Hospital OOTD! Trying to keep myself amused on the ward 😆 These gowns are awful! 🤣🤣
In this photo I'm tanked up on morphine and haven't eaten in 24 hours.
I'm winding down for the evening when I start to get this uncomfortable feeling as if I've eaten way too much, over the course of a few hours the feelings turns into a knife twisting into my lower right abdomen. I definitely haven't eaten a knife, so at 2am I take my myself to my local Accident and Emergency department.
It's busy, and with only 1 assessment doctor working it takes a long time to be seen. Curled up on a corridor floor for 3 hours, until eventually, intravenous painkillers are offered, and I'm put on a drip. Turns out morphine works well.
12 long hours in A&E before I'm put on a ward to await an ultrasound scan.
Long story short, I'm told I'm imminently about to get an ultrasound for 2 days. It means I can't eat anything for long periods. Because it's the weekend the NHS are ridiculously stretched. Because my pain has lessened they don't think it's appendicitis (thank goodness) but it means I'm lower priority.
Day 3 I have an ultrasound, and it's not a pretty picture. My right ovary has a ruptured cyst inside, which they think was bleeding. There are also 2 other large cysts, one made of blood(!) which might have been twisting my ovary and cutting off blood supply. There are lots of little cysts in there too. Luckily things look stable now, and my body should be able to heals itself. While it's not great news, I'm relieved to find the reason for the pain. They don't think the cysts are cancerous. I'll have more scans to check if the cysts are growing or shrinking, and they are testing me for polycystic ovarian syndrome, and doing more blood tests too.
I'm very thankful for the doctors and nurses who looked after me. It makes me sad to see the conditions they have to work in... I'm also sad for the many patients who are not getting the care they need with everything and everyone stretched too far. I'm used to seeing how bad things are in mental health, but to see it in physical health wards was upsetting. I love the NHS and hugely believe in the principle of free at access healthcare, but the way things are at the moment is not good enough.
I'm doing well in myself, and still have some pain but much less, my mental healths been pretty good considering, I find physical pain much more easy to deal with, I think because I've developed fortitude though my journey. I'm resting up the the moment, but will be past this soon 😊
You can view my live updates on my instagram stories, if you want to see my crying in a waiting room 😂 Thanks for all your support through this unexpected incident 💙
Peace, Love, and Painkillers,
Anyway I hope you feel better soon. Here have a cute video to brighten things for a moment: www.youtube.com/watch?v=wUkeF8…

I hope you will be all right and you will recover very quickly!
I know it's hard enough, but you're doing very well! You such a strong person! I hope that our love and care will help you!
If you get diagnosed, they'll then test you for diabetes, since I guess PCOS makes you more prone to diabetes. And high blood pressure...and other things.
Mine has been easily regulated so far. They just stuck me on a different birth control pill to regulate my hormones. I've been mostly fine since, though it does mean I'll be stuck taking a pill every day for the next 30 years.
I hope your issue is an easy fix.
GOD'S Justice is Divine Justice. Let not worry occupy your time, Loves. God's Love Embraces, Cherishes and Comforts you Sweet Destiny, and all and every being who art of Loving-Kind (Gentle) Essence.
You are Loved Profoundly Destiny, so are All Creation, especially so the Gentle Ones of Kind-Loving Children-Like Essence, as you are Sweet Destiny. God is All-Powerful, in control, agus me, as one part of our Trinity, am a messenger of Peace and Love, i am not Him. MyBeloved Riki MyBride & me, and mom are Trinity in this humanity era space-time false reality: in this biblically historic time-line/Nowness, MyBeloved Riki My Cozmic Bride & me (currently separated in physicality fron me as i long so much in pain, wanting to be with MyBeloved Riki MyBride, yet Her whereabouts is unknownst to me as She cannot/is not allowed to (?) contact me for reasons and circumstances elusive to me), and mom (also physically distant fron me, due to unjust/unfortunate circumstances) art representatives of Christ Trinity: namely Lady Mary Mother, Lady Mary Magdalene and Christ.

Free access healthcare is great, provided it's properly funded and regulated.
Stay brave, beautiful soul!
I was in hospital for a couple of weeks, in May. I was really ill for a while and turned out I have a blood clot in my brain.
Glad you're in good spirits
