The last week and a half has been a mix of good and bad days. I volunteered on the 9th for the first time in ages and it felt great. I wasn't feeling ill or tired. Afterwards some friends and I went to Szechuan City for supper. The buffet cost $13.95 and was excellent.

On Saturday the 10th I went to Dim Sum at Don Mee's with my friend from up-island and another old university friend. It was great. Later on I stopped at Jimmy's and got a proper haircut. Very few people commented on on my hair since I cut it but he comments weren't good. Sigh (haha).

On Sunday/Monday I had a stomach ache so I went and bought some strong antacid tablets. Gaviscon is great but expensive.

For most of last week I was tired but not feeling too bad. I slept in on Friday and missed volunteering. I wasn't happy about that.

On Sunday I had stomach problems again. I ate out and then found myself falling asleep at the computer. I didn't want to sleep too soon after eating (90 mins) but I had no choice. I woke up 3 hours later with a horrible stomach ache. I took some antacids and that helped a bit but I was so bloated. No indigestion or constipation; just a "basketball" (or two) stuck in my gut.

I couldn't get my stomach to behave and I couldn't lay down or sit. I got dressed and was going to go for a walk outside. Before I did that I had a glass of water and checked online for information. The info didn't help but got me thinking about getting myself sick to get better. Suddenly I felt nauseous and broke out in a hot sweat. I rushed to the bathroom and got sick I never felt so happy to puke in my life because the stomach pressure was gone!

I just had my first real meal since then and it was a safe one (an omelet). For the past few days I've been eating scones and liquid yogurt and was glad to have something different. We'll see how it goes.

I have more to blog about but it will have to wait for another post.

I'm sorry to hear you are struggling with your health so much. This is not good. You've been on my mind lately, so I thought it was high time I stopped by and said "hello". So - Hello!!!
