I am in so much pain right now that I am litterly having problems sleeping, moving, and generally just breathing. But mine is a fairly bad case and I have other issues going on.
I also want to encourage people not to get freaked out about this... it is rather rare...
Kasper, that is a huge issue within the feminist community. Women are usually more vernerable due to childbearing, etc., and are somewhat just expected just to be "whiners" about being in pain due to some of the "mental health issues" due to "biological changes."
Obviously this is something that we have to deal with as patients, it is so interesting what the difference of treatment is when you have a male accompany you to a medical treatment.
It is pretty amusing and awful frustrating sometimes when I get better treatment, because my "little" brother accompanies me.
