Gratitude Project 2008

I'm grateful today is about over. Nauseated most of the day. Well, that's an exaggeration. At first I was just achy, exhausted and miserable. Then I ate a small thing. After that I vacillated between nauseated from eating and nauseated from not eating. Blech.

You'd think I had! LOL No, though today I am on my first semi-meal - a strawberry smoothie. I hope it does not bring back the nausea full tilt. Yesterday it started after I had a yummy soft pretzel. Then I was starving for dinner, but I was careful to keep the portions small. ~sigh~ It came back 3 times worse.

Finally, after midnight my stomach settled and I was truly hungry, so I ate some boxed cereal without issue and went to bed.

Got up - and nausea was back with first sip of coffee. So I waited to eat, and instead I drink. PITA

And tomorrow and Sunday, back to work.

eta- the word "think"

Not pregnant - no uterus. Hysterectomy 13 years ago.

Virus I think. Someone on the leadership team of my CUUPs group had/has a similar virus this week and we were together for all of Spiritfest last Saturday.

Nausea worse. Eat pizza later, I hope. :-/

Any food was making it worse. I had the pizza around 7 p.m. No nausea, so we're good for now. It may come back, tongiht or tomorrow, but I'll take any break I can get. And I can drink water now! I was sssoooo thirsty and water made it worse earlier.

Pizza was ordered, thin crust so not much red sauce - I think that helped. :-)

Yes, but only bottled/filtered water. I'll know I'm completely well when I can drink tap again.

AND ... dun dun dun - I ate a whole meal!!! Two hours ago and no nausea! Woot!! Progress. Everything still hurts like mad, but it is a step. :-)

That was Sunday - so it was a beef roast, done from frozen in a slow cooker with salsa, then rice added at the end. It tasted extra yummy because I was *so* hungry!

Then the storm hit, our power went out for 12 hours and the milk in the fridge got warm so we threw away the leftovers to be safe. :-( There was enough for another meal, damnit!
