  • Last night was not a good night. I've been having migraines all month, and this week my endo pain has been acting up, then all of a sudden my stomach decided that it had had too much ibuprofen, and complained with stabbing pains for several hours.

    So now I'm off ibuprofen for a while. This should be fun.

    This dance with my pain, it's a strange thing. I want to ignore, to numb, to distract myself from it... and eventually it always shows up, hands extended, ready to take me in its arms.

    Tonight it's the Monster Mash...
