The Wedding

Somehow, I made it through the wedding without being sick. I only ate a small amount, so that probably helped. However, the little I did eat, is causing some pretty intense stomach pain. It burns horribly and feels like I've been punched. But, that's not new.

The wedding was amazing! I even managed to get up and do the electric slide with friends. I haven't been able to dance in a while, so that made me extremely happy.

Right now, I'm trying to ignore the pain in my stomach. I am bloated and crampy. I just took my anti-spasmodic medication in hopes that it helps. I feel extremely tired and fatigued. I haven't eaten too much today but I've been trying to drink lots of water. I really could lay down and go to sleep, if my stomach would let me.

But, I have to be social for a few more hours. That's not a bad thing, but I just need my stomach to cooperate. At least I didn't throw up at the reception or during the wedding.

I'm still miserably hungry but I don't want to make myself even more ill. My medication needs to kick in first, before I can do anything. My stomach medicine also makes me sleepy. Well, one step at a time, I guess.

The picture below is of us after the wedding. I'm in the purple.
