So sick :(

April 6, 2009 in Akron,All Fired Up,pottery,yoga

So I had a really good weekend. Made sure I spent time focusing on me, but also was able to bring the BF along for a couple things. I really wanted to go paint pottery, and even though yesterday was a beautiful day that should have been spent outside, I asked BF to join me at All Fired Up in Akron to paint! He agreed and away we went! He painted a sushi platter and I painted a sushi plate. This is something that I have never really brought anyone along to do with me, so it was kinda nice that he wanted to go with me. 🙂

About halfway through painting pottery I started having these horrible stomach pains. I did a LOT of yoga this weekend, so I had a feeling it was from strenuous abdominal exercises. It got worse and worse. We made smoked salmon again for dinner, and I could barely eat because I was in so much pain.

In the middle of the night I ended up waking up screaming… like, literally, screaming out in pain. BF tried and tried to make it go away. He used pressure points that are supposed to help with stomach pains, and it helped… temporarily. The pain was so intense that I started to feel like I was going to be sick. I spent most of the night near the bathroom, just in case I was going to throw up. It was awful. I knew I had to be up for work at 6:30, and I couldn’t sleep because the pain and nausea. I had to call in sick to work this morning and I really really did not want to do that. I have a ton of pressure on me at work, but I wasn’t convinced that I could hold it in… and I did NOT want to throw up in the work bathrooms.

It’s early afternoon now and I’m feeling semi-better. I forced myself to eat, but I’m going to hold off on yoga for a few days. Was it the stomach flu? Food poisoning? Bad abdominal pains? I’m pretty sure it might have bee a combination…

Now I’ll be worrying about work all day… sigh. I don’t get paid enough to stress about work when I’m not there.

Sorry to hear of your illness, TW. Nothing worse than stomach pain. Sounds like you felt as bad physically as I did mentally…thanks for the nice note on my blog. I feel better today, and am glad to hear you do, too. And way to go getting the BF to do pottery…sure sign of a quality guy!
