I always had severe problems with my periods since I started them as a child, I would vomit and have to take time off school.
My Mum had enough of seeing me in so much pain, so she took me to the doctors and put me on the pill, I thought I was in heaven lol , but then I was diagnosed with Lupus and had clots on the lungs and had to come off the pill and cannot go on any Form of the pill. Now periods are much worst.
2 weeks before my period I get nausea, get really weak, bad fatigue, joint pains. Then when it starts I vomit for about a day and half, diarrhea, but the pain is unbearable. I am sure child birth is not worst (no children yet) lol. I cannot eat, drink or take painkillers because of the vomiting. The doctors cannot do anything for me accept HRT which I might considered after I have passed the age of having children.
I am a happy and bubbly person, I just try to do things to make me happy. It so hard sometimes when I have a flare or feel distressed, my family and friends keep me going, also my support group, which I attend once a month.
