EVERY SINGLE FAMOUS DOG EVER WAS A BOY EXCEPT LASSIE (WHO WAS PLAYED BY A BOY) AND NANA FROM PETER PAN. WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS BULLSHIT
idlegoth asked: hey! i saw your post about stuff docs have recommended for pain relief, and I was wondering if you could recommend anything for a 17 year old girl who's having her first major flare up since her first lap surgery? I also have PCOS so I'm on birth control for that (progesterone only because evidently estrogen makes me have stroke symptoms) but I haven't had my period in 2 months and I'm in pain, plus I'm getting flu symptoms that I've read accompany flares. Any advice? Thanks so much!
wow, that’s a lot of suck to happen to one girl. sorry dude.
I do know that no period plus flu symptoms equals go to the doctor. if you don’t have access to healthcare, get in touch with Planned Parenthood and see if they can help you out, cuz they usually can. better safe than ectopic pregnancy, you know what I mean?
unfortunately I don’t have any experience with PCOS so I’m not sure how it plays into your cornucopia of awful. I actually don’t know anything about you: are you overweight, underweight, sexually active, vegan, anemic, a unicorn?
all I know is that everyone’s pain is different. and personally I’ve only found a very few very important things to be effective in managing to not have every day of my life ruined by this Judas of a uterus.
first and most importantly, clean up your diet. I hope I’m not being presumptuous but I know how I ate when I was 17 and it was the cause of a lot of problems - mentally, emotionally, and physically.
eat real food. fruits and veg. nuts, organic eggs. stay away from packaged, processed stuff, basically anything with an ingredient list. cut out refined dairy, sugar, and flour completely. animal fats really aggravate my symptoms and there was a huge difference in how I felt once I made the switch to a ovo-vegetarian diet. there was an even bigger difference when I finally gave up wheat.
it will be difficult because everyone wants you to eat crap that makes you feel like crap. your friends will want pizza and your parents will call it a phase. you won’t be able to eat anything from a vending machine or the school cafeteria or fast food, or have any of the pastries you see everyone else hoovering with their coffee in the morning. and the only thing you’ll be able to find at a gas station when your blood sugar is crashing and you just need a little something to keep you going til dinner is exactly the trash that will make you feel like your insides are made of mechanical cacti.
you just have to be firm with the world. and firm but a little bit soft on yourself. you have to wake up every day and remind yourself that if you eat like other people do you will feel like absolute shit. sometimes after long periods of eating well you won’t feel like absolute shit so you’ll be able to eat a little bit of something that you just told someone you can’t have and they’ll probably be shitty about it at you. sometimes you have to lie and say you’re allergic to get servers and strangers and loved ones to take your goals seriously. sometimes your family will sneak shit into your food because they think you’re being fussy for no reason and want to prove some kind of point. sometimes you will decide to be your own worst enemy, to eat the birthday cake anyway, knowing you’ll spend the rest of the party doubled over in pain. who knows. food is a weird thing and it makes people weird.
I have heard that soy can aggravate symptoms. this has not been my experience but I don’t eat a lot of it. I do know caffeine can be a killer. I know some beers bother me and some don’t, that hard liquor never hurts and neither does wine. you might not find that’s true. when in doubt, smoke pot.
also, exercise. unless you are completely incapacitated by pain, get up and go for a walk or a run or a swim. swimming is really awesome; I am pretty sure dolphins don’t have endometriosis. yesterday when I got home from work I was in such bad shape I wanted to spend the rest of the evening in a THC coma but instead I went for a 10km run and came back feeling almost human (aside from the drunks who chased me down an alley threatening rape but that’s another story). no one could have convinced me this whole exercise thing would be a thing had they given me this advice even a couple of years ago. for most of my life to this point I was staunchly anti-sweating. so if you don’t believe me, I won’t be offended. maybe try some free yoga instead.
sleep enough. you will feel worse when you’re fatigued, a lot worse. drink water, more than you think is necessary. treat your body right and give it time and you will guaranteed feel better, even if you never get better.
but seriously go see someone about those flu-like symptoms, that sounds bad.
things doctors have told me will help with endometriosis pain that actually do nothing:
- laparoscopic surgery
- hormonal birth control
things doctors have told me to try, just in case they might help maybe:
- more laparoscopic surgery
- prescription painkillers with possible side effect of death
- getting pregnant
things doctors have not mentioned that do help somewhat:
- not eating garbage like wheat, meat, dairy, and refined sugar
- cutting back on coffee
things they have told me not to do that actually help like a lot:
- alcohol intoxication
- smoking weed at even the slightest suggestion of pain and sometimes preemptively

with shit like this and this happening, not to mention the whole institutionalized homophobia thing, I’m inclined to agree with Christopher: it might be unethical to watch any of the Sochi Olympics, even as a joke.
on the other shoulder, though, I’m with Mikey: if some shit goes down during the opening ceremonies, I definitely wanna see it on live TV!
