Men will never understand how awful period pain can get. I don't know if I have endometriosis, but considering the pain I've been suffering from for 7 years almost every month at least once, I fear it is that. Sometimes the pain is durable, even when I have to take a pill. But sometimes it's like an attack that numbs me mentally and physically. Last time it happened 3 months ago, where I was sitting on my kitchen floor like a mess struggling not to faint from the pain and crying in agony, having to take two painkillers to stop it, chewing one bite of bread for 5 minutes unable to swallow it how weak I was. Once my arms and legs got numb, it was horrible. What's concerning me is how it will affect my work, how tolerant my professional surrounding will be when attacks happen. It's horrible enough at home or when I can just leave wherever I am, but I don't won't to lose my job because of this hell.
I can totally relate! I hear you and i feel all your pain. It is really irritating when you explain people your pain level, they see you faint, they see you vomit but they yet give you that look and think to themselves or tell you “oh its just that time of the month just tolerate it, everyone goes through the same thing”. No thats not true and not everyone goes through the same level of pain us with endometriosis experience. I haven’t given birth but my pain during my monthly period is so much that i will bet that giving birth is much easier than going through this pain. I will not walk out of my house without a bag of pads and my ibuprofen pills. I recently got diagnosed with it i am not sure what stage it is yet as i have to still go see my OBGYN but i have dealt with this issue for the past 14 years since age of 16. This pain has taken away my confidence, my life and my young happy years for the past 14 years, every month, for at least 3 days.
I recently had gallbladder surgery and i am not quite sure if the stone there was because if consuming too much ibuprofen or not but i know for a fact this medicine will one day cost me my kidneys!
I really relate to what she said about doctors playing down pain, especially when you're on your period. I don't have endometriosis, which I am very thankful for (however a lot of other conditions with chronic pain symptoms). When I was 13, at Halloween that year I had been extremely ill for around 4 days, vomiting constantly, couldn't move or speak I was crying and screaming from the pain so badly, I couldn't eat or drink anything and the pain in my abdomen was so severe that I couldn't even bear watching anything or texting, literally doing nothing other than lying in bed crying. I happened to be on my period, however the pain was very distinctly unrelated as I know what my own periods are like, I'd started having them when I was 11. My mum finally took me to the hospital as I wasn't getting better and even though I could barely tell the doctors what was wrong because of the pain, I had to constantly defend myself when they suggested that it was possibly 'just a bad period'. It was infuriating. It turned out I had severe appendicitis and was very dangerously dehydrated, yet for hours they tried to pawn it all off on being a bad period and that I had a low pain tolerance. My fucking ass.
Jesus cured me. Not a religious nut. I just tried praying and figured if the Bible was true it would work and my simple prayer worked. Jesus is amazing! My periods normalized from extreme pain and nausea vomiting to almost no pain and sometimes no pain what's so ever.
My respect level for her just went through the roof. Having had two miscarriages before I cannot begin to imagine being in front of thousands of people in the middle of it and still having to compose yourself. I don’t even know what to say about that.
my mother had endometriosis and had hemorging and almost died during surgery. with that being said, you can control this with diet, dairy products and meat products increase your chances of cervical cancers and diseases such as this for women. I've done extensive research and i too suffered from really bad periods and it wasn't until I quit taking hormonal birth control and switched to a vegan lifestyle that i no longer cramped or bled for weeks at a time..
CAYANNE PEPPER CAN HELP TO 1 TEASPOON IN WATER. BUT START OFF WITH SMALLER AMOUNT OF CAYANNE PEPPER. MIX IT WITH A LITTLE BIT OF WATER AND DRINK IT FAST AND DRINK SOMETHING AFTER BECAUSE IT IS HOT BUT IT WORK. ITS GOING TO PROBABLY MAKE YOUR CHEST FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE HEARTBURN AND YOU WILL FEEL HOT. BUT IT WORKS. TAKE IT 3 TIMES A DAY. FYI IT STILL WORKED FOR ME EVEN THOUGH I TOOK IT ONCE A DAY.
My mother had endometriosis, and she had surgery to diagnose it when she was having really heavy periods that put her in bed for a week, and was having trouble with getting pregnant. It really helped her, and her symptoms completely stopped after menopause.
I think that she is doing everything right! She is thinking about her future ability to have a kid! I wasn’t as prepared as she now. I was diagnosed with endometriosis at the pretty young age of 18. You can’t even imagine how I was surprised! I can’t understand why it happened to me but I can’t change the result. I didn't realize what I was going through until I was hospitalized for 5 days. There I was given a high dose of antibiotics and some other meds. Doctors said my something but I was in such a deep shock that I just forgot everything. But 10 years later I understood the whole problem. At first, I thought that it was a mistake and I am still able to conceive. But I was wrong. One day I decided that will do everything for my future happiness. I read a lot of information and found that the surrogacy is going more and more popular nowadays. So I thought that I also can accept this option. My husband suggested to me to visit the Ukrainian center for human reproduction in Kiev because the prices there were pretty affordable for us. We chose there the program that cost only 30K Euro. Now we are still waiting for our turn for free consultation but I hope that everything will be ok. That is why I think that is right now!
To all honesty I did not know about endometriosis until my mid-30. I was visiting the hospital and saw a poster about it. I then said to myself, is this the cause for my long painful, body numbing periods.
(You see I had painful periods since I was a child. Periods would cause me to skipped schools, events; work etc because I was so sick, vomiting.
This pain became normal to me hell i day them since I was 12 years old)
Anyway, after reading the poster that same day i got an ultrasound. I had dermoid cysts... at least 2. The story behind that is another post.
But I dear say it’s horrible pain in now in my 40s
I remember telling my doctor some details about 'that time of the month', and she was shocked that no one had ever worried about me, and that the few people who had taken notice had just been like, "Cut out caffeine, drink lots of water, take a Midol, maybe try some light yoga" when I had all this stuff going on. I shrugged and told her that I was used to it, I had learned how to dress, what activities to avoid, etc. so I didn't embarrass myself, get sick, etc. PS: The anti-caffeine stuff still cracks me up, without the caffeine in my tea/whatever, I'd have a raging headache to top it all off.
What the fake tan is going on here? Before anyone comes at me with the word 'biracial', I'm fully aware that she's biracial, but the girl is naturally as white as snow. She just seems to enjoy capitalizing on black culture when it suits her.
I don't have endo but I get that doctors really do dismiss period pain like it's just women being dramatic. My aunt had to go to the ER three months in a row because of her pain before they finally took her seriously. Sure enough, endometriosis. People don't realize how bad periods can be, even if you don't have anything "wrong" going on with your lady bits. I can tell you for sure that I hope to God I don't start on a work day because it hurts so bad I can't walk, and I hear that from most women if they aren't on BC. People hear "cramps" and think of a leg cramp or side stitch and dismiss the pain as just that. Like, no my insides are bleeding, when have you ever been bleeding like that and felt fine??? Drives me crazy.
I have had this symptoms of having difficulty breathing, should I say weakness that I can not breath for the last 8 years ! ( once in a while , there are pains, cramp and tension in the upper abdominal! Whenever it happen . it makes me really weak and could not having the energy to breath and making me feel like I'm about to faint which cause a lot of sweating( . have been to many ER visits , all they'd told me was it nothing wrong! Even my family doctor told me I'm not gonna die , so darn rude because i always go there ! After all that they though i Had mental problems ! Fuck , Lol I still have to deal with this until this day, I haven't felt good with life with the diseases like this that people say there are nothing wrong, but You still suffer!
It's funny that Halsey says her condition was not easily diagnosed, because that means things have not changed since biblical times. It was referred to then as an issue of blood.
And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,
And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,
When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment.
For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.
And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.
As someone who has suffered stage 4 endometriosis for 20 years I appreciate the publicity around this disease though surgery isn’t a cure for endometriosis, I have had 3 surgeries in 15 years only to have it come back with vengeance (they can no longer go in safely due to scar tissue and now combined with the scar tissue the disease is worse than ever. In 20 years the treatment options have remained nearly the same for me and none of them effective with the side effects. Changing my diet, activity and supplements has been the only mild relief I’ve found. We need more funding and research for this awful disease.........please continue to educate people so we can see some progress in treatment.
I’m so glad she talked about this. It helped me so much. I started with the symptoms at age 10 when I started my period, and it took them 2 years to figure it out. I’ve had two surgeries and the second one it had spread worse throughout my body. I’m 13 now and it’s been the worst years of my life. I wish the best to anybody who has this disease or any, because it really sucks.
I have endo. I struggle every day. I have also been diagnosed with chronic fatigue and anxiety. It all goes hand in hand. I'm in liquid morphine for my periods and morphine tablets daily. I was also told it was in my head until they actually did a laparoscopy. Very sad that she miscarried x
I've been living with endometriosis for 25 years and I can honestly say it's a very painful disease. Before I was diagnosed with it I was in excruciating pain during the months of my cycle..so much pain that I could barely get out of bed and walk. But even after being diagnosed my doctor made it seem like it wasn't a big deal and put me on naproxen for the pain. NO it was a big DEAL and I'm still dealing with the pain monthly! Nobody should live with that kind of pain every month but I just push through it...
Regardless of wether she was doing coke or not, that in no way diminishes the message she’s trying to send in this video. She’s trying to raise awareness about female reproductive health and this comment section is full of people trying to take away from that by bringing up irrelevant things about her, be it cocaine or shampoo. Regardless of other things she’s involved with, she’s sitting there baring her soul and speaking about her miscarriage and chronic illness, and if you can watch this and still only come away with snide comments or jokes about her, then you have bigger problems within your character than she does. Women can never speak out about something important without it being overshadowed by something else, she’s trying to help and empower other women, leave her alone and keep your shitty comments to yourself because this isn’t the right place for them. This is also partly the reason for why women don’t want to share their personal experiences to raise awareness, their scared of being mocked and degraded for them. Y’all are some despicable people. So much respect, love and power to her for doing this 💜
A lot of people with chronic illnesses (such as endometriosis) turn to drug use as a coping mechanism to deal with pain or other symptoms of their disease. Her use of cocaine is a sad situation but it isn’t one she should be slandered for as we don’t know the reason why she’s doing it, and it in no way affects her illness. She’s using her platform to speak out about women’s reproductive health and the whole way through this comment section there are awful people trying to take away from that. She’s trying to help other women, stop taking the focus off of that and trying to make it about something else.
Not gonna lie I searched an interview video of Halsey to find out if she is British or not ( I don’t know man, stoner logic) and this turned out to be a genuine interview. Glad I watched it! Very informative.
