911 and all that jazz…

Guess who had to call 911 and take a ride in an ambulance to the hospital last night?

I had THE WORST period cramps ever. I thought I could ride them out but was in so much pain that I threw up and went into shock. By the time I got to the hospital the worst of it was over but the ambulance guys thought I should go “just in case”.

I knew I was ok when they handed me this take-out cardboard French Fry container to puke into and I started laughing. Who can puke into that? Does this tiny dish really work? Thank goodness I never had to find out. The doctor told me I passed a blood clot and that’s why I was in so much pain. Let’s hope that doesn’t happen again.

I’m sad I have to dial The Puke button back to zero. 🙁

    Wow! That’s some bad cramps. I used to be out of commission for a day or two, but never ended up in the hospital. Glad you’re out of danger and feeling better.

    I’m glad you’re feeling a bit better now: that experience sounds really scary. I’ve never had cramps anywhere near that severe (or severe at all, really), but I did have a couple of periods that were so heavy that if they caught me off-guard, by the time I could get home and get my clothes off to change, my trousers would leave little puddles of blood on the floor. Not nice. It turned out that I have polycystic ovaries. Hurrah.

    And I thought I was the only one nerdy enough to be proud of my long no-puking record! 🙂 I’ve got a little more than a year to get to to make my 20 years!!
