Dead or Alive...NO ME! Not the 80s Rock Band!

So, ladies, do you ever get cramps sooooo bad that it feels like you've been shot with a .45 and someone is trying to dig out the bullet with a machete (now that's if the bullet stayed in you)? Well, that's me today! I can't even move. I get lightheaded. Food isn't appetizing. Swallowing pills makes me want to gag unbearably for hours. Nauseated. Blurry-ish vision. Cold with the chills. Feels like creepy crawlies are under my skin. Lying under an Ikea comforter in the fetal position wanting to cry myself to sleep. Um, is it normal for them to be this bad everytime? Hey mom, at least it didn't happen on a Sunday where I'd miss church...now I just have to survive an hour long dance rehearsal at 9p.m. Lame Sauce I Know!!! (at least this explains all the emotional crap earlier this week).

THE CRAMP CAUSIN' DEVILS!!!

Um no, that's not normal. When mine got that bad, we put me on the pill. Looooow dosage. That made me slightly less crazy...but not much. Then we found out it was ovarian cysts...and I get them a lot. Also they're hereditary, so you should take a visit to the Dr. and tell them your big sis has cysts. I'm sorry! Try 800 mgs of motrin, that usually works on my really bad ones.

i get the same way ash. when i was on the pill it helped a ton. i feel for you, i know exactly how you feel. maybe you should go to the doc like alli says to try and help out the pain. i like to curl up with a heating pad on my lower abdomen and sometimes that helps. im so sorry...

ashleyO said...

thanks you guys! yeah I need to go for a vis vis to da doctah! um i HAD one of those corn kernal heating pads that you stick in the microwave but I lent it out to shani albright's sister when she was feeling the same way about 2 weeks ago...except she was throwing up a storm!

anyway, i put the picture up JUST for Taylor so that he could comment...didn't want to discriminate! and look...it worked!

If you do have cysts, just make sure he doesn't dig them out with a machete.
Sorry lady! That sucks a fat one! Pill helped my cramps too.

Go to the Doctor. We need to find you a good one in Provo. I remember that Lydia went to some midwife hack who gave her bad advice. Maybe Liza could get you into Dr. Gordon. Also, so you don't feel too bad, dad has offered to take you to Disneyland over thanksgiving if you want to go. I don't think that the Bro and Sis could go though because their passes don't allow. I am not sure how that works. PLUS it will be really busy, but you would at least get to go for a couple days...or would you rather go over Christmas. The only problem with that is that Mandy and Taylor will be up here.

ashleyO said...

ew KJ...yeah I'll make sure of that.

yes muzzah...I need to get a good one. And about Dinnysan, I can't decide which is a better time to go...Can the Sis go during the Christmas, (excuse me), Winter break? hard to choose. Won't they both be busy? Even to just be there and smell the goodness of it or ride the tram, *gets excited by the word tram*, I'd be happy.

Here's the calendar for blackout dates for us. We have the So Cal Annual Passport, not the Select. I'm not sure what Mandy has. I'm sure we can figure something out.

ashleyO said...

Ok so I have that Wednesday off before Thanksgiving...but then it looks like you guys are pretty much screwed. eep. sad story of my day!

Eliza said...

you also picked a picture that isn't discriminatory such as.

Eliza said...

or should I say what some might say as stereotypical.

ashleyO said...

riiiight Liza... this is true! Shedevils. Red... all works out.

Mandy said...

i have the select so the only day i could go would be wed. when do you have winter break? we are leaving to come home hopefully on dec 12 or 13 if tays final gets moved up. otherwise we wont leave until the 14. do you have that week off dec 10-14? we could go then. taylor wont be able to go anytime because of school. just me and the boys

shauna said...

I figured that most of the others couldn't go. I just know how badly you wanted to go and so I made the suggestion to go with me and dad. We can just wait until the spring and try to work something out if you would rather do that. It's totally up to you.

Eliza said...

and the shedevils are white and shelady is brown.....

Jayci said...

ooo poor Ashley! I had to read this out loud to Mark. now I don't know if I've ever had them be quite THAT bad, but I have to agree, cramps are one of the things I could definitely live without!! I hope you feel better. soon!

ashleyO said...

Liza, I was trying to imply other things and not concentrate on what you just said...hahaha...Shame!!! Anyway, yeah i think my finals are that week Mandy. That stinks! Um, thanks for the hoping Jayci! I'm feeling much better today. Now i'm just broken from dance....something seriously wrong with my hip flexors and abductor longus! perhaps my gracilis too!

don't give me that confused look!!!

Alli Fantastico said...

does that mean your bootious maximus is fine?

ashleyO said...

well actually the top of my hamstrings hurt...I have a circle of pain around the whole top of my thigh.....hard to explain but it hurts. Cant sit down...cant get in my car...cant swing my leg into my car...OWWWIE!!! lol

shauna said...

Get to the trainer today. Probably just a little adjustment and you will hopefully be fine.

ashleyO said...

nah its more like strained muscles from Pat's dance. Sucks!

Eliza said...

i ain't afraid to say it like it is...pshhht! Alli taught me that.

ashleyO said...

Eliza said...

ashleyO said...

ashleyO said...

Lyd said...

Well, can't say that I can be a part of these "wonderful" physical pains seeing as how I have a brain tumor and all! :) Oh and Dinnysan, I want to come with my p-rants too! hehe The more the merrier right?!
