[Journal entry complaining of a cruddy week. Feel free to ignore this post as I’m just griping.]
Last week, Thanksgiving week, was good. I had a great time with family. This week, the travel home and first few days back, has been not good. It started Monday with one of the worst migraines of my life. I’ve only been to the ER/Urgent Care three times in my life for migraines. I’d just deal with it mostly. Monday was number three. That’s how bad it was. We’d had plans to spend that day in Old Town Sacramento but after they injected some stuff into me I went back to my sister’s place and slept the day away.
Tuesday started off fine. I was feeling well and we got all packed up and made it to the airport, through security and to our gate without issue. About boarding time, however, I started to feel unwell. This time it was a heaviness in my stomach and an unquenchable thirst. The flight was uneventful, even pleasant. I got to read a lot, holding Lil’ K in my arms as she slept. After getting our luggage, it took us longer than anticipated for the hotel shuttle to pick us up and take us back to our van. I was now feeling very poorly. I didn’t eat dinner, just had a small smoothy and several cups of water.
The drive back home was uneventful if long. We arrived home at 2:30 am. I drank more water and crashed.
Wednesday I felt nauseous all day. My thirst continued. The only thing I could consume easily was water and watered down apple juice. I went home early from work. Thursday started off much the same, but I did start to feel marginally better. I was able to get through the day and even ate dinner (a small one).
This morning (Friday), my stomach feels fine and I’m not constantly thirsty, but I do have a low grade headache. I was able to have a cup of coffee (for which I’m thankful). We’ll see how today goes.
