"Wanderer, your footsteps are the road, and nothing more; wanderer, there is no road, the road is made by walking. By walking one makes the road, and upon glancing behind one sees the path that never will be trod again. Wanderer, there is no road-- Only wakes upon the sea."

-Antonio Machado


"I have the floor. Love asked for more."

I feel I will return. I feel an urge to explore my characters here again...
It feels nice, freeing.

Need some simple css to commission though and redo the bios. The big epic bios were fun but I'm a bit over them I think. It feels connected to an old self I struggled to be on here and I just don't feel that way anymore.

Drinking lots and LOTS of

Drinking lots and LOTS of water is the first thing to do! Eating chocolate, bananas, and anything high in protein and iron helps tons as well. Keeping yourself nutritionally balanced when it comes to foods with lots of vitamins in them is important.
Once it starts to hurt less, definitely force yourself to move around as keeping yourself active helps to take your mind off the pain even for a while after you've stopped! But if it stays really heavy and you keep going through super pads, it might be something you'd want to contact your doctor or OBGYN about.

Good luck! c':

GURL I FEEL YOU i often have

i often have heavy periods with lots of painful cramps (sorry for the tmi tefc )
all i can suggest for the cramps are heating pads and some kind of menstrual pain relief pills.
AND STAY AWAY FROM VERY SALTY FOODS AND SODA. water and tea can be your bff.
as for the actual flow itself, i would have to second fish up there about keeping yourself nutritionally balanced.
activity and exercise can definitely help too just don't over do it.
tampons help too! especially if you have to go out and do things.

Thanks you guys! I ended up

Thanks you guys!
I ended up buying some iron tablets for a start because as it is Im a vegetarian and the faint feeling was a little bit scary, I pretty well perked up after it. Ibuprofen helped a lot with the flow too. It was so heavy the past two days, the slightest movement set it off, but its slowed down a lot now. Its still there, but I can function whereas before I had to run for cover.

Cramps havent been too bad. More like a dull thing that is constantly there. Irritating more than anything else. I ended up going to drumming tonight and made sure to jump around. I exercise very frequently anyways, so Its been helping.

I just can say : WARMTH and Ibuprofen are the key.
I sometimes have trouble with falling asleep with all that pain, so I use a heating pad. It helped a lot to finally be on the pill, too.

*fist shake* YOU CAN DO IT.
Apoidea's picture

Regular or Super Tampons,

Regular or Super Tampons, Caffeine, and a heating pad. Even if it is just migraine medicine for the caffeine portion like I take, it definitely helps with those dull, achy cramps. Tea works as well.

Be very careful with those iron pills and get a stool softener to take with them. I used to be on them for a deficiency and it's kinda important.

Also agree with Schutz about the pill. I was put on it because of what is happening to you, which led to a pretty bad iron deficiency.

(argh tmi, and I am sorry TEFc)

yay another vegetarian!!!

yay another vegetarian!!! ♥

i'm glad to hear you're doing alright then!
also for iron things, i know lots of dark leafy greens have tons of iron in them.
like spinach and kale! if you have a good blender, i'd recommend making a green smoothie for breakfast or something.
or just you a lot of salad. i believe quinoa has iron in it too!

okay enough from me now. @__@

I feel your pain Kate. Been

I feel your pain Kate. Been dealing with depilating cramps and bleeding on my periods since I was 12 years old and dealt with a whole slew of doctors who were almost criminally negligent. I remember being 16 years old and going for some help, I was missing school, completely nonfunctional for a week every month. He told me I just needed to get pregnant and I wouldn’t have those problems anymore and told me take ibuprofen. I was seriously ill and that was the medical advice I got. Happened more than once too. So now that I’m 36 years old I finally get diagnosed with endometriosis but not before they had to remove a 9cm diameter endometrioma tumor from ovary caused my endometriosis.

So I guess my big advice is if you feel that something is wrong, seek medical help and don’t stop until you find a doctor who will listen to you and actually try to address your needs. Too many told me it was just something I had to live with and that’s bollocks.

Hope you feel better hun and good luck.

Schutzgeist: The ibuprofen

Schutzgeist: The ibuprofen certainly helped. I was able to tolerate a lot of the pain. it was just like, a bad stomach ache in my uterus. ALL DAY. Going on the pill is also something I would like to consider. Ive heard a lot from friends here that there are different ones with different side effects (pimples, weight gain) Is this true? Or just conjured stories from every teenage girls fears ever?

Apoidea: I ended up only taking the one iron tablet. I hate taking supplements and things like that. it did help in the first few days because I was loosing quite a bit of blood. Felt alright after that. Took some vitamin C too to help with the iron absorption. Seems like going on the pill might be an option, considering this will happen in the future...

Sleepything: IM NOT ALONE YAAAY.
Yesss, ate lots of spinach. Many spinach. I felt like popeye. also thats a good idea. I should invest in a blender and make me one of those. Might help me keep on top of my vitamin levels. Vegetarian is all new to me.

Sight x2: reading that doctors advice made me mad. That is absolutely awful.
Thats always been a creed for me, somethings not right, doesnt hurt to get it checked out. Its only my first one, but if things seem scary over the next few, Ill be making a trip to the doctors.

Ive lived with shitty internet for almost ten years HAAA. And dial up for about seven of those. I cannot waaaaait to be up there with the normal world.

I went on the pill pretty

I went on the pill pretty young because of my acné problems. And of course major pains and whatnot, but I don't really remember that. Been years. But yeah, there are different types of pills as far as I know, I having one that helps specifically against acné problems.
I've been on it so long I don't really -know- any side effects, haha! They say your uh hormones get less extreme? As in moodswings and whatnot. But well you know me. I'd be afraid to go off the pill if that's true. I do know my pain got a lot less, bleeding as well. And now I can plan whenever it's easiest for me to have a period.
I've read about weight-gain too but I wouldn't think that extreme of it. In the long long days ago, the pill would have a lot of side effects since the hormones were big in number inside of it. That's pretty much past, there's little of that left. If there's weight gain at all, it'd be very little. I'm pretty sure I'm gaining because I'm a lazy dofus, and not because I use the pill.

ANYWAY, I'd still go with Sights advice honestly. Your case sounds extreme, even if you're young into it. It can't hurt to be sure.

^ with Misako here. Have to be on the pill for medical reasons too and it's made it a lot easier. And with the pill, they have so many formulas now that there's one that is most surely good for your make-up.

But as sight said too, a trip to the doctor is a good idea. I wouldn't have known myself had I not went.

Definitely be thorough in the explanations of everything so that you get the right combination of hormones in your pill. I have gone through several different brands until I found one that kept everything I had down. Don't be afraid to speak up, either, if something is not feeling right.

Ah thanks for all the

Ah thanks for all the feedback guys. My next period is coming up in a few days. Im going to monitor this one. if its as bad as the first one, the pill will be a sure thing. I cant function full time work with something that has me leaving the department every 20 minutes, its just plain ridic. And Id love to know why so much...blood. Maybe there are more medical reasons at bay. MAYBE IM BIOLOGICALLY FUCKED. We shall see what they say C:


Mis: Goddamnit made me blush on the dang spot.
Apo: When I stepped outside I felt the breeze on my neck. It was so weird. I love it <3
Sight: Oh thats so inspiring to hear that. I would love to do it again, but Id like to keep it short for awhile for vanity reasons - it just looks great and is really manageable.
Thankyou <3

ALL periods are different I

ALL periods are different I have come to the realization XD Some people just bleed or cramp more than others and I know someone who doesn't cramp at all (UGH djhfdjsf). I have weird things happen to me on mine sometimes. I NEVER know what will go on before/during/after my period but I do feel lucky compared to some other women's horror stories I've heard. I have weird aches/pains, weird mood swings, anxiety.... I used to get sick (like colds), sometimes diarrhea (haven't in a long time thankfully). Ok I think I've rambled enough TMI here |D

Also, YAY INTERNETS!!!!11 \o/

The amount of people on TEF

The amount of people on TEF these days is ridiculous. Can't even connect on Wifi anymore, I need broadband these days.

I get sexist comments a lot at work, I've learned to ignore it pretty much. People don't change. A shame really.

Hope things get better for you.

A thing called cyclone Kate

A thing called cyclone Kate rushed through deleting tags and before she knew it it was broken. Thats usually my effect when I try to actually learn some CSS.

Ah its ok. Kittens are heaps cuter and funner anyways. There are plenty days in the year rest assured we can chatter away then C:

Indeed it is. As are lots of things. Makes life more interesting I guess. Ill feel better, I always do in the end!

Love this new CSS layout.
