day



Today was a "hungry" day ... and I am not sleeping well.  There are now 2 abscesses, one the size of a pencil eraser and the other about the size of a quarter.  There is also pain in my abdomen in another spot and just some diffuse pain.  I do not feel well and I feel nauseated.

Not eating food to fulfill any emotional needs .. YEAHHHH .. but am genuinely hungry and from the calorie count today .. need to try to make some more "filling" and lower calorie choices for tomorrow.  It bumped me back up to 204 .. darn.

Will also be heading to the doctor as I'm completing this at 3:31 am because I am awake due to the pain.  Trying to stand the pain and get a little work done .. before taking another pain pill ... and having to eat something so it doesn't upset my tummy (and yes, my tummy is empty) and going back to sleep.  

This not sleeping well and being awake most of the day and night .. is affecting the amount of food I am eating.  Got to get this abdomen/ abscess thing resolved.

Actually am sweating and the temp is 78 in the house.  Turned it down a few more degrees and am going to take my temp.  Still no temp .. but there never has been throughout this .. that is a good thing, I think.

Take care of each other .. I'm trying so hard to get back ....

Ranae, I'm very sorry to hear that you aren't sleeping well.  That's so hard  to deal with when you don't fee well.  I sure hope the doctor can do something for you to get these abscesses resolved..............

Praying for you...........((hugs))

Ranae,

So glad you are taking care of yourself in all ways .. even the "not" eating or shall I say, eating within your boundaries!

Sorry you up all hours of the night.  At least you can rest after your Dr. appt knowing you did so much last night.

What a frustrating time for you.  It is bad enough feeling awful without not being able to sleep and forget your troubles at least for a little while.  Let us know how it goes at the doctor.  You're in my thoughts and prayers.

Love and hugs, Trudie
