I hate being sick.
So there are lots of posts I have been meaning to do this week considering we get our house next week and I’ve had my braces for over a month. But the inspiration is long gone.
Sicker than I have been since I lived on Humphrey St. and ended up in the hospital dehydrated.
I thought yesterday was the worse of it. I was nauseous all day and couldn’t sit up because of the spins. I was running to the bathroom. I felt slightly better in the evening. In that I actually moved out to the couch and sat up for a bit. I kept drinking gatorade and had 2 pieces of toast. I took 2 gravol and went to bed. Only to wake about an hour later with a knotted stomach and that gross feeling. I ran to the bathroom. Fended it off and went back to sleep. But I was up 15 min later. I don’t know how I’m going to stay hydrated since my body won’t retain anything!
I didn’t get to sleep at all last night, unless you count the small cat naps while leaning on the porcelain god and between trips running to the bathroom. I debated sleeping on the couch so I would stop disturbing J but that didn’t help. He couldn’t sleep. On one trip to the bathroom I see him sitting on the couch at an ungodly hour playing MarioKart and farting around on the laptop.
As we speak right now, I just finished a popsicle and now I feel the sweats coming on. That is never a good sign. I am going to see if J will pick me up some gingerale so I can flatten it. I know he will. He’s been so good to me. I decided yesterday that I wanted a specific popsicle, real fruit ones strawberry flavour, and he went everywhere looking for them. No where to be found we decided on the rocket ones I loved when I was a kid. They are made with real fruit juice now so that is kind of what I wanted.
All I know is that today better be it. I need/want to get back to work. I have the walk-through of our house tomorrow and there is no way I’d be going anywhere near it if I felt like this. J will have to go it alone. And that would really suck! So my fingers are crossed that by later today I’ll be on the mend.
I am going to try to head for a clinic this afternoon just to see what they say. I know what they are going to say but if this isn’t gone or if I have to be in seclusion for a bit I’ll need a note from a Dr. But God, I hope it doesn’t come down to that! I want to be better. I want to be back in my normal routine!
that really sucks, like the worse hangover ever minus an actual night of drinking. hope u get better soon!
Hey Laura, give pedialyte a try (the stuff for kids). I heard before that it is a lot easier to keep down than gatorade and still helps to balance your electrolytes when you are sick. I figure it is worth a shot and it is supposed to be great to avoid dehydration.
I hope you are feeling better soon! It sucks that you are feeling so sick. I hope taht you are well enough to go on teh walk through.
feel better soon. i heard gatorade brings on dehydration but im not sure its true…what did the clinic say….u need to get better soon, the house is so close
Really?! The Dr and nurses always tell me to drink it because it’s filled with those precious electrolytes your body needs after being sick. It’s just like pedialyte, except tastes a little better. Even though Pedialyte goes down easier on your stomach I hear. But as long as you can see through the liquid it’s ok to drink when sick. I think it’s ok as long as you don’t stop drinking water too.
