A Better Day for Me!

Nausea and head pressure were messing with me this morning. I took Elle to school, cleaned up, and loaded up the truck for work. I had to go back and paint ceilings and then begin painting the trim … lots of trim (floor trim, chair rail, crown molding, etc.) I thought I’d be done with this job by the end of today. Wishful thinking. This job has been more work than I anticipated. I definitely underbid it. Oh well. Live and learn.

As I focused on painting, the less I focused on my pain, and that actually helped. By 12pm, I needed an extended lunch break to rest my body. My neck and mid-back were killing me. I drove to Chipotle … ate another burrito bowl of white rice, double chicken, and guac. Then I stopped and got a small Starbucks coffee. In the afternoon, I felt pretty good while painting, but by 4pm my body was telling me to stop for the day. I began having some head pressure with brain fog and my left abdomen began to ache. So I cleaned up and went home.

For dinner, I ate some broiled wild caught flounder with green beans and baked french fries. I took my meds, vitamins, and supplements … and now I’m chilling on the couch watching Netflix … a good documentary called The Magic Pill.

Today I found out that my recent stool test came back “normal.” I’m still waiting on the results from my SIBO test. Something has been wrong with my stomach and intestines for months and we can’t figure it out. At times, the pain has been absolutely excruciating.

Overall, it was a better day for me. Thank You, Lord.

Battling with you,

Jason
