Yesterday I woke up kind of sluggish, but managed my run...managed it well, considering the sluggishness, I thought. Went through my usual morning routine...shower, breakfast with readings and grat list...and in the midst of eating and writing...all of a sudden I had to sprint to the bathroom, where I became quite violently ill. WEIRD! How can I be fine one moment and so sick the next?
I was mildly hopeful that the problem was just my cherry juice. I've been drinking 2 tbsp of cherry concentrate diluted in 8 ounces of water on my run mornings, to address muscle and joint pain. I don't love that stuff; sometimes it even makes my stomach hurt a little. So I hoped that was all it was. But within seconds, I felt like I had been hit by a mack truck. I crawled back into bed, but was up in about 5 minutes putting on heavy socks and my hoodie, with the hood UP...I was getting colder by the moment. From under the covers I texted work to let them know I wouldn't be in first thing, and then I crashed to sleep, HARD, as soon as I finally got warm. WEIRD.
I was also hopeful that sleeping it off for the morning would be good enough, since I had been well until 3 seconds before the upchuck. But at 11 I was barely able to come conscious, and sitting up wasn't even an option. More texts to work and back to sleep. Later in the afternoon I was finally able to do big extravagant things like walking to the bathroom, and heating up soup, and (rather fearfully) carefully eating the soup in a reclined position, praying it wouldn't bring the same reaction breakfast had.
I was quite a bit better by bedtime...still wiped out, but more or less functional. This morning, I THINK I am better. Breakfast isn't doing anything evil to me. I'm showered and though my butt is dragging, I think I can do work.
Seems like this latest round isn't related to the several weeks of exhaustion I just recently experienced...it's quite different. Unless my body is just protesting differently?
Color me puzzled.
