I know I rant a lot about the cost of healthcare and the shittiness of the American healthcare system...but do you know what’s even worse? The doctors. The doctors who deal with women who refuse to listen to them. Because I wouldn’t be here, angry and in tears, if they did. https://t.co/M4my8847y3
About 4-5 years ago, my period changed. I had always had regular, albeit long and heavy, periods but suddenly I was bleeding for weeks at a time, months sometimes, and in excruciating pain. At first I ignored it, attributed it to the highly stressful life I was living. Hormones.
But the bleeding increased, I was hemorrhaging the heaviest pads within an hour. The pain increased too. But I dealt with it. One day, I changed my pad, went on an amusement ride & by the time I got off it, bled through my pants...all the way to my knees. So..I went to the ER.
