Wasn't sure whether to post this here or in the Small Hugs thread, but dangit I want to rant about DETAILS, so here I am!
Mother Nature is currently reminding me that I'm female and Not Pregnant This Month, and she's not being gentle about it. I woke up this morning in what looked like the scene of a stabbing murder (yay), immediately got hit by some horrendous cramps (yaaaay), and decided that work could live without me today (yaaaaaay~!
). I should note that Mondays at work for me involve several hours of standing, walking around, and hauling moderately heavy things from floor to table to shelf. Not compatible with cramps bad enough to make me bend over and suck in air.
Well, I called in and settled down with painkillers and hot water bottle to spend a blameless morning reading EHell when… er… another portion of my anatomy started making its displeasure felt. Y'see, I started trialling a new medication about a week ago, and my gut is intermittently unhappy with it. It usually results in me getting several hours of odd squeaky noises and small burps, but not today! Oh, no. Today my digestive system went all out and decided to stage an emergency evacuation drill, downwards. Wow. Let's just say that was fifteen minutes I'd rather not repeat any time soon. And since it took place at a time when I'd usually still be in the car on the way to work… I'm really glad I stayed home today!
