As you can see, it's late (well, actually really early-5:25am) here and I'm awake, but not for a usual reason.
I went to get clorox bleach spray out of the cabinet earlier and accidentally sprayed myself. Luckily I had taken my contacts out earlier, and had my glasses on. I ran to the sink and rinsed my mouth out, and cleaned my face off. I tried to spit all of it out and rinsed my mouth over and over because I could smell it so bad, but apparently I did swallow some of it because 4 or so hours later I threw up. I called poison control and they said it's rare for it to take that long for it to make you sick, but given that I have crohn's, it's possible. Luckily I don't need to go to the ER as I obviously didn't ingest very much at all. The guy just said maybe because my system is really sensitive it made me sick...or come to think of it, maybe it's psycosematic?? Maybe from worrying I made myself sick. They just said that as long as things stay the same and I only threw up once, I should be ok. I just have to try to drink gatorade with crushed ice (I don't understand why eating ice would be any better than just drinking water) and crackers and call my GI when they open. So far the crackers and gatorade are staying down! (I've kept them down for an hour)
In about an hour and a half I have to leave for clinicals...I'm going to be SO tired by the time I get home, but luckily no plans tonight so I'll sleep really well right when I get home.
Anyway, if a freak accident is going to happen, it's no surprise that it happens to me. My dad always says "only in Becky's world" when strange things happen. Maybe I should move to someone else's world?!?
