i wish the flu would just go AWAY. sheesh.

as if you TRULY wanted to know, here's the cycle:

- i feel fine.
- i get hungry.
- i eat.
- approx 1/2 later, i feel like i need to vomit.
- a giant lump seems to force its way up my esophagus.
- no vomiting actually occurs (i've never been a thrower upper.)
- eventually, the lump goes back down to my belly, where...
- it mixes with my angry stomach, forming a GIANT mass of gas.
- much tummy gurgling occurs and my stomach feels like it's extended way past its capacity, causing great pain.
- intense pain moves its way downward, until it releases itself from my anus with such force that i could power a small boat across a lake.

i even skipped school today, which is a wonder for me. i felt good for a moment, went to clean the kitchen, and was hit with a random EW smell from some... thing... which sent me back into the living room, away from the EW, before even Ewer happened.

so much to freaking DOOOO so much to accomplish!!! and here i sit.. with a lump in my chest that will eventually turn to deadly gas for all.

gaw, i'm hot. hawt, even.

massive projects needed to be done for friday for both of my classes. i need to practice my music, dagnabbit, before i provide to be an embarassment to all (ben). i need to pay bills. i need to bring mom her mommy's day presents. i need to clean my desk, the kitchen, the livingroom, my bedroom. i need to dye my freaking hair, all the silver hairs are revealing themselves, showing just how old i really am.

dumb digestive system.

oh, and in reading my last post, i realize it made it sound as if it was my three year anniversary with livejournal, but it was actually my three year anniversary of moving to washington from arizona ;) because i've actually been on livejournal for over five!

Try only drinking soup broth, water, or watered-down gatorade, and maybe munching on some saltines for the next 24 hours to let your system stabilize. Then slowly reintroduce solid food with like pasta without sauce or chicken noodle soup after that. It should make it easier on you.

Hear Hear.

When you re-introduce solid food you might want to ease into it by implementing the BRAT diet: Bananas, Rice, Applesauce and Toast. That'll be gentle to your digestive system for a bit.

I also reccomend mint, ginger and if you can get it, fennel tea for the gasses.

Yanno? Never heard of the BRAT diet - I really need to write this stuff down.

I'm also always aalll over the mint for any and all reasons! Mint tea, that is. Thanks for reminding me, I have some peppermint tea to drink!

you're system might really enjoy a sugar cleanse at this point, its always helpful for any digestive problems! I'd also suggest acidophullus.
I was going to suggest we hang out today, but with... all things considered.. I figured you might not want to run around in my car, drinking coffee drinks and singing loudy along with ipod.
Maybe if I remember to go buy more acidophullus I'll drop some by.

I still need to do a sugar cleanse. I mean, with the NutriSystem stuff, there's some sugar involved, but it's all the .. better sugar.

If I would only stick to the stupid diet. All it took was cheating once and I've never been solid again.

*hugs* Hoping you feel better soon, though I had to laugh at your "power a boat" analogy. That totally cracked me up.
Apr. 26th, 2006 06:38 pm (UTC)
where as I just imagined what a poo powered boat would do to the lake....
Apr. 26th, 2006 06:39 pm (UTC)
Well, you have something that collects the poo and turns it into methane for further boat powering. :)
Apr. 26th, 2006 06:51 pm (UTC)
I suppose I was imagine something powered by... force rather than combustion.
Apr. 26th, 2006 06:57 pm (UTC)
Well, but see, the combustion engine hypothetically takes the force and converts it to usable energy. Sort of like dramas harness the power of water!

I should work for the government. ;)

I'm experiencing similar digestive difficulty, but the other half.

I need to get myself a real doctor.
Apr. 26th, 2006 07:37 pm (UTC)
That sounds suspiciously like Acid Reflux honey... get the to a doc and see if there is anything they may be ablw to give you to help!
Jun. 4th, 2007 03:51 am (UTC)
It's been over a year and I still haven't gotten myself to one of them doctor people. I'm so hoping that I will get full time and benefits with my new position, as the girl who is leaving has that.

And a payraise, of course. I know that the benefits are SPENDY - I miss Arizona where I would either spend $25 a month or get them free since I don't have kids or spouses, so $80 a month seems atrocious, especially with such a giant deductible.

Hope you feel better soon! *hugs and get-well soon vibes*

"intense pain moves its way downward, until it releases itself from my anus with such force that i could power a small boat across a lake."

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Funniest thing I've read all day :-)

And now that I'm doing NutriSystem, I get what they call on the boards "the NutriToots", or after eating what I call their Blueberry Fluffins....

Well, you get the point.

I just love that I work with coworkers that are so candid about such things. At least, the women oddly are - the men never talk about it!

I know this has nothing to do with anything, but how do you get animated userpics? I want a couple to impress my friends. lol.

This has little to do with what you're going through: I hope that you feel better soon and I also hope that you use this time off as a time to get back to yourself and pamper yourself. You have no idea how much that helps sometimes!

Re: hey
Ha, sorry I never responded to this! I see that you've figured it out by now... ;) I never learned how to make them meself, but am a very good ganker!

Life only gives you what you can handle
Sweetie I know it's been a long time and we've fallen out of touch but I've been reading your live journal for awhile and I thought it was a good time to pop my head in and remind you how loved you are and respected you are. I'm so sorry for Jessie's loss and mom is in my prayers but most of all I want you to stop and take stop and remember what courage and faith you had to leave Arizona and head back up to Vancouver. I'm very proud of you and know you can do anything you set your mind to.

I love you!
