This is a Kidney Stone
For those of you that have had a stone (or stones!) you might appreciate the following picture. For those of you that have been fortunate to have never experienced what some say is the most excruciating pain one might ever know, I hate you. Not really, but you may think this is gross. After passing this little (a grin came across my face when I wrote "little", that thing felt like it was the size of a golf ball-covered in spikes) anyway, when I passed this massive beast I couldn't help but think about the other stone hanging out in my kidney and how most women will never feel this pain. I get to feel it twice! Actually, I get to feel it four times, I've had two stones previously. Did you know kidney stones affect approximately 5 percent of women? I guess my and my aunt are anomalies. Anyway, I'm glad to have passed this one!
