Looks like I’ll have to see Dr. Google again.

Yesterday I was taken over by what I seemed to think was certain death.  It all started with a few stomach cramps that had me curled up in the bed.  Then I felt queasy.  And I threw up, bowled over in pain, and threw up some more.

I don’t know if it was something I ate or if it was some kind of virus.  I was inclined to think that it was something I ate, based on all the painful cramping, but I didn’t eat anything different that anyone else and none of them were suffering.  And while I guess it could have been a virus, it was unlike any I’d ever had.

Today I am feeling nominally better.  I am holding down food and drink — always a big plus — but I am still having stomach pains that make me stop in my tracks.  They aren’t as bad as yesterdays, which I can only describe as grueling, but they are still there.  And they are not fun.

The good news is, today is my last day of work.  The bad news is, I feel like crap and I’m still working.  But the father of the boys I babysit is having back surgery today, so I figured I could suffer through the day because at least I’m not having back surgery, right?

(anyone know what kind of illness would have your stomach cramping like this?  it’s not just a lower intestine cramping, if you know what I mean, but also cramping in my actual stomach.  my whole middle feels like someone is wringing it out.  no real fever to speak of.  anyone?)

    Sounds kinda like the “flu bug” we had around here awhile ago. Lasted a day or two, but the cramping lasted longer – muscle soreness like you did a thousand sit ups or something, too! NOT FUN! I feel for you (but keep it there please). Hope you get to feeling better soon!
