I have been i pain. So much so that I longed for the tinges of labor pains, as they didn't hurt as much.
Husband thinks it happened several days ago, while we were pushing a bale into a truck. Something in my abdomen herniated.I woke up screaming for my husband, crying and withering in pain. I thought that my stomach was twisted, or even an ulcer with a chunk of chicken embedded in it. I don't know it was 3 am and all I knew was that I hurt. Thoughts of a heart attack even entered my mind. I took 5 scalding hot showers in a 3 hour period, just trying to reduce the pain. My chest burned, it felt like I was kicked in the throat. It was all too much.
A large piece of muscle under my rib cage shifted, and was moving. The movie aliens flashed through my head. I'm going to die.
The pain dampened and I was able to function, except to breath. I could barely speak up, had to whisper because it hurt so much. Deep breathing was out of the question, and I would kill you if you got me to chuckle. Thank God I have a brother. I feel a lot better today.
I still feel like I have been worked over rather well, but I can breath and yell at the kids again, ha!
I never want to go through that again.
