Well, I woke up this morning, still sick as a dog. The only thing that was better than last night was that my fever had broken over night. YAY.
But, I spent the whole attempting to do things. First task, get some food into my body. I was out of Saltine crackers, so I grabbed a flour tortilla, because I didn't have the strength to stand and wait for bread to toast up. So, I ended up eating about half of the tortilla, and then felt really sick, and full, so I gave up. This all happened around 11:30am or so. Then, about 3 o'clock, I mustered up the courage to venture into the kitchen yet again. This time, I made myself some toast, put just a little bit of butter on them, and spent about an hour nibbling on that... I was quite thankful that I managed to eat two whole slices of bread.
Um, next task of the day was to finally go down my driveway and get my mail from yesterday. That was one of the more frustrating parts of today. I managed to change out of my pajama top, into a more presentable t-shirt, and then had to lay down in the fetal position for about 15 minutes, before pulling on my sweatpants. After the sweatpants, it was back in the fetal position for another 10 minutes or so, and then finally, I was able to get my shoes and a jacket on. I made it all the way out to the living room, and had to sit down, because my stomach was in SOOO much pain. Anyway, after the little break in the living room, I was able to make it outside for the first time since Friday night, and trudged down my driveway to the mailbox.
I was really excited when I finally got back into the warmth of my bed, mail in hand!
My final, and most daunting task that I needed to achieve was to eat something that didn't consist of just starch. My opponent: Ramen Noodles. Thankfully, I only used a little over half of the seasoning packet, instead of the whole thing, and I think that helped a lot. I am very proud to say that I was successful in this endeavor. I can't believe it, but I've taken my first step towards eating real food again!
The most frustrating part of my day today was that every time I got up out of bed, my stomach would start hurting so bad that I couldn't even make it 4 steps without doubling over in pain. It was so upsetting that I couldn't even have the strength or ability to go to the corner drug store and get medicine for myself. I just felt helpless. :(
I miss my husband.
Hopefully, I will wake up in the morning feeling a ton better, and then I can finally get that shower that I so desperately need!!
much love to all!
