( I’ve come out with the strangest bruises on my eyes..even the doctor said he had never seen this)
Today has been super difficult for me. I wasn’t able to eat anything until about 10 minutes ago, I had clam chowder sans the clams. I have come to understand that anything sweet is a major no-no for me. The thought of eating, smelling, or drinking something sweet is absolutely revolting. Maybe this is a permanent change? For now, I’m enjoying the warm soup in my belly. Before that I had a small coffee, water, and 3 sips of a (what would normally be delicious to me) Nutella and banana smoothie. I think my body was running so low on calories and I haven’t taken a nap today that I just felt really sick and light-headed.
I went on my five-minute walk today and it was quite the struggle. I couldn’t see signs ahead of me, that’s a side effect of the medicine added onto the nausea, strangely enough my final destination for this walk was a grocery store. The ONE thing I thought I could eat was clam chowder. I feel like a pregnant woman sometimes! I get the strangest cravings, I move very slowly ( no offense ladies), and I have to sleep on my back. Well, I’ll be prepared I guess. Adding more humor is the fact I’ve had kidney stones so many times in the past year, according to women with children the pain of kidney stones is worse than child labor. Wow, I really am ready for any future pregnancies I might go through.
My mood is especially low today because frankly I am so sick of being swollen. I feel like a slug….just slugging around everywhere, but I’m a sad slug 😦 I’m a slug that can’t eat anything.
As for my swelling, I feel like my lips are more swollen but it could be because he changed the elastics yesterday. My face looks pretty much the same…I’ll let you decide for yourselves 🙂
Tomorrow I have another appointment with the doctors. I hope I feel better, I want to remain positive and not start going backwards in my recovery…wish me luck?
