It’s day 8, still no improvement. My battle with feeling queasy and lack of appetite doesn’t want to go away. I’m still tired but staying active and going on about life the best I can.
Randy and I made plans for the evening with another friend which sounded like fun other than I still feel crappy.
As Randy and I walked into the building I started to fall behind. He was walking way too fast for me and I was becoming out of breath. I know I’m out of shape, but I’ve never had a hard time keeping up with him. We’ve always walked side by side with neither of us having an issue. I tell Randy to slow down and wait for me. He asked me if I was ok I just told him I was just tired. Seems to be my new normal these days.
We met up with a friend for our buffet dinner. As I walked through the buffet line nothing really jumped out at me. I ended up making a salad and picking out a soup. The soup seemed to be easier to eat than the salad. (I still think it’s a chewing thing).
In between bites, I sipped water which helped wash the food down. The water actually tasted better than my food. I felt so thirsty. It was as though I couldn’t drink enough at times. I ordered water after water. I thought I was going to float away.
After we were finished eating I became really cold to the point of shivering. My face felt warm to me, but it wasn’t red and I didn’t feel like I had a fever. At this point, I was so tired and really just wanted to go home.
I sat and watched the guys play because I really didn’t care to be there. As I sat and watched them play I decided to cancel my plans with a friend for the next day. I can’t imagine having the energy to go out again tomorrow and I didn’t want to give whatever this was to her.
After a few hours, we finally left for home. As we headed to the car I couldn’t wait to sit down. My body was tired and I was out of breath again. I sank into the passenger seat and rested my eyes while Randy drove us home.
When we arrived couldn’t wait to take a shower and climb into bed for the night.
It sure didn’t take me long to fall asleep.
