Anything to stop the pain. And the light shows. I feel like I am drugged. My eyes see what is not there, my nose thinks I am in a smoking den, and my ears hear high pitched noises from who knows where and seem to send me off balance.

This sucks big time. I've had 2 kids and this makes that look like a piece of cake.
