So it's almost 1:00 am, I'm still awake. Feels like my body is most certainly angry with me. Been having the warning signs of an ovarian cyst for several days(pain off and on, nausea). And of course it has hit me full force tonight. I'm not going to the ER because every time I go they make a mess of things. So, I will wait for Monday til I contact my gyns office again. Feeling like crap again.

Hi , my pain levels are pretty high but due to lots of other pain causing conditions. Sorry to hear the ER will be no use to you tonight, please be careful you tdont end up with a rupture or torsion. Have you tried a hot water bottle to ease the pain? Sending gentle hugs and just wanted you to know you weren't alone tonight. Hope the gyne dept can get you sorted Monday. 😊

Amanda, I'm sorry that your day went from restful and not too bad to this nightmare. I feel for you. It's late and I'm sure exhausted but not feeling like I'll be falling asleep at any time soon. I know it's a giant pain in the ass. Do you have a tv in your room? If so, put it on low volume for background noise. Perhaps it will be just enough sound to be a distraction. If you don't have a tv, put on some quiet music. That is always a good way to meditate since the music is soothing and helps quiet your mind. I hope that you can be relaxed enough to drift off. I'll be here if you need me, just holler

Cnan, our local ER is a joke already. Trust me, I know from personal experience in recent days. I was asking one of my support people if this can wait until my appointment on the 18th with my doc, but probably not. Ibuprofen isn't even touching it now. Might just have to call on Monday and see who they can get me in with. Alwayz, going to maybe turn on some quiet music on Spotify and just lay still. Looks like sleep is not happening any time soon even though I can barely keep my eyes open.

Hang in there, Amanda... I'll be with you all day. You know the text is always on and you can chat with me whenever you need to. Maybe the music will help you drift off since you're so tired.🌻🙏🏻

Alwayz, I hope it will. Going to try to attempt to put food in my stomach and then a nap. You know it's funny that my mom knows I don't feel well at all when I'm begging to go to the gyn already. That never happens, ever!!!!!! 😴💤

Rest well, my friend.. I'm going to go down for a nap myself. 😴💤

Amanda, I'm so sorry you're going through this again. I've only had cysts in 2003 & the mass in 2010, and remembering that pain, I don't know how you cope without a nervous breakdown. But then knowing you on here, you've already shown you have strength & tenacity to get through. You're in my prayers, with hugs! 😷🙏🌼

Morning guys,
I made it through the night and actually slept in about 4 hour spurts last night. Trying not to rip anybody's face off right now but I can get through it already. It's not too much longer. Ihavegot another appointment that I can't cancel this afternoon or I would be trying to schedule with the gyn today. Hopefully I can get something early tomorrow morning. Holy crap, I've forgotten how badly this hurts from February of last year.

Flappys, got an appointment for tomorrow afternoon at 1 pm with the NP. That will have to do for now. My normal gyn has nothing available for another week, but it does work for now.
