I don't know why I thought that I could work today.
I guess I really am the eternal optimist. Or I'm just crazy. Or both.
I woke up at 4:30 am to go to the bathroom. Before I went to bed I took two extra strength T.ylenols, just in case. So when I got up the first time this morning I took two more thinking that when I got up at 6:30 that I would be good to go.
Alas, it was the exact opposite.
Not only did the T.ylenol not work one bit, but my bowels were also very angry at me (sorry, TMI!). I had to go to the bathroom four times before I even finished my cereal! Needless to say, Mr. JB called my school secretary to tell her that there was no way I could work today. Not only is the bathroom really far from my classroom, I can't really leave a class of 20 grade one students alone to use it!
So I'm back in bed with the heating pad -- the only source of relief that I have since I can't take any of the good pain medication before my surgery tomorrow. I'm glad that the urge to go to the bathroom has subsided a bit and that I don't feel like I have to throw up anymore.
Honestly, is it really going to get better after surgery? Will my periods really be almost pain-free?
p.s. I had that strangest dream last night! I dreamt that I had a little girl who was blonde (not really possible since I'm Asian!), but my ex-boyfriend was her dad (which is the scariest part of the dream since I didn't want children with that man at all, hence he is my ex!). I was at a party at my ex's mother's house and I was leaving my little girl behind. I was at the door putting my boots on wondering why I had to leave her there. When I realized that I had to get her I woke up. I was so confused when I woke up. I kept on thinking, I want to get my baby. I have to get her. Why isn't she with me?
Strange, I know.
I just called the hospital for my surgery time. I have to check in by 7am and my surgery is a 9:10am.
Honestly, after dealing with this pain today it can't come any sooner!
