This weekend was a huge bust. I've been sick, and kinda depressed. I missed Friday dinner plans with family and friends. L had to go alone. Bummer. It was my little brother's birthday luncheon yesterday, and I could barely leave my bed to see everyone off to a yummy Italian lunch. Bummer. I have a lot of work and crap to do today, and I'm weak and dizzy. Bummer. My period is due to arrive any minute now. Bummer.
Can you tell I'm feeling a bit low?
Being sick when you have endometriosis is like being punished twice. You already have a limited number of days where you feel really good. Being sick cuts into that allotment of good days, which sucks balls.
I started acupuncture on Wednesday. I will write a more detailed post about it later, but I think I am having a bad reaction to it. Who the heck has a bad reaction to ACUPUNCTURE?!? I have heard so many good stories about its benefits, and all I know is that (a) the stinky tea made me feel high and then really nauseous and (b) I've been imbalanced and flu-ish ever since I had my session on Friday. Isn't this shit supposed to make me feel more balanced?
I've blown my diet since I started feeling nauseous, and ate Burger King, Panda Express, and a lot other garbage that I am not supposed to be eating. However, when you don't feel good, a spinach salad with organic balsamic vinaigrette sounds like shit on toast. I figure I'll jump back on the organic, cage-free, range- free, grass fed, hormone-free, cruelty-free, vegan, gluten-free, we-pet-the-animals-nicely-before-we-slaughter-them diet when I feel better. But not right now. Right now I'm gonna eat some hormone stuffed chicken that grew huge breasts and was dipped in batter, fried, and then covered in toxic ranch dressing.
While I eat my toxic chicken, I'm gonna watch some trash TV, drink a bone thinning diet soda, and wait it out until I feel better.
This is what my sick weekend looks like. Jealous?
