I've had a stomach bug

Saturday, December 28, 2019

It kicked in Thursday night about 8 pm. It finally ran it's course early this morning. The whole house has been sick. It started with me, being sick for over 24 hours straight. Then Jim his lasted about 8 hours. Miss B was sick maybe 2 hours. And it cleared up in reverse order. Miss B., Jim, and then myself. I've wondered why mine hung on for more than double everyone else. It's simple. I've been worn out. I have run non-stop since Thanksgiving. It's been rather stressful. My mother-in-law has had her famous attention seeking moments. Our holiday stuff has been disrupted by Jim working and I've put in extra time with Miss B. To make up for it. I haven't been sleeping well. AGAIN. That started in October when my friend fell then passed away from surgery complications. My battery was just down. Me. The Energizer Bunny, as one of my sparkfriends calls me. Then this came across my feed this morning on Facebook. And it's sadly true. And it's just what I've done. I'm on the mend. Although a lunch of applesauce is probably not considered great, at least it's food. Something I haven't had since Thursday at 5pm.

    So emoticon you have been so run down & sick. emoticon for the reminder to us all that self care is essential: A truth too easily forgotten or pushed aside. Wishing you a speedy recovery, and some ritual or routine that can help you remember daily to put your well-being at the top of your priority list.

    Applesauce is good for you after you've had an upset stomach. Get some rest. Christmas is over and it's crash time anyway! Snooze a lot and I hope you're fully recovered soon.

    You did a good thing feeding your gut applesauce . . . it's easily digested and good for the gut. HOPE you feel 100% today! There really is a nasty virus going around. Has been since October.
