IUD! TMI?

Nov. 19th, 2013 12:57 pm
So I got an IUD put in yesterday.
Two words. OW! and GRATEFUL!

"Ow" because, yeah. Ow... painful process to get the sucker put in, dunno how long it actually lasted, felt like around 5 minutes, but think it wasn't nearly that long.  Made my uterus turn into some nasty alien scraping and scrambling at my pelvis for a few hours, and made my joints achy and terrible, and my back all tight and spasm-y, but that's mostly settled down today.  Just achy back and cramps today. So... hopefully will all be uphill from here!

"Grateful" for two reasons, one, for the Arch Foundation for making it affordable for people on low income like myself. And two, and most importantly for my two dear friends who came with me to hold my hands and keep me from totally freaking myself out.  Feel free to identify yourself if you like, didn't know if you wanted to be called out. But gosh I'm thankful to you both. For being there for me for hand holding. For bringing of food, for driving, for everything. It made me feel like it was all going to be okay. That I had support if something went wrong. That I wasn't alone. Which is terribly terribly important. So thank you so much. You know who you are, and know that you made what could have been a sad, painful day feeling sorry for myself into a wonderful day in spite of 5 minutes of horrid pain and a few hours of extreme discomfort and pretty strong pain.


And all my friends out there on the internet. Thank you all for being my friends. I appreciate you all.

Hehehe, also realized that this is possibly a TMI and its Tuesday. So its the right day for that according to the internet.
