My Life=Glamourous! [Oct. 27th, 2008|10:13 am]
[Current Mood |amusedamused]

Yesterday I had so much pain that I didn't eat much. I boiled a chicken, which is awesome, shredded it and then made THE best chicken n dumplings ever. Craig and I totally enjoyed the day together and the Seahawks actually won for once.

I got all of my bills paid as well. I got to read some of my book, Kushiel's Scion. I don't like Imriel as well as I liked Phedre yet.

I had a nightmare last night about work. I was given a huge number of stickers and told I had to hand them all out to people by 5pm, which made no sense to me. In the dream we had some web animators who took Flash content, published it as .SWF, and then pushed it to their website. They were showing us the process, but my old boss was in a late frenzy and for some reason thought I needed to make people join us and come to see these Flash users. The stickers kept getting mushed together and very messy. I eventually handed them all out. It was a strange dream. The animations they were making looked very cartoony and not realistic.

On the way to work this morning while sitting in traffic I threw up into a paper towel. I hadn't eaten, so I threw up----? Foam of pills I guess? I have learned to drive WHILE puking since I had surgery. Go me. It hurt, but I also was laughing so it was hard to breath. I was laughing at what my life has become. At once so wonderful and so terrible.

I never did mind so much about the little things. ;)

Completely stupid question here, but besides caffeinated beverages, how much liquid do you drink?

I was wondering if some of your tummy troubles and nausea might be related to the fact you're dehydrated; normally we get a ton of water from the food we eat, but not so with you since the surgery. Drop that water and continue with something caffeinated (which dehydrates you) and tummy troubles are sort of the first sign that dehydration is creeping up on you.

Last thoughts: plain water is hard on a stomach that is nauseaus or finicky. Water + nutrients is easier. So Gatorade or water with that Special K protein mix in it would be easier to digest and probably get a few more calories inside you.

I drank 2 big glasses of water before I got sick like that. :( I think it's mostly a medication side effect. It wasn't so bad before I started taking Cymbalta.

I didn't start to really like Imriel until Justice. We'll see if you have the same reaction. Remember, at the point you're at he's still quite young.
