A Little Unwell

I was sick, again, Wednesday evening at work. I had been fine all day and then suddenly I was not fine. Then, probably should be going to the ER, not fine. It  was bad. Brutal. Honestly? I do not think I have ever been as sick as I was. I literally called my Mom sobbing from being in extreme pain. What was worse? I was stuck at work.

I was okay the next day, although I went to the walk in after I got done work. I was diagnosed with a stomach virus, but both my Mom and I suspect that I had a gallbladder attack as I have had bad stomach pains before, after eating fatty/greasy meals. Prior to getting sick on Wednesday, I had eaten lunch at Burger King. Of course with a problem gallbladder, it only is inflamed during an actual attack, so it was back to normal size by the time I saw a doctor…so now my Mom made me promise that I would avoid greasy food and if I did start getting those stomach pains like I have in the past…to go to the ER then and there and get checked out.

So now I’m cautious about what I eat. Silverlining…when I weighed myself Friday (after not eating since Wednesday afternoon), I discovered I lost 5 pounds.

Mentally, I’ve been out of sorts all weekend as well. Part of it I’m sure was fear of having another attack (did I mention the excruciating pain?) and part of it was the fact it was Mother’s Day and I felt homesick and all sorts of conflicted about the holiday. And probably the fact the weather, aside from today, has been fairly miserable didn’t help matters. 

Hubby and I are in the process of working on a project though, so when we get the details ironed out I’ll be reveling some info on it. It should be good and I’m excited about it.

  1. Oh my gosh I hope you are okay! That sounds awful! I have to avoid fast food a lot of the time also because it gives me bellyaches.
    Also how did you post this on May 12? Are you from the future? I am writing this on May 11!

  2. So sorry to hear that you were not well….glad you are feeling better! And I hope that the weather brightens up so that it brings you warmth and happiness. It must be hard to be far from home. Hope that you have a good week with your project! Nicole xo

  3. That’s not a good way to lose weight! If that is your problem, I hope you can either avoid aggravating it, or get it properly diagnosed and treated.

  4. Attacks like this are always so scary!! I have kidney stones and it’s always on my mind. I am always worried I will have a flare!!

    I hope you are feeling better!!
