Hanging in There

I'm trying to take it one day at a time... and each day for the past two weeks has been the same. Here's a little peek into my life as of late:
  • Wake up at 7:30 pm and drink a small glass of water - then rush to the bathroom when the urge to vomit comes.
  • Get back in bed for cuddles from Mr. Expat Bud after vomit session and cry to him about not making it through another day.
  • Get up and fill my empty stomach with toast.
  • Shower and get ready as slowly as possible - doing the bare minimum (I feel bad for people that have to look at me these days!)
  • 8:55 I'm off to work (only a 5 minute walk away) but not before lots of hugs from Mr. Expat Bud (usually there is more crying here).
  • While I'm at work I try very hard to keep my breakfast and snacks down and drink water. Sometimes I win, sometimes the m/s does. I usually cry because I miss my family at home.
  • 12:30 I walk home for small lunch and a nap (the nap is the best part of my day)
  • Back to work by 2 and the countdown begins until I get to go home at 5:30. More crying here.
  • Around 3:30 I pray to the porcelain god in the work bathroom. Cry some more.
  • At 5:30 I head home and back to bed until Mr. Expat comes home to make dinner, then I move to the couch. Sometimes there is another visit to the toilet in this time.
  • After dinner is when I feel semi-okay for the first time in the day (though sometimes I don't get to that point) and Mr. Expat and I will watch a movie before I hit the sheets.
So this is my existence lately. I am really trying to see the light at the end of the tunnel, but if someone tells me that "this will pass soon" again, I will vomit on them.

Oh, thank you so much Domestic Princess! I will definitely be putting that stomach of steel to use.

I hope you start to feel better soon. I get really motion sick (I know totally not the same thing), but sometimes ginger or peppermint help with the nausea.

Expat Bud said...

Thanks, C!

Jenifire, I've tried ginger and peppermint and have found little relief from either :-( I think I am destine to suffer!
