I don’t really talk about my health.
Mainly because 97% of my traffic for this blog isn’t people who want to hear about me and my troubles, they’re just googling things and don’t want to worry about me as a person.
It’s cool, but I am giving you this update anyways.
Last night was the worst night I could imagine.
Well, maybe not the worst, I mean I didn’t die, but for a couple of hours I thought I would.
Over the years there have been a few health issues, nothing serious to be honest, more like annoyances the most persistent of which was trapped wind.
It sounds funny, I know, but through my teenage years and beyond it was always with me, easiest solution was just to curl up and it would pass on its own.
Not last night.
I woke up last night to the most intense pain I have felt, I’m beyond bloated, as if someone took a balloon and filled my gut to capacity, I hurt so bad I can barely move.
Literally, moving my legs to position myself is out, twisting my body to roll over is out, my arms are fine however.
From 1am til 5am I exist in this state of pain, by just before 5am I force myself to hobble out of bed, to the bathroom and ease myself into the tub, managing to crouch as I turn the water on.
The heat of the water brought some relief, didn’t stop the pain but it made it easier to move, so after soaking in the tub for about half an hour I regained my power of walking, made myself a hot water bottle and went to bed.
I don’t tell you this for sympathy, honestly I don’t think anyone reading this will care a great deal.
But waking up in the middle of the night wondering if your internal organs are rupturing? Well, you just want people to know you were there, what happened, you know?
And hey, if you guys want more personal updates in the future, I’ll write them, then at least you know something is going on and I didn’t just drop off the face of the earth, right?
