i probably need to see an OB real soon. my period got delayed for a week then now that i have it, i ‘m experiencing dysmenorrhea. yes, it’s a convenient “excuse” to go on “sick leave” (which i don’t really like coz, i’m not really entitled to sick leave credits yet – hence, there’d be a corresponding deduction from my salary for this absence). but then again it’s also quite painful, such that it suits me best to just lie down in bed where i could rest my back. otherwise, it feels as if a strong force is tugging at my abdonimals, weighing everything down. kahit nakaupo nga, masakit eh. so i just refuse to think of the pain.
