30 Bananas a Day!

Hello Everyone

 

I’ve finally worked up the balls to start a discussion. I know the topic of menstruation has been done to death but I can’t find one quite like mine. I’m posting coz I’m over it. I am absolutely sick to death of my periods.

This’ll probably turn into an essay but here it goes:

I’m 25. I first got my period in 2000 (nearly 14). Eversince, I have had the most painful periods I have ever heard of: Apart from excruciatingly painful cramps and heavy flow, I faint, I vomit, I have a huge bout of diarrhoea, I sweat profusely, my thighs are sore, my lower back is sore, and I am really, really tired. Oh, and I get zits! Every month!

I ALWAYS take at least two days off anything I’m doing  (that’s at LEAST 24 days a YEAR! Gah) whether it’s school, work, social activities or exercise. For my last period I was bed ridden for three whole days. It’s awful. They last 5-6 days.

I’ve been to the doctors many times. I’ve tried anything and everything under the sun to give me any sort of relief at all with no luck (chinese medicine, massage, chiropractor, supplements the list goes on) and have had a few ultrasounds to clear me of endometriosis, cystic ovaries and shit like that – I don’t have either. I’ve had blood tests for my hormones but apparently they are all normal (my most recent one was two months ago). All everybody recommends is that I go on The Pill. It’s like this magical pill that will solve all my problems. I haven’t succumbed to taking the pill...yet. Even though I’m completely bed-ridden there’s just something in me that won’t let me take it. (During the period days I do take very, very strong painkillers for up to three days. I really hate that I do but I figure taking something for up to three days a month as opposed to everyday of every month is slightly better? Who knows.).

I’ve been a vegetarian since 2000 and in 2005 I went cold turkey into high fat raw gourmet stuff. That didn’t last long whatsoever. I followed it religiously and kept it up for about six months (then on and off for a year). I lost a tonne of weight, I was permanently lethargic and was too tired to keep up with my sporting activities and all I could think about was food! I lost a tonne of my hair (I’d say easily half of it – will I be losing anymore on this lifestyle?). My periods were still excruciating.

Has anybody else experienced anything like this before? Whether it is a personal experience or a friend of a friend or your cousins friends brothers mother. Anything. I haven’t come across anybody with the same story.

I love life and love living but this piece-of-shit problem is pissing on my parade.

I started 80/10/10 about two weeks ago. I’ve been feeling absolutely wonderful so far but I am not holding my breath.

Sorry for draining it but thank you so much for your time.

My sister had the same problem during her periods. She had horrible pain that she would be crying and screaming, she would vomit, faint, get dizzy etc., She isn't a fruitarian like me (she's a carnivore) so she took a pill that literally got rid of the pain. I don't recommend taking pills but if you watch Freelee's video on periods maybe it will help. But bring a high carb raw vegan should really help :)
