What a Weird Weekend-Why I Stopped Writing my Last Blog Post
Posted Sep 06 2011 12:53am
As I was working on my last post, my whole body started falling apart. I got dizzy, nauseous, paranoid and anxious all at once. I thought it was because I drank way to much coffee, or because I was bringing up old memories, but that was not the case. I think I was just sick. I took a nap and when I woke up I felt even worse. I had a splitting headache and cold sweats. The rest of the evening was horrible and then eventually I went to bed. I thought if I went to sleep I would overcome whatever I had, but I was wrong.
I woke up Saturday afternoon with an even worse headache. As the afternoon progressed, the pain and nausea continued to grow. My mind would not work- I was paranoid and frustrated that I still had a headache. So I sat on the couch and watched TV all afternoon, hoping that the headache would pass. Around 5:00pm I forced myself to leave the apartment in search of food. There is a teriyaki place nearby and I picked up a chicken and vegetable combo, which was a mistake because I ended up getting food poisoning. My headache was still present; I was beyond nauseous and frustrated that my mind was falling apart. I passed the time by watching old Marilyn Monroe films, which helped to take my mind off my problems. By 10:00pm the nausea was uncontrollable, so I ran to the bathroom and started throwing up. It wasn’t just a small vomit, it lasted for a few minutes and when I was done I still felt like shit. I spent the next few minutes cleaning up, yelling at the walls because I was frustrated, angry and depressed that I felt so bad. After cleaning up the bathroom, I took a shower and went to bed.
Sunday was a lot better. Unfortunately, I was still pale and slightly nauseous. I spent the afternoon watching the British show Downton Abbey, which is an amazing show and one that everyone should experience. My evening was quiet and by the time I went to bed I was feeling a lot better. After my “great” weekend, I slept in and awoke mid-afternoon. Whatever was plaguing my body had finally left, but my weekend was ruined.
That is why I abruptly stopped writing my last blog post.
