Home and Miserable

My trip has come to an end. Thank goodness! I loved seeing my son in Dallas and his family, and my niece and her children in Austin. I enjoyed seeing Michelle Obama and Rachael Ray at “The Drum” on Thursday night. It was a great trip.

But, (you knew there was going to be a but, right?) I was so sick the whole time. Don’t worry, I wasn’t infectious. I’m having stomach issues similar to what I experienced almost a year ago, and even though I started on antibiotics two days before departing I was plenty miserable most of the time.

The drive was awful. Usually I enjoy odd sights along the way, but this trip I was too focused on finding the next clean rest stop to pay attention to oddities. Oh, and I was as annoying as a guest can be. The words “I can’t eat that,” came out of my mouth more times in a week than they have in my entire life. I’ve never been a picky eater, but literally everything causes me gastric distress right now.

I have an appointment with my doctor tomorrow. This has to come to an end. One has to be firm with one’s stomach, right?

Peace, people.

  1. Oh gosh, that sounds horrible! I’ve been dealing with a funny time the last couple of weeks too! I can’t eat what I want, it’s been no fun. I’m still waiting on test results. I think it’s IBS, but we’ll have to wait and see. That would have made the trip no fun, but I hope it didn’t ruin it!

  2. Hope you feel
    Better soon.
    And your trip reminds me of the annoying guest I was last year while at my MIL’s
    I was fighting off the flu and had tea nonstop – tea on the hour –

      1. Oh so glad.
        Another idea – try senna capsules (kind George used senna for his tummmy)
        But there are some great herb bkends and another product I LOVE (got my first bottle
        From Trader Joe’s in 2002) is from health plus inc and it is a standard colon cleanse – whew – I still thank god for that. But that company has six different (easy and affordable) all natural cleanses – like a kidney one – etc

        Was just reading in a book how we get so much misc stuff- like dr Colbert was able
        To test his own stuff and he got giardia from swimming in a lake in Florida –
        And there can be stuff in food and water and so anytime something like this persists – a cleanse should be in the list – our GI is a set of pipes and can get stuff

        Oh and how could I forget kombucha ?
        Drink two bottles a day for one week (and start to make your own cos it is like sending the marines into your gut)
        I prefer the brand GTs
        And they have a great gingerade

  3. PS
    Hope you do get to the root cause –
    And maybe consider doing an intestinal cleanse (just an idea)
    In 2006 I did this one called the In and Out cleanse by body redesigning (Joseph Christiano) and whew – wonderful – highly suggest everyone of a certain who do yearly cleanses and that is just one (great option)
    And another thing to consider is a month or two of “p and b” shakes
    It is psyllium fiber and sonne’s #7 bentonite clay – you take it twice a day and it is easy and wonderful – please let me know if you want to hear more – and if not – we never have to mention it again….

      1. Me again-
        One more tidbit to consider – try baking soda – a couple years ago I actually did a baking soda cleanse (look up dr sircus) but some
        People drink a glass or two for stomach relief and for alkalizing the body – mmmmm
        Two teaspoons in a big glass of water.
        The later – the second glass I make with lemon water too – the fizzy mix is amazing

  4. Awww. I hope you get better soon. Gearing up for a trip with a watering eye and your post makes me more pessimistic. I’m surprised you still managed to sound darkly upbeat in this one. 😆😂
