Stick in heating pads or pick up a TENS unit. If it’s your “normal” it’s not normal and get evaluated for PCOS, endo, ect

No, I tried. CBD is good for this hippie millennial theme in cocktails. Not for hard ass pain 🙅‍♀️

Second the stick on heating pads (bulk order on amazon) and a hot water bottle for the hotel - they are revolutionary

Same same. I sometimes have gone to a City MD in New York, just to get an injection for pain. I know it sounds out of the way, but in 20 minutes you’re back to normal. And is 100% covered by insurance. Try it.

Lots of Advil. Dr said it’s ok to take up to 8 a day if needed a couple times a month

If it really bad— work from the hotel. Otherwise I’m on the heating pad + midol band wagon.

I’m on a long term project. My project is having me charge 10% of my time to a BD code. I suppose the argument could be made that we always do some BD to secure the extension of contract every few months but I’m level 9 and mostly just delivering client work (sometimes help develop assets as an extension of our delivery). Is this normal?
