yay and yahoo.

Since I am a small-time blogger and don't really let anyone know that I even do this, I somehow feel okay confessing over cyberspace that my uterus is killing me right now. Well, it hurts really bad. It might actually be killing me too. I can't tell from here.

And yet this monthly ritual of pain onset and drug use means something very

woohoo! yay! fantastic!
