All the worst things happen when you're alone [Jul. 21st, 2008|02:12 am]
[Current Mood |exhaustedexhausted]

I was going to bed early. Honest.

My body has other ideas. Or rather, other plans for extracting as many fluids as possible.

At least I am now keeping down the fluids I'm drinking. But between the shaking sweats triggered by exertion as minimal as walking around, and that lovely, non-vomitous method of violent alimentary extraction [*ahem*], I am finding no horizontal refuge.

And my skin itches like a bitch - the joys of mild dehydration. My piteous contortionary moves are no match for that irritated patch of skin in the middle of my back, despite all my attempts to apply moisturizer.

I am scheduled to join friends in wedding site reconnaissance tomorrow morning. I cavalierly assured one of them that surely I would be up to meadow tromping and building inspection by morning.

I begin to have my doubts. A fact that fills me with dismay.

It's a pity that dismay lacks nutritive substance, as I no doubt would not be filled with it for long this evening.

I'm going to try again to sleep.

You could squidge the moisturizer onto a stiff plastic sheet (like a cutting board sheath or something) and then mash it onto the spot?

Good luck with the sleep. Eric's sick too, and we were kinda blaming something in Thursday's night's food? But it's Sunday.

I am so sorry. That sounds truly awful.

I hope you're feeling better soon.

I think that given your unlucky ickiness, and my aching ribs, we should skip bellydance tonight. Dance while feeling unpleasant isn't fun. Stay home and get yourself better!

I literally just dragged myself off the bed to send you an email that I wasn't up to it tonight. I'm totally a mess at this point - I went and did the errands, and it ate me up completely. I am settling in for some mindless TV and an early bedtime.

Sounds like a good idea to me! I think I'll do the same. I'm sure we'll both be the better for a good night's sleep. :)

applesauce, crackers, bananas, dry cereal, and rice (esp. rice) are all recommended items to start eating when the throwing part stops. They give some bulk to help slow the "evacuation", without triggering the throwing again.

Hope you feel LOTS better, real soon.

Hope you get over this soon.
