Hey Friends 😀
Happy Wednesday! I can’t say that I woke up to a very happy Wednesday though. Ok- I have to tell you what happened (even though it’s kind of gross) but usually I’ll find someone else that has had the same thing happen to them..that’s why I like sharing.
So, this morning, I woke up RIGHT before my alarm went off & I had to make a MAD DASH to the bathroom. I seriously thought I was going to throw up in bed when I woke up- the WORST feeling ever. I felt really queasy&kind of dizzy as well. 😦 I also feel SUPER exhausted today & it’s not like I went to bed any later than normal..and I even had a great night of sleep- no waking up randomly..until I had that awful feeling. I never really got sick..but I did do the whole finger down the throat ordeal (GROSS..I know- sorry!) because honestly I knew that I would feel 100x better if I COULD just get sick.
I STILL have the indigestion feeling in my throat & chest…& my stomach has been REALLY messed up this morning too. I have MAJOR gas pains (sorry..again…) (& don’t worry- nothing is coming out of these gas pains- haha- I AM @ work- LOL) – and it just keeps making lots of noises..probably because of these pains. I DON’T know what’s going on. UHH! & this exhaustion feeling is NOT pleasant either. I think today will be FILLED with coffee. Already had an iced coffee this morning & I’m planning to head to Starbucks on my lunch break for more. The worst part of this is just the indigestion & stomach pain issue…
I almost felt like calling into work because of all of the pain..but I figured I would stick it out. Not like I have to be up & running around- just at a desk all day.
Has this feeling ever happened to you?? Or something similar?

Here are some interesting articles that I found while surfin’ the web this a.m :
Is Having Hope Helpful? (<–Just found this blogger that does stuff on living with Crohn’s disease! So cool! He understands the pain..haha)
This Article is funny- & informative..on a different level 🙂
Summer Trends- the one guys HATE on women. Now, I have to confess: I do own Tube Top dresses- that I love to wear over my bathing suit- but as he explains in the article, I don’t have all of all that material around the belly- these are just plain, simple ones. And one that I DON’T agree with at all is the one about Maxi dresses- I LOVE them! TOTALLY agree with him about the boot/sandal looking things- really what the heck?!
Do you own any of these things? What do you agree with/ disagree with?
