soymilk and a fluffy pillow to sob into.

I feel you. All I ate today was saltines and a cookie. And I'm starving.

I just read a thread in the foyer and evidently I have to post here now? And call everybody "zerg?" I don't know, it was all really confusing and I kind of zoned out toward the end.

So, as a male masculine man I've never actually had a period, but they seem just awful. So I'm pretty glad I don't get them. I feel really sorry for you zerg, though. I mean, the zerg that have periods. Which is about half of you maybe?

Okay, I think that covers everything for now. I'm going to go lie down.

It would be kind of neat if my period would just start all ready. Breakouts and freak-outs like woah, not to mention every cramp in the world is hanging out in my abdomen, krumping on my uterus. COOL.

At least my mood has been really good for the most part... all I want to do is sleep, eat and play video games.

eta- Water retention, get out of my life.

dear period,

you wore out your welcome long, long ago. do not come a day early. furthermore, do not come a goddamned week early EVER AGAIN.

me

p.s. i got to be honest: you're kind of a crasshole.

I have to admit I'd rather have an early than a late period. The last time it was late, I lost as much blood as I would have if I hadn't been taking something to reduce bleeding. Except I was taking something. And I stilled managed to spill blood on the floor at the airport. Luckily, this happened after not managing to hook up with a guy due to scheduling problems, so I missed the opportunity to freak out about being late (I didn't ovulate late that cycle...). I'll find out if shark week is screwing with my iron levels in a few days.
