I hope you all don’t get this nasty gastrointestinal bug that is going around the northwest. My husband had it and now I have it.
It starts out with two days of restless sleep, and then one gets a nasty case of heartburn that goes on for hours. One’s skin feels clammy and prickly; and it is very hard to regulate temperature.
I literally felt like I had been punched in the stomach multiple times. I have never been punched in the stomach but assumed that is what it must feel like. When my husband first had it I worried because those are also heart attack symptoms.
Then it hits your gut hard. With my husband it was impossible to stay away from a toilet for very long.
I lucked out, for me it’s both vomiting and the runs.
Just the slightest sip of water makes one have to run for the bathroom. I have not had anything to eat today but half a saltine cracker, about six ounces of Gatorade, and sips of water here and there. The crazy thing is that I actually feel hungry. It was that way for my husband too.
It’s not a horrible illness, just one of life’s inconveniences, but I am very happy that God watches over me just the same.
So, this is my post today. Sorry it’s not more uplifting. I hope you all stay safe and healthy.
I thought this Facebook image is fitting!
