For those of you just about to eat, or just eaten, you’ll be pleased to know this is a way less graphic blog than yesterday. Way less drama and way less trauma. Just a girl (or middle aged wummin) on her couch ALL day with her dogs.
I have not moved. That’s actually a blessing as it means I haven’t been running anywhere today. I’ve not been sick since 5am yesterday morning I’ve had more melon and some veggie sausages this morning. All seems calm. I don’t feel like eating anything else. But that’s ok.
I still feel rotten but nothing like yesterday. A hot water bottle all evening seemed to bring the stomach cramps to an end. I slept for 7 hours straight and Craig decided to sleep on the couch to keep away from me.
That may not have paid off for him….. he’s currently curled up in bed having hot flushes and shivers.
Maybe it wasn’t the stale water I drank. It must be a bug.
I’m still really dizzy, my head is still thumping, my stomach and back muscles are sore from all of yesterdays yawning in technicolour… I pinched that from somewhere… sounds way better than retching though eh?! 🤣🤣 but the worst that’s happened today has been a whole lotta hiccups.
There’s always been a pupper close at hand for cuddles.
She’s actually snoring.
So I don’t have much else to report from my couch. Oooh I did have a shower. I know that doesn’t sound like much but when I was off sick with my anxiety and depression, showering was a huge effort and one that I forgot to do on a regular basis. It means a lot to me that even when I feel rotten with this stomach bug, I still remember to shower. It’s the small wins. (My autocorrect typed wind there…. I smiled).
Oh the other big win is that I’ve lost 5lbs. Always look on the bright side.
This has been a very rough few days but I think the worst of it is over. It’s such a relief not to have that dreadful fear all the time. When you’re sick like that you feel so scared and alone and terrified. Terrified at being so out of control.
I must remember that if Craig is sick. 🤔😬🤭 not sure I’m quite ready for that…. As she hiccups. And again. I make myself laugh as I write this. The hiccuping stops. I’ve got this.
Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️♥️
