What a day

So today started out really well - cheerful attitude, great conversation with Gema, feeling encouaged and empowered. I was feeling great. Nothing could get me down....
Well, then about 5 minutes later, I developed a horrible stomachache. I was in Balboa Park, trying to enjoy being outside on this beautiful San Diego day. Looking in the lily pad pond, went into the green house. Then, the stomachache seemed to get worse. So much worse that it forced me to leave Balboa Park. As I drove home, my stomach hurt so much that I almost had to pull over. It was the strangest feeling. I made it home but was so weak from the pain that I could barely move. I laid on the couch, but it did not help. I managed to take a nap, which was nice. I woke up around 3pm - still with my stomach churning in pain. At this point it had been hurting for nearly 4 hours.
I tried to eat something, but wasn't very hungry. I managed to eat a banana.
I waited until 3:30pm then had to cancel my evening plans that I was really looking forward to.
I laid on my bed for an hour or so and then tried to eat a peanut butter sandwich.
It is now 6:35pm and I feel better. Instead of the pain being an 8 1/2 on a scale on 1 to 10, it is now at more of a 2. I still feel a bit of a stomachache but obvoiusly not nearly as bad.
Hmmmmm....I can't figure out what it is.
I am definitely not getting very good luck in the health department lately.
I think from now on, when I am back to being healthy (only God knows when THAT will be) I will be that much more thankful for my health.
To be honest, today really sucked. I had errands to run, things to do, plans with friends...and I did NOTHING. Nothing at all. Just laid around in pain. Not even Seinfeld came me any relief.
Hopefully tomorrow is better!
