|Just a little sip...|
Today has been one awful day. I've been nursing a toothache for the last couple days, but today it was just making me flat out miserable. I left work about an hour early, came home and curled up in bed. My boyfriend snuggled up with me to try to comfort me, and after getting his head bit off for asking what was wrong ( I get very grumpy when I don't feel good, lol) he went to ask his mom if she had anything that would make me feel better.
He returned with some vicoden and antiinflammatories, I promptly took some and dozed for a couple hours. Woke up later feeling pretty good, had some soup, read a little, took a shower, had some great sex, and tried to go to sleep. After tossing and turning, I finally got up to take my sleep meds, on top of more vicoden and the antiinflamitories, since my tooth was hurting pretty bad again. Here's where it gets weird / scary.
I went downstairs to go pee, then to the kitchen to swish some salt water to hopefully ease the ache. As soon as I turned the water on, I started getting cold sweats, dizzy, and my hands went numb. This is usually the precursor to a really bad stomach ache, so I promptly sat down at the kitchen table to try to wait it out. After awhile I finally started to feel a bit better, so I finished my salt water swishing, grabbed a piece of bread to hopefully counter the stomach thing, and tried to go back upstairs. Only as soon as I tried to go up the stairs, I got the cold sweats again. -_- This time I curled up on the couch (didn't want to risk getting dizzy and falling down the stairs) and slowly ate my piece of bread. It again finally went away, several minutes later, so I went to get 2 more pieces of bread and headed back upstairs.
So far I'm feeling much better. The vicoden kicked in so now I'm just waiting for my sleeping meds to do the same. But damn, that was scary. I hate getting stomach sick. I assume I just took too many pills at once and my body freaked out a little. But yuck. Cold sweats are the worst. :(
Anyways. I've been meaning to write more often (I say that everytime I write, lol) but I'm really going to try this time. Maybe start with 2-3 entries a week and go from there. We'll see!
