Me and My Toilet
Up late tonight, feeling very nauseous and have managed only to throw up once, but lying down makes it worse, which tells me it's not The Headache causing the nausea, but The Belly. I tried introducing some food today into my diet and think perhaps The Belly isn't really ready for food.
My friend The Toilet and I have been busy getting reacquainted this week. The Belly just is not cooperating with anything. I am very extremely tired, but because The Belly hurts worse when I lay down I am not getting much sleep.
The Headache calmed down and has been behaving its self. Which is good news, because The Belly and The Headache both at once at extreme levels of ouchiness was almost too much for me. I'm feeling down this weekend. I am so tired and I have been so excited that The Headache is semi-behaving itself and going back to work and then BAM something else happens. This is my eighth year of BAMtastic health, and I am worn out. I guess I should be thankful that I do not have fatal ailments or completely disabling conditions (although my family says I should give up and try for disability).
I just don't know how many more bizarre problems I can bear to have. One thing breaks after another. I feel like Einstein looking for the unified field theory - surely there must be one overriding ailment that is causing all of this, but there probably isn't. I fear that my health issues are becoming so complicated that they will become an impossible tangle of interwoven symptoms and treatments that just feed off of each other, and I will get caught in an even worse tangle of specialists than I have currently.
I've lost a bit of weight this week which is a bright spot when you can't eat anything. Fasting is one sure way to kick off a weight loss plan. Just 10 more pounds to lose before I get back to my pre-steroid pre-hemicrania continua weight. Yeah!
