bursitis, you suck!

keeping me from my true love–

horizontal bliss.


Thank you for reading! Just a little senryu expressing my frustration with hip bursitis and perimenopause. It's all complete bullshit, this 'change of life' thing. I love the comfort of my bed but even that's being ruined by damn hip pain. Anyone have some answers, lol? Feel free to give advice/rant/vent below :)

    Ugh! Sorry to hear about these nagging conditions. I’m not 100% but hear that inversion table therapy works wonders but is usually for back and spinal problems. I guess you can look it up to see if it works for hip pain. Best of luck finding the right method to manage it. 💖

  • Oof, hip pain is awful. Hope it gets better and you can get some rest! It's kind of strange, but I know someone who had pretty good luck taking turmeric capsules for their hip bursitis. Never tried it myself though. Great senryu though!

    I totally agree, perimenopause sucks ! Is it possible that every time a "change life" must be accompanied by pain and discomfort? 😥

  • Hannah Moore4 months ago

    Me too! Both my partner and I actually - we have gone for a VERY soft mattress, which has been 95% great, but sometimes if its very cold its still an issue.

    I’m with Randy, my legs are the problem. They have really made sleeping difficult as I have gotten older. My wife used to have trouble with her hips till she started seeing a chiropractor. It worked wonders.

  • Omggg, hip bursitis 🥺🥺🥺 Gosh I cannot imagine how painful that would be! Is there anything that can be done for it? Medication, physiotherapy, etc? Also, I've never experienced perimenopause, well not yet, but I've heard it sucks big time. I'm so sorry you're experiencing all this 🥺 Sending you lots of love and hugs ❤️

  • A sensory deprivation chamber? Sorry, that's the best I could come up with aside from heavy-duty painkillers. I love lying in my bed, too. But when you can't get comfortable it's the pits. For me it's my legs that start driving me crazy when I can't fall asleep.

    I am not looking forward to either peri or meno. Great senryu.

  • JBaz4 months ago

    Ok I laughed , not at your misery but the way in which you expressed it.

  • Rachel Deeming4 months ago

    Ah, peri. I think you were tame when you told it to get lost really. I take flax seed and a supplement to aid my drying up. Don't get hip pain...yet. When sleep gets interfered with, that's a bitch. Or a twat. Whatever.

  • Gerard DiLeo4 months ago

    Poethology, yes!

  • Kendall Defoe 4 months ago

    Ouch. I had planar fasciitis (look that up). Close enough?

  • Cathy holmes4 months ago

    Peri is a bitch.

  • Paul Stewart4 months ago

    I obviously don't know from personal experience, only Ruth's perimenopausal experiences...it sucks sucks sucks. This senryu though doeseth noteth sucketh. Damn.
