Stewie: For the love of God, shake me! Shake me like a British nanny!

Today I experienced one of the most painful things I've yet to encounter in life....
I had kidney stones.

I experienced my first ambulance ride - because there was no way I was driving myself; I couldn't, though I thought I might. I sure as hell tried to be able to; but it came on like a freight train with no brakes.

By the time the IV was in and I got the pain medicine, I was ready to actually sell one of my kidneys for the pain to stop.

I'm tired and sore tonight -but yet so many worlds better than how I was this morning.
I wouldn't wish it on anyone; oh, and to anyone who is a guy - and heard it's "like childbirth".
Umm, no.

I'm here to tell you - it's far worse than giving birth; it's by far the most discomfort I've ever felt, ever.

Thank God, I've never had the pleasure. I've heard it's excruciatingly painful. Here's hoping you never have to go through it again.

Thanks guys!
Yes, it absolutely blew. They gave me one dose of Dilotin (morphine-esque) and that worked fabulously until that annoying little stone was gone.

I, for one - also hope I never go through it again.
