Ibuprophen is STILL my friend.


So it there anything I won’t write about? Yeah I’m sure there is – but I’m not telling.


Believe it or not the back pain from my yard work yesterday was a little bit better than I thought it would be today. Of course it helps that I took a handful of Ibuprophen almost before my feet hit the floor this morning.


But the back pain and arthritis pain in my hands was not enough. I had to do something to bring on more pain so I went to the doctor and let her stick a catheter into my uterus and fill it with saline. Like a water balloon. And then a guy named Dan (yes, another Dan) put slimy stuff on my belly and took pictures.


Let me assure you, fun was had by all. I was doing a one woman show about living with 4 cats and doing quite well when the doctor said “keep talking about the cats but you’ll feel a bit of pressure now, we’re filling you up.” Wait! I didn't ask for a full tank! That’s when I lost my train of thought and said “pressure? That’s pain not pressure! Ouch!!”


Thankfully it was over before I had a chance to think of something else funny to say and they didn’t find anything like polyps, spare keys or God forbid, another cat.


I was left with immediate cramps and ….. back pain (wouldn’t ya know) and a few extras which I imagine will last a few days. So what do you think? Can I find something painful to do tomorrow?

Lawd have mercy. This is the second post I've read in less than an hour about stuff being stuck all up in a woman's bidness. I feel for ya'll.. I swear. I'll be walking around with my legs crossed for the next week lol.

Glad the back's better :)

OMG what a blooming nightmare!! I have the greatest sympathy with your plight as I once had a camera in my pee pee bits because of a bad water infection- NOT ENJOYABLE!
Hope your feeling better soon and you find out what was hiding in there ha ha!!

I'm better today, it really wasn't too bad. Or at least - the part that was kind of painful was very quick.

Pee pee bits? I am SO laughing at the words people use to describe body parts. :)

O My!.....your very brave. Ouch!

Not brave but I do have a pretty good pain tolerance apparently. It's the anxiety that's really the worst part.
