as some of you know i have not been feeling well lately, and apparently gave it all to you!!! (i really home you girls are feeling better).
(first time i posted a smiley face, what is with the smurf, and the dude doing a lude dance?) [see below]
anyway--i have found little relief.
last night before bed i was washing my face and puked in the sink! not a whole body, wretching, nasty puke--no, i just opened my mouth! well, i then ran to get a hug from my husband and tell him of my new trick, and realized i needed to blow my nose--Low and Behold there was tomato soup in my nose!!! so apparently now my food comes back out any orifice it deams necessary without any warning to me! so after a night of this (the nose thing only happened that one time) "this" being, lots of pooping (not diarrhea mind you--poo and lots of it, like i have been storing it for years) and my new "puke" trick, tingling in my limbs, AND stinky farts ( I left the room, usually i only leave the room when the dog or my husband farts--i can stand my stink), i woke up this morning with so much pain, and lots more poo to be unleashed, a headache, AND i am starving. what is a girl to do? so i am having tea and plan on eating broth and rice today, and working from home. what is sad is that i have had these days before (not the puke, nose, stinky fart thing...) but the stabbing pains, like i ate knives, and the tremendous amounts of waste--i don't know how much longer i can take this!! (do not fear--that was not a dangerous "i am going to harm myself" statement, just a cry out of desperation)
i keep a food journal, but i can't find what is different... unless this is all delayed reactions... I started taking Digestive Advantage, I take Acidophilus, a multi-vitamin, the pill, Tylenol when i have pain, Lactaid when i have dairy, and Nulev when necessary (hysocomine--don't feel like remembering how to spell it--helps cramping.) I am off wheat and gluten--though i find out tomorrow if i have Celiac, and i limit dairy and fats. BUT i have had a bit more dairy lately--but with the lactaid and i usually have a immediate reaction to dairy, not hours and hours later... and i have worked out the stress i was having with work i don't feel worried about anything so i don't think this is stress related.
i just want some relief-- oh to be normal...
thanks for listening, i hope everyone is having a great day...
what would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?
