Gastritis, Bad Nightis

If you have a weak stomach, stop reading. Thanks.

I’m not too sure about it, but I think I’m sick. Got a little nauseous last night, but settled my stomach. Today, got nauseated at work, and it kinda settled in for the long haul. One of my coworkers was out with it today, and will likely be out tomorrow. Another one got over it earlier this week. So I know where it came from.

Right now, I’m both growlingly hungry and unnervingly nauseated. Between a one and a five (five being throwing up) I’m oscillating between one and two. If I can stay there overnight or go back to a zero, it’ll be great. I’m starting to get a little thirsty, though I’m afraid to start sipping on anything; the water I was drinking earlier today was churning my stomach. So, I have some Gatorade, and I’ll see where that takes me.

Vomiting is one of those things I just do not abide by. We do not get along. I’d rather have it go the other way than up by any means necessary. I have a brand new bottle of Emetrol to help me out – this stuff is incredible. Sucrose, fructose, phosphoric acid. Think “Coca Cola” without the cola flavor or carbonated water. Stuff that diabetics can’t take, the sugar content is so high. It’s there if I need it.

I was supposed to have dinner tonight with my roomate; his first night off in 10, and he was going to take me to Chinese buffet for birthday dinner. After I came home and he woke up, I gave him the news. I apologized, and I hope he understands; this buildup and then “I’m sick.” If I’m better tomorrow, we might eat then.

But until then, I’m just hanging out at the house. Trying to not lose my mind nor my lunch.
