Room 101 2.20.2008

Okay, guys beware...I'm going to rant about girl stuff!
I detest menstrual cramps. I mean, I know why we have them and how much worse it could be without them, but they are more than a minor annoyance. My cylce in itself is just a heck of a MAJOR annoyance. I am one of the lucky women who have water retention, hormonal acne, backache, headache, irritability, lightheadedness and nausea.
When I feel severe pain, I drink ginger tea, load up on Motrin or Alieve and break out my ever-helpful heating pad. The hubby often massages my back with baby oil and it helps wonderfully. Sometimes I work out, but only after a few days into my cycle. The first few days I soak in warm water for 15-20 minutes and whine and complain.
GOD! I LOVE being a girl!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
