It’s probably a bad idea to spend so much time looking at pictures of food when I’m still stuck on a fluid only diet (which is better than the water only diet I was on previously)…but I was going through my bookmarks and I have so many things I want to make when I finally go home.
WOAH WOAH WOAH! Can't believe you've been so poorly- I wish there was something I could do to help. Make sure you're taking it easy please? Also, you make an excellent elephant but I hope that tube isn't there too much longer love! x
Nor can I, it was a bit unexpected! Nothing you can do, not much I can do tbh. I’m taking it easy as, pretty much sleeping 70% of the time and watching Sherlock/ Doctor Who the rest of it. Trying not to think about all the work I have to do still. The tube is my friend, it stops me from throwing up all the things although I am beginning to go a little crazy cos I haven’t eaten anything since Thursday afternoon! That’s apparently a thing you can just do when the digestive system packs in, fun as it sounds. Thank you for the message my dear. xx
Health took a bit of a nosedive this weekend. Perfect timing as per usual.
What it turns out to have happened: I got a gut adhesion, happened because of the surgery I had back in September 2011. My intestines are all like YOU SHALL NOT PASS.
What I got diagnosed with before that: “it’s food poisoning, here have some strong painkillers”, “it’s gall stones, here have some anti-biotics and anti-emetics”, “it’s appendicitis, have fun with that”.
I realised I had to go into hospital after I started to throw up water and pills. The past couple of days went past in a blur of morphine and feeling crap and I had an NG tube fitted. Here is my finest elephant impression:
Just saying, having an NG tube inserted whilst conscious - 0/10 would not endure again.
So things are beginning to look up and hopefully I won’t have to have another laparoscopy to fix this. Got my exams in 2 weeks so I’m really quite worried about that but just gonna try and push through I guess. Damn it body you have rubbish timing!
Woke up this morning feeling like my brain was trying to claw it’s way out via my eyes. Last night was a good night but my hangovers seem to have taken a turn for the excessive.
Was woken up by my mum asking when I was going to walk the dog which I had COMPLETELY forgotten about. So I had 1 hour and 15 minutes to pack my bags, calm my mum down and walk the dog (and also figure out that my brother had forgotten to feed the dog)
It worked out okay in the end. The dog walk helped calm down my hangover, I pretty much had all my shit together from the night before and the tube didn’t decide to take a million years. I’m enjoying myself a lovely first class train ride (I can’t resist, it’s like £2 extra for free wifi, unlimited coffee and an enormous seat)
Just not looking forward to going to work tonight and all the stuff I gotta do tomorrow (fix bike, go to gym, work like crazy and probably a bunch of other stuff too)
I just want some actual holiday! I just can’t because every time I don’t work I end up feeling super guilty. Sigh.
Oh love =( message me? Send your number if you want to chat there instead x
Thanks for the offer. Thing is I have 4 hours of work and about 2 hours to do it in. Once I’ve submitted this fucking thing in whatever condition I can get it to I’ll have a couple moments to cool off. I’m just holding out for that.
My housemate just asked me to unpack some lightbulbs and I reacted by dissolving into crying heap.
I am this close to the edge right now and I feel like utter shit. I want to try to explain myself but I literally don’t have the fucking time.
Somehow today I have to go to work and I have to get my lab report done and not completely break down. And then I have to get up and pick up the next piece of work and carry on doing the same overload of shit tomorrow.
