ER Selfies!

I caught some sort of awful, awful stomach bug. We’re not entirely certain it wasn’t food poisoning but they couldn’t confirm it.

After 3 days of being unable to keep down any food or water, I figured it was time to head to the ER. I ended up getting 2 full bags of IV fluids and IV pain medication while I was there. I got sent home with a script for stomach meds and a special diet to try.

It’s cleared up a lot and for that, I am thankful.

I would have been devastated having to miss my Grandfather’s funeral.

When you’re chronically ill what you want to do and what you should do very rarely coincide, and no chronically ill person should ever be made to feel guilty for choosing what they feel is best for their health, both mental and physical, at any given time.
