Two Words Tuesday: Cramps on the Couch

Posted Jun 04 2013 4:19pm
Heyyy y’all – it’s been a few days…  How was your weekend?  Your Monday?  I’ve been stuck on the couch for the past 48 hours.  I’ve tried sitting in different spots so I don’t make a permanent butt indent in the cushion but I haven’t had much luck.  The indent is definitely there.

Sunday morning my stomach went on the fritz.  I didn’t eat anything new or unusual so I assumed that I caught a little bug.  Then Monday morning I shot out of bed at 2AM due to stabbing pain, similar to the intense abdominal pain that I’ve had in the past .  I couldn’t fall back asleep so went out to the family room and watched TV – there is absolutely nothing on TV at 2AM on a Monday morning.

A few hours later, the pain subsided so I packed lunch for Ryan and myself, ate breakfast, showered, and hopped into my car to go to work.  About 5 minutes from my office the pain struck again – my hands were shaking and I started sweating – making me pull off to the side of the highway.  After the pain passed I contemplated going into the office but ultimately decided to turn around and go home.  The pain is so sporadic and intense that when it hits and all I want to do is curl up into a ball.

Anddd this morning were similar, except I didn’t attempt to go into work.  I called my doctor to see if he had any cancellations but nothing opened up.  I’m hoping that tomorrow morning I feel much better so I can go into work because I’m getting antsy.  And because I’m taking Friday off to finish packing before the movers come Saturday morning.  There’s so much to do and so little time!

Since I kept my computer shut throughout the weekend and the majority of yesterday, I have a few days worth of pictures to share.  Ready, set, photo dump…

P.S.  I’ll post my ZOOMA race recap later this week…  I asked Tracey [the challenge participant who I ran with] to share her story with y’all and she happily agreed – stay tuned.

Question:  What do you do to keep yourself entertained when you’re sick?  I’m getting bored of watching TV, naping, playing sudoku, and getting frustrated with Candy Crush.

Question:  Do you feel guilty when you miss work?  YES!  I’ve been trying my best to keep up with emails, but since I don’t have access to our database at home it’s hard.
