yesterday, i thought that i (like most women) had a pretty high threshold for pain:
* i went thru numerous surgeries from birth to about 5 years old to "cleave" my cystic hygroma from my neck.
* i got malaria.
* i menstruate.
* i've been waxed.
* i got tattooed in a store front window in broad daylight while reading antique car trader. yes, i was sober.
* i had to pack and re-pack a wound every day for a few weeks. it opened after i had surgery to remove a fibroadenoma from my right boobie.
* i went thru pregnancy, labor, delivery and breastfeeding. twice.
and today? today, i had to pop two advil for a 2mm canker sore that's planted itself on the base of my lower gum.
JAYSUS! DOES IT HURT LIKE A MOFO!
and i mean hurt like a swift kick to the privates, or using sandpaper for tp, or hacking off an appendage and pouring lemon juice on it.... OWWWWWWWWWWW!!!
