I should be happy but mostly I am complaining.

November 27th, 2007 at 05:09 pm

So I have discovered some tricks to not puking...I should be happy that it has been a day and a half without any puking thanks to my discovery. But instead I am complaining.

I should be happy I can drink and keep it down, instead I am complaining that I cannot drink a full glass of any liquid without puking. And even a quarter glass has to be accompanied by food.

I should be happy I can eat and keep it down, instead I am complaining that I cannot eat a normal sized meal, and instead I have to have 'mini meals' of about half normal 'serving size' making them minuscule compared to what I normally eat.

I should be happy I can get some work done, instead of complaining that I have to rest frequently rather than blitz the house in an hour...ok sometimes an hour and half, I have to do work in mini 5-10 minute episodes, once we get to gagging and heaving, time to sit yet again. any idea how long it takes to clean a house if you work 5 minutes sit for 10? I don't know, I usually give up after noon and quit trying to go back for the 5 minutes.

I should be happy I tend to wake up feeling human, instead of complaining that I run out of 'tricks' around dinner time and can't seem to finish cooking or cleaning up after for anything.

I should be happy my kids are so easy to put to bed, instead of complaining that I cannot tuck in my youngest without puking. (last night he insisted Daddy tuck him in...I should be glad, but I kinda feel uselss)

Heh, I suppose I should even by happy I seemed to have found a cure for my chocolate addiction..nothing worse than puking up chocolate! 'cept maybe chili.... of course instead you know I would like to complain about not having chocolate!

Anyway, I know what I should be feeling, I know how happy I aught to be...I am just not a good enough person to be so happy.

    Hum....sounds like we are in the same boat...I've not been able to eat nor enjoy a decent meal in so many weeks I will start measuring in months soon.

    When I was preg, I learned that for me, eating a few slices of raw potato helped. I was sick twice a day and it was soooo much worse on days where I did not do the potato. An Amish lady taught me that trick (she had 13 kids, so I figured she knew what she was talking about!)
    We have used it for flu, morning sickness....can't hurt to try. A friend of mine swears by green olives-might be the salt in them.

    I hope you feel better soon. One of the many things i have learned over the years is that the house will wait for you to be better. Try a smaller glass it will fool you into thinking you are drinking more and do the same with eating. Make two plates and put one in the Microwave when you are ready for the second half of the meal. I have to agree, that would cure me of wanting chocolate and I've done the chili bit, gross I agree. Our prayers are with you.
