So Much Pain

Thursday, March 22, 2012

This has been a rough week.
I have managed to get SOME sleep, via piling up stacks of pillows and sleeping on an incline. It’s not comfortable, and I’m not getting ENOUGH sleep, but it’s better than none, like I got Monday night.
It feels like the gall bladder is still in there and making me miserable, I swear it does. And everyone’s got a theory. The most common at the moment is hiatal hernia. All I know is, I feel rotten, and exhausted. I haven’t managed to get a workout in since Sunday, because even when I think I’m going to be OK, I end up feeling crappy or in pain or both. Right now it’s both.
I don’t know what to do.
When I eat, I feel crappy. When I don’t, I feel worse. Coffee hurts something fierce. Gluten-free doesn’t seem to be helping me a whole lot, but then, gluten wasn’t helping, either.
I’m tired.
Here’s your screenshot for yesterday.

All things considered, I really don’t feel I did that badly. I beat some of my goals. I did badly with food. I was still hungry after lunch, and ate a Glutino Cherry Breakfast bar. I was still hungry after dinner, too, and had not only a Klondike 100 calorie bar but also a mug of Cinnamon Chex.
I accomplished very little last night, aside from grocery shopping. And even then, I managed to forget things, that I will now have to go back for. If by some miracle I stop feeling like warmed over butt, I’ll get a workout in tonight, but I wouldn’t put a lot of money on that. Failing that, I’ll make a start on the copper clay.
Sorry. I know this isn’t very motivational or interesting or entertaining. I’m feeling really discouraged and angry and ill, and I’m having no luck trying to make myself not feel that way.
My business minicards came, and they look pretty kick-butt, so I’m pleased about that. I finally got a call back with the answer I needed regarding my taxes, so I can finish them off and file; that’s good news. I’m still waiting on the mortgage pre-approval guy; he was supposed to call me yesterday and didn’t, so I called him today. He was too busy for me, and said he’d call tomorrow. If he doesn’t, I’m going to be pretty PO’ed.
Let’s be fair; I’m pretty PO’ed, now; that’ll just increase the pissy.
Sorry I couldn’t be more upbeat today, folks. Hopefully soon.
Have a good one.

    Thanks, ladies. You have no idea how much I needed that.
    Yes, I have a GI doc, though he had nothing to do w/ the gall bladder; he came along after the fact, once it was gone & I was still getting sick all the time. He's the one who informed me that a good bit of the time, the gall bladder isn't the real issue.
    I saw him 2 weeks ago, but I was fine, then. So fine, in fact, that he recommended that I go off the Nexium. I'd arbitrarily chosen this past Tuesday as the day I was going to do that, but after Monday night... yeah, not happening.
    I'll call his office if it doesn't get better soon. I can't keep going like this for too much longer; it's just too bloody unpleasant.

    Sorry to hear you are feeling so lowsy. You can get through this.

    No apologies! It sounds like you feel downright rotten. I know what that can do to an otherwise gothtastically sunny disposition. emoticon

    I assume you have a GI doc (given the gallbladder issues)? Is anyone giving you ... anything? I can't imagine just waiting to see if something like this passes...

    Sending you lots of healing vibes. Good news about the business cards and taxes!
