My system is recovering from anti-biotics, with stomach bacteria boosted by my taking pro-biotics again now the anti-biotic course has run its ... er ... course. But far out ... it's like being dragged back into abdominal pain hell that I used to experience on an almost daily basis.I had to drop theBoy at school. He was running laps of my person as I turned in place and as the cramping pain ate at my insides.
I've been on antibiotics for a few days due to an ear infection—I see my specialist shortly to have my damaged ear drained (I can't hear out of that ear)—and as such it has mucked up my innards. Just as I finished the end of the antibiotic run my system seized and acute gut pain set in. So many pain killers were had and hot water bottles were pressed against tummies. It was about 2 pm before my fatigue over came pain to allow sleep.
My oldwork released a report; it's the first one out since I left. The report is a month late but at least it's out. I was not expecting them to keep going with it so when a copy turned up at home—I put myself on the distribution list from the beginning so I could track delivery times through the post—I was quite shocked and it sparked an anxiety spike; I had to have a womb shower then I hopped naked into bed with the light off and electric blanket on.
Part of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy is learning tools to promote positive feelings or to perform activities that are positive. For example, helping others. Because if you help others then it's another win for the day. Now I can write again—in fits and bursts, however, some projects and current email games are in pause mode as I struggle with that area of my life—I've been sending out texts when I think of something funny.
In mid-March this year I had a tooth extracted. It was a back molar. The filling had chipped a while back and decay had set in. It was either enduring 180 minutes in three sessions to possibly save it, or having it yanked, a 20 minute procedure, and accepting the loss of a tooth.So I chose to yank it. It was one of the more discomforting medical interventions I've experienced.
