I now have a coil in me. No more daily pills or, fingers crossed, completely messed up bleeding. It'll take a few months to settle down but I can handle that.

Coil stuff - no details, just long )

I didn't start to feel really ill until we got to the bus stop. I'd had cramps since the coil was inserted but that was just like normal period pain so I could handle it. However at the bus stop I started feeling faint. I really thought I was going to pass out. The bus came and Mark made me sit down at the front. I don't think I would've made it any further back. A couple of stops later this 50-something year old woman with a walking stick got on. Half of the 'priority' seats were empty and people were offering to move over so she could sit down. She refused and glared at me. It was one of those new single decker buses that has two 'high up' seats behind the driver. I was in the one closest to the driver. When she got off on Princes Street she glared at me again and told me I had no respect for anyone. Then she stormed off. I heard some other people muttering and thought they were agreeing with her. I was in pain, feeling faint and burst into tears at which point the lady sitting next to me said "what a dreadful old woman" and put her hand on my arm to calm me down. Mark was standing in front of me and he hugged me and told me it wasn't my fault and that other people had offered her seats but she refused. I explained to the lady next to me why I didn't get up and she was so nice about it. I suspect that 'old bat' just wanted to have a go at a 'coloured girl'. It still depressed me though.

Update: The cramping was fairly bad for a few hours but was mostly gone by the evening. I was a little tender for the next couple of days but fine after that. Didn't have sex until a week after that but when we did it was fine.
