I've been very ill lately, the long and short of it is that I got some sort of wierd stomach bug last week that has wreaked complete havoc on my digestive tract over the past several days. It's astounding when I think about it, I've eaten (and kept down)
in the past three days what the average person consumes in an average meal. I've dehydrated myself and gotten weak and dizzy from simply standing up too quickly. All in all I've felt like four sacks of shit with a side of smashed assholes. I'm not kidding, this thing was terrible. I won't go into details, but suffice it to say, I've drank half a bottle of Pepto Bismol (feels stomach lurching yet again) in the past 18 hours. I had a reasonable dinner earlier (a simple vegetable plate from Country's) and though it is still feeling like schrapnel in my stomach, I'm keeping it down. The chamomile tea is also helping soothe my angry tummy. Okay, enough of that.
Still reading through my lj_abuse
stuff, so bear with me erin
- I'm a few days behind on covering documentation, but I'll have the brunt of next week to myself to devote more time to it. I'm mostly finished, save for the last bits, and am going to reread the entirety of it so as to have it fresh in my mind. That and I hope a reread will put it all into better perspective.
I feel very weak and shaky, but my strength will come back in a day or so and I'll feel closer to 100% by the end of the week. I'm still excited about the weekend, Damien's best friend Brian is coming into town to spend the day with us on Saturday and then we're headed to Atlanta on Sunday morning.
By the way, all of you should be as lucky as I am to have the sweetest, cutest, most attentive and otherwise wonderful man in the entire world for a partner as I have in Damien. I swear, he amazes me with his kindness almost every day. He's also funny as hell when he's not trying to be. When I told him today that he deserves much better than me, he agreed very stoically with "Yeah, that's true"
and I laughed out loud for the first time in a week.
For some reason or other, I've been thinking a great deal about my friend arie
over the past few days, so wherever you are my sweetie I hope you're safe and well. I keep you in my thoughts and send you good energy. If you're up to it, come to Pride on Sunday and I'll see you there!
Kisses and hugs for all who need them tonight...
