I'm sick. Seriously? WHY!?!?!?!

Monday, June 18, 2012

SO I have many theories on this one.

After dealing with a sick baby all week, TOM rolled into town and slammed me with massive back cramps Friday night. Typically my back cramps go away after a decent nap or a good nights sleep but no way Jose not happening this week. My first theory was my bump in Flax seed consumption. I bumped it on Saturday from 1TBS to 2TBS and I noticed some abdominal discomfort. Yesterday ignoring the discomfort I felt Saturday I proceeded again with 2TBS.

Then I baked some cookies for Bryan for father's day. Triple chocolate peanut butter cookies. I scarfed down 1 from each batch as it came fresh out of the oven. 3 Cookies I haven't baked anything since I started sparking in March. I used to bake almost daily. So My tummy started to hurt and I yelled at myself "what did you expect dummy eating those cookies like that." I thought maybe my stomach can't handle this kind of sweet excess anymore.

Then we took the kids out to play it was nice and sunny out. We went to the duck pond but forgot the bread so that got boring really fast. We brought the Frisbee and so we went a little further so the kids could play Frisbee while I ran on the track. I ran 12 laps (not realizing I needed 12.5 laps for my 5k BLARG!) it was hot and Bryan moved my water bottle from the side of the track to place unknown, so I ran with out water until the end where I guzzled water like the end of the world. I ran all but 2 laps YAY ME!! I wanted to barf somewhere around lap 4 so I walked it then I ran until lap 12 and walked it as my cool down lap. When I was finished and had drank a bunch of water I still wanted to puke ( I run in the morning I will never again run in the afternoon it's awfully hot!) I thought maybe I have some heat exhaustion. I don't know. I felt bad but good at the same time I was so happy to have run but the nausea was killing me by the time we got home.

When we got home I had to make dinner. I didn't feel good. Cooking sounded awful so Bryan suggested sandwiches. OK! Sandwiches pulling out the tomatoes cutting them and lettuce etc I snarf down 2 more cookies. 5 FRIGIN COOKIES TOTAL!!! (Note I absolutely tracked all cookies eaten!) and my stomach already hurt WTF! We made and ate the sandwiches and my stomach just kept getting worse and worse. I wished I could make my self vomit. I stood over the toilet visualizing it for at least 30 minutes wishing it would happen but not being able to stick my finger down my throat. The pain moved into my kidney region. I was miserable.

I called my dad for fathers day. I called my mom hoping to take my mind off things but nothing happening. Theora refused to go to bed until almost 11 and then she took up my whole side of the bed. Somehow I fell asleep only to wake up at 2 in massive pain I walked around I drank some water I went to lay on the couch. I slept on and off until everyone got up for school. I felt ok until I tried to drink some coffee instant misery. I laid back down at about 8 am and slept until almost 2. I just ate an apple with some peanut butter and my stomach is grinding away. Someone said maybe my flax seeds were going rancid or maybe I got what the baby had, but she never showed signs of pain she's been pretty normal and happy just exploding with grossness.

So I don't know... Was it increased/rancid flax, was it overload on sweets, was it mini heat exhaustion, is it something related to baby sickness? Who knows all I know is, I AM MISERABLE!! I am so hungry but the thought of cooking or eating is the worst thought in the world I want to lay in a ball and not move until this passes.

    People suggested ginger, it works really well for me too, for tummy ache AND nausea, that's always what I get (ginger tea) when I'm sick.
    I hope you feel better soon, being that sick is damn awful :(

    Get some ginger, hot water and make some tea out of it!

    Yes, I think your stomach is simply not used to that kind of food.

    try to eat some pretzels, If you like to nibble something :)

    Hop you feel better soon!!

    Ginger ale (even ginger cookies) or chicken broth and saltine crackers always helps my tummy feel better. It might be a combination of all, but since it started with your baby being sick all week, it's probably a grown up version of that. Hope you feel better soon.

    I don't know what to tell you, other than hoping that you start feeling better soon!

    emoticon , That sucks. Hope you feel better soon. Maybe it was just a combo of everything. Or your body just saying, take a break please. Either way, just relax and hope passes soon.

    that sounds horrible! i vote that you drink a bit of coke and eat some pretzels. that's what i do with an upset stomach. i know coke isn't good, but it's the only thing that helps me, and considering that you can't really eat at the moment, it might help to get some electrolytes into your system...
