Poppin pills!

I know people who have not even had a Panadol in years because they don’t believe in medications to take away pain. I do. I am currently taking three different pills a day as part of the treatments they think will help with my pain (plus an optional pill for really 9 out of 10 pain) and there is times, where I will take up to 8 or 10 nurofen plus on top of this a day.. 

I carry a little medications purse on me at all times (this being my very gorgeous guess makeup bag!) I am reassured by having them with me, just in case. In case the pain really kicks in, in case I end up somewhere else when I have to take my medication or in case the world suddenly runs short of my medication.

I am so conscientious about keeping plenty of them on hand that I think my pharmacist is suspicious of the amount of prescriptions I put through him.. I almost go into my chemist every day, they do know me by medication and name. They did use to know mum and I because of the medication dad was on, but now I am the one who has taken over.. We did reach the safety net already this year where we get our scripts for that little bit cheaper which is a god send!

Thursday brings my appointment with the rheumatoid arthritist specialist.. Lets see how that goes!!

  1. You may want to consider getting rid of the cause of endometriosis, chemical and herbs that act like estrogen. These chemicals and herbs are collectively known as xenoestrogens. As you know, endometriosis is caused by estrogen. Xenoestrogens cause endometriosis. Thus, avoidance of these xenoestrogens, stops the stimulation of endometriosis to grow. Sadly, most cosmetics and toiletries even the natural ones contain herbs and chemicals that are estrogen mimics. These topicals that we put on the skin are absorbed by the body, act like estrogen, and cause endometriosis to grow. The Endometriosis Association found that dioxin in minute amounts caused endometriosis to grow in rhesus monkeys a decade later after exposure. You may google it.

    Also this website explains more about xenoestrogens and their link to endometriosis.
