  • DH was playing UO earlier, and from the other room I heard what sounded like whale noises. Went in, turns out it's the new sound the game uses for undead monsters. Now I'll just assume he's fighting pms'ing women.

  • I'm just getting over my being a girl crap.

    Do you have a heating pad?

  • Menstrual cramps affect more than 50 percent of women worldwide and more than 15 percent suffer from severe cramping that limits physical activity. The process of acupressure, which involves applying pressure to spots on the body known as acupoints that correspond to junctions of physiological systems, can reduce the pain associated with menstrual cramps.

    The basic technique is to locate the acupressure point and apply pressure using the tip of the finger, the knuckle or a soft rounded object, such as a pencil eraser. Pressure should be applied for 1 to 3 minutes, but care should be taken to ensure that the fingers remain comfortable while applying pressure.

    an acupoint commonly used for menstrual cramping is “Three Yin Intersection” (the Chinese term for which is San Yin Jiao), which is located behind the calf, about three inches from the ankle.

    I tried this with skepticism, but now I'm a believer!

  • Yuck, I'm sorry. I don't miss that at all. I had my uterus boiled out a few years ago, so no more cramps, no more bleeding. One of the best things I've done!
