I'm just kind of ambling along. Trying to heal my emotions and overwhelming sadness of not being accepted to vet school this year (yeah that happened). Coping, how does one do that?

Anyway. Weird thing happened last night. I'm lying in bed and all the sudden the muscles of my lower abdomen start to contract. I think it might be my period, but it's a sharp, biting pain not a dull, aching pain. I figure it will pass; over the next minute or so it becomes unbearable. I can usually withstand pain fairly well, however this drives me from my bed thinking only of relief from this terrible overwhelming contracting sensation. I climb down from my bunk, going quite slowly because my muscles protest my thighs moving distally from my torso. I eventually get to my medicine cabinet and take some painkillers. At this point, new symptoms emerge. I am instantly nauseous like I haven't been since the last time I got drunk beyond good reason. I grab my trash can and sink to the floor. It's at this point that I seriously consider calling the paramedics. I don't have a clue what is wrong with me; it assaulted me so suddenly and now I'm incapacitated on the floor in a fevered sweat, leaning over a trash bin. I consider the possibility that I might be dying. I feel so terrible, I'm sweeping my suddenly sweaty bangs out of my face. I'm trying to extent my legs so I can stand, only to be repaid with more stabbing pain.

Then, the nausea disappears. The pain lessens to manageable levels. The fever is gone. All I feel is sweaty and cold. My lower abdomen is still tight and not favoring movement, but it lets me get up and get back into bed with minimal interference. I huddle under my covers and quickly fall back asleep.

I have no idea what that episode was all about. It only lasted about 5-10 minutes at most. I don't know what caused it and it hasn't reoccurred. So now I'm just left wondering. I took two Tylenol and a multivitamin a few hours ago. I don't know if that'll do anything, but it can't hurt.
