Poor Unfortunate Soul
Exactly 12 hours after my classes ended Monday, I woke up in the middle of the night feeling severely nauseated. Throwing up is one of my least favorite ways to be sick, so I often fight it when I first suspect that it’s coming. However, the only way I can make myself feel better is to get the food out of my stomach.
Since the middle of the night, I have thrown up every few hours. The only things I’ve tried to eat are a banana, and a few saltines. I’ve sipped on water, gatorade, and ginger ale, but none of it has stayed down. I feel fine nibbling and sipping, but within an hour or two, my stomach gets its revenge.
This is probably the most violently sick I’ve been in years. I’m not really able to move about without feeling light-headed. And I’m so, so hungry. The crazy thing about this is how quickly it came on. I can’t help but wonder if it was something I ate yesterday, or a bug I picked up at the community college.
I think I’m going to have to go to the doctor tomorrow morning (if I’m still feeling bad) because I have classes tomorrow and I don’t know if I should go. It’s good because I don’t have classes until 11, so I might feel better by then, but I’ll have time to go to the doctor before.
It really just feels so awful to be in this condition when I don’t know how to fix it.
