i enjoy being a girl
Yesterday my scar hurt. A lot. After thinking about it, the only thing I could equate it to was the afterpains you feel when you breastfeed in the first couple of days. I hobbled around the house in a similar manner to my hobbling three months ago, popped some paracetamol/Tylenol, and imagined all sorts of horrifying things that surely must be occurring inside me to cause me this pain. I felt something similar (but not as painful) last month shortly before my period arrived, and wondered if this was related. After doing a bit of Internet research (which, as we all know, is generally not a good idea, but I was curious) I came across one site that mentioned scar tenderness during ovulation, which would make sense for me given the timing. After several more searches using as many relevant key words as I could muster up, I came across nothing else. Fabulous. The good news is, today I feel much better. The bad news is, I will be very irate if this is going to happen every single month when I ovulate.
The only thing that's getting me through this ordeal are the Peanut Butter Cups Dina sent me. Bless you, Dina. I will bring you exotic English sweets next time I go home.
