I am so sorry you are feeling so bad. Have you tried going on a liquid diet for a few days to see if it might help? I usually try that for a few days and then slowly start adding things back into my diet. Might help.............

Hope you get feeling better soon.

These are pretty funny...and rather witty most of the time.

I agree on the liquid diet. Try finding some things to help soothe your frame of mind as well like a good book or music that you like. Make sure and take time out for just YOU, you know??

When I feel as you do...Sometimes I force myself out in the sun. I sit or stand for a few minutes. I look at everything with all senses. I see the quail running, I see the hummingbirds perform in the air, I look at the flowers and all the bees that are busy with them. I cheers me up for a bit...and gives me something to hold on when I feel real down (as in pain, the V&D, and drained)...
I hope this helps...
