Today has been rough with the tummy. I'm not sure what my body is trying to tell me but this past week has been brutal.
I had a Dr. appt earlier in the week that the doc cancelled so I needed to re-book and the only time they had was Friday 11 am. I don't know why my mind loves to play with me but my stomach started up around 8am Friday and by 10am I was freaking out. Normally I would be fine with my meds because, uh, yeah, I stock pile but I had only one pill left of the one that is supposed to stop a panic attack in it's tracks. Seeing as how my best bud is coming down and we usually eat in the food court, I knew I would need at the very least that one pill in case of an emergency. Anyways, I just wanted the appt over with and have my prescription renewed!
Luckily Bob talked me down when I called him at work.
Then I get home and the stomach still won't settle and as I mentioned, my best bud is coming for a visit on Saturday so I start stressing about that. Since we haven't seen each other since before Christmas I know it's important to get together and I had to cancel last weekend so I wasn't looking forward to doing it again!
I stayed in bed most of the afternoon and finally got up because my back was killing me. Basically, my stomach is just starting to calm down - it's 1am now. We (Bob and I) think it was those Christmas treats I wrote about in December. I made them the other night and it occurred to me that maybe my stomach was reacting to the sweetened condensed milk.
Milk = Miserable Tummy and no, it's not the lactose. Have no friggin' clue but even lactose free milk runs amok in the tummy. Poor tummy.
I'm hoping by tomorrow afternoon I will be good as gold again and ready for my visit. Luckily Bob will be joining us in our shopping spree because I'm not sure I can do it without him.
It's weird how I can be perfectly fine for months and then have a bad spell that defies logic.
To get my mind off whatever it's stressing over I have started The Raven Prince by Hoyt and I'm enjoying it.
By this time tomorrow everything will have happened for better or worse.
Let's hope for the better!
