It Couldn't Be Done

By Edgar Guest

Somebody said that it couldn't be done But he with a chuckle replied That "maybe it couldn't," but he would be one Who wouldn't say so till he'd tried. So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin On his face. If he worried he hid it. He started to sing as he tackled the thing That couldn't be done, and he did it!

Somebody scoffed: "Oh, you'll never do that; At least no one ever has done it;" But he took off his coat and he took off his hat And the first thing we knew he'd begun it. With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin, Without any doubting or quiddit, He started to sing as he tackled the thing That couldn't be done, and he did it.

There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done, There are thousands to prophesy failure, There are thousands to point out to you one by one, The dangers that wait to assail you. But just buckle in with a bit of a grin, Just take off your coat and go to it; Just start in to sing as you tackle the thing That "cannot be done," and you'll do it.

All girls know that menstrual cramps/period pain/ the absolute worst time of the month/whatever you would like to call it can be really terrible. It’s similar to being punched in the stomach over, and over again from all angles, inside and out.  Trying to explain this to those that don’t experience such pains is virtually impossible, aka men.  And since we don’t want to be viewed as dramatic and delicate, we often suffer and suck up the pain to avoid the comments of others.
Well, now ladies, we are in great luck. Professor John Guillebaud who researches reproductive health at University College London has found that menstrual cramps, also known as Dysmenorrhea is in fact just as painful as experiencing a heart attack.  With experts having compared it to a near death experience, men can now hopefully acknowledge how painful period pain can truly be.  With all things being said, it’s safe to say that Ibuprofen can be prescribed.
Hopefully with this new finding, doctors will start to take women’s pain more seriously.  Professor John, you are such a keeper.
