Health Update Thursday(11/29)

Boy oh boy, am I sicker than a dog today! 

Apparently last night wasn't my night; I ate some bad corn pudding, woke up around 2am and had to rush to the bathroom, pillow and blanket in hand, and spent the next 3 hours on the bathroom floor. Of course that means I really didn't get much sleep, but once my mom got wind of what happened around 7 this morning, she made me rest. Low and behold, my exhausted, achy self fell alseep and slept until 3pm this afternoon!

Now the corn pudding is just my intuitive guess. The fact that I'm so sick today could be one, two, or a multitude of different things. I haven't really been doing a daily jig as of late anyway, so the bad corn pudding was just icing on that cake.

I should feel lucky and blessed that I've been doing so well the past couple of weeks, especially since I've been able to spend more time at the boyfriend's house, go out shopping with the family, and hang out with friends.

And I REALLY do.

When you're chronically ill and have to live your life day by day, you learn to just take opportunities as they come and deal with everything else later.

Unfortunately, I think 'later' has caught up to me.

On top of everything else, I'm someone who feels they need to stay busy, so I have so many things going on at the moment I can't think straight! That's to my own detriment because I'm a type A personality and I tend to stress out pretty easily, which causes me physical body pain...

I definitely need to take up some meditation and visualization exercises to keep that under control!

A lot of rest, keeping up with my daily stuff, eating right and taking it day by seems to be in my immediate future.
