Hey ladies!! It seems like it has been so long since I have sat down to write a post. I’m not going to bore you with everything that has been going on, so I will give you girls the short version.
Last Sunday I noticed I was feeling a tad bit nauseous, but nothing horrible. Going about my day was easy, but Monday came and it was a totally different story. I literally thought I was going to die by dinner time with overwhelming feelings of nausea. The kids were even asking if I could be “with child”…Ummm…NO!!
By early Tuesday morning, I was full-blown sick. I could not keep water down, popsicles, ice chips…nothing! By Wednesday I had dropped 7 pounds and Barry couldn’t take it anymore and hauled me ( literally) to an Urgent Care.
I was having no other symptoms other than nausea and not being able to hold anything down, so we were at a loss. It was like I was having the worst pregnancy ever. I did get medication for nausea and by Wednesday night I had full-blown vertigo. Nausea was subsiding, but vertigo is the worst!
I have never had vertigo so this was totally new and scary for me. I have not been able to keep my head level, walk straight, or hardly get out of the bed this entire week.
Around lunch, Saturday I could tell I could walk down the halls without holding on to the walls or chair railing and I could move my head without feeling like I was going to fall over. Which was the most wonderful feeling in the world!! Did I mention your head feels like it weighs 40 lbs??
I am not 100%, but I can tell I’m on the mend. I have gotten a few emails and messages on Social Media, so I know I needed to let you girls know what was going on. Sorry it has taken this long, I really had no choice since I could not use a laptop without my head spinning like I was in a drunken stooper.
One thing that I have realized during this past week is I am blessed to have good health. For those of you that deal with chronic pain or illness, my heart goes out to each and every one of you. Lying in a bed waiting to live life or feel just a tad bit better is one of the worst feelings I have ever experienced.
Hopefully, I will be in full swing this week and I will be able to sit at a desk and work. Thank you all for the messages, comments, and emails!! It has meant so much to me!! You all are such wonderful ladies and friends!! Have a great rest of the weekend!!
