Spent The Day NOT At Work

I felt great when I woke up. I actually didn't puke. Today's the day I check my blood sugar, so I couldn't eat until I found my blood sugar machine. I couldn't find it anywhere. Eventually, I did, but in the rush to find it so I could eat, I must have set my cell phone down. I ended up at the office without it. Also, I ended up not eating.

That was fine. I missed 8 calls during the day (and have avoided checking voicemail ever since).

But I still hadn't eaten. And I couldn't. I started to have tightness that felt like contractions, only without the uncontracting part. Then, at 10 a.m., I spontaneously threw up. Now, I've been tossing cookies almost daily...but not like this. This was sudden and without the green of pregnancy.

By 2 p.m., the pain in my back had become a stabbing pain. Like a knife in my lower back. Plus, other symptoms started, like peeing and burning. Fun.

I really would have went to the hospital, but I see my doctor at 10 a.m. And the last time I thought I had a bladder or kidney infection (I'm afraid it's probably kidney-related), the doc said, "no, you're just pregnant."

So I sat at my mom's, almost crying and grabbing my back. I feel like crap. Tomorrow, I'd better get drugs for this. ;)
