Not feeling too good

Sunday, February 21, 2010

Not sure what's going on with me, but my tummy hasn't been happy the last few days for some reason. Granted I do have acid reflux and a nasty version of IBS (I get lightheaded and dizzy and nearly pass out whenever I have a flare up), but over the last week, or thereabouts, I just have not been feeling well. It doesn't seem to matter what I eat I don't feel right after I've eaten it, nausea is a definite, so is an incredible amount of gas, and I've had some random cramping as well. *sigh*

Anyway...I wanted to talk about the good stuff today! :)

I have been incredibly lucky, all of my life (no exaggeration) I have been overweight or morbidly obese, it made me a social hermit for most of my adult life. I never had a boyfriend until I was 38 (and he married me!! Yay!) and rarely had any friends, but I've had exceptional health - great blood pressure, good cholesterol, good blood sugar levels, etc - until the IBS stuff a few years ago that is.

I've rarely been on unemployment, and when I have it wasn't for very long - until this recession hit and combined with a bad IBS issue that lasted longer than my FMLA did, now I've been unemployed since 8/31/2009 and I haven't had an interview since early November. But my hubby works and between him and my UC we're doing OK.

Hmmm what else...I'm feeling a little lazy with my blog today, seems to be on the odd/random side. LOL


Mostly good health
Incredible husband
Supportive friends
Reading more and more (thank goodness)
Seeing more movies than ever before (aka getting out of the house)
Enjoying playing a modern day Donna Reed-type for my hubby
Planning a move to San Diego (within the next year or so, waiting for a few things to come together first)
Looking to go back to school and complete my bachelor's degree (finally!)
Good cook (if I do say so myself)

I think I'm good for now, maybe I'll post more later, but I'm not feeling awesome so I might go take a nap.

Happy Sunday!

Christine :)

    What a good way to summarize what is happening in your life. I'm taking notes, I tend to be "all or nothing". Your post shows me that there can be ups and downs but there are always things to plan for and be excited about.....
    Thank you for your post today.
