This 'n' that -- too many icons
I wasn't feeling very well today. Still having odd stomach issues. Not precisely nauseous, but hurting and unsettled, with occasional random stabbing -- especially whenever I eat. Obviously the answer here is to not eat. But my hunger reflexes are still healthy, so I keep getting hungry. Then I eat a little bit, then I feel icky.

This morning I decided that maybe extra sleeping would help, so I slept in a few hours, getting to work just in time for my noon o'clock meeting. I left around 4 o'clock once I realized that I wasn't going to get anything more done anyway. At least I wasn't seething with rage today, like I was yesterday.

I think I'm doing better now though. I hope so! I ate something close to a full meal this evening, for the first time since Tuesday, and I still feel mostly all right. I think I'll stay home from VP tonight (sadness), and try to get more sleep.

Other stuff going on in my life:
  • Next week I'm going to Otherworld, so I've been trying to put together a rennissancey sort of costume. C and a couple of other friends are also going, and I'm getting pretty excited; it's going to be so much fun!

  • Last night C and I went to the thrift store and halloween store to look for costume ideas. I found a baggy black shirt and pants that might work okay if I add some accessories. I also found a satin pirate shirt with a CAPE attached! Unfortunately it was child-sized, so the "long" sleeves end just past my elbows and the "wrist" elastic left deep indentations in my forearms. I bought it anyway, because it was only $2. And it has a CAPE! I pretend-flew around the store a few times.

  • One of my cats, I'm not sure which (although I have my suspicions), has a habit of peeing in my shower-drain. Fortunately the shower is easier to clean than any other inappropriate peeing spot, but I still don't approve. I have started putting a bowl of food there, because I read that a cat will not pee near its food (so far, so good). The bowl of catfood in the shower has made life a little more surreal for all of us.

  • Tuesday I went to a Race For The Cure celebration with my mom. They invited me to it because I raised over $500 in my photos for the cure and other random fundraising efforts. More specifically, we raised over $500, so many thanks to everyone who donated. Is there anybody I missed giving a picture to? Please tell me, and I'll correct it right away!

  • My brother and my nephew are coming to visit this weekend! It'll be fun to see them again. The baby is 20 months now....he is a fascinatingly different person every time I see him.

  • Just now I typed a note in my Treo, reminding myself to call the heater people to come fix my heater before I freeze to death. I was going to type "Call heating people", but I ran out of room so I left it "Call heating peops". Now I realize that I'm not particularly ghetto, but I thought that was a standard slang word. It looks like it's spelled wrong though. Should they be my heating "peeps"? But aren't peeps little marshmallow birdies? Maybe "pepes"? Or is it just that you're not supposed to actually spell out street talk....but if that's the case, then why is "bling-bling" in the dictionary now?

You seem to get sick a lot.

"I'm not sick, but I'm not well..."

Nah...I think I just tend to whine about it a lot when I don't feel right! (:

Here's a radical thought: go to the doctor.

No, no, really. Even if it's something minor there's no reason not to go in and talk to your doc. If nothing else, it will keep you from worrying that you've got something serious.

You've got benefits--use 'em!

And now we sing:
Been around the world and found that
Only stupid people are breeding
The cretins cloning and feeding
And I don't even own a TV

If you are having stabbing pains when you eat, that sounds bad to me. Isn't that a sign of an ulcer? You should get that checked out, ya know...

The Otherworld trip sounds like a LOT of fun! And you need to take pics of both the outfit for that and the pirate shirt and cape ;)

I missed you at Luna tonight ... hope you'll be a fit and feisty feline again soon.

P.S. Your post reflects your mad computer skillz. Word.

haha! sounds about right!

I never got a picture! I believe I requested a copy of the "fairy theme" picture. If you can't do that, then I guess you owe me a pose of my choice next time I'm over ;-).
renniekins From: renniekins Date: October 1st, 2004 09:58 am (UTC) (Link)
Oh yeah... I'll probably still do a fairy picture 'someday', but not sure when. Sure, I can do a pose of choice next time you come by, although I (as always) get veto power. (;

Yes, but I'm very charming and persuasive in person. ;-)

Your tummy problem sounds fairly serious! Mine was a bit queasy this morning, but eating (as always) made me feel much better. Good thing, too; my department had lunch with the COO, and if I had puked on him it wouldn't have gone over well.
renniekins From: renniekins Date: October 1st, 2004 10:55 am (UTC) (Link)
HA! No, that would have been quite awkward for everyone involved.

My tummy is better today, fortunately. It's been "disgruntled" more than actually "upset", meaning it was never serious enough to really worry about, but it was a constant annoyance and discomfort.

On Wednesday you wrote: it took a couple of hours of whimpering on the couch before it got better again.

So, I'm curious: How many hours of whimpering does it take before a problem is "serious enough to really worry about"?
renniekins From: renniekins Date: October 1st, 2004 02:19 pm (UTC) (Link)
hmm....24, I'd say. Or if something shows signs of getting worse not better, less.

I don't mean to make you all worry about me with this entry. The thing is: I'm kind of a baby when I'm not feeling well, at least when I'm all by myself. It's not like I was vomiting, or bleeding, or dying or anything. I just couldn't sleep, and my tummy hurt, so I was feeling sorry for myself. That sort of whimpering.

A couple of years ago my brother had to take his wife to the hospital one night because she couldn't breath.

It turned out the underlying problem was a stomach ulcer.

She'd been having stomach pains for months, but didn't "want to complain."

If your tummy aches keep returning, get it checked out, please.
renniekins From: renniekins Date: October 3rd, 2004 08:58 pm (UTC) (Link)
Wow, that's pretty scary. Thanks for the word of caution. My tummy is fine again, but I will be sure to pay attention to future aches (although hopefully there won't be any!).

Don't be silly.

It's your heating "pepys," especially in a journal format...

Your outfit sounds great! :) I'm looking forward to seeing you pretend-fly all around the camp!
