***These jokes in front of a nation could not have helped. They should be ashamed,.
When I first read about this woman having 100 orgasms a day, I thought it was funny or great, for about half a second, and I then felt awful for even thinking it. Imagine, having over a 100 orgasms a day. At my peak, when I was 16 to 25, I might have managed 4, maybe 5 times in a day, and believe me, those days didn't come often. When I first got married, after the usual honeymoon and screwing on everything in the house, I settled down to two or three times a week. Now, well, don't ask. But, for this poor woman to have to sit on a frozen bag of peas during one four-day time period must have been hell.
She is being made fun of by newspapers with headlines like, "Come Again" and being described as "some women have all the fun". There is no way in hell having 100 orgasms in a day could be fun. Having sex and orgasms are great, of course. But to be on a bus or at your child's music recital and have to run to the restroom is a terrible thing. Honestly, I had never heard of it.
It is a rare condition call "persistent genial arousal disorder" or PGAD. This woman is a 44-year old nurse and it is ruining her life. Her name is Pat Ramsey and she is quoted as saying “People who don’t understand the disorder think multiple orgasms are a luxury, but I’m constantly in pain,” she said. “Unfortunately it doesn’t warrant much medical merit right now, because many doctors will write it off as hyper-sexuality."
Dr. Robert Echenberg, a gynecologist and founder of Pennsylvania’s Institute for Women in Pain, says many women are misdiagnosed and tell the women they should be blessed. "Blessed"? These guy have to be morons. If I was having 100 orgasms a day, I would have something cut-out or blocked somehow. It would drive me crazy. What else would you have time to do? How could you possibly leave the house?
Dr. Echenberg said "PGAD needs to be considered in the context of chronic pelvic pain—an issue that 20 percent of reproductive-aged females experience at some point. This disorder was introduced to the medical world in a 2001 study by the late Sandra Leiblum, a pioneer in modern sex th... Waldinger and other experts have since concluded that PGAD is a neurological disorder stemming from the pudendal nerve, the biologically crucial sensory neuron that triggers arousal." It's impossible for me to believe this is just being found out. What did women do before this?
Ms.Ramsey, you have my sincere condolences and anyone who makes fun of you is a fool. Ms. Ramsey also says "there’s nothing she can do but pray that more women who think they have PGAD will tell their doctors so that the medical world will give the disorder the serious attention it deserves.” I agree. This disease could easily make someone consider suicide and no one even knows it exists. I hope it gets some publicity to help the Ms. Ramsey's of the world find a way to cope.
I wrote this over a month ago and didn't publish this, I wish I had. This woman, Ms. Ramsey has committed suicide. From the pain and the shame, this poor woman killed herself over something that seems like a joke. But this was no joke, and I pity any woman (or man for that much) who would have this happen to them. RIP Ms. Ramsey~
