Monday, Monday

Not sure if I have a low grade virus or maybe that sinus issue or what but still feeling slightly under the weather since last week. The headache is persistent (it's down to just hanging out a bit behind the eyes so that's better) and each time I eat a meal, my stomach gets distended (not THAT again...ugh) and I feel queasy and the headache comes back. WTF? On Saturday morning I made the mistake of eating sausage gravy and biscuits at a diner with Emily - something I haven't eaten in years. I also had a little of the home fries on the side. My stomach was terribly sick all day and I had to try to sleep it off. I also wonder lately if I have an issue with potatoes, fried ones particularly. I don't eat them often but my tummy doesn't seem to like french fries or pan fried potatoes at all. So odd.

Other than that, I was so pleased to be able to have motherofjedi come by and have dinner with Emily and I last night on her way back home. She'd never had poke and loved it! So I found some places near where she lives to go try.

Yesterday I saw a thread on Twitter that was so sweet. Chris Bridges, aka Ludacris, did the sweetest thing for a stranger. Here's a link to an unrolled version of the twitter thread. What a fabulous guy! CNN article about it.

Ok, time to wander back into workitude. So much to do.

Fried potatoes, as much as I LOVE them, are definitely hard on the stomach because of the oils :s (or so I've read, but my tummy definitely agrees one way or another). I do hope you feel better soon <3

Yay for dinner with friends :) Okay reading that link now...

I'm going to try to make that odd sandwich which will contain non-oil fried potatoes. If my tummy still objects, I'll have my answer.

I didn't feel well last night after having a pretty simple poke bowl and bubble tea. This morning when the kitties got me up to get fed, I felt gross too.

I brought a mini can of ginger ale to have after I eat lunch (a simple romaine salad with some grilled lemon chicken) just in case.

Oh yum! Hope you take a pic :) And I hope even more that your stomach approves.

I would definitely hit up that Ginger Ale right about meow xo I keep some in my fridge for stomach aches!

"A young, handsome African American man..." Yeah, who also happens to be worth 20 million :D How adorable that she didn't know who he was!!

Gosh, how happy and proud is Chris' mom today?? What a super sweet story.

According to her twitter thread, she was so overwhelmed and teary eyed that she just couldn't place him.

Ludacris is good people. <3

Do you still have your gall bladder? You might want to have it checked. I had similar symptoms before I had mine removed. I still can't eat a lot of fried or greasy foods, but it's better than it used to be.

I hope you feel better.

I had the ol' gallbladder plucked out a few years ago. The tummy swelling continued after it was removed but it did start to gradually improve after time.

But yeah, greasy foods are a rarity for me since they make me swell up like I'm wearing a basketball under my boobs. Red meat will sometimes do it too. I also need to beat into my brain to stop nervous nibbling and get off some weight since my joints will thank me too

Thanks. Since Emily is also not feeling too great lately, although the swelling is likely the greasy food issue, I think the nausea and headache and stuff may be a virus or something. Hopefully it'll go away soon.I got stuff to do!

What a sweet story <3

I hope it's not a virus and whatever it is that it gets better SOON.

Starting to feel better even though I'm still tired. Have a lot to do at work (as usual) so hopefully the system stays cooperative.
