When I was 17 my appendix ruptured because I thought I was just having period cramps and didn’t go to the hospital so don’t tell me PMS symptoms are no big deal
this actually happened to me during my math final and i didn’t think anything of it and when i was later admitted to the hospital my math prof was asking me ‘you didn’t have to take the final! why didn’t you tell me it hurt?!?!’ and i told him i’ve had cramps worse.
he gave me 100
This is actually an extremely common occurrence simply because in sex ed they don’t teach you how to tell the difference between menstrual cramps and other more serious pains. The way to tell the difference between cramps and appendicitis is that while menstrual cramps are generalized toward the middle of the stomach below the belly button, pain from a swollen or burst appendix will start in the middle of the stomach and relocate to only the lower right side, even lower than menstrual cramps, and is a very localized pain. It also comes on extremely suddenly and will worsen over time or when you make a sudden movement, like a cough or a sneeze.
Basically, if you’re feeling any sort of pain, even if it’s menstrual cramps, don’t hesitate to tell the school nurse or a parent, or if you’re out of school and home even make a doctor’s appointment. Chances are if your cramps are that bad there’s something they can do to improve that as well.
I am boosting the shit out of that reply, because I am twenty-fucking-five years old and did not know how to tell the two pains apart
Additionally, if you press on the right side of your abdomen, and the pain gets worse after you stop pressing, IMMEDIATELY go to the hospital
That was how I knew that my kid’s appendix was inflamed and getting ready to burst, and that it wasn’t just gas
Tell them you did the appendix rebound test and it hurt

Yes I did reblog this 6 times. Your lucky if this isn’t on your dash everyday.
I love the “not racist just traditional” one. I am so sure it is “tradition” which is leading you to make this comment. Please show me your other tweets where you were outraged by the non traditional casting of Johnny depp as tonto, or Ben Afflec as Tony Mendez or Natalie wood as Maria or Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeeen or Jake gylenhall as the god damn prince OF PERSIA
