For the past 2 or 3 weeks I’ve been sick. Some days I felt really sick, other days slightly sick, but never not sick. On the worst days I really just wanted to go back to bed and sleep the day away. Fish begged me to do so, but I was afraid to. I felt like if I was laying in bed on a perfectly good summer day, I was giving in to whatever it was that was ailing me. That would make me feel really sick. Admitting that level of sick led me to worry about more than just a passing virus. Did I have cancer? Did I need an operation? On the really bad days it would take great effort to get basic tasks done without breaking out in cold sweats. It felt like I was having a hypoglycemic episode for days at a time. Most persistent was the nausea.
It felt like I was suffering from morning sickness but 2 negative pregnancy tests ruled that out. I finally decided to go to the doctor. She wants to do blood work and see if my insulin resistance and turned into something more serious. In the meantime, she told me that I could have acid reflux and I should get some over the counter zantac to see if that would relieve the nausea. I did and guess what? I’m cured!
Stupid acid reflux.
