Started feeling better – better enough to use my humor to work through the graphic details of my surprising bout with tummy sickness. Thanks for the get well wishes BCs. Hugs! They made a HUGE difference to my attitude and encouraged me to take my days step by step and to let my body work things out with as much rest, liquid and compassion as possible. Hey, not a bad way to live MOST days, eh?
I’m very weak, but feeling MUCH more like myself. I might drive down to the park and walk a little today to try and build my energy back up. If not, I’ll at least wear clothes instead of jammies today. Feeling like perking up. Danger is in doing too much. Body takes time to recover after a bout like this one. But if I am patient, body WILL snap back fairly quickly. Still not hungry at all, though the nausea is much abated. Good thing I made a big bowl of white rice yesterday. A good all purpose tummy meal. I’m really starting to like the all natural ginger ale Mark bought me too. It’s MEANT to be used as mixer with rum or bourbon (*blech* doesn’t sound good AT ALL), but as a stand alone ginger drink, pretty refreshing and does make my tummy feel more quiet.
How about you?
Please feel free to comment on MY statuses or add YOUR OWN thoughts, feelings, challenges, rants and raves on these pages too. That was one of the original purposes of why I posted on FB. I thought BCs might like to share about THEIR days. So if you have thoughts and feelings you’d like to share with the group, go ahead and put them here with your comments.
*Daily statuses are not part of the blog’s email notification. When you enter your email under where it says SUBSCRIBE TO POSTS VIA EMAIL, you will be notified of regular blog posts and when podcast episodes are released. I didn’t want to clog your inbox with my daily statuses. However, the automatic publicize feature will inform you on my show FB page, my AdventureLaurie twitter account, google+ on its show page, and Tumblr.
PSS, some BCs have asked me the difference between blog postings and status pages. Blog postings are where I develop a complete topic triggered by my status thoughts. Status thoughts are how my day went, what’s on my agenda, and how my body feels today – and not much editing or thought goes into them. That’s why I don’t clog up your email with them. 🙂
