Stomach Aches

United States
June 30, 2020 7:15am CST
It started last night around 9:30. I actually ended up going to bed early because of it. I can't really describe the pain other than to say it was intense. I woke up several times throughout the night because of it. This morning I feel better. Writing I'm setting aside the book I was working on. Just for the time being because I don't feel the same passion for it at the moment. I need to do some more research, immerse myself in the time period and then I'll pick it back up again. I am 90% happy with what I've written, but if I keep writing I know that number will dwindle. In the meantime I'm going to pick up my reading again. I'm going to immerse myself in my hobbies for a bit while I also continue cleaning. Things I need to buy Those hangers that let you hang multiple items on one hanger. A sheer curtain (in case the curtain we have here is one I don't like) Another few skeins of yarn (I've bought some today, but I need more for what I'm planning next) My vitamins My tea Another present for a friend + gift bag I am giving you guys my shopping list because then maybe I won't forget something on it, which is bound to happen with me. Still waiting on the yarn from the 'lotter. It got hung up somewhere in the works. It was supposed to be here yesterday. The USPS tracking is useless. Maybe it will be here today or tomorrow. *fingers crossed* Have you ever eaten a taco shell casserole? Going to make that sometime soon

Glad that you're feeling better. Best to wait until your writing juices start to flow again. I've never had a taco shell casserole.

I should have given it another name. Taco shell implies using tortillas. When I say "Shells" I mean jumbo pasta shells. Whoops. Yes feeling much better and very glad to be feeling better too.

I had also stomachache in the middle of my sleep. I had to get up and rub vicks vaporub on my tummy. After that I was able to sleep.

I hadn't thought to use that. I will have to try that next time. We had pepto bismol but I wasn't sure if it was safe to take since it expired at the beginning of the year. It's never been opened though.

@thelme55 Yes, I need to look online to see what is recommended. I think medicines are given an expiration date but they are usually safe to take past that date.

I'm glad to hear you feel better today. I had something similar last week. I had some prune juice to flush out my tummy and I was ok after a couple of days.

I am glad you felt better after doing that. I am not sure if it would work for me. It was an odd pain, and maybe not quite my stomach.

@ScribbledAdNauseum All the same, I'm glad you feel better now. Maybe the prune juice helping was just a fluke. I'm just glad the pain went away because it was horrible.

@Lushlala I can understand that. I once had a stomach ache so bad that I had to sleep in one position or else not sleep at all. It went away after a few days as well.

@ScribbledAdNauseum I'm glad it's better. During summer, stomachache is almost a normal thing, unfortunately. Me too!

@moonandstars Yes, I hate any kind of stomach ache at all. Even if it's just gas as I am never quite comfortable with gas either.

Those hangers are just so good for an efficient space management. I have few in my wardrobe. Though they are bit expensive, I am glad to have invested in them. What kind of book are you writing? Good to take a break when you don't have the motivation for it.

I am going to buy some today. I made a purchase for a few necessities just a few moments ago and forgot to get them. I'll see if I can find a good price for them. The book I am working on is a fictional account based on some things I can find from my ancestors.

I will try. I have to wait for some things because I do not want to make the trash or recycling too full.

No, never had a taco shell casserole Hope that you get your shipping today,

I hope I do too. I want to play with yarn again. A friend's dad posted a recipe for it a few weeks ago and again today. I want to try it, but I was thinking of not using shells, just making the mixture and then putting it over baked potatoes.

i found out yesterday that my magic scarf/face mask that I'm giving my best friend for Christmas is going to arrive Friday. Since she is very worried about the virus, I'm going to wash the magic scarf when I get it and then put it in a gift bag. I know she is going to like the magic scarf. My leg is not hurting today. I may be getting the mail later today because I got a coupon for some free litter.

I am glad your leg feels better today. That's a nice present for your friend, I'm sure she'll appreciate the early present. I usually let one of the other relatives get the mail unless I am waiting on something, then sometimes I'll get it.
