Well scarred I do hope you feeling at least a bit better now! Nothing is worse than "hugging the porcelain God" To me that's just about as bad as it gets!! with my disc's I get the electric shocks and needle sticks across my chest when doing the wretching routine! But it isn't pleasant no mater what the circumstances! So I do hope your much much much better now!
Wishing YOU only the Best!
