I hate you so much right now: hormones making life living HELL

This morning I woke up with clawing, grabbing, cramps ripping through me.

My head was splitting – a banging headache sprang into action to add to the joy.

I had to crawl – crawl! – to the kitchen to stuff down two Nurofen Plus and lie on the blessedly cool tiles until the tablets started to kick in and everything began to calm down.

“Later,” I croaked to the cats, pushing them away, as confused they kept trying to lie on me.  “I’ll feed you in a minute.”

I emitted a lonely wail in a tone that Chewbacca would have been proud of.

Minutes passed.  I began to recover and heading for the shower I reached for my toothbrush and caught sight of myself in the bathroom mirror.

A huge volcanic spot glared back at me like something from a Stephen King novel.

Hormones I bloody hate you.

    First up, I feckin love Kelis (that album rocked), secondly, Aisling I feel your pain, literally.

    We had a bad week last week in casa Cherry, my hormones in overload and both lads on edge with teenage angst – Highway to the Danger Zone!

    I understand your pain Aisling, I used to get terrible pain until I went on the contraceptive patch, it helps alot now though. Feminex is the only thing that takes away my pain! Hope you feel alot better really soon hun

    Tip for painkillers and periods – My consultant told me to start taking them two days before you are due.
    My lay transaltion of why is that hormones kick off thier evil work a few days before your period actually starts. If you take painkillers when the pain starts you are playing catch up the whole time, so you need to get in there and put some manners on the auld hormones before they lose the run of themselves (and try to KILL* us!)
    I’m on ponstan for the bastardin’ yokes.

    *Slight exaggeration. But only slight.

    Feel better soon mrs. And feed the cats!
