playing with words

My insides were revolting.  The fun thing about that sentence is that it means two very distinct, if similar things.  The less fun thing about that sentence is that from Sat - yesterday either meaning was applicable to my life.  I got sick while I was on vacation which is just no good.

Saturday afternoon I was cranky enough that my boyfriend suggested a nap, which I took him up on.  When I woke up I had diarrhea, and an hour or so later I started throwing up.  I threw up five times that night, interspersed with continuing bathroom issues.  I swear by the time I went to bed I was empty.  Sunday I was still nauseous and didn't eat much, but no more throwing up, however the runs continued.  By Monday I was eating again, albeit carefully, still with the runs and my period with all of its lovely cramping started.  That pattern then continued for one more day.

I still don't know why I got sick.  The short time frame would seem to suggest food poisoning but literally everything I ate on Saturday someone else at the house also ate and no one else got sick.  The last spot of divergence is Friday night almost 24 hours before hand.  The muscle aches suggest flu, but if so it was short.  I was also: in altitude, pmsing, and had four beers Friday night which is more than usual.  Who knows?  In any case I would like to make my bid for this being my illness for the winter and now I'm done, thanks.

Oh man, that does not sound pleasant at all. Oy. Is it possible you're allergic to something? I don't know if some food allergy would cause all of those symptoms or not but maybe?

I really hope you feel back to 100% soon.

An allergy is an interesting idea, and it could explain why I got sick and no one else did. Hrmmm.

As of yesterday I feel normal again. It's amazing how long it takes to recover.

Bleh! Sick is bad, sick on vacation is worse. Glad it was short-lived!

Me too, at least by Sunday mid-afternoon I was playing board games with people again, even if I was sipping gatorade instead of beer.

I seem to have finally outlived the after effects. Thanks for the kind words.

Ugh, I definitely think you've maxed out your sick quota for the season!

Right? Been there, done that, over. Here's hoping the universe is paying attention.

Yikes! I hope you get back to 100% soon!

My insides finally feel normal again as of yesterday, though I'm still being a bit cautious about what I eat.

Good dispatch and this enter helped me alot in my college assignement. Gratefulness you on your information.
