Little miss make up
Hello again my amazing readers.
So I decided to talk about how my body reacts when Mother Nature arrives.
I no a lot of ladies struggle with there periods. Having a lot of medical conditions and your period is absolute hell.
Firstly, my elhers danlos syndrome(EDS) hates when I get my period. As I struggle with my muscles and joints with EDS, periods are an added agony. I constantly struggle with cramping to the point of nearly vomiting. Tears rolling down my face and holding my breath because the pain is so unbearable.
Secondly, IBS as If bowel cramps and bloating aren't enough add a period with it and you double the cramping and double the swelling.
Thirdly, inflammation, my joints flare with a period. My hips especially and the pain to walk and move is agony.
Fourthly, blood pressure and heart condition, from the loss of so much blood my blood pressure gets even lower, and as ye know I suffer from very low blood pressure. So, the dizziness and blackouts get worse and more frequent. Which also causes my heart rate to increase.
Next ye know I am on mood control tablets and with my period I'm a total emotional time bomb. I get super moody and angry and the extra pain makes this heightened. The smallest thing can make me historical crying. I get very Hormonal.
I usually have the spend the whole time in bed. I am lucky it only lasts for 3-4 days. Rarely it would be 7. Once I keep lots of chocolate close and a hot water bottle, plenty of pain killers. I tend to manage, I am terrfied of the pain returning once the pain killers have eased it. The pain always wakes me and I end up doubled over in the bed.
So Mother Nature attacks my whole body and all my conditions. I know this is very TMI but it's just a peer of been a woman and I wanted to share. Ye know by now I am very open with ye about my illnesses.
Hope ye ye enjoyed this blog post and thanks so much for reading.
Until next time.
lots of love,
