Sorry I've been MIA for a few days. I place the blame solely on Joy of Tokyo.
Sunday night, Puff and I got back from being out of town, and we swung by for some quick fast-food hibachi. (More on our trip later.) It always upsets my stomach a little bit. But it's never anything an hour of groaning on the couch plus a handful of tums can't handle. This time, it was a bit different.
I woke up about an hour after lying down for bed and felt icky. I sent Puff into bed and set up camp in the guest room, so I could watch TV. Except about an hour later, I got that overwhelmingly sick feeling. And every hour, on the hour, all night long, I was making very good friends with the porcelain throne. And Puff? Don't worry... he got a good night's sleep since he slept through all but my first episode.
Round about 7am, I finally sent him out to get crackers, Sprite, and Gatorade. I was seriously dehydrated. He also forced me to take one of his prescription strength anti-nausea pills he had gotten last time he was sick. I'm thankful that he did, since I never got sick again, although I felt queasy the rest of the day. The pill also knocked me out, so I was able to sleep most of the day, and went down for the night around 7:30pm.
I woke up this morning not feeling sick to my stomach, which was a total blessing. Except I'm still feeling tired and a bit light-headed. The sinus headache and back pain aren't helping the situation any. I've popped pills for those and have been taking it easy this morning so far. I called in for a 1/2 day of work, so I've still got a few hours to lounge around and hopefully start to feeling a bit better on that front. I've never had food poisoning before, but I'm pretty confident that's what this was. And you can better believe I won't ever be going to Joy of Tokyo ever again!
The silver lining in all of this? I lost 3 pounds.
